Display Properties

To adjust display settings for your video card and monitor go to the display icon in the Control Panel. Clicking on the display icon will produce a display similar to the one shown below. Figure 57 shows us where to adjust the color. Choosing the Settings tab, we can make the adjustments.

If we choose the Advanced tab, we can change the refresh rate and any other settings particular to the video card and monitor installed.

Safe Mode Video Troubleshooting

If you make a mistake in the refresh rate settings and cannot see the screen, reboot the computer in safe mode and adjust the display settings, and reboot. Safe mode starts the computer with a minimal set of (hopefully known working) drivers. It’s not pretty, but at least it lets you see the screen!
