Check the refresh rate (on your CRT) - and set it to 60Hz, which is the correct setting for LCD screens. Too high will give you *out of range* type errors.

It would help if you let us know the size of your flat screen.

In the meantime try the following:-

(a) Right click on a blank part of the desktop.

(b) Click on properties.

(c) Click on Settings, then set the resolution to
1280 X 1024.

(d) Click on Advanced > Monitor, then make sure the refresh rate is set to 60 Hertz.

Then Click OK, on next screen click OK again.

The screen should now be OK depending on the size of your Flatscreen.
