trying to remove malware with a program that requires a safemode boot. The problem I'm having is my signal is out of range.
I've lowered them as far as i can, and it still shows out of range in safe mode. how can I revert to the default monitor setting so I can get safe mode up and running

System win XP
NVIDA Geforce Fx 5200 graphic
Monitor works with both default and geforce

Out of range is usually the screen resolution, it should still load safe mode even if it goes squiggly where the boot screens should be

I guess whats happening is when i go into safe mode. safe mode does not use the NVIDA Geforce Fx 5200 graphic card so I get an out of range. I can't find any options in control panel that would allow me to use the old video card (still in PC).
I have tried hooking up the monitor in the old slote and rebooting and that does not work.
I have used VGA mode, and it powers up but not in safe mode that I need.
Kinda stumptd.

There may be a setting in BIOS to disable the onboard video. You may need to change it.
