|"when trying to boot my pc screen shows "input out of range change to 1024*1260-60hz""|
That message is probably being generated by the monitor itself.
Your Windows Display Properties settings for the monitor you're using - resolution and vertical refresh rate - are not appropriate for your monitor model.
It's probably an LCD or Plasma monitor. 1260 X 1024 (I suspect you quoted the numbers in the wrong order - NOT 1024 X 1260, unless you have an oddball monitor and the oddball situation where you want the display height more than the width) at 60Hz is probably the "Optimal" or "Native" settings that your monitor looks best set to.
(If you provide the make (brand) and model of the monitor, I / we could confirm that.)
You can choose other resolutions, but....
- the display will not look as good, the most noticeable thing being the text on the screen will not be as clear
- if the ratio of the first number - width - to the second number - height - is not the same, what you see on the screen will either not be proportioned correctly - it will be stretched horizontally or vertically - or you will see large black bars at the sides or at the top and bottom of the display.
- If the vertical refresh rate is set too high for the resolution setting, you may get no display in Windows.
"press on f8 to open in safe mode brings a blue screen "IDE- 0 sSELECT FIRST BOOT DEVICE."
Some mboard bioses have their own use for something when you press F8 while booting.
Read the screen and find the key or key combo that quits that screen, e.g. Esc, and press F8 immediately and repeatedly after that - then you will be able to select the Windows loading choices from a simple menu - Safe mode or Enable VGA mode, etc.
If you get no video at all in Windows after it starts to load when you attempt to boot normally, you can't change monitor settings that you need to change in Safe mode - you have to use Enable VGA mode....
See response 9 here:
Boot into Enable VGA mode.
Note - that's missing this...
Remove any bootable CDs or DVDs you have in drives.
Press F8 repeatedly while booting, don't hold down the key, starting very early in the boot.
When the Windows loading choices menu appears, choose Enable VGA mode. )
The vertical refresh rate - 60Hz in your case - is set at Display Properties - Settings - Advanced - Monitor
