monitor error message when game starts
i have a Dell In1910n lcd monitor, worked fine until last night when i loaded ql on prism as always and when the game started (not the website or loading page, they work fine), the monitor clicks off and i get a dell error message on the monitor, "the current input timing is not supported by the monitor display. change in put timing to 1366x768 @60 hz or any other timing supported by this monitor" or something to that effect.
been playing for years on this monitor without incident, suddenly there's this?
Your r_mode or r_displayrefresh must have changed for some reason. Just change it back and make sure it's not saved in a autoexec.cfg

Did you adjust the resolution at all? What res do you normally play in?
When that happens how do you get out of it?
how do i change it back? log in on another machine? I figured my settings had changed, i certainly didn't change my r-mode or r-displayrefresh. I tried deleting and re-installing quake live to no effect. I also tried resetting all settings.
what do i change it to? what should it be?
when it happens i have to alt+f4 to terminate. this closes the game but not the quakelive browser.
I never changed my resolution, in fact i couldn't find any game resolution controls in the settings. for one thing you have to be logged in to an actual game, so i can't see on my machine, and when i logged in on another machine, i found no screen resolution settings under video settings.
What if when the screen is black, you hit alt+enter?
That should switch to windowed mode, at which point you could set default resolution settings:
Then try going fullscreen again:
