Re: out of frequency


Are you referring to a problem with a Compaq (242697-001) 8-port KVM Switch or on your display (projector?)?

If it is a display problem, start your PC in Safe Mode and go to your Display Properties. In the Settings tab, lower down your screen resolution and color quality. In the Advanced button, Monitor tab, lower down your Screen refresh rates.

Reboot. Do the same and increase settings slowly (by increments) till you get the "out of frequency" message again. Pressing escape would revert you back to the last setting that worked fine.

Hope this be of some help to you, otherwise pls post back with a more detailed description.

Good luck and kind regards.

When a computer first boots up the video card send a request to the monitor to find on what resolutions the monitor supports. If the video does not get a response the card will default to very low resolutions. The only way to avoid this problem is to boot your computers one at time and keep the KVM on the computer until it fully boots to a desktop. This will allow the KVM to pass the monitor information to the computer.

Computer problems after installing automatic switch

It really upsets me that a product I bought from you messed up my computer and now you want me to spend more money to tell me how to fix it. The instructions that came with the switch states "free technical support" Please follow this claim and tell me how to fix my computer.

KVM Monitor resolution out of frequency and will not display

Restart your system in a VGA mode (you will find this below Safe Mode, by pressing F8 before windows is loading) This way yours screen resolution will be at the very low frequency then you can change it back to the resolution you like. Eg. 800x600 or 1024x768. Remember to keep your Screen refresh rate lower like 75Mhz

My Keyboard only works on one PC but the monitor and mouse works on both?

Plug the key board and mouse directly into the computer that doesn't work, let it recognize the hardware and then reboot. After reboot, plug the keyboard and mouse back into the KVM and reboot again. That solved the problem for me. Most likely, the computer that doesn't work has never loaded the driver for that key board and does not recognize the input sent from the KVM.
