Try re- installing your video drivers.That should do it.

You may also need the latest Chipset drivers for your motherboard as well. If you are using the 23.11 Nvidia drivers you should also download and install DirectX 8.1

i have tried reinstalling drivers. but that didn't help. i have tried installing 23.11 drivers
and directx 8.1 but that helped neither
i use windows me. i have recently changed my celeron pc to athlon. but the graphic card is old one. could it be that this error is caused by hardware damage or hardware incompatibility?
my video card is nvidia tnt2 m64 agp 32 MB
thanks again

try switching the display adapter to "standard vga" uninstall software for the video card if there is any. boot to safe mode look under the "display adapter" heading in device manager and delete all video adapters except standard vga.
Look under "monitors" heading. make sure there aren't duplicate entries there as well and that the correct one is listed. Reboot. re-install the video card.
hopefully that will do it

hi again
i tried my video card on my friends pc and it was ok.
then i have installed windows xp pro, but id di not start normally. only in safe or vga mode
in safe mode it worked normally up to 1600*1200 (my monitors highest res). but it did not start normally.
then i have installed my old windows 98 SE it even now i can't display with higher resolution.
the windows 98 sent error message (translation from hungarian): the video has problems maybe caused by wrong connections or bad settings
i have found that a7a266 asus motherboards have extra ali agp drivers and installed it. still not working.
please help
