    Default refresh rate fix...

    I was adjusting my refresh rate and apparently found a setting the monitor doesn't like. When I boot up the BIOS posts, WinXP loading logo appears and then I get a msg from my monitor that says Operating outside of scan range. I was setting the refresh rate up to see how viewing would improve when this happend...how can I set it back down? Might be a stupid newbie question...but then I'm a stupid newbie :)

    Will the system allow you to enter the Advanced portion of your Display Properties? That is where the change was probably made in the first place.

    i don't know that it is possible, but you might try running it in safe mode and seeing if you could fix it in there, also you could find someone with a monitor that would support that refresh rate

    are you not using XP cuz it has a fail safe against this kind of thing
