What why how when


I actually had to track part of your posting to discover what you were talking about. The software you were attempting to use appears to have tried to change your screen resolution to something beyond the range of settings of your monitor. You accessed online chat help and were informed to adjust your monitor resolution to different settings. Subsequently, you have found yourself staring at a white screen and unable to see dialogue boxes. The software you appear to have been trying to use was Yahoo Messenger and Paltalk.

It would be nice to know what the original monitor settings were. In fact, you should always post the monitor brand and model number with questions such as this. It would also be nice to know what operating system you were using.

Your monitor may have an auto button (short for auto configuration). Pressing that might restore the default settings. If you can take a look at the monitor's manual, usually accessable by going to the brand site and searching for the model number, you might find relevant instructions regarding any such button.

If you can't fix the monitor configuration via the buttons on the monitor, you may have to resort to a system restore to a date prior to the original error message of "out of range" appearing. That may remove any problematic software that you installed that yielded the original problem. Write down the display settings (the resolution) before trying run anything that might yield an out of range message again. I can't say at this point if you need to go into "safe mode" on boot or not. There is a wee possibility that just going into safe mode and then rebooting might yield you a readable screen. You would then have to change the resolution of one you are comfortable with.

When I leave my computer for more than 5 minutes, the monitor turns black and I am unable to access my data. I have to use the power button to shut down and start all over again.


Just change the power settings to never turn your monitor off or never put your pc to sleep when idle.

For Windows 7:

Click on Start.

Go to Control Panel.

Go to Power Options.

Click on Change Plan Settings.

Make sure both Turn off the display and Put the computer to sleep is set to never.

Click on Save Changes.

Restart your pc.


The steps should be similar for Windows Vista and Windows XP.

I have a problem with my computer emachines j4501 desktop pc windows vista home premium..after the windows logo the monitor turn blank...but the cpu is still on.... what will i do...


If you can see the windows logo screen both your computer and monitor is working, possible problem could be that the display settings are set to high that your monitor is unable to handle it. Restart computer and keep tapping F8 key. This will take you to the advanced options menu In the list of options here choose enable low resolution mode and hit enter (you can only use your keyboard to choose - use the up / down arrow key) once you enter windows low res mode change it to 800 X 600 and restart the computer Once you are in the right mode now change the display settings accordingly.

How do i switch the Hz setting on the monitor


Usually, if there is a selector switch to match electrical requirements of a monitor or computer to that which may be available in the home, it is for voltage or voltage AND frequency. Seldom is there are selector for frequency only (I've yet to see one anyway).

The selector switch it typically found near where the AC mains power cord enters the enclosure. This can be on the monitor itself - or in the case of a monitor that uses a low voltage cable and connector connected to a power adapter, it would be located on the power adapter instead. Sometimes, these devices automatically detect and switch to match the power being supplied to it. The device should clearly indicate that it will work a wide range of voltages - do not assume it will if it does not specifically indicate that it will.

The selector above is set to 230 volts.

Set the selector switch BEFORE connecting to the power outlet. Most times, the selector switch has the voltage indicated on the slide. The switch will allow the user to choose 110-120 or 220-240 volts. The 110/120 selection is likely to be the 60 Hz variety and the 220/240 selection is likely to be 50 Hz.

If you are unable to locate such a switch, the device is not intended to be changed by the user - and there is likely no "easy way" for the user to change it.

Please rate this reply - good luck!

Most monitors have an auto button try that first. If not there will be a menu button which brings up the on screen display + and - moves the selector and there is normally an enter button to the select which item you want to change then use the + and - to adjust.

I turned on my computer two days ago and the screen was so skewed on the horizontal that I was unable to view the clock on the tool bar and the start program button at the same time. I have tried to...


Most likely the refresh rate in your display settings is set to high
lust right click on an empty spot on your desktop and click "properties" from the drop down menu or go to control panel / display and once you are in the display settings window click the "settings" tab on top then click "advanced" then "monitor" and make sure it is set to "60hz" (some monitors go higher but 60 is safe for just about all of them then click apply and see if the problem goes away

If it is already set to "60hz" then there might be a problem with your monitor itself
or it could be a monitor setting like "trapezoid" setting but not many monitors have this setting and it would be rare for it to get accidentally changed but just in case you could always try to go into the monitor settings menu and look for "reset" or "restore" function and if your able to reset it and it still has the same problem then it is probably your monitor is giving out and time to replace it

NOTE: the above solution is based on the assumption that you are using Windows XP with a CRT type monitor (not flat panel or LCD)
