My monitor says out of range


You have set the resolution or refresh rate of your display adapter to a value which is too high than what is supported by your monitor.
In order to fix this, you have to do the following:
1. Reboot your computer & press F8 to boot into Safe Mode.
2. Once in Safe Mode, open Device Manager.
3. Remove the display adapter device driver form Device Manager.
4. Reboot your computer again. Windows will boot up normally & will detect the display adapter. It will prompt you for the device driver for the display adapter.
5. Use the CD that came with your display adapter to install the device driver. Once done, your problem is fixed.

The problem of my Acer TravelMate 3270 is no display in the LCD Monitor even the computer is power on & completely loading the OS. I tried to connect an external monitor thru the vga port but no...


Hi there,

Did you make any hardware or software changes in your computer after which this is happening?
Which is your operating system?
Do you see Black screen after os loads up? if yes then its a black screen error.

A black screen may occur if there is a problem with the video card drivers and Windows 7. To resolve this problem please follow these steps:

1. Restart the computer.
2. Press the F8 key before it enters Windows.
3. Select the Safe Mode option in the Advanced Boot Options menu and press Enter.

NOTE: If Safe Mode does not work please retry the first two steps and select the Enable low-resolution video (640x480) option instead. If this option is selected your desktop will be bigger than usual - this is by design.

4.
Once in your desktop, click on Start and select the Control Panel.
5. Select the Hardware and Sound option and then click on Device Manager under Devices and Printers.
6. Expand the Display adapters list - this should display the video card that is currently installed on your computer. Please note the make and model before proceeding.
7. Right click the video card under Display Adapters and select Disable.
8. Repeat this step if more than one video card is showing under Display Adapters.
9. Once all display adapters have been disabled restart the computer in normal mode.

At this point you should be able to get into your computer without a problem; however, your video card is disabled so you will need to download and install the latest drivers for it. If you had noted the make and model of card when you were in the device manager you can search for this on the internet and/or contact the hardware manufacturer for help. Once the drivers are installed correctly on the system you should be able to boot normally without any resolution problems.

Post back we will be happy to help you.

Hope this helps.

Cheers!!!

VGA hookup to my Toshiba Satellite


Set the TV input to PC (that's ViewSonic's term for the VGA port).

Setting the computer to output to the PC may depend on your OS (XP, Vista). Reboot the computer after connecting the monitor and see if new hardware is found. Reboot again if you have a flickering screen. In Vista, right clicking on the desktop brings up various video and desktop options. Choose Screen Resolution and look for the multiple monitors line. Click Apply and OK after setting your desired output. In the Screen Resolution window you should see two monitor boxes (labeled 1 and 2) if the computer sees the monitor.

If the second monitor is not showing up (no new hardware found), check your BIOS and device drivers to see if you need to enable or update the drivers for the VGA port. Check your manual for the BIOS (often it is click F1 or F2 before the OS loads; it's often tricky timing and I have to try repeatedly). Device manager will have a red x if the port is disabled; the exclamation point (yellow triangle) indicates driver issues.

I realize this is nearly a year after you posted your questions but I hope it will help the next person searching for answers on this TV.

Trying to connect Inspiron 6000 to TV



If there is no display on your TV, HDTV, or Projector, please make sure that all of your connections are set up properly and that you have enabled the display in the Catalyst Control Center. The connectors that you will be using would be Svideo for TVOUT, DVI-to-HDTV (Component video), VGA-to-HDTV (Component video) for HDTV, and DVI, VGA, or Svideo for the projector.
737-22474-1.jpg Here are the steps to properly setup and enable TV, HDTV, or Projector:
  • Turn off your PC and your TV, HDTV, or Projector.
  • Ensure that your card was installed correctly, as per the Getting Started Guide.
  • Determine if your TV, HDTV, or Projector has a S-Video (for TV), YPbPr for (HDTV), or VGA/DVI for Projector.
  • Looking at the back of your PC, locate the needed connector or the supplied adapter cable; attach one end of the cable to your graphics card and the other to your second display.
  • Turn on your second display then your PC.
If you are connecting an HDTV to your video card, please Click here for detailed instructions on how to set it up correctly.
Starting Windows with TV or Projector Display Enabled The TV screen may become scrambled during the initial Windows® logo display. This is only a temporary effect and your screen will be restored within a few seconds. During start up, your RADEON will go through a sequence of mode settings, during which your TV display will remain blank. This process takes only a few seconds and helps program the TV display.
  • To enable the second Display
  • Right-click anywhere on your desktop
  • Click Catalyst Control center
  • View
  • Advanced view
  • Display manager
  • Detect Displays
  • You should have the second display picture under “Attached displays currently disabled
  • Drag it to the box on top of it
  • Apply
  • OK
If for any reason the second display does not get detected, please do the following:
  • Open the CATALYST CONTROL CENTER
  • Go to Display options
  • Check “Force TV detection” *
  • Apply
  • OK
* Force TV: Allows you to force TV detection if the ATI driver does not automatically detect TV-out connected to the graphics accelerator.
Possible issues:
In case the users display does not natively support HDTV display timings in the EDID, you can add standard HDTV modes so that the usual HDTV resolutions (720p, 1080i, 1080p) are listed in the Display Manager resolutions. You can also create custom HDTV timings to solve any kind of over-scan options (for cases when the windows desktop appears to not fit on the HDTV screen, and the outside boarder is cut off).
For more information on connecting your second display to your Video card, including supported output device combinations, please refer to your user’s manual.

How fast will you get this question?


Hi,

Assuming no probs on the projector, PC and cables -
Try lowering down the screen display resolution of your PC before pressing the FN + F7. Once displayed on the projector, you can increase to desired/workable settings. (Right click on a clear space of your desktop, click on Properties, click on Settings tab, in Screen resolution, move slider towards the extreme left).

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things went or should you need further information.

Good luck and kind regards.
