  1. According to the manual for your monitor, the HZ means "You can see this message when the signal from the video card exceeds the maximum resolution and frequency that the monitor can properly handle." You are supposed to "Adjust the maximum resolution and frequency that the monitor can handle properly."
  2. Petrofsky -- nice pick up.

    Party9 -- Post if you don't know how to adjust the refresh rate.
  3. Solve the problem by starting windows in normal mode Install the VGA drivers, if the screen goes blank don't worry you know it's going to do it's bit. Wait till the red HDD light on the Case stops flashing.
    Do a blind restart, into safe mode this time, got to Display Properties and bring the resolution slider down to the lowest, which should be 800X600 apply and restart rig in normal mode.
    Should work fine from then on, with the VGA Drivers installed.
  4. Incidentally, under "Resolution" in the specs it says:

    Optimum resolution 1024 x 768 @ 85 Hz
    Maximum resolution 1280 x 1024 @ 65 Hz

    Yours is a CRT monitor. I had a similar problem with my old Sony---by the time the tube had warmed up, the computer had booted past the BIOS prompt, and I never saw it. If you can borrow an LCD monitor, see if it still does it with that.

    To adjust resolution and refresh rate, right-click on the desktop and poke around in that menu.

    i had connected it to LCD also.............still the same problem.............
  9. Remove the CD from the CD/DVD Drive and then boot, or, change the Boot Device Order/Boot Sequence in the BIOS to HDD first and the rest Disabled.
    You'll get to the windows Logon Screen and see the Pre Login Animation too. :)
