I am Working with a Dell Windows Xp Home with SP-2 installed. It has no
viruses or spyware. There are three users - the parents are both
administrators and son is a limited user.

When the mother switches users, she receives this message "cannot display
this video mode" when switching users. After this, it goes into a test mode
on the screen (with the color block). She then has to reboot the system to
get my monitor back.

Can someone explain and advise on the corrective action.?

Thanks. Zonny

Ensure you have the latest graphics drivers from the graphic card
