hi,

go to start
control panel - using classic view.
double click display.
settings > advanced > monitor > put a check mark in - hide modes that this monitor cannot display
set your screen refresh rate.

cheers...xxx1

Well, I don't think that Vision can currently see anything at all on the monitor. Try this: Restart, and tap F8 as the computer comes up, before the Windows loading screen. Select VGA mode. Once Windows loads, change your resolution and refresh rate back to something that your monitor can handle. Restart again, and let it boot normally.
