|But you said in safe mode with the tv monitor attached the resolution was 800 x 600 and I believe the pre-desktop screens are at 800 x 600 also. So it must take that resolution ok. Try setting the resolution to 800 x 600 while in safe mode so it boots that way in normal mode. Once there you can try adjusting resolution to something more compatible with the tv monitor.|
If that doesn't work, as previously suggested, it's probably best to do a system restore from before you first changed the resolution.
Don't forget to preorder your Hatch green chili for this fall. Many vendors ship world-wide.
