I recently decided that I was sick of using an integrated video card, (and I wanted dual monitors) so I bought a nVidia GeForce FX 5500 PCI.
I tried to install the video card based on what the instructions said... no go, so I did it my own way. Well, it works much better. Actually, it works almost perfectly.
I have disabled my onboard graphics at this point. I now have both monitors connected. One is at 1280x 1024, the other is at 800x600.
Everything works great like this, except! When the computer goes into standby (or starts to) The screen gets many colored lines going down the monitor and I get a message that says "Pixel rate is over limitation. Please choose a suitable one."
It also has WHAT I AM PRETTY SURE, BUT NOT POSITIVE, either above or below the message, "41hz 80khz" or something of that sort.
I have tried setting both monitors to 1280x1024 and both to 800x600. No beans.
I am getting frustrated, so any help would be appreciated.
Thanks much to all that post in response
Sorry, I forgot to mention, the system doesn't recover. The computer restarts after several seconds of being on the odd screen of vertical lines.
Also, this is Windows XP home.
