Question about Computer Monitors
Earlier, when I connected it to the running computer, the monitor gave the message ''out of frequency range.''
I shut the computer down using keyboard shortcuts while there was yet no image on the screen. As the computer shut down, the message ''It is now safe to turn your computer off'' appeared, the first image to show from the computer.
When I powered the computer back up, already connected to the monitor, monitor on, I saw the starting screens, and even my screen saver for a few seconds before it went black again.... When I turned it off and back on, the image would be there but then go away. The more times I did this, the shorter the time the image would remain. Eventually it wouldn't show any image, and again seemed to be dead.
Try booting into safe mode. press F8 while the computer is booting. see if everything stays normal. It should tell you that it booted into safe mode. Once there, change the resolution or the frequency of the display(also known as the refresh rate) by right clicking on the desktop and selecting properties. Once there, click the tab all the way to the right, it should give you color quality options and resolution options. At the bottom, there should be an advanced tab. Depending on our video card this menu can be different from others. Look in that new window for and option to change the refresh rate or the frequency. The value will be in xxx hertz. try setting it to 60 hertz.
