hey hey hey

Man guess wut I was messing around with stuff like that to and....I did that to my monitor too.but i didnt get the "change back in 15 sec" thing cuz i was over riding the setting. And know wut i had to do. I had to get 2 monitors. hook up the wrking one, then move the mouse to where i had to klick, plug the non working one in, click on it the plug working in , move mouse to where has to go, plug other in clik on it, and on and on till it is back. or you could just try plugging in a diff monitor then changing it. :tazz:

I thought I had this but a cd wont work. As stated previously, I do not have a floppy drive on the problem computer. Powermax only gives me the option of loading onto a floppy disk. A CD will not work as it is not a given option. Suggestions?

Floppy drives are a dime a dozen.. Get one and install it.. That may be your last option now!!

Or, take the system to a tech and have them strip it down and re-install..

That would be your best bet.. That way, the diagnostic program can be run the way it is supposed to!!

Hi poimhn...

I know you said early on that you could not boot into safe mode, but I would like you to try again. If you can get to the Options Screen with all the various safe mode boot up options, look for one to Enable VGA Mode: This option starts Windows in 640 x 480 mode by using the current video driver (not Vga.sys). This mode is useful if the display is configured for a setting that the monitor cannot display. This info was found HERE while researching another problem. Adjust your display settings as you normally would and reboot.

If that doesn't work, a "Trusted Friend" has given me a technique that is a little involved, but with a little patience it will probably work. Give the above option a try first.
