which uses the native VGA drivers but allows you to change the resolution and other settings for the ATI drivers. This is the same way you would do it if you changed video cards.
<span id="INSERTION_MARKER">Hello, My problem started a few hours ago when I bought a new HP Pav HPE PC from Best Buy. I've been using an old NEC monitor for years but recently had acquired a Toshiba TV that could be used as a PC monitor so I thought I'd use that however when I plugged it in using the standard PC monitor cable all I got was a black screen.
So I went back to the NEC monitor for the setup and it worked fine. After the setup however, I noticed the screen was streched and when I checked the display settings under "Display" it read TOSHIBA TV meaning that the tv was recognized but just wasn't displaying correctly. (There's a question coming I promise) So I went into the ATI Radeon's utility the "Catalyst Control Center" and began looking through some settings to see if there was anything in there about TV monitors- here's where my problem started- i accidently clicked a checkbox marked "Composite Sync", the screen went black, and then the NEC monitor gave me a Video Input error reading "OUT OF RANGE", "H: 41.0 kHz - V: 51.3 Hz" I then did a force shutdown/restart hoping that the setting didn't stick and when the screen got past the boot it went black again and gave me same error- so I restarted and entered Safe Mode w/Networking (which is how I'm running it now).
So finally my question: How can I undo the "Composite Sync" setting from Safe Mode if the ATI drivers aren't loaded and I can't access the Catalyst Control? I've tried System Restore twice and both times it failed. I'm hesitant to try anything more to not dig myself into a deeper hole. Any solutions or advice is welcome and thank you in advance.
