Monitor Problem

Hewlett-packard / Vp17
September 12, 2009 at 09:04:31
Specs: Windows Vista Home Premium, 2.00 GB
I turned the computer on one morning, and found the desktop to be extremely zoomed in. It was much larger than standard, and I was unsure why this had happened. Before I got a chance to fix the problem, a white box popped up in the middle of my screen that reads: Input signal out of range Change settings to 1280x1024-60HZ. By itself, its not such a large problem, but every 45-60 seconds, another box pops up that reads: Monitor going to sleep. The monitor enters sleep mode, and I have to restart my monitor. I have tried to change the setting repeatedly, but when ever I open The Control Panel, It will not let me select 60 HZ. Here is an image of the box, my display settings box, and my Selections available. http://i324.photobucket.com/albums/... What can I do? My screen refresh rate is set at the only option available, 70 HZ. What should I do to fix the problem?

I"m almost sure that I have NEVER changed the graphics card. And if I had, it certainly wasn't any time recently.

hey mate
if you have installed the graphics driver properly, you should be able to select 60 HZ

change the setting for the screensaver and powersaver in the driver software of your Videocard and not under Windows.
