    i turned on my pc this morning and a screen popped up saying "xga resolution out of range" ...
    now i can't change that from the display setting because the "inforamtion" message that i just described is in the format of the monitor, meaning that it came directly from the monitor itself and not the computer.
    the lcd now has thin white lines through the screen and although i can still use the computer it bugs me, and the screen is obviously smaller. i tried the settings at the side of the lcd, but that didn't help.
    i have a radeon 7200, kinda outdated i know, but it has always worked fine with this all of a sudden it craps out .

    thanks for your help

    Boot into safe mode and lower the refresh rate/resolution.If the problem persists re-install the monitor drivers and or graphics card drivers.Graphics cards have also been known to just "crap out".
