Just got a brand new computer, hooked it up and turned it on...after it initially started up and I went through the initial setup process for WinXP Media Center 2005, my monitor put up a message "OVER SIZE: RECOMMAND MODE 1280x1024" and the screen went black. Audio appears to be OK and the HD worked.
Was working with HP tech support last night and after booting into Safe Mode, changing the resolution (no luck), and uninstalling and reinstalling the driver (would bring me to desktop after restart but blank out again on subsequent restart), the tech said it could be an incompatible monitor and is telling me to try with a newer monitor.
Any second opinions before I shell out another $300-$400 for a new monitor (to replace one that worked perfectly well with my old computer)?
HP Media Center m7160n
WinXP Media Ctr 2005
Pentium D 2.8 Ghz
1 GB RAM
250 GB HD
Monitor: Princeton Graphics VL173, 17" LCD
Thanks in advance!
