Video card not working after resolution switch when booting windows

  1. Hello!

    A friend of mine just bought a new flatscreen monitor but when booting up the monitor switches off when the resolution changes after windows starts. My guess is that the resolution that were set is uncompatible with the new monitor. Though when we changed back to the CRT monitor it had the same problem. I have had the same problem but then I solved it by booting windows in failsafe mode, uninstalling the video card and reinstal it. The problem with this were that he had a asus P5W DH Deluxe motherboard and we could not find the button to call up the windows boot menu. Normally you press F8 but this don´t work, neither does any other F button. Maybe I´m out on a wild goose chase so if anybody knows what the problem is or how to solve our "button problem" I would be very gratefull!

    Thanks in advance.
