Re: video card/ monitor out of frequency
Get newer drivers, and fix the resolution of the screen. Ex: 1024 x 768. The greater the resolution the clearer picture you get. A higher resolution on a monitor gives you smaller icons, and a lower resolution gives you big icons, as seen when you enter safe mode.
