    Hi,

    I have a gaming PC (HP) And My friend came over and tried to fix it, only to wreck it. ):

    He switched the Hz from 60 to 59, and then the Monitor said 'Unsupported video signal.'
    So, I read on the internet to change the Hz back too 60, and the resolution down on another monitor, I did, but now the monitor continues to do this!
    It says Unsupported video signal.
    I already reset the monitor to factory settings, and I can't seem to get it too work.
    I've tried everything, even looking to make sure the settings on my PC weren't being changed (like 60 going back too 59hz)
    So, Please may anyone comment how I can make it work?

    I've tried many obvious things. My model is Toshiba 24L400U 24' tv,
    and the resolution on the tv is 1360 x 736 (Thats max) and windows says that 24' monitors go up to 1900 x 1200...
    Please help!
    !

    when connecting to a tv you are limited to what resolution it runs at

    1360 x 736

    it is a tv not a monitor

    you set it up in your video card software

    Video card software?

    Oh, I was doing it off of System Settings..
    It's hm......
    I think it's more of a tv, The fact being that it does have cable, just not built in but it has a cable channel, But not sure..

    Would you know how to access it on a Windows 8 HP PC?
