Question about Computer Monitors
When playing a game the screen goes black and a massage says out of range: H: 255 KHz, V:239.9 Hz.
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.

Try to change your game config like screen resolution and monitor resolution and install driver for your monitor also. bye

Right after a new install of Microsoft Office 2010 and just after a required reboot, got a "Signal out of Range!" blue box with message.
Don't know if the two are connected but that is when it happened.
Fixed it by using another LCD monitor a 17" LiquidVideo A170E1 which also displayed "Signal out of Range!" blue box with message, once.
Also showed the video setting range, set to, H: 3KHz V: 174.8Hz.
Both of these setting are, you guessed it, "Signal out of Range!."
The working Range is, H: 22-82KHz V: 56-76 Hz Max 1280x1024 for this monitor, LIQUIDVIDEO A170E1.
After a restart everything went back to normal.
Normal being 1024x768 32-bit 75Hz or V: 75.1 Hz H: 60 KHz
I did not change any setting to make it work, I just hooked up another monitor while is was still displaying the "Signal out of Range!" blue box with message on the screen and restarted the computer. A Gateway DX4870 desktop tower.

Upgrade drivers, i could not use one of my games, then i got drivers for both video and monitor, works fine. the monitor driver says fp371 but still fixed so no problems!

Yes, it is a resolution problem, check if your monitor can support the minimum resolution specified for the game. Also, you might need to allocate more memory to your video. Some games require a 64/128 MB grafix card too.
