    Can anyone help - we have just moved our Samsung LCD into my sons room - it works fine with his PS2, but not with an old Dell pc. It boots up fine and shows the dell and xp logos going through their routines, then the screen goes blank and the message 'Mode not supported' comes up. Is the pc too old, or is there something incompatible that we could change (cheaply)?:lease:
