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.

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

Frequency out of range

Try to set the monitor refresh rate to Adapter Default despite of Optimal or lower rate of refresh. For this first download the manual of your monitor and check what is the highest refresh rate your monitor can suport. Then goto the display properties and set the adapter refresh rate to Adapter Default. In most cases such problem is solved. You did not mentioned the OS. This method is applicable in Windows only. (
