    Problems here :confused:

    I have a Dell E153fp monitor hook to a Dell dimension 2300.
    My problem is; I installed win xp pro. Was in the process of changing the pixel settings, when I realized that there was only one setting for this.

    I unchecked the "Hide modes that this monitor cannot display" DUH on my part, I may have clicked on a setting that I shouldn't have. The screen went blank.

    The only time that the monitor shows an image at all, is at the start up, showing the OS then gos blank. I here the windows opening music, but no image.

    I tried opening in safe mode, all 3 of them.
    The only thing that comes up, looks like a series of commands that have system/32 in them. Thank you...Robb
