Re: How do I do about resetting the bios to see if my...
Hey Hi Mary,
Well if your system has an EXPANSION GRAPHIC CARD then in order to find out if the GRAPHIC CARD has gone bad u actually need to remove it from the system then hook up the monitor in the INTEGRATED VIDEO PORT. If the monitor works well and good then its the GRAPHIC CARD which has gone bad.
Because until the GRAPHIC CARD is installed in the system the system by default keep ignoring the INTEGRATED GRAPHIC CARD it will not even detect whether the system has an INTEGRATED GRAPHIC CARD or not..

Most likely your On-board graphics card, or Addin Graphics Card is not working.
Firstly, make sure the power cable on the monitor is well inserted...
If you use on-board Graphics - Reset your Bios by following the step by step instructions in the OEM manual of your motherboard - Usually setting some jumpers to the On & Off positions.
If an OLD Add-On card - make sure it is in full contact of the slot (You can clean the goldish contacts of the card with a normal pencil eraser if you want to) and try again. If still not working, your Card may need replacing. If it is a new card, and you have installed it for the first time, reset your BIOS and set back to on-board graphics - and update your BIOS (Refer to your instruction manual - Known as "flashing" the BIOS), and try again.
Good Luck :-) Jedemeyer1

Try to uninstall/reinstall the video card and make sure that you're installing the software from the setup CD and also you can try updating the software of the video card if you still have the problem after uninstalling/reinstalling it..
Hi 13ambreuer "Signal out of Range" is a problem between the graphics card, monitor, motherboard or graphics card port. if you have to do troubleshooting on the monitor and display card, proved no problem to it. This means that the problem now is the motherboard and graphics card port. (But should remember, problems ram, power supply and processor also causes the same error) * Sometimes *) mean here you have to do the troubleshooting on all hardware on your computer
Even if you turn off the on board graphics, the computer usually will output video until after BIOS post. Simply plug the monitor back into the motherboard video card. If that doesnt work you can actually just reset the cmos by opening the case ( make sure its unplugged) and there is a spot on the lower left where a jumper is and you can remove that to clear the CMOS. There are many you tube videos on how to do this. By doing this you will reset the CMOS to factory.
If you have not made any changes to your system and the problem has surfaced apparently without cause, the graphics card is the most likely suspect.
However, when troubleshooting, go back to check any actions you may have initiated just prior to the appearance of the problem.
For example, if you have relocated or reconnected monitors (or cables were stretched) just prior to the problem, check the port on the graphics card for bent pins. If you just updated a driver, remove it. If you have experimented with display settings in Windows control panel or just replaced a graphics card, check Display Properties - Settings, particularly the screen refresh rate in advanced settings (reduce refresh rate).
Any of these issues can cause the symptoms you describe, in addition to failed graphics cards and faulty drivers.
When your computer turns on, press F2 or F12 or Del key to get into the BIOS. Then find the part in the menu where it sais something like GPU or graphics Bus, switch it to PCI instead of Onboard. All motherboards are different so this is a general approach to the menu in the BIOS but definataly check in the BIOS.
There are a few things that can cause no display on the monitor. That single beep means POST = Power On Self Test. Post has tested everything on you're board to be good. The cable between video card & monitor may be bad or not connected correctly (Swap out the cable as last resort). 2. You're monitor is defective, try swapping it with known working monitor. 3. You're video card is not functioning. Lastly, when you reset the system cmos/bios everything went back to default. This means you're bios is now using the onboard PCI video graphics. Remove you're radeon 9600 video card. Try booting the system. You should see display again. The only way to test you're radeon would be to boot to the bios & set bios to boot using the AGP radeon. You need to change Init Display First to AGP & not PCI. If you loose video than you know you're AGP card is bad. Reset the cmos/bios before adding another AGP card or you will not get display. This setting is on pg 3-5. Integrated Peripherals.
