Try to look for documentation on you lcd display.. usually lcd displays have a native resolution and attempting to work with a different one, although possible, is not recommeded. if you don't remember what your previous resolution settings were try to use system restore by going to start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system restore and restore to an earlier time (no data will be lost) and if you go back before you install adobe design.. you may have to reinstall it again.

hope this helps.

My monitor says out of range


You have set the resolution or refresh rate of your display adapter to a value which is too high than what is supported by your monitor.
In order to fix this, you have to do the following:
1. Reboot your computer & press F8 to boot into Safe Mode.
2. Once in Safe Mode, open Device Manager.
3. Remove the display adapter device driver form Device Manager.
4. Reboot your computer again. Windows will boot up normally & will detect the display adapter. It will prompt you for the device driver for the display adapter.
5. Use the CD that came with your display adapter to install the device driver. Once done, your problem is fixed.

Tips on how to adjust computer's resolution and what needs to be considered


Everybody likes a nice looking display but of course it's beyond our control. Check out the things that we need to consider about the resolution adjustment.
  1. The highest resolution of the monitor.
  2. The resolution of the Video card.
Why? The monitor can only handle a limited resolution let's say you have a monitor that has a resolution of 800X600 and you have a video card with a resolution of 1280X1024, you can increase the resolution up to 1280X1024 but since your computer can only handle up to 800X600 the display will look really bad like a double vision. I hope you got the Logic of that. For example, personally, my built computer is not a high-end type of computer and the video card I'm using is a 512MB 2048x1536 but since my monitor can only handle 1024x768, that's what my resolution is. I move it up to a higher resolution, I get a black screen. Now, if you want to increase the resolution of your computer consider both the monitor and the video card. Of course it would be best if both the video card and the monitor has equivalent resolution or much better the monitor to have a higher resolution than the video card for upgrade purposes.

Now, to adjust the computer's resolution:
  1. Right Click on your desktop.
  2. Click on Personalize.
  3. Click on the Settings tab.
  4. There you will find the drop down for the resolution of the video card.
  5. Select the desired resolution. The higher the resolution, the finer it looks.
  6. If it gets blurry, black, or simply goes bad or grainy, it means that the monitor cannot handle that certain resolution, so lower it down.
  7. Click Apply.
  8. Click OK.
There you go! Should you have any questions feel free to post a reply on this post and I'll be more than happy to help you out with it. Thank you for choosing FixYa! Have a good one. A 4 thumbs up and a comment will be greatly appreciated.

How to change your Windows 7 display settings

In Windows 7 there are serveral ways to get to your display settings. I have detailed them below in options so that you can access them as needed.

Option 1

Right click on your desktop and select "Screen Resolution"

Option 2

1. Right click on your desktop and select "Personalize"

2. Next click on "Display"

3. Click on "Adjust resolution"

198b5a3.png
Option 3

1. Click the Start button and click Control Panel

2. Next click on "Display"

3. Click on "Adjust resolution"
Once you are in the Screen Resolution you can set the resolution you want.

Note the resolution that is set now is a wide screen resolution. If you have a standard monitor the equivalent resolution would be 1280 x 1024.

After you have made the needed changes click on Apply then OK to save your changes.

Note if you are still have trouble with your monitor displaying right you may need to install the monitor drives. Windows is not going to have the actual drivers for all monitors. So in picture below you will see where is shows "Generic PnP Monitor" this means that the computer is using a generic driver. You can access this screen by clicking on "Advance Setting".

If you need to install the monitor drivers the link below will take you through the steps of installing the monitor drivers.

I have a dell Optiplex gx260. I bought a nice big Acer 23"monitor 1920x1030 but the max resolution in the graphics properties is 1280x1024 so I get a stretched screen or a poor resolution


jenny_beech

The resolution 1920x1030 is not a standard resolution. Also at the time this computer came out you did not have monitors this big ether. So you most likely will not be able to get 1920x1030 on this computer. However if you install the drivers for the monitor on the computer you should atleast get the right aspect ratio so you have poor resolution. You should have a CD with the drivers on in it. The llink below will show you haw to install them maually in Windows 7 if the drivers are not in an installer. Let me know if you need the steps for Windows XP.

Dear sir , i have an intex branded desktop with 17' TFT monitor . i m using windows XP in this system . sir today i increase the resolution of visual from XP and just after that my monitor gives an error...


Obviously the graphics card is not capable of supporting the resolution you have set so it go's blank.
Although you can set the resolution via the computer the system will not change it back when you save that setting even though you see nothing, the computer doesn’t know you can’t see anything.
You need to go into the monitors menu (a button on the monitor front panel) and set it back to a supported resolution or default.
Start at 600x800.
Once you see an image on the monitor right click the desktop go to properties then settings and slid the screen resolution bar to the right to a resolution that suits you don’t go to high or you will get the same problem.
1024x768 would probably suit you.
Hope this helps.

I turn on the computer and theirs no video on the screen for the boot up? and i replaced the agp video card and still no picture on the computer screen


1. You possibly have the resolution set to high for the monitor.
2. If you have a monitor that has a peak resolution at 1280X780 and your video card default is at 1920X1080 (HD High Definition) you will not see any video data.
Check your resolution setting in the display ( control panel)
Usually a new video card come with a (GUI -graphical user interface to set the display to proper resolution /check your user manual for the setting feature.
I hope this helps. Have a great day.

I have a Compaq Presario 5420 computer and bought


You'll have to update your drivers for your video card by going to the Mfg. website and seeing if they have any later drivers than you're currently using. In my case, the 1440x900 monitor was recognized when I downloaded later updates, though upon initial installation it wasn't recognized. My card is an ATI from about 6 years ago.

First, we'll try setting the correct screen resolution. Go to an area of your desktop that has nothing on it and right-click with your mouse. Select the "settings" tab. See if your monitor is described properly in the drop-down box. If not, you may have to install drivers for it to get the proper resolution. Take a look at the slider and see if you can slide it to the proper native resolution for your monitor.

You can always try uninstalling the current driver. Go to control panel | system, click on the hardware tab, then click on the device manager button, expand "Display adapters" then delete your default display device. The best then then is to reboot Windows and let it find your display adapter. Possible that it will boot into the proper resolution, but if not, follow the above directions again, but this time don't delete the driver, instead right-click and select, "update driver." Let's see if that works for you.

I have a 19inch LCD monitor and the main menu resolution screen keeps blinking and wont go off. Have tried to disable it, different settings but it still does it. Can you help please


Try setting your computer itself to a lower resolution first say

1024 x 768

It may be that you are pushing the resolution to high for the monitor to handle

Showing message out of range


Your monitor settings within windows are set too high for the monitor to display... When computer first boots.. be ready and press the F8 key...
Enter safe mode.. Reset the display properties in control panel to 800 by 600 for a start. Setting the resolution too high past the monitors ability will give you that message.. Most monitors are able to display 1024 by 768 just fine.. Out of range.. means the display settings within windows are out of the monitors range of ability to display the screen resolution you have set... Good luck!!

Resolution is too high


You need to start the computer in VGA mode. To do that, turn on the computer. Keep pressing the F8 key every second until a boot menu appears. Select enable VGA mode. The computer will boot to a 640 x 480 resolution. From there you can go to your graphics properties and select a more suitable resolution for your monitor.
