    its a princeton VL1919 LCD connected with a vga cable to my desktop

  • reinerof94 May 21, 2009

    Hi benwabnick, I just did that and it worked. However, I've disconnected the vga cable from the monitor before and it worked as well for a little while. What should that solution do?

    thanx

    frankzjm it did this with the onboard vga addapter that's why I bought a video card which can only be a agp but it does the same still

  • reinerof94 May 21, 2009

    benwabnick I did that already for the geforce 7300 gt

    do u think the monitor needs its own driver update maybe?

  • reinerof94 May 21, 2009

    MrDallasIT thanx MrDallasIT...I'll try that

  • reinerof94 May 21, 2009

    I don't think its a video driver issue since it did the same thing without a video card before...it may need a monitor driver which is probably hard to find for the princeton brand...

  • reinerof94 May 21, 2009

    thanx guys for all the support...by just disconnecting then reconnecting vga cord the monitor is working now...maybe the vga cord was kinda lose, who knows...the Herz is and always was at 60Hz...again, thanx to all of u for the support

    Turn off the computer and the monitor. Then turn on the monitor and then after 3 seconds, turn on the computer and see if it boot up into windows properly.

    Summary those solutions tel you know why you met this problem:

    1) host and device has initial sequence, that should be:

    turn on sequence: device (monitor) turn on --> host( your PC) turn on, turn off sequence: device turn off --> host turn off,

    if any hardware operating aganst this sequence should be cause some initial problem, like yours

    2) your PC has two VGA output (onboard and AGP card) there are different resolutions and might be different refresh frequency, also the monitor has recognize and memory first connected resolution and refresh Frequency setting from PC VGA port. if you change your VGA port but do not according power on/off sequence, the monitor still memory previous resolution or refresh freqency setting. so that the error pop message shold be occured. but it is never cause from the VGA cable it self.

    this is a computer theory, just give you a sense.

What I had you do was to make sure your computer can recognize your monitor properly. The only other thing you may want to do is update your video drivers.

Sounds like you you have a video driver issues. Disconnect your monitor while your PC is still on, and then reconnect it, and perform a reboot...

Screen says "OUT OF RANGE H:27.8K V: 62.0


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.

Frequency out of range 11khz/ 119khz message


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.

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.

Stars then says frequency out of range


start your computer in safe mode. Here's how to do it.

  • If the computer is running, shut down Windows, and then turn off the power
  • Wait 30 seconds, and then turn the computer on.
  • Start 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.
  • Ensure that the Safe mode option is selected.
  • Press 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.

"out of frequency range" message nothing works


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

Monitor Problem


That is because your computer is trying to display a picture at a higher resolution than the monitor can handle

EG. if your monitor was only capable of lets say 800 x 600 and you decided to try force it to display 1680 x 1260 your monitor would do one of three things

try but die doing so
switch itself to sleep or standby mode
scream at you that its "OUT OF RANGE"

The H & V numbers are horizontal and vertical frequencies sometimes it is possible to use the monitors own OSD to change these but please check in the monitor manual before you do so.

Your best bet is to start your computer in safe mode and re-set the resolution to something a little more in the range of the monitor and then try re-boot.

Monitor displays Msg. frequency out of range, screen is black


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.
