Hi folks,
one of the lads in work installed a new RTC card into the pc. There are two monitors attached to it.
After installing the new card, he put the pixel rate up, i can only assume that the display was massive.
Now he had a problem and had to restart the machine. Now it will only go as sar as choose boot mode, and then a screen comes up with out of range 75 - 50 hhz or something to that effect.
I took a look around the bioos, but I dont really know what to do in this situation.
Any help would be great.
Regards,
Kwaoc

Hi kwaoc,

Assuming you use windows, boot into safe mode, there set the resolution of the monitor lower (maximum will be depending on your OS 640x480 or 800x600) choose ok. Boot windows normally and there set the display settings the way you want them to be with a refresh rate of no higher than 75Hz.

Greetings,

LucF

If that doesn't work, look up the specs of the monitor for the range of refresh rates allowed (usually measured in Hz), and set the card within that range.

LucF, I must be on vacation - I didn't see this go by!

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

HI folks,
there was an option in boot mode to boot up in VGA which I did.
I got it working. I actually did it myself as I was away yesterday but fixed it that night.
I think seeing as LucF was the closest I should award him the points?

Why not - LucF had the answer and is a nice guy... but he really doesn't need the points ;-)
