Re: Monitor stuck in black

Reboot your computer in safe mode, and then see if it will come up to allow you to change the resolution back. It sounds like you need to check that monitor model to see if it is compatible with this game. you may need a different one. To start in safe mode, on startup, you should see (before Windows starts loading) eithe to press F9 or F11 for startup options, then choose safe mode. Log in, change the res (right click desktop, properties, settings). reboot to normal startup and see if it is ok.

I purchased a Dell ST2320L monitor. When I am in Windows, there are black bars on the top and bottom, as well as the sides. When I am gaming, however it is full screen. How do I adjust the monitor in...

thats really odd that windows 7 doesnt give you full screen but the game does? change your resolution settings around to see if that helps altho i doubt it. check menu settings on your monitor and see if you can change its aspect ratio

OUT OF RANGE: this words appear on my monitor, and it does not change. the monitor is black always.

The resolution your pc is set for is not compatible with the monitor.
To fix this, you need to start the pc in VGA mode. (640 x 480 lines) Start the computer and begin tapping the F8 key about once a second till you see a text screen with options displayed.
If you recieve a stuck key error, clear it (read the message) and continue to tap F8.

Choose the option to boot in VGA mode. When pc starts everything will look very big, like you're zoomed in.
Now you can change the screen resolution. Right click on background and choose properties, or display options, (depends on your operating system) find the option for resolution and change it to 800 x 600. (The screen will not change then and ther) Apply or OK the screen then restart the pc normally. Now you should be able to see more of the screen.
Go back to the resolution settings, and adjust it to your likeing and the limit of the monitor. Now it will apply immediatly, - click the save option that pops up with the change to lock in. If screen becomes unreadable, just wait 15 seconds and it will change back.

Acer al1716 monitor input not supported

You get the message because the game try to run at the PC video resolution that you monitor cannot display/support. You need to run your game at native resolution of the monitor.

My screen resolution is stuck at 640 X 480 and it can't be moved in the display area. Any suggestions?

The resolution of teh screen is controlled by the computer, not the monitor.

Find your display settings in whatever operating system you are using. You will be able to change the resolution there. Easiest way would be to do a Google search for "change resolution in XXXXX" where XXXXX is your operating system. (i.e., Windows XP, Windows 7, Mandrake, etc.)

HP W1907 Monitor goes black after resolution change

This is normal, but it should only take less than a minute for your computer to readjust, make sure all your graphic card drivers are updated, for that may be a factor.

Contact me if you need more detailed explaining.

You need to enter a lower resolution. The monitor you are on is incapable of using a resolution that high. If you cannot get back on you need to start in safemode. Then change the resolution to a lower one that your monitor can handle.
