Default Re: LCD Monitor

You are setting the resolution higher then it can handle.

Edit: Sorry for not enough details. Make sure that your settings are set to a resolution it can support. It is possible your previous monitor supported a resolution that was larger then it could. LCD monitors don't have resolution as good as CRTs at this time. 17" LCDs can often only attain 1280X1024 and nothing higher.

Read the edit. Plug in your old monitor and set the resolution to something that will be in the range. I'm pretty sure it is it. If not, I don't know.
