After hooking up my Dell to the monitor it displayed a message ! " Out of range ," the monitor then went black . How do I fix it ?


Your screen resolution or refresh rate is set out of limits for the monitor. Check your monitor documentation to determine the correct resolution and refresh rates for the monitor. Then reboot the PC, go into SAFE mode, then re-adjust the display resolution there. Once you reboot after that, the monitor should be fine.

My computer's screen resolution is too low


Hello to adjust your screen resolution, right click on the desktop and either click properties for Windows XP or screen resolution for Windows Vista/7. Then for XP click settings and you will see a slider bar where you can adjust your screen resolution. For windows 7, it will be on the screen that opens up, just slide the bar into the resolution you want.

Thanks for using FixYa!

Hi.. I have recently bought a dell 15R inspirion.. Hardware - Intel i5 -460M 2.53GHz (Turbo boost upto 2.8Ghz) 4GB DDR3 500GB HDD 1GB ATI -HD 550v Win 7 Home Basic Problem - The display quality...


First of all make sure you are not in the "Safe mode". To adjust your display setting to a better resolution, you can right click on the background, and a small screen will apear, then go down to personalization and click it. It will pop up a window and on the left side, there should be a "display" and you want to click this and switch to the display screen, and still on the left panel there is this " adjust resolution" click this and adjust your resolution to a higher resolution. Saying that, if your computer running kinda low, then it's probraly all that dell preinstalled programs. You might want to also check your system spec in the windows system information to see if you are getting the full specs. If you are, then it's gotta be the preinstalled programs. I have a i5 450m gateway laptop 4gb of ram, and brand new it lagged more then my i3 dell studio which wasn't preinstalled with bunch of crapwares.

Dell b130 laptop boots to very high resolution causing the image to be compressed to the left side of the screen


First of all, by the sounds of it, it is booting to a very low resolution. ;)
Assuming that you run Windows, right click your desktop and go into either preferences or display settings. In one of those tabs, you'll be able to adjust your screen resolution. Usually the maximum setting it gives you is what your monitor is designed for. If not, just play around with the settings until you get the right resolution. If you screw something up, it's not a big deal; just don't do anything for a bit and it'll revert to the previous setting.
I hope this helps!

He display through a projector is much reduced from the projector


The screen resolution on your data projector may not be able to display the screen resolution set by your laptop.
Adjust your laptop's screen resolution say 1024X768 first then adjust it up or down to see the effect.
You can do this from the Control Panel - Display - Settings. There is no need to reboot the laptop for the settings to take place.

Pop up auto adjust in prograss


I had the same problem with my HP LCD. I'll turn on the monitor and it will run auto adjust and set everything to the max making the screen very bright. What I did was remove the button panel board and put it back. Everything works fine since then.
