Default Re: GTS 450 - black/blank screen on start-up

If you are using a tube/analog monitor attached to the analog output (or using a DVI to Analog adapter) of the video card, I know many times in the past, I've had a similar problem. It's when the video card outputs a display mode (or resolution) that the analog monitor cannot support, it goes into a sleep mode (frequency out of range). The way to fix it is go in as Safe Mode, change your display to output the proper screen resolution that your monitor supports and restart. That should fix the problem if it's what I described above is your setup.
