I have a user with a monitor that is blank. She says she had to change the screen resolution to 800x600 for a program's upgrade (it was at 640x480). Since then, it is blank. I have a feeling she might have changed it to something other than 800x600. She restarted it, and dos shows fine, but when windows loads, there is a pinpoint of light, then a blank screen. With the blank screen, the monitor setting lights blink in sequence...one after the other, over and over, fast.

Old monitor - Imagic IM-550x, model P554.

Has anyone ever seen this? Is there a way for me to change the screen resolution in dos?

Thanks,
Lisa

Howdy mauipono...

Sure, Start tapping F8 during boot ( depending on the OS ) and boot in Safe Mode, then change the resolution back...
