Question about HP Vs17 17" LCD Flat Panel Monitor
My HP Vs17 17 in. Flat Panel LCD does not display anything when I start it up. Only the HP and Windows Logo appears beforer it goes blank. Then a message say "Input signal out of range change to __x___ __mhz" but how can I change settings when it won''t let me see anything on the screen? I've tried changing the settings in Safe Mode but it they won't change so what can I do????
I have been having the same problem with my hpvs17 monitor when i start to use my web browser on linux distros. Now, for the next few days i am going to try my system on a regular crt monitor. if the monitor does not crash, than i will have to say that the hpvs17 monitor has a defect.It seems that when i go online, while i am in the middle of searching something, the monitor just shuts off and i get "input signal out of range".

I have an HP 1730 LCD monitor on a Compaq Presario S5100 desktop PC running Windows XP, up to date on patches as of 2009 Feb 25. For no apparent reason, the "input signal out of range" error message started appearing when the machine switches from boot mode (which looks OK) to regular windows mode. (My configuration does not HAVE a "safe mode" boot, by the way, so the usual advice doesn't apply.) Was the fault in the monitor, or the computer?
Step 1: see whether the computer is actually booting or not. Result: Over the home LAN, I was still able to access the shared directory on the suspect machine. This is good.
Step 2: swap the LCD monitor for an old Compaq MV720 CRT monitor. Result: the monitor does not like the input signal (essentially, the out-of-range error by another name), so the video signal IS faulty.
Step 3: reboot the PC with the analog monitor still attached. Result: the system boots up just fine, so there's something wrong with the way the PC boots with the LCD.
Step 4: swap video cables (without rebooting). Result: the LCD displays the working desktop, so the LCD display is still good, but there's still something wrong with the handshake between the LCD and the PC during boot. But we still don't know whether the LCD monitor is failing to produce the right Plug-and-Play sequence, as it used to, or the PC is no longer correctly interpreting the PnP sequence, so it's mis-configuring the video signal for the monitor.
Step 5: Back everything up, like you always should have been. (Always the last step, after a computer failure. ;-) )

Why does it say input signal out of range when I'm on the right setting?
