Your windows 7 screen resolution is set too high and your display doesn't support it. There are 3 possible solutions to this problem: 1. Press F8 during startup and choose "Enable row-resolution video" 2. Press F8 during startup and choose "Safe mode" and change screen resolution there, then reboot. 3. You can always use another display (if you have one) to set screen resolution to lower value.
It seems that you might have changed your Windows resolution to a much finer resolution that your monitor cannot accomodate. Restart your computer. Once you get a black screen (before the computer powers up), tap F8 repeatedly until you get the Windows Advanced Boot Option similar to the picture below.
Highlight safe mode with networking by pressing the "UP" arrow key then press "enter" key twice. Log on to your account. Click on "start". Open "control panel". Launch Display settings and change resolution by sliding to the lowest or to the left. Press "ok" button. Restart your computer to Normal mode. Change desired resolution from display settings which your monitor is limited for.
I hope this works for you. Kindly comment for further assistance. Thanks for using Fixya!
I would say that the computer is trying to use a display resolution that the monitor is incapable of displaying. You may have to lower the resolution from the PC before you get a picture. Make sure you install the correct drivers for the monitor onto the new computer and use a different monitor to adjust the display resolution to a level that the monitor is capable of displaying.
Try these 2 steps if they don't work get back to me :)
Step 1. Connect the video cable and turn on the computer. What happens?
the monitor screen remains blank (no startup screens or onscreen
display messages), the monitor must be connected to another computer
using a different cable to determine if the monitor is bad. Skip to the
Step to connect the monitor to another computer.
If the monitor is capable of displaying boot screens but is unable to
display Windows, use the following steps to set the computer to a
the native display resolution for your monitor in the User Manual or in
the product specifications for the monitor model. If you are unable to
find the native display resolution for your monitor model, temporarily
use 1024x768 for troubleshooting purposes.
Turn on the computer and press the
key repeatedly when the first startup screen appears.
If you are using Windows Vista, select
Enable low resolution video (640 x 480)
, and wait until Windows opens. To set display settings that match the monitor, use the steps in the HP support document,
Changing Display Settings, Background Image, and Screen Saver in Windows Vista
If you are using Windows XP, select
Enable VGA Mode
, and wait until Windows opens. Continue using these steps to set display resolution.
If you are using Windows 98 or ME, select
and perform the following steps to enter into a standard VGA mode:
Once Windows opens to the desktop in Safe Mode, click
In the Open field type
The MS Configuration Utility window appears.
button, and select
VGA 640 x 480 x 16
if it is available.
and restart the computer.
After Windows opens, click
, and then click
In the Open field type
button, and remove the checkmark next to
VGA 640 x 480 x 16
. Do NOT restart the computer.
After Windows opens, right-click on an open area of the desktop and select
(Windows XP, 98/Me) or
In Windows Vista, Scroll down and click
In Windows XP, 98, or Me, click the
In Windows Vista, select the native display resolution size using the Resolution slider. Set Colors to
Highest (32 bit)
In Windows XP, select the native display resolution size using the Screen resolution slider. Set Color Quality to
Highest (32 bit)
In Windows 98 or Me, select the native display resolution size using the Screen Area slider. Set Colors to
after you have made your adjustment.
The screen should blank out temporarily and come back.
If you are satisfied with the new display settings, click
on the Monitor Settings windows. If you are not satisfied or if the
screen just goes black, wait: Windows sets the screen back to the way
it was before. Try another setting until you find a display
configuration that is compatible with the monitor and meets your needs.
the native resolution is not available, download and install updated
video driver software for your computer. Updating the video driver
software can add more resolutions (graphics modes).
Restart the computer. The monitor should now display a full screen image in high quality. You are done.
Step 2: Connect to another monitor
a different cable, connect the monitor to another computer that has
video. Turn on the monitor and the newly connected computer. What
the monitor works, the video hardware on the original computer is
likely to be the source of the problems. You can try connecting the
original computer to another monitor that works to update its video
If the monitor remains blank, repair or replace the monitor.
The default resulution is 1024 x 768, you can keep the Screen Refresh list at 75 Mhz
If you have been at "Out of Range" then you need to reboot and press F8 before windows load up, then choose VGA Mode. When windows finished loading you can fix the resolution again as you like. Hope this fix your problem
This issue may occur if the signal from the video adapter
exceeds the scan range of the monitor. The video adapter setting for updating
the screen (the refresh rate) is incompatible with the monitor. you should reinstall your video drivers in safe mode.
To restart in safe mode repeatedly press the F8 key during the computer startup. This will bring a menu where you'll be able to choose safe mode.
You can see your monitor ranges ;
right click desktop -> properties -> settings -> monitor
You'll see Screen refresh rate here
under the that there is a box "Hide modes that this monitor cannot display" click that.
Now computer shows your monitor range in list. When you select bigger value different than list , gives error " OUT OF RANGE "
