Hello,
Does anyone know how to reset the cpu graphics card to 60hz in safe mode?

I changed the refresh rate too high when setting up the CPU to work with a TV. Now it comes up and says that it is out of range. I am not able to get to anything because the screen is black and has that message on it. I can get in on safe mode but it will not allow me to make change nor will it let me do a system restore either. The monitor works fin on the other CPUs just not on this CPU.

The graphics card is a Geforce.

it should work straight from the display settings in windows itself... I've done it several times myself... the graphic drivers arent loaded when in safe mode but that shouldn't prevent you from changing the settings in windows.

Kari,


I hear the CPU running, and the problem is I cannot see my desktop anymore to make those changes in normal mode.

Is there a reset button for the graphics card externally?

the idea was to do them in safe mode... :) 

nope no buttons, since it's a software setting in windows.

edit
just re-select the 60Hz from the menu and click ok, reboot into normal, and it should stick...
