    I downloaded a 3d game engine called fly3d and tried one of the windows demo's. My computer monitor (gateway vx900) went fuzzy and the message INVALID SYNC FREQUENCY came up on the screen. I restarted in vga enabled mode and went and reset my resolution, and monitor refresh frequency back to 70 where it had been since I bought the computer. everything is fine untill I restart the computer, or log off and log back on. Then it goes back to the INVALID SYNC FREQUENCY condition again. What can I do to not have to start in vga enabled mode every time?!?!

    thanks!!

    Get into Windows and then uninstall the game. If that fails, see if you have a System Restore point in System restore. Restore back to a point before the game. Assuming this is WinXP.

    No problem. It must be the software that is pre-empting your video settings. Removal or restore should work.
