You could try going into safe mode and make sure the correct drivers are installed and if they are then you can then set the correct resolution.

I TRIED TO RESET THE RESOLUTION. THE SCREEN WENT BLANK AND THE MESSAGE ON THE SCREEN SAYS IMPUT SIGNAL OUT OF RANGE


Hello,
I believe the max resolution this LCD can support is 1440 x 900 / 75 Hz. If you set your display resolution higher then that, you will receive the input signal out of range error. Your LDC turns off to protect it self from the invalid settings. If you can not change it back once your PC boots to windows, you may have to do it in save mode by pressing F8 once you power on your PC and before the windows loading screen starts.
Regards, Chris

I changed some setting for the computer resolution and now my monitor just says no input signal..the hard drive turns on and then goes into sleep mode and says no input signal. How can i fix this problem?


Possible reason is that input signal goes out of range that probably a Screen refresh rate that the monitor cannot handle. Instead of bursting into flames, the monitor shuts itself
down as a protection feature. Look at the monitor manual if you got one.

Safe Mode should allow the monitor to work in the problem account.

Try this.

Boot in Safe Mode (see below)
Switch users to the problem account
Right click the desktop
Select Properties
Click the Settings tab
Click the Advanced button
Click the Monitor tab
Select: Hide modes that this monitor cannot display
Select a different Screen refresh rate
Click Apply twice and then Click OK

Or try this:-
power on the system and press and hold F5.
When a screen appers with some option, try to find a option something realted with VGA setting.
Click that option and let pc start normally.
It will surely work

Exactly the same problem on boot-up with Likom (Futura) HD19A mon


ok, if your computer is able to boot until you able to use it yet the screen is showing none yet working too, i suggest you change your data cable from the computer to the monitor. i once had a problem like that. it must have been damaged by high input of charge and burnt off though it did not show.

thanks,

Boot up computer. Nothing comes up on screen. Get a message:"information. No input signal." Everything is plugged in correctly.


  • check the cable on the monitor screen
  • if after removing the data cable from the computer and it has no vertical color screen then
  • try other data cable
  • try other monitor screen

My screen turns green and then turns off


you need to adjust the screen voltage. behind the front grille and inside cover. a small black box 6 adjusters protruding from it. only adjust the the color counterclockwise that matches the problem in this case it's the green so look for the knob with "G" marked by it. there are 2 with "g" marked by them the row across the top of the box are for focus don't adjust. back the knob off untill the raster is blank with your input set to an inactive input, the picture should be blank and black.
when it is you have the adjuster close to where it should be, now change the input to an active signal and turn the color off so that you wil have black and white picture. adjust that knob untill you do have a truely black and white picture not too green or red or blue. go back to inactive video input and check that there are no lines of any color on the screen. repeat if needed. always adjust these knobs slowly the set will be watching you ! if your autofocus won't work now you have the adjustment set too low. check this function before putting back together again. these adjustments can be real touchy so be patient

On Pwr up logo appears then LCD returns to stanby Black screen


I will assume the monitor is staying on during the boot process all the way until Windows loads.
If that is the case, then...
  • Start the computer
  • wait until the initial bios/logo screens for your motherboard go away.
  • Press F8 to get the Windows recovery boot menu
  • If you see the Windows Logo you would normally see then press rest and try again.
  • In the recovery screen, select SAFE MODE
  • Boot into Windows and uninstall your video card.
  • Reboot the computer the normal way through the start menu.
  • When your PC starts back up it should then reinstall the video card, and set itself automatically back to 60khz as default.
Let me know how you go =)

Input Signal Out Of Range


Some monitors have low resolution, that if it doesn't support that resolution then you'll expect an "input signal out of range" message on screen. try to boot on "safe mode" if it works then you have to lower your screen resolution at "display properties" if not then the monitor has a defective data cable. ;)
