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.

My monitor is displaying sideways on a hp montior


It sounds to me like you have Hotkeys enabled and accidently pressed them.

To rotate screen view you can do the following using the keyboard arrow keys in conjunction with pressing CTRL key and ALT key at same time:

Ctrl-Alt-Up - right side up

Ctrl-Alt-Right - 90 degrees

Ctrl-Alt-Down - 180 degrees

Ctrl-Alt-Left - 270 degrees

To locate HotKeys and disable navigate here:

Start >> Control Panel >> Display >> Settings >> Advanced

Subject to your monitor/graphics card you may need to click a few mor tabs to see HotKeys.

Hope this helps. Best Regards -md

No display


Heres what you do. Completely unplug that machine form the power source and pull out the BIOS battery. Looks like a watch battery on the system board. Nice and shiney, cant miss it.

Wait about a minute or 2 and put it back in, connect power and power on and it should work.

This resets the BIOS to factory defaults and it should detect whatver video option you have ( i.e onboard or video card. )

If you plan to use your PCI Video card then you should be able to set it in the bios to boot that first.

Let me know, good luck.
