This is usually an issue with your monitor.
Having said that, Windows 7 is Beta software. Please don't rely on it for anything critical as it will probably fall over unexpectedly.

Thanks mate, i managed to resolve the problem. i got to start up with a lower resolution and then changed the monitor settings.

Now just got to wait for a new driver for my G/card.

Well for start my windows 7 was a fresh install, all i did was let the installation complete, even if i could not see anything on the screen... then finally i booted up and hit f8 and i had the option to start in safe mode. and once that was done all i did was change the screen res and frequency to a lower value... by default set your monitor and G/card to 640 x 800 and it will work fine

Hello!

My friend has the same problem. He has Windows 7 installed on his PC but he can't start it normally because the monitor goes black and displays the error message "OVER-FREQUENCY" with the V=60.*Hz, H=70.*Hz (something like that, not sure of the numbers) on the screen.

I tested his CPU on another monitor (which is my monitor, not same brand) and it did fine. Windows 7 started normally.

I did the following things hoping that they will fix the problem:

1) I restored the monitor's factory settings by using the recall function.
2) Started on Safe Mode and picked the lowest possible resolution and refresh rate...640X480 60Hz, 16-bit color.

But to no avail. What could be causing this error/problem? I'm thinking it's the monitor since his CPU worked on my monitor but not on his.

Your help will be much appreciated. Thank you!

Please start your own topic as this topic has not had a response in 5 months now.
Although your issue may seem similar there can be other factors that may need to be resolved.
By bumping on someone's topic it makes it confusing for the tech to understand who they are helping. This can in turn cause the wrong support to be given and can cause instability or worse to happen to your system.
Thank you for your cooperation.
