Signal Out of Range message

This message happens even at startup. I've tried changing the resolution and frequency settings and changed my video settings in bios to 128mb. I also tried hooking it up to another desktop (HP) and that computer beeps like crazy at startup. I haven't tried out a new cable yet, but I did ohm the pins out. Not sure what else to try unless I need a new video card. I'm running an AMD 900mhz processor with 1gb ram. Windows XP Home edition. Currently using a CRT monitor that works fine. Thanks

SOURCE: ''out of frequency range'' on crt monitor

Go into your "Device Manager" in Windows and find out if your HDTV monitor is still installed. Delete the settings under the monitor tab and reboot the computer. With any luck the reboot will cause Windows to re-detect your current monitor and install the proper settings. A similar process may need to be followed with your video card driver as well. CAUTION: Make sure you have a disk or some means of installing a copy of your video card driver before you delete out the currently installed one.

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: LCD Monitor (Model Number M17FBA) Signal Out of Range

Start the computer in SAFE mode. F8 before Windows starts. Once in SAFE mode change the screen resolution to 600 X 480. Do this by right clicking anywhere on the desktop. Once done then reboot into normal mode.

SOURCE: frequency out of range

the monitors resolution range is only to 1280X740 or 780
and your video card may also need an upgrade.
The game may require a higher resolution that is not compatible with the the devices mentioned.

Monitor displays /out of range 15.7hz/ 60hz

This usually happens when the frequency range of the monitor can not handle the refresh rate provided by the system. Did you tried to change the resolution or the refresh rate frequency of the system ? If yes then you have to revert the change. In case you are unable to make the change from with in the OS as message pops-up at the start-up i suggest attach an other screen and choose a lower resolution afterwards you can attach the same screen and hopefully the issue will be resolved.

HPL1506 The input signal from pc display foe few seconds and goes off error recommended setting - 1024 x 768 - 60Hz

It can be that your PC video resolution is set higher than 1024 x 768 @60Hz for the monitor to display correctly.

Try this per HP:
HP Business Monitors - What Do I Need to Do When the Message Sync out of Range Displays on the Monitor? ISSUE: What do I need to do when the message Sync out of Range displays on the monitor? When the video card signal exceeds the frequency allowed for the monitor, the following error message may occur: Sync out of Range SOLUTION: To avoid the message, lower the resolution or vertical frequency of the video card. Reboot the system and use the VGA mode to force the video card driver to lower its resolution. Follow these steps.
  1. Shut down and restart the system. For consumer systems such as HP Pavilion desktop PCs, push the Power button once. For commercial systems such as HP business desktop PCs, hold down the Power button for five seconds.
  2. Immediately after seeing the HP/Compaq logo screen, press F8 at system startup to initiate the bootup menu.
  3. Scroll down to highlight Enable VGA Mode , and press ENTER .
  4. After Microsoft Windows completes its bootup process, access the Display Properties and select a desired resolution, which is compatible to the connected monitor.

Screen says "OUT OF RANGE H:27.8K V: 62.0

That's the monitor telling you it's getting a signal it can't handle. The H and V values are the horizontal and vertical frequencies that control the display. They change depending on your computer's video card settings. The monitor can be damaged if run at frequencies outside its safe range, and it displays the message you're seeing to protect itself.

Start your computer. When the manufacturer's splash screen (logo screen) comes on, press the F8 several times. This will get you to a startup options menu. Select "Start in VGA mode" from the list. Windows will start up then with settings every monitor can handle, and you'll be able to see again.

You might have a game or other graphics application that changes video settings to something the monitor can't handle. If this is the case, and those settings are required, you'll need to invest in a monitor with a greater settings range.

I was adjusting picture on monitor and now picture completely messed up

  • Signal out of Range.
  • Out Of Scan Range
  • Horizontal frequency is out of range.
  • Cannot Display This Video Mode Out of Sync

This issue may occur if the signal from the video adapter exceeds the scan range of the monitor. The video adapter setting for updating the screen (the refresh rate) is incompatible with the monitor.
you should reinstall your video drivers in safe mode.

To restart in safe mode repeatedly press the F8 key during the computer startup. This will bring a menu where you'll be able to choose safe mode.

Monitor out of range

Most commonly, this problem is caused by an incorrect refresh rate setting. LCD monitors typically DO NOT support refresh rates higher than 60hz - and this is no exception. Try running the game in "safe mode" if it has one. Adjusting the in-game video settings should solve the problem, just look for a screen refresh rate or any video-related setting with a number followed by "hz". Set it to 60, everything should be fine.

It could also be that at some point the game changes resolution (this frequently occurs if there is an in-game movie or cut-scene). In this case the resolution settings for the in-game movie might be at fault, check them if you can.

Monitor is working out of scan range

It probabily happens after you change the settings of display in control panel (windows), if so restart the machine and press function key <F8> after memory test and you shoud get to the startup menu, choose VGA mode and undo the changes in display that you have made.
