After Windows updates, the screen fonts get large and computer shuts down. Upon restart, got Warning Message PC Video Resolution is out of Range. Set screen resolution to 1280/1024. Normally, I can reboot and go into Safe Mode and change the screen resolution. After doing this several times, this process would no longer work, - kept getting error messages. I did a restore -- didn't work. Did a recovery but got the same screen resolution out of range message. Rebotted and tried to go into Safe mode, but error came up -- Windos cannot complete installation in Safe Mode. When I hit ok, pc shutdown!
How do I get around the OUT of RANGE Warning message and reset the screen resolution if I can't go into SAFE MODE?

Try going to F8 options and choose Last Known Good Configuration.
Looks either the resolution is set higher than your monitor supports and/or your video driver needs to be rolled back.
But from the looks of it a System Restore should do it.
NOTE: Changing your resolution in Safe Mode won't help or stay changed when u reboot normally.

I can definately feel your pain in this situation, but windows vista can be very selective with certain graphics drivers or certain old monitors. How old is this monitor?
