Perhaps your graphics card or onboard graphics is set for too high a resolution - try 1024x768 for a 17in monitor and the refresh rate at 85MHz (the minimum to prevent flicker).

Also, if you go to Display Properties>Settings tab>Advanced>Adapter tab, you will see a button on the bottom left marked List All Modes.

This will detail just what resolution settings your graphics card can manage.

Or perhaps the graphics card drivers are corrupted or are not installed.
