I have set up my tv as a monitor for my desktop. Everything works fine but there is a little blue and white rectangle moving up and down and left to right on the screen that displays "Attention, Out of Range". How do I get rid of that. It is very annoying.

Re: Out of Range
The refresh rate of your computers graphics card is set either too high, or too low. right click on the desktop, select properties, go to the settings tab, and click advanced. then go to the Monito tab, and play around with the different refresh rates, until the picture will show up. This is usually, around 60 Hz or less.

Right click on the back ground of the computer desktop. If windows XP click properties, if vista click personalise. Now look for settings and move the resolution slider to 1024 X 768. This is the native resolution for this monitor.
If you still have the HZ error, click on advance look for the monitor tab, and make sure it is set to 60Hz
Quite the opposite -- your new monitor can't handle the screen settings that you're running on the old monitor.
Hook up the old monitor and start up the computer so you're looking at a Windows desktop. If you have windows open, close them or minimize them down to the taskbar so you can see the desktop/background image.
Right-click on the background image and select "Properties" to bring up the Display Properties dialog.
There are tabs across the top of this dialog -- select the one named "Settings"
In the bottom half of the Settings tab, there's a control named "Screen Resolution" with a slider to move between "less" and "more"
Move this slider to 1280x1024 or lower. If you're already at a resolution smaller than 1280x1024, then set it to 800x600 and we'll troubleshoot from there.
Hit "OK" to accept the new settings. Windows will ask if the new settings are OK -- click on "yes"
Now unplug your old monitor and plug in the Benq.
If you are happy with this screen resolution, then you're done!
If you're looking at 800x600 and want to see more, then repeat this process -- go to the Display Properties -> Settings dialog and try a bigger resolution. Hit "Apply" instead of "OK" to try a new setting.
If the screen says "OUT OF RANGE" for a setting, just wait for 15 seconds, and windows will revert to the old (working) settings.
Let me know how this works! If it's helpful, click the little thumbs-up. If it's not, ask questions and I'll try to explain in more detail
Video Card has a resolution setting higher than the monitor supports. The below works with XP, may work for Vista as well
Start the PC
Start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see a menu
Choose Safe Mode (make sure not to pick safe mode command prompt)
Once you see the desktop, right click on an empty area on the desktop, then choose properties
Find the resolution property in this program and bring it down. 1024 x 768 should be ok
Sounds like the PC has too high a screen resolution set for the TV to handle Re-connect PC to PC monitor , change display resolution to 800 x 600 (right click desktop, properties, settings, slider marked "screen resolution" to leftmost side, save settings. connect PC to TV, TV should be able to display PC data now. Go through same procedure with PC connected to TV, move slider to 1024 x 768 posn. (depends on TV model as to what it can cope with) - *apply* this setting & see if TV is able to display at this resolution. If it is, desktop will appear - if not, you'll get the warning box generated by the TV...don't worry, in 15 secs, the PC will revert to the old (working) setting.
There are three size settings you can choose from, Normal, Wide and
Zoom. Try changing it using the 'Size' button on the remote or by going
into the On Screen Display (OSD) settings. If you don't have a manual
you can get one here. Hope this helps.
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.
