Just installed a new secondhand computer with xp installed. Started working fine but could not change display settings to over 760 x9something. Went through troubleshooter instructions which took me to display, advanced, adapter and finally to automatic. When computer rebooted, no video input message came up. Can anyone help please

Reboot the system press f8 and select "Last known good configuration".

Do you see the bios screen or do you get nothing at all?

Is it a display problem or a system boot problem? How did you go to Last known Good Configuration, when you don’t have display at all? Try with a different monitor to duplicate if the issue with the monitor or the system.
