Your graphics card will not support that refresh rate @ 1680x1050. you may need to upgrade your graphics card.

Here is the best price/performance card for your machine. and will support upto 2048x1536 @ 85Hz

Hope this helps.

VGA modes are old VESA standard video modes that are supported as legacy modes on most graphics cards. In general, on modern graphics cards, they have variable refresh rates so as not to cause problems with monitors that can't handle the lower refresh rates frequently associated with VGA modes. Sometimes, graphics cards do not adjust the refresh rate for the monitor, and this can cause problems of minimum refresh rate being exceeded. The LCD monitor possibly has a very strict minimum refresh rate, and thus cannot handle the VGA mode on its standard refresh rate as sent by the graphics card.

Monitor displaying out of range message


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!

This usually happens when you select a resolution or a refresh rate that is beyond the monitor range. For example if your monitor supports a max. resolution of 1024x768 then if you give it a signal of 1600x1200 it will display out of range.

Solution of this problem is to reduce the resolution or refresh rate frequency.

Changing screen resolution in Windows XP: First right-click on the desktop and then left click on Properties from the menu that appears.

The display properties dialogue box will appear as shown in fig 1.1 below, click on the settings tab at the top right of the box.

The areas worth noting are:

Screen Resolution
This slide bar is what you use to change the resolution, the options you have will depend on your graphics card and monitor, but the standard options are 800x600, 1024x768 and 1152x864.

Normally the default (in XP) is set to 800x600 which means the display will be 800 pixels wide and 600 pixels high.

How to Change the Screen Refresh Rate of Your Monitor loadTOCNode(2, 'summary');
  1. Click Start, click Control Panel, click Appearance and Themes, and then click Display.

    Alternatively, right-click the desktop, and then click Properties.
  2. Click the Settings tab, and then click Advanced.
  3. Click the Monitor tab, and then click the screen refresh rate that you want to use.
NOTE:
  • The default refresh rate setting is 60 Hertz (HZ); however, your monitor may support a higher setting. Check your manufacturer's documentation for information about the settings that your monitor supports.
  • If you use a higher refresh rate, you can reduce the rate that your screen flickers; however, if you specify a refresh rate that is too high for your monitor, your screen may become unusable and your hardware may be damaged.
  • Changes to the refresh rate affect all users that log on to the computer.

Can you help me my computer says input signal out of range


This has to do with the refresh rate (hertz) of the monitor and whether the graphics card is capable of operating at that rate. So your graphics card is operating at a rate that is too high or too low for you monitor to receive. I've run into this when trying to use a giant monitor with an older graphics card. Are you doing that? Try a generic plug and play 17inch monitor and see if that works. Go into Control Panel, open Appearance and Themes, open Display, go to Settings Tab and click Advanced. You will see tabs for Adapter and Monitor. There you will find what is and is not supported as far as resolution and refresh rate.

Graphics card problem


Download and install the latest driver software for your video card to make sure that's up to date. Then make sure you've got the right monitor type specified and you should have the right choice of resolutions and refresh rates. If the particular monitor you have is not offered as a choice by your operating system, you can usually get specifications from the manufacturer's website. Then pick a generic monitor type that offers the highest refresh rate the monitor can handle.

Monitor 'drop out'


Ok, the problem with the monitor for programs is actually the Vista Aero. Found out that even though many programs are Vista compatible they do not run with Aero-used program compatibility wizard which reverted Aero to Windows Classic and all is well. Not sure if similar problem is affecting web pages though.

Have your tried reinstalling the video drivers? If you have exhausted any driver issues, it is most probably caused by the video card, try changing some color settings and profiles too including refresh rates, it might be a conflicting graphics driver...

Viewsonic VA712b 17 " flat screen monitor


Realheadache, Unusual problem, it could be the resolution and refresh rate setting your PCs video card is currently set at. I don?t know if this will fix your problem but its worth a try: - Now go to your PC with the old monitor connected, right click anywhere on the desktop. - Left click Properties from the box that appears. - When the Display Properties box appears click on the Settings tab. - Make note of the screen resolution. - Change the screen resolution to 1024 x 768. - Click on the Advanced button in the lower right hand corner. - In the next box that appears click on the Monitor tab. - In the Monitor settings section of this page record the value of the Screen refresh rate. Then change it to 60 Hertz. - Close this and the Display Properties box by click on the OK button. - Now try connecting your new monitor. Let us know if this helps and as always please don?t forget to rate this posting.
