Mode Not Supported problem
My LCD monitor just lost the signal from the PC (Message signal lost). I can boot it up in safe mode but normal booting just gives a black screen. It has been working fine for years with no problems.
As it worked in safe mode I thought OK cables are ok took card out reseated it but still the same problem.
I bought a new video card and now the problems start. With the card installed the moment I turn on the PC the monitor displays the message Mode Not Suuported H31.4 V 44.5.
I can see nothing apart form this I have researched this error and the answer is go into safe mode and adjust the rate but I can not. I just get the above error message and a black screen cant see a thing. If I change the card back to the old one I can get into safe mode again.
Any thoughts greatly appreciated
Mode not supported problem
Not much luck I am afraid.
With Old Graphics card
Right click on Desk top shows only the following options View Sort by Refresh View Personalise no display properties looked in personalise and found Display Settings option (all I could find) Set resolution to 1024 x 768 and 16 bit color display.
Found an advanced button clicked it it brings up a box headed (Default monitor) and properties
Clicked monitor tab and it says use hardware default settings for screen refresh rate
Hide not supported modes tick box is greyed out.
Boot up and still just the black screen in normal mode but boot up in safe mode again and the settings have been retained. Screen has a blue and white stripe effect with these settings. I do not think the video card drivers load when booting into safe mode.
Went to control panel no display properties icon went to device manager display adaptor click and see Nvidia8400 card right click select properties and see the following tabs General Driver Details Resources no where to carry out the sugestions you made in this option.
What can we try now am having no luck so far :(
