Hi 14all. What Windows calls Display Adapter, the rest of us calls a Graphics card or Video card. The problem you are having is that the graphics card driver you have installed can't handle the display settings you have chosen. This means that either you have a very low specification card, or it has the wrong drivers. Do you know what card is actually fitted into your machine? When you go into Display Properties, click on Settings - Advanced - Adapter, does the panel report the same card model as you have installed? While you are there, also check that the refresh rate isn't set to high for your card and monitor.
