Nope it isn't defective. You don't mention from your question if you bought a LCD type or the CRT type of monitor. But I think you bought a LCD monitor right? My question here is where do you connect it? From the graphic card or in the onboard vga of your motherboard? How old is your graphic card/onboard vga? That is always the problem of an old graphic card because it can't release more pixels that's why it says out of range. Connect your old monitor it will work because it can support your graphic card/onboard vga. Buy a new graphic card with a specification that will suit to your motherboard and to your new monitor before it become a money waste
A Geforce 6200LE would work perfectly with that motherboard, all you have to do is clip it into the AGP8x slot and disconnect your monitor VGA cable from the onboard graphics and into the 6200LE graphics card. Once the Graphics card is inserted correctly and plugged in your sytem automatically disables onboard graphics as it is no longer needed.
If you have not tried to turn off the onboard graphics in the bios then you should do so. When you start your you will be given the option to enter setup( sometimes it is the delete key or one of the F keys }. once you are there simply look for the onboard adapter and disable it there. be sure to save changes before exiting.
actually your computer is working on the onboard video adapter.
1. connect first the monitor to the onboard video card.( do not remove the connected geforce video card.) 2. switch on the computer and press "F2" on new model computer, "Delete" on old model computer. so that you can enter to bios setup. 3. if bios setup is open; try to find the "AGP bridge configuration" (some other bios AGP B C is in chipset) by arrow up,down,side left and right) enter. 4. Find " primary graphics adapter" 5. In there, select : If Video card is "pci" connected ; select "pci" If Video card is "AGP" connected ; select "AGP" 6. press F10 to save and exit the setup. 7. after saving the configuration, disconnect power cord and transfer the monitor to the video card (Gforce). and then connect the ac power cord and then start. or switch on the computer.
Note: be sure to install the drivers of your GFORCE for optimum performance of the card.
hi, go to system bios, i think in the second options check out for primary display , you will have options for add on, or onboard, change it to add on, or there is also an option to disable the primary display somewhere there, browse the bios around , you will find either of it. let me know
try this -remove the card then restart the pc
(if this is xp) start/right click my computer/properties/device manger-look for "display adapters" find the onboard type you have and uninstall it power off then install the new card you might have to look in device manager for something referred to as graphics controller
