I have a laptop, but the backlight burned out so I bought a L1975NW to use as the main monitor for another year, at which point I planned on buying a new computer. Everything was working fine, but today when I turned on my computer the display looked zoomed in and when i moved my mouse to the edges of the screen, it would scroll in order to be able to display that part of the screen. I checked the display settings for my computer and they were as they were before (1280 x 800). Then I looked at what the monitor itself was set to and it was 1024 x 768 for some reason. I can't change this at all.
The weird thing is that when my computer is turning on and is at the loading screen, the monitor is at 1280 x 800, but right before it gets to the user account screen it turns black for a few seconds and switches to 1024 x 768. I have an ATI Mobility Radeon 9600 graphics card by the way. Like I said, everything was working fine yesterday.

Click on the apple icon in the upper left corner and select "System Preferences" from the menu to open the preference panel. Then click "displays" on the panel (it should be listed under hardware and will have a monitor icon). There you can see all of the resolution options.
Hi, Please reduce display resolution of computer/ laptop to solve "out of range" error because laptop is producing high resolution video signal and monitor hardware is unable to show that much higher display resolution so causing that error message. Let me know what Windows version (XP, Vista, 7) is running in laptop to provide you more info or check Display Properties in control panel and change it to lower resolution to get picture in monitor. Thanks.
the backlight is intergrated under the silver metal shield and is attached to the inverter via a cable, usually white and pink, or just white, try unplugging this cable and replugging it if your having backlight issues, sometimes the pins corrode and need a jiggle to get a good contact again.
It sounds like you have a monitor with a common problem, this series ofWestinghouse monitors are known to have this issue. After a few yearssome LCD monitorswill blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts calledcapacitors overheating in the confined space of he monitor. When thecapacitors blow out they also damage the driver MOSFETs. If you aregood at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix he problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm You can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts, replace any that look like the picturesand your monitor should work fine. The capacitors do need to beinstalled with the correct + and - connections, note the stripe on theold one and insert the new one the same way. I am putting together astep by step repair guide for this series of LCD monitors, it should beup by 07/11, check my web site for the guide. Repair parts kits are also available for $16.95 If you don't want to trythe repair yourself we offer a repair servicefor $35 plus shipping. If you are not going to repair it we will buy it from you for parts, we pay $30 for dead/as-is units.
I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.
