this mornin when my dad started the comp. he was just about to check the news when the screen went blank and diplayed the message out of range. he mouse also went dead. i have just rid the antivirus 360 virus off this comp and another shoppers virus awswell. the comp has been running really slow so i uninstalled a few games and fread up the hardrives and defraged both of them. i have run multiple scan using Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and have found nothing new. if you could help that would be great i am using a radeon X1650 series graphics card with 512mb ram and the driver is version 188.8.131.5298
Re: flatscreen goes blank and displays the message
Out of range indicates that the refresh rate or resolution is set too high for the monitor to display. I would suggest re booting into safe mode by pressing F8 during boot, before windows begins to load. Select safe mode with networking if you can, and once in safe mode, uninstall the ati display driver from the control panel. Then go to ATI's site and download the latest driver for your card. Save that file to your desktop. Reboot normally, as Windows should load default vga drivers for your card. Once in Windows, install the latest driver you just downloaded. That should reset the resoultion to one that your monitor can display. Good luck:)

Goto device manager , uninstall the card. go into control panel and check that the driver is uninstalled from the programs list. Swich of the pc for a minute or two then reboot Windows updares does not download drivers for graphics cards so will not install or reinstall the driver that is causing the issue, 307? Users forget to uninstall from program manger in control panel which is why the card keeps reinstalling with the undesired driver.
Please let me know what happens

Removal of fan power, makes the GPU to get high heat, it a
reflow technique. Remember, not to touch the GPU portion (heat sink),
as it may be in higher temperature. Try this, it works most.
you need to boot to safemode and reset your resolution it sounds like someone has set the resolution higher than the monitor can support, just press F8 right after the post screen goes away when you turn it on, then select safe mode, once in safe mode go to your display settings and set the res and color depth to a low settings ie. 800x600 or 1024x768 then reboot and it should work
