Video Mode not Supported

Question

I'm having a weird problem with my video display and I'm not sure how to fix it. It may have been a result of me trying to treak the resolution to my display, but what is happening is that I get a "video mode not supported" screen upon booting up the computer.

I can then start it in safe mode and, after removing the video driver, restart it successfully. I don't have to install a driver, it seems to search and do so automatically. The strange part is that the computer is able to shut down and successfully boot up ONCE, but subsequent attempts to reboot after shutting down get me back to the "VIDEO MODE NOT SUPPORTED" screen, and the entire fun process reoccurs.

I just don't know the procedure to fix this. Could anyone please help me with this nusiance???

The monitor is a DAWEOO F227B,

I run WinXP home operating system.

Thank you very much in advance for your time and help.

Michael

This question was answered on May 31, 2004. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

This message generally relates to the compatibilty between the graphics card and monitor It simply means your monitor is incapable of viewing whatever settings the graphics card has

This may be due to an outdated Monitor driver of Windows allocating a basic driver to it

Click on start > Control Panel > Disply > Settings then click on Advance then Monitor Check the "Hide Modes This Monitor Cannot Display" and choose the highest refresh rate available

If you have a graphics card then do the same for the graphics card The settings should be in the same Advanced area under the cards tab

Still in display > Settings alter the resoultion to the next lowest say 1024X768 with 24 bit color

See if that works.
