  1. I changed monitors on an XP computer and had it working fine until I changed the resolution to something this computer OR monitor just couldn't resolve.

    Now the monitor is in a state of balck screen except for in the middle saying Auto Detect is on (Analog) the also shows "Cannot display this video mode", Optimum resolution is 1920x1200 60hz

    The screen cannot be taken off this no matter what I tried.

    Appreciate any help, thanks.

    Reboot the computer and press F8 until you enter Safe Mode... Select VGA and restart
