    Unfortunately, you can't usually change the resolution in Safe Mode but go in there any then press the Windows key and R together and into the Open box, type msconfig and press Enter.

    Click the BOOT.INI tab in teh form taht shows up and put a tick in the /BASEVIDEO box, click Apply and Ok your way out. Restart into Normal Mode, tick teh "Don't show this message again" box and hit Enter then you will probably see horrible 800 x 600 graphics but you should be able to change that in Display options then go back into System Configuration (msconfig() and remove the tick you put in earlier. One more restart into Normal Mode ought to do the trick.

  3. JohnnyBoy31, this thread is nearly three years old and the OP has probably found a fix by now.

    It's best to confine your advice to threads where the last post was no older than two months.

    Closing time for this one now, methinks.
