I am using a Dell 46000 computer (4-5 years old) with Windows XP Professional. My graphics card is an NVIDIA GE Force FX 5200. Several days ago I bought a new monitor - an LG W2061TQ, 16:9 monitor. I set the resolution in my Control Panel>Display>Settings to 1600X900, the highest setting available there.
The problem: As soon as I boot my computer, instead of the typical, initial screen appearing (typically for a few seconds) which shows the keys to press to enter the BIOS, and other preliminary screens appearing, a little error message box appears with the following: "Digital out of range - 74.3kHZ/60Hz." Then the Windows "Welcome" screen appears and looks fine. Once my computer finishes booting, my desktop screen also looks fine.
1) What does this error message mean and what can I do to eliminate it?
2) Even with this error message appearing when the bootup process starts, do I still have access to the BIOS if I press the correct keys to access it when the bootup process starts?
Thanks.
Richard

Try lowering the resolution. 1600X900 may be too much for the Nvidia5200.
