    My solution on the 22" Westinghouse monitor's error message, "Out of Range". Before I followed your suggestions, I unplugged the monitor for several minutes from the power supply and the computer. The monitor's default values reset properly and I've got a healthy picture now. Thanks for your replies.

How can I fix an "Out of Range" display?


It means that your display card settings are too high for your monitor. Boot your system into safe mode (press F9 as it boots up) and set the display settings lower. Right mouse button click on an empty space on your desktop and go to properties. Then settings->advanced->Monitor and you should be able to adjust the vertical frequency down to 60hz or 72hz. If you get the out of range message on boot up then you will need to try out a different screen on your system, boot into Windows, change the settings and then plug in your original monitor.

I have this monitor hooked to my PC ATI 7500 graphics card with a DVI cable. When the PC initially boots up, the monitor display is blank - it does not display the boot-up messages until the MS Windows...


This is normal. Your monitor has a VGA hook in for regular definition. What it is doing, the monitor always by default looks for the VGA hook first. On my desktop it does the same thing until it finds a signal on the DVI.

In the middle of my screen a blue box is showing and in it this reads OUT OF RANGE H. FREQUENCY 68.7 KHz V. FREQUENCY 85.0Hz What does this mean and how can I fix it this was a gift...


That message appears when the Windoze display settings exceed the monitor capabilities. If you will boot into windoze safe mode (F8 at boot) and correct the display settings, the message should clear at the next boot. Afterwards you can right click on the desktop and access the display settings to make final adjustments.

In your case, the refresh rate (V Frequency) should not exceed 70 Hz

Out of range message


This is caused by a resolution and/or refresh frequency setting in your computer's display properties that exceeds the values supported by the monitor.
Find out the optimum (native) resolution of your monitor (in case of AMV 17V5 it will be 1280x1024 pixels), and supported refresh frequency (usually 60Hz for LCD monitors), and set your display properties to these values.

I have a Gem gl-190z2 monitor that displays over range after boot


Just lower the screen resolution

Boot into safe mode first by repeatedly pressing F8 and select safe mode
once booted click on an empty area of the screen and take it from there. 800x600 is a good starting point

Re-boot and adust as needed.

Your monitor was just telling you it was too much for it to handle thats all.

Intstalled starlogic moniter to PC and got error message


Hi,
the "Out of Range" message usually appears when the video card is putting out a video resolution or frequency that the monitor isn't able to handle. You should reboot your computer and BEFORE the Windows screen shows up, press the F8 button once every half-second. THis will bring up the boot menu for Windows. Select "Enable VGA Mode" and press enter. THis will load Windows in VGA mode where the screen resolution will be 800x600 @ 60Hz. Any modern monitor is able to use this. Once you log into Windows with the basic video settings, you can go into the Display properties within Windows and bump up your resolution and frequency as needed.

My ViewSonic computer monitor keeps displaying a Vga Not Support Message upon booting then the message Out Of Range comes up on a completely dark screen. Need Help


It sounds like the computer is trying to use a resolution that the monitor cannot handle. Boot into safe mode by pressing the f8 key during boot up and select safe mode. Once booted, right click on the desktop and select properties. In settings lower the resolution by moving the bar to the left and reboot.

I would move it all the way down, you can then move it up a step at a time once you are in normal mode again.

Hope this helps
