Dell LCD Monitor

Trying to install a Dell monitor with my existing Compaq pc. I can get it to power up, but right before my desktop displays the screen goes blank then I get an "Out of Range" error. Can you help?

    I have not changed my monitor or settings with the x2 gen 19". The out of range message came up and my screen is black. Now I can't access my computer because I do not have another monitor. Is this just a matter of changing the resolution of the monitor

Maybe your new monitor cant handle the resolution settings your old monitor was using, try installing your old monitor, or one you know can use the setting you have defaulted, then lower the resolution, and then try the new one again, or boot the new one in safe mode, hope this helps

Viewsonic VE175b Monitor Powers Up Doesn't Display Windows OS

Hi; I had the same problem. I know that sometimes devices require you to perform some type of '10-30 second' "hold" of one or some of its buttons in order to 'reset' the device, so to speak. So, having said that, try this:

1) Turn your monitor off (no green light) but leave it plugged in.
2) Leave it off for about 10 seconds.
3) Hold the [2] button on your monitor (the one to the immediate LEFT of your monitor's POWER button).
4) While holding the [2] button, now press and HOLD your POWER button.
5) Wait for your image to appear and STAY onscreen for about 5 seconds, then release both buttons.
6) Your monitor should retain its onscreen image.

Hope this helps! Good Day to all!
