Re: over frequency

You need to put in on a monitor that is bigger than the one you are trying and lower the resolution in the desktop properties. Then you can plug it back in your monitor and it should boot.

Fixing 'Out of range', 'Format not supported' message

When the video card signal exceeds the frequency allowed for the monitor, the following error message may occur:
Sync out of Range, Out of range, Format not supported
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. Reboot

My hp monitor S5500 when boot on it desplay out of frequency range and set resolution lower or see monitor users guide. What can i do to clear this information.

It means that the resolution set in the pc is higher than what your monitor can handle. Boot in Safe Mode, go to Control Panel > Display and in the Settings put a lower resolution - 800x600.

Sir i an having a intex crt monitir model 151. when i switch on the system booting is fine when windows open ther is no raster only a messege (high frequency) is comming.when i connect cpu into another...

That is because your screen resolution in very high..means out of frequency of the monitor. Restart your pc and press F8 to get safe mode options.once you get safe mode window select Enable VGA mode using up or down arrow keys and press enter. Now you will get your desktop.


Now right click on an empty space in desktop and go to properties and go to settings tab. In screen resolution tab change the resolution to 1024 by 768. Then press Apply and OK. Now you can restart and see your computer works fine.

Desktop monitor shows lines when i put it on. These line prevent me from seeing the display well. What do i do?

This is normally an indication that this specific monitor cannot synchronize properly: the cause is the requested resolution is too high or the frequency specified is too high. In windows, specify a lower display resolution for your display adapter such as 800 X 600 and gradually change it to a higher resolution until the dsiplay becomes unacceptable to use. Hope it helps! Let me know how you go.

Frequency out of range on monitor and blacks out but pc still running

You've selected a screen resolution that is too high for your monitor to display. You'll want to restart and run windows in safe mode with minimal drivers installed and change the settings back to a tolerable level.

Never force a monitor into a mode that it can't display. Although the OS can protect it, if it doesn't, you can destroy your monitor.

Select 'only show modes this monitor can display' in the properties of your monitor inside display properties to ensure that this doesn't happen again.

I have a problem with FPD1975W-UK TFT LCD Monitor gateway, out of frequency on the startup of computer, dark screen.

You set your computer resulation to do things to the monitor that it can't do. try to boot up in " Safe mode " goto >control panel>DISPLAY>SETTINGS and change resulsation. You may also "flutzz" with a software program that changes the frequence of the monitor.Find that program and lower the frequence.

I have a vusys monitor and for some reason when i plug it in to my computer it displays a message "out of range" and i recieve no picture any solutionfor this please?

1.) The resolution/frequency your computer is currently running at is a higher resolution then the monitor can handle. Use a different monitor, if it works then lower resolution and replace with the vusys.

2.) You have physical failure. Your video card, cable, or monitor is bad. (Or you don't have it plugged into the right card). Try a different monitor if it works then and you did step one, then you probably have a bad cable or monitor.
