    I've seen this problem on servers connected via a video switch box when the monitor is not quite compatible with the server. (Especially a Sun connected to a PC VGA monitor.) Did you recently purchase a new (or used) monitor?

Says that it is out of range 75hrz

Your graphix card are trying to output a 75hrz picture, while your monitor probably does not support more than 60 etc. Most LCD's today only support 60, while earlier CRT's often supported 75 etc.

Have you changed your monitor lately? If so, change it back, go to where you change monitor resolution. Then you will probably have to choose advanced settings, and monitor or something like that to find where to lower the hrz. Need to know your Os to say exactly how.

White and red box saying out of range

The resolution of the display is set higher than what your monitor can support. Boot into Safe Mode, Right click on display, Properties, Settings, at Screen resolutions select the default resolution of your monitor 1024x768 or 1280x1024, depending on the version .

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!!

Can you help me my computer says input signal out of range

This has to do with the refresh rate (hertz) of the monitor and whether the graphics card is capable of operating at that rate. So your graphics card is operating at a rate that is too high or too low for you monitor to receive. I've run into this when trying to use a giant monitor with an older graphics card. Are you doing that? Try a generic plug and play 17inch monitor and see if that works. Go into Control Panel, open Appearance and Themes, open Display, go to Settings Tab and click Advanced. You will see tabs for Adapter and Monitor. There you will find what is and is not supported as far as resolution and refresh rate.

Game comes on. You can hear it but you can't see it

Reinstall the game the resolution for the game maybe out of range for the monitor, this will set the resolution back to defualt. does the monitor say "out of range or out of frequency" when the screen goes blank? if so it is the monitor being incompatible with the current resolution setting. if you changed monitors recently this may be why. Otherwise it is not compatible with your existing graphics card

Out of range displayed on monitor

Out of rang on a monitor has nothing to do with wireless.
Out of rang on a monitor means that the settings on the video signal are too high for it to show. The fix is to lower the video settings. You can start your computer in safe mode to change the settings if you don't have a better monitor to access it.
