pc to LCD hookup problem....

I hooked it up and I see the bios load and see when it shows Windows loading, but then it goes blank after that. I went to safe mode and everything shows up fine. How can I set the resolution down so I can set it correctly when it boots up norm. It was hooked up to a 17'' monitor before this.

thanks

boot in safe mode, then reload your GPU drivers, then reboot.

doesnt sound like the tv is the problem. update drivers for your video card?? make sure its plugged in correctly and it should just be plug and play

should have no problem- if not, just connect your old monitor and do it from there

Might go pick me up a DVI/HDMI cable. I'm pretty sure this VGA cable is holding it back from going to a higher resolution. Only lets me set it to 1360x768. Will that help or is it a waste.
