Make sure you have the installation discs for your ATI card. While turning on your computer, repeatedly press the "F8" key. Eventually a menu should pop up giving you a number of choices. Choose Safe Mode. It will then reboot, and you will see a lot of different information. Don't worry that is normal. You may also get a Grey box that will ask if you really want to go to Safe Mode. Say yes. You will need to know what the Administrator password is for your computer. Once you have logged in, go to your Control Panel, and choose System. A window will open up with a number of tabs. Choose the hardware tab. Then choose Device Manager. A window will open. There will be a list of items with "+" beside each. Go to Display Adapters. Right click on each and every item there and Unistall them all. If after you choose each one you get a request for a reboot choose "No". Once they have all been unistalled, then let the computer reboot. It should boot normally now. Your computer will be working as a very basic display item. Once the bootup is finished, place your installation disc in your drive and install your drivers. This should solve the problem. If your computer will not show anything when you try your initial bootup to go to Safe Mode then you have a more serious problem. You will have to take your computer to one of your local repair shops and have them take a look at it.

    Actually you shouldn't have to hook up your other monitor. All of the monitors and graphic cards available are capable of working as plain vga equipment. If it is easier for you to do so you can hook up your other monitor to do the uninstall and reinstall. If, when you connect your original monitor back up you still have issues, as I stated you will have to have your computer looked at by your local shop.

You need to use the other monitor because the display resolution is out of range already. You need to reset again the display properties.

If you have Vista OS, it could be a problem after installing ATI's Catalyst Software Suite. If you recently installed it, try uninstalling it or rolling it back to an older version.

Monitor displays Msg. frequency out of range, screen is black


Start your computer and press the F8 when the manufacturer's logo screen is showing. This will bring you to the Windows startup menu. Pick "start in VGA mode" and windows will start up with video settings you monitor can handle. Then you can change your video settings so Windows will start normally with your monitor.

Flatscreen goes blank and displays the message


Out of range indicates that the refresh rate or resolution is set too high for the monitor to display. I would suggest re booting into safe mode by pressing F8 during boot, before windows begins to load. Select safe mode with networking if you can, and once in safe mode, uninstall the ati display driver from the control panel. Then go to ATI's site and download the latest driver for your card. Save that file to your desktop. Reboot normally, as Windows should load default vga drivers for your card. Once in Windows, install the latest driver you just downloaded. That should reset the resoultion to one that your monitor can display. Good luck:)

Remove your card. Clean the AGP slot & the video card. Reinstall the card. Still having trouble. Download the latest driver, below: Befor you install the latest driver package. Update windows. You will need .Netframwork ver. 2.0. Uninstall your current driver through Control Panel, ADD/Remove programs.
