Ok so. I just got a hard drive from a friend and put it in my old computer to try to fix it up to sell it. But when I turn on the computer I get a error (not by the computer) but by the monitor saying its starting up a higher resolution that the monitor can handle. It shows the windows loading screen. I have also when into bios and changed around the setting and stuff. This computer is running onboard video (fail) and I do not have a PCI video card to test it out with. I have also tried safe mode and it says the same thing. Can someone shed some light on my problem?

He bought a new HD and gave me his old one. I am putting this hard drive into an old computer to sell to a friend.
