This usually occurs when the wrong video display adaptor (video card) driver is installed. Hooefully you know the card name , and go to the manufacturer site on the web and download the latest drivers for that card.

You should whenever possible write dow the names of the video card/cd rom/sound card/modem/ before you format the drive, and have the driver for the modem card in advance just in case you need other drivers and must get on the internet to get them
