Hi, It is just that at the initial stage your screen resolution was a tad too high for the capacity of the monitor. As long as you retain the working resolution you should have no problem. To lower or increase, right click on any clear area of your desktop, click on properties, settings tab, adjust the Screen resolution to your preference as long as it is within the capacity of your monitor. Adjust soon as your monitor says out of range, click on escape and go back one step. click on apply and ok and this should hold till you manually change it again. It's really of just the PC trying to give its best but the monitor was not up to it. Good luck and hope this works for you. Post back how things are or should you need further information. Kind regards.

"Out Of Range" is more than just resolution. It means your video adapter is set to a resolution/refresh rate setting that is outside the range of supported signals.

Go into your Video Adapter's settings, look at resolution then the refresh rate (Hertz), and compare to those supported by the monitor.

When I had a similar problem, I noticed that somehow, the refresh rate was set at 59HZ which is unsupported. After changing to 60HZ (which is supported) the problem went away.

I have amonitor 32 inch when i turn it on i see meany horizontal lines this lines colored how can i solve this proplem pls?

Hello When you get horizontal line, especially colored, it typically means there is a problem internally: either with the LCD inverter (backlight), LCD Circuit board (interprets incoming signal) or the Display panel itself. Sometimes shaking it around can clear up the issue slightly but for the most part it's time to get a new screen. If you have pictures I can verify this is the issue. Any other questions, feel free to ask.

How do i get it to stop powersaver at start up

its not the monitor.. it is your computer's power saver option. If you are using XP, start--->go into control panel----> power options and there will be options for different thing... find where it says turn off monitor after 15 min and make it to any time you want. Also same in vista and windows 7..
Good Luck

Turn the monitor on without turning computer on. Use the OSD (On Screen Display to lower the refresh frequencies. On the monitor look for a Setup button. The arrows allow you to scroll through the options. Do not forget to save settings.

After Windows has started and the setup screens show, my Kogi monitor says "out of range" and the screen goes black. How can I fix this?

Set the resolution lower.

It is telling you that the resolution you want is beyond its normal operating range.

just drop it to lets say 800 x 600
Then bump it up one resolution at a time until you get the message again, then drop it back one.

Running monitors above the acceptable range can drastically shorten their lifespan.

I can`t to install the driver

Though you do not specify WHY you cannot install the driver, probable reasons, among many, are:
1) You need administration rights before you can install software. If this is the case, call your employer's support centre, if applicable, or log onto the machine using the Admin log on. If you're the person who installed or used the machine from first use, you are the Admin. If this is the case, then this is NOT the reason.
2) Your install CD may be deffective (remember, you did not say why you cannot install; I'm guessing).
3) You may need to uninstall the existing driver before you install the new one. This is how you do it:
Assuming you're running Vista, click on an empty area of your desktop and right click with the mouse. From the ensuing menu, select and click Personalize. Next, select Display Settings and then Advanced... Next, go to Monitor->Driver tab. Click on either the Update Driver or Unistall. The first one will ask you for the location of the driver. Point the utility program to your installation CD and continue the installation.
If you chose Uninstall, then close all windows and running programs, and restart your machine by switching power off and turning it back on.
After Windows has started, repeat the installation steps from your CD. It should work, provided the disc is also Ok.
Good luck!

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.
