ATTENTION - Frequency is out of range?
Hi,

New system, new problems, my new system is currently sat with a black screeen showing a small red and blue box. In the red part of the box is the word ATTENTION and in the blue part of the box the words 95k / 59hz FREQUENCY IS OUT OF RANGE.

I can hear the windows startup wave in the background but all I have is the black screen with the red and blue box.

Has somebody tried to overclock the system ? If so go into the bios and bring the frequency down either by multiplier or fsb.

Hi Mobo,

No one has overclocked the system, when I had it the system was set wrong with a 100mhz fsb, I changed it on the advice of AMD to a 166mhz fsb and all worked fine until now.

I tried dropping the fsb back to 100mhz and 133mhz but I'm still getting the same warning.

Howdy there CuttingCrew...

Try booting the pc in Safe Mode, and change the monitor refresh settings...

Hi Jedi,

Excuse my ignorance but can you take me through the process of booting in "Safe Mode" and changing the monitor refresh rates.

Start tapping the F8 key during boot, and choose Safe Mode...

Usually right click on a blank spot on the Desktop (Or Start - Settings Control Panel - Display ) - Properties Settings tab - Advanced button - Monitor tab - and lower the refresh settings ( this is in XP if you are using W98 I'll have to boot a W98 pc to be sure...)...
