    I JUST DID A clean re install of windows xp on my desktop, everything was fine until i decided to change the screen resolution, i tried to change it to a resolution that maybe the system had no driver for, the same monitor attached to my mac, works fine, the monitor is a compaq mv520, on the pc, when i turn on the computer , the screen work, until it gets past all of the setup routines, then it flashes a message, asking if the screen resolution is correct?, complete with question mark, it seem to be the computer, since i tried to attach an e-machine monitor to the same machine to see the result, it too came on and worked until most of the start up routines were done, then just went blank, it went into safe mode and tried to adjust the preferences but to no avail, any advice on a recovery plan is welcome.

    Reinstalling Windows and formatting your HDD in the process, wipes out your drivers.
    Go into Device Manager and if you find any yellow ?'s, those devices need new drivers.
    Go to your motherboard maker's site to look for the drivers.
