    Thank you so much in advance for any advice.

    I am not sure if this is in the correct section of the forums, so apologies if it isnt! I have a GTX 660ti. When plugged into my 1080p television, it works perfectly. However, when I plug in my 17" dell flatpanel, it says "not supported" across the screen. Is my GPU too advanced for me to use a small monitor? I have tried changing my resolution much lower, then turning the pc off, then plugging in the 17", still not supported. Is there something I have to do in bios?

    hiya,start your PC tapping F8 to get into safe mode,once in safe mode go to start and type msconfig in the search box,click the boot tab and put a tick in the "Base Video" box and click OK.reboot and everything will be big because it is t its lowest resolution,from here you can adjust the screen resolution to what you want,remember to go back to msconfig and remove the tick from Base Video

    Refresh rate needs to be about 60Hz and, as said, the resolution needs to be correct.
