Refresh Rate set to high....... [; ; winNT4]
I have a computer that had its refresh rate set to 120hertz way over what the monitor can handle. Now dont get any picture... Is there any way of getting this back? I tried last know good but no luck...

Thanks Detroit...................

What monitor do you have?


detroit Jun 10, 2002 08:45 AM

Sampo gl 19"

Have you tried starting in safe mode?
I believe you can adjust the refesh rate from there.

Wolfy is right, when it starts up you should be able to put it into VGA mode being NT4

gooner Jun 10, 2002 09:10 AM

Bring it down to about 80-90hz, that should be enough

I tried starting in vga mode and running last know good..... Still nothing.
What I guess I will do is run through the login blind and change the settings with keyboard.

Don't run last kown good, put it in VGA mode and go straight in to the desktop change it there and reboot

Putting it into vga mode dont work.

gooner Jun 10, 2002 09:29 AM
