Question about Asrock P4I45GV R5 Motherboard
Formatted with xp but the Monitor wont show. It only displays 'sync out of range' I'm really gettin nervous cos i nid my system back on.
Hi, my name is Alex and im here to help sort your problem out.
It sounds to me like you need to change the herts configuration of the monitor and also the resolution you have your monitor set to. It should be set by default to 60 herts. Also, the resolution is best set at 1024 x 768. To set these, you need to right click anywhere on the desktop and click properties
To change the reolution.
Click start, configuration, display. Slide the cursor until you display 1024 x 768
To change the herts.
Click start, configuration, display, advanced options, monitor and make sure it is set to 60 herts.
I hope this helps. Please let me know if you experience more problems.

Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barely
see the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.
Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves your video card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.
If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works, then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash light and nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card is bad.
For a Desktop:
Try using another monitor on the computer. Borrow a
monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it
to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor shows the display then your
original monitor is bad. If the Borrowed monitor does not show on the
display then you Video Card is bad.
