    Hello joed, and welcome to TechSpot :wave: ! First, does your computer show a boot screen and then go out of range, or show nothing...also make sure your monitor is plugged in correctly with the pins all straight.

    Right before you normally see the Windows splash screen, press F8 (multiple times is fine), and it will bring up a menu of a bunch of boot options. Choose VGA mode. Once you get to the desktop, change your resolution/refresh rate to something that works.
