Trying to connect dell desktop to my Samsung DLP HL-R5064W tv through vga cable to watch movies. Toggle source button on remote to pc, but receive an out of range message. please help


Hi,

"Out of range" message indicates that the output from your computer to display it from your Samsung HLR5064W DLP TV is too large. You need to adjust the screen resolution settings for you TV. I have attached images of display settings dialog boxes from different versions of Windows.

You may open the display settings of your computer by clicking on START > CONTROL PANEL > DISPLAY. While your TV is connected, click on IDENTIFY button. You will notice that numbers 1 and 2 will appear briefly on your screens consecutively. As the dialog box shows 2 monitors with numbers 1 and 2, click on the monitor with "2" on it. Then, adjust resolution to 1280 x 720 as this is the highest resolution your TV can handle. You may adjust the TV (monitor #2) to be IDENTICAL or to EXTEND the display of your computer. You can also assign it as the main monitor but not recommended. Click OK then try to toggle your computer's display. You should be able to see a display from your TV this time.


I hope this works for you. Kindly reply for further assistance. Good Luck!

Thanks for using Fixya!

Hi I get a "signal out of range" message until windows xp starts. This means I can't get into safe mode or see start up messages. Any ideas please?


You see "Signal Out of Range" does not mean you cannot go to Safe mode or see startup messages. It shows up when you dont have a display. The refresh rate of your monitor is a little slow. So when you wana go to safe mode, press the Power button and start pressing F8 option and you will get the safe mode option and you will see startup messages when you will get one. Your computer is perfect. :)

All the best.

Shrey
