    I recently had a computer built for my home theater. It is a 1GB AMD with a Verto GeForce 6600 GTC video card. I have had a hard time setting the resolution on my projector, but finally got HDTV, 720p to work OK. I am using it in Clone Mode and last night made some adjustments and now neither screen will come up when starting the computer. I see the Windows welcome screen on both then blank. Any advice on how to get into the system. Secondly, I'm having a hard time getting the DVD decoder set up properly. I'm trying to use the new NVIDIA decoder, but now all of a suddent, Microsoft Media Player want recognize a DVD. It says my license has expired. Any advice on getting better quality with my projector and with getting into the system would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Pressing F9 before XP boots up gives you the option of booting in safe mode. Its either that or F8. This will allow you to get into VGA Mode
