A cousin of mine has an old computer and everytime he starts windows normally, the monitor says out of range when windows comes up. He is using win2k.

I just looked at it today, and I can get into safe mode without it doing that. I figure it must be the screen refresh rate, but how do I change this in safe mode so it will stay that way when going back to the normal mode? Also his system was using the default win2k driver for his video card. I tryed to use his driver cd he had but the newest ver of windows it had a driver for was 98. I am going to download the driver today, see if that will help any.

If you set the RR down in safe mode, once you reboot, it normally uses what you last set it to. If not, remove the card and reboot in normal mode.

Learn about the man behind the screen.
