I wasn't sure wehre to post this, so here it goes.

OS: 98SE

The computer will boot up, but when it comes time for the desktop to come, there is an error message from the monitor:

OUT OF RANGE
Hf: 30kHz - 70kHz
Vf: 50Hz - 140Hz


Current:
fh: 94.8 fv: 59

Any ideas?

I wonder if that's the monitor's way of protecting it from bad resolutions. If you try to run a monitor at a resolution it doesn't support, you can damage it.

Can you get in to safe mode ok?

Not a problem getting into Safe mode.
BUt I don't know where to change the settings.

I right clicked on the desktop and went to properties. I tired to change it there, but there wasn't anything for it.
