My 4yr. old played with my old pc. (win 98) During start-up I get the Windows logo, everything seems to be going fine, then the screen appears black with iterference lines. I'm sure he must have done something to the display properties, however without being able to see, I am helpless. I do not know DOS.
Any help would be greatly appreciated and would prolong my son's lifespan. :evil:

I have just installed several new machines in a lab and am now getting "input signal out of range." I think one of the students changed the settings but I can't get to the display properties because the screen is blank as soon as the machine boots. Any ideas and thanks in advance. :rolleyes:

I've got input signal out of range evertime I start my comp.I had a program called reforce,I accidently changed the screen resolution and hz to 1024x768 120hz,don't think my monitor can handle 120hz.I did change resolution to 640x480 in safe mode but it doesn't work.I've got xp,need help thanks.
