Out of range/Garbled screen.

  1. I just bought and installed a Visiontek Radeon X1300 512 AGP card. Got it installed and working fine. I went and downloaded the Battlefield 2 demo. The first time I ran it I got an "out of range" error. I made some changes to the settings, now all I get is a black screen and some flashing colors.

    I've got my resolution at 1024 X 768 at 70Mhz. I've changed the graphics settings in the game to match. But still get an error.

    For ref. I am using this monitor - http://www.viewsonic.com/support/desktopdisplays/crtmonitors/e2series/e771/ on windows XP SP1.

    Thanks in advance.

    Tryed everything now. Even dropped the refresh rate down to 60mhz and I am still getting nothing. Do I need to jack my monitor/adapter refresh rate up and lower it in the game settings? Are the supposed to match?

    Made a little headway. I found a program called RefreshLock. I got everything set and locked at 70hz now. It lets me play the game alittle longer, but now it does the black screen with "Out of range" again.
