HP Business Monitors - What Do I Need to Do When the Message Sync out of Range Displays on the Monitor?
What do I need to do when the message Sync out of Range displays on the monitor?
When the video card signal exceeds the frequency allowed for the monitor, the following error message may occur:
Sync out of RangeSOLUTION:
To avoid the message, lower the resolution or vertical frequency of the video card.
Reboot the system and use the VGA mode to force the video card driver to lower its resolution. Follow these steps.
Shut down and restart the system.
For consumer systems such as HP Pavilion desktop PCs, push the Power button once.
For commercial systems such as HP business desktop PCs, hold down the Power button for five seconds.
Immediately after seeing the HP/Compaq logo screen, press F8 at system startup to initiate the bootup menu.
Scroll down to highlight Enable VGA Mode , and press ENTER .
After Microsoft Windows completes its bootup process, access the Display Properties and select a desired resolution, which is compatible to the connected monitor.
That's the monitor telling you it's getting a signal it can't handle. The H and V values are the horizontal and vertical frequencies that control the display. They change depending on your computer's video card settings. The monitor can be damaged if run at frequencies outside its safe range, and it displays the message you're seeing to protect itself.
Start your computer. When the manufacturer's splash screen (logo screen) comes on, press the F8 several times. This will get you to a startup options menu. Select "Start in VGA mode" from the list. Windows will start up then with settings every monitor can handle, and you'll be able to see again.
You might have a game or other graphics application that changes video settings to something the monitor can't handle. If this is the case, and those settings are required, you'll need to invest in a monitor with a greater settings range.
The PC is sending out the resolution that is too high for the monitor to handle, you need to set the resolution of the PC to be the native resolution of the monitor and set the refesh rate to be at 60Hz.
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.
start your computer in safe mode. Here's how to do it.
computer is running, shut down Windows, and then turn off the power
seconds, and then turn the computer on.
tapping the F8 key. The Windows Advanced Options Menu appears. If you
begin tapping the F8 key too soon, some computers display a "keyboard
error" message. To resolve this, restart the computer and try again.
that the Safe mode option is selected.
Enter. The computer then begins to start in Safe mode.
once the computer is in safe mode, click on start > run and type desk.cpl. go to settings and then screen resolution. drag the slider to the left for the lowest setting. then press apply then ok. and restart your PC.
Try booting to the ENABLE VGA mode off the F8 menu
if you can get to the desktop and then you can go to display properties and see if you can reset the resolution to normal. If no go, try updating the video driver
Start your computer and press the F8 when the manufacturer's logo screen is showing. This will bring you to the Windows startup menu. Pick "start in VGA mode" and windows will start up with video settings you monitor can handle. Then you can change your video settings so Windows will start normally with your monitor.
