Re: monitor out of range

What Hz is it giving you? If it is less that 60Hz, you need to go into the monitor setup and raise the frequency up to 60Hz minimum. If it is higher than 75Hz, lower it to 60Hz.

The monitor displays a "out of range error" after

You mean the refresh rate is 60 Hertzs not 60 million Hertz (too high rate can damage the monitor).
You are getting the message because the PC video resolution is too high for the monitor to display, you need to set it to the native resolution of the monitor.

Installed wed cam and monitor shut down with a promt saying "frequency out of range". Changed resolution settings still have a problem with monitor and this promt. Changed to another monitor and everything...

Connect the monitor that works.

In the "Advanced" settings for the video-card,
set the "refresh-rate" to 60 Hertz.

Connect the other monitor -- it _very-likely_ will support a 60 Hertz refresh-rate.

Soyo monitor: Out of Range

Out of range indicates that you have attempted to use a resolution the the monitor is incapable of handling.

Lower your resolution and try again until you can get it to do what you wish then try to do each monitors resolution individually.

The power supply is shot, sadly, and you'll need to replace it. It's inside the cover and you should be able to find one on eBay. I have one, which is doing the same thing. It's not the connection, drivers or updates. Not the Hertz (refresh rate) or Resolution either. Hertz too high will give an "Out of Sync/Range" (either/or) box in the middle. Same place you'd see "No Signal" if the cable was disconnected.

OSD problem

Should be as simple as holding the Menu button for several seconds. Give it a try. You should get the message OSD unlocked and then the menu button will function as expected.

Resolution notice keeps popping up every thirty seconds or so. very annoying. this happens only when using cd rom game diablo. wants me to change to 1280x1024, which my computer is set at now. otherwise...

When you load the splash screen of Diablo enter into settings. Make sure you have the game set to the screen resolution you want.
For the system. Open display properties. Click Settings, click Advanced, click Monitor. (Most games require 60 hertz) to run correctly. Change your monitor to 60 hertz. Than click the Adapter tab. Click list all modes. Move the slide bar to your normal screen res with 60 hertz. Click ok at every screen as you back out od display properties. That should stop your game from popping up.

Monitor out of range

Most commonly, this problem is caused by an incorrect refresh rate setting. LCD monitors typically DO NOT support refresh rates higher than 60hz - and this is no exception. Try running the game in "safe mode" if it has one. Adjusting the in-game video settings should solve the problem, just look for a screen refresh rate or any video-related setting with a number followed by "hz". Set it to 60, everything should be fine.

It could also be that at some point the game changes resolution (this frequently occurs if there is an in-game movie or cut-scene). In this case the resolution settings for the in-game movie might be at fault, check them if you can.

Range Warning

first, 68.5 khz -85hz means horizontal raster frequency of source signal is at 68.5 kilohertz and repeats vertically at 85 hertz. (hertz means "cycles per second). the sony monitor cannot "read" the signal being sent from the pc. change the screen resolution to a lower number like 75 or 70 hertz vertical.
