Maybe you're video card is set to a screen area and color depth and refresh
rate that your monitor cannot support.

Try turning down some settings or using a default setup. For exampe, if you
are running at 1024x768, 24-bit color, and 80Hz refresh rate, try lowering
the refresh rate to 70 or 72 Hz, using 256-colors, or 800x600 resolution.
Always check your monitor's owners manual to see what refresh rates it
supports . . . this can be helped if Windows recognizes and supports your
monitor specifically.
