Re: start up problems

This looks like a monitor problem, as the refreshing rate is set to high. Please try boot your PC in safe mode and then change the refreshing rate for lower that the monitor currently has. To get to those setting you wll need right klick your mouse on emtpy space on the desktop -> choose the last tab-> press btutton "advanced". To start PC in safe mode power on / restart computer

  1. As soon as the BIOS has finished loading, begin tapping the F8 key on your keyboard. Continue to do so until 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.
  2. Using the arrow keys on the keyboard, scroll to and select the Safe mode menu item, and then press Enter.
This not necceserly need to be F8 key, depend on Operatin System verion and the PC itself it also can be DEL or CTRL key.

Vizio CA 27 does not start up

the screen is not seeing any info from the pc. Make sure the pc is putting out video from the port you are trying to use. If it IS, then the tv cannot adjust to the frequency range of the pc and is not producing an image.

Can't get anything on my monitor but 'out of frequency range' But I can't get anything on the monitor to be able to get into the computer to reset the frequency. Help

Restart the computer. As soon as the bios start screen displays, start hitting F8, about once a second. You will eventually get the windows start menu. Use "Last known good..." or VGA mode. Last known good should do it. If not, VGA mode will allow you to get into windows and change your resolution settings, then reboot and get back to work.

Keep getting "frequency out of range" meassage

Sounds like there is an issue with the video card settings versus your monitor.

Try the following:

1.) Press F8 on boot and select VGA mode then once into the OS reset the video card options

2.) Try another monitor

3.) If you have video card, swap it out. If you have onboard graphics put a card in

Cheers...please post your results.

I have a dell 2400. It periodically shuts down to the flashing light state when my cell phone rings. It's rare and NOT everytime my cell phone rings. But I've noticed that every shutdown has coincided...


A friend of mine reported this. It is possible the frequency does interfere with your computer. If the phone is close to your computer, move it way.
