  1. Hi there,
    I have two annoying problems with my pc which I think are video related.
    First is a little white box when I boot up saying
    'frequency out of range
    please change the display mode to 1280 *1060' and it keeps travelling round the screen.
    I have changed the settings but to no avail.

    Secondly on initial boot up the screen displays then goes blank and the only way to retrieve it is to hibernate or go to standby and then start.

    Thirdly when I watch videos there are little green lines that make the image almost 'unwatchable'.
    I have xp a radeon video card I think and software is ATI.

    any help would be most appreciated.
