That means that it is not capable of going that high.
Causes and solutions:
1) Video drivers have not been installed and you video is running in vga mode. Install the drivers.
2) You have onboard video and the memory is set too low. You need to go into the bios (try DEL at startup) and increase the amount of shared memory allocated to the video.
3) Video is just not capable of it (unlikely unless this is a very old machine or video card), buy the cheapest new video card you can find that fits. Anything new is capable of much higher resolutions than this.

I would have been more specific but not without knowing the make and model of your computer.

My computer monitor shows a message "out of range". I can't get rid of the message or show anything from my computer.

The resolution your computer is sending is greater than the maximum support resolution of your monitor that isn't working or is a resolution not supported. Connect one of the monitors that works and turn down the resolution to something small (800x600 or 1024,768) and then switch to the original monitor back, you should see a picture and can adjust the resolution to something larger that the monitor supports.

How can I fix an "Out of Range" display?

It means that your display card settings are too high for your monitor. Boot your system into safe mode (press F9 as it boots up) and set the display settings lower. Right mouse button click on an empty space on your desktop and go to properties. Then settings->advanced->Monitor and you should be able to adjust the vertical frequency down to 60hz or 72hz. If you get the out of range message on boot up then you will need to try out a different screen on your system, boot into Windows, change the settings and then plug in your original monitor.

Displaying "out of range" when plugged in

Hello white tiger, hi, the out of range error is usually caused by a very high resolution setup on your computer display card that windows installed (generic driver), the monitor simply cannot produce the resolution, set your resolution to a safe level like 1024 by 768, most monitors can display this resolution. The root of this error message is incorrect display driver, you need CD to install the display driver. Once installed your resolution will now be controlled to a safe settings were the monitor can display properly.

Microphone does not seem to be working

The microphone connector is on the rear of the monitor, and you need to connect it to your computer's microphone input jack. The cable is the same kind you would use to connect the audio output jack to the input on a set of computer speakers. Once the microphone is plugged in it works just like any standard microphone. No special drivers are needed for the monitor, but you do need to be sure that the proper drivers for your computer's sound devices have been installed.

If this solution has been what you needed, please take a moment to rate it. Thanks for asking here!

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!!

Digital oven displaying all "8s"

Turn the power off on the range for at least 5 minutes this will reset the computer. Just turning the breaker on and off will not reset it. If this does not fix the problem You need a new clock.
