NO PC stated nor OS is it windows what or linux what or O/S2?
10meter . is way too long. sorry. never do that ....
10m means that. why say 10m?
lead = cable. VGA cable. it is.
VGA will not run 10meters ever, and look ok, (i do know how)

out of range means the PC is using ******* resolutions settings
on this old monitor. see list of legal resolutions below.

the answer is simple.. (NOT REALLY WITH NO PC OR OS STATED)
in your unstated PC and OS (windows)
we do what, (im blind cant see what you own)
if HP PC is get the correct driver from my PC, (GPU/VGA)
then it works.
if this pc is over 10 years old (last year made not first)
then there is no HP support.
if running XP or Vista, then Plug in play is not going to work on the dead. (MS shut this down)
so i run my scan program (pci dev maker scanner)
omg i see the video chip now, and its a XXXX
(geforce 123)
i got to nVidia and get it and it loads and works (ask how)
then in the nvidia driver i set the default resolution to
any of the BOLD max resolution's.
learn to that using a new PC using and old model
the New PC with NEW OS does not recognize this old model
its too old. now. so we must force it, in WINDOWs.
you must force your unstated video chop to the below resolutions
ranges. pick one and set it. there.
if running XP or Vista ,both are dead do PNP plug and play is dead, now. in most cases F8 safe boot , set it to say
1024x768 works then you reboot and it stays there.
but not if the driver for you VGA chip is missing or wrong.
means get it and load it now. in safe mode F8
is this pc connected to the internet as it must?

SOURCE: EVO N600c starts up fine but when when its time to sign in nothing on screen just blank

Both of you, what did you do before the restart? If you changed anything while in Winblows it seems likely it is a software related issue. If you didn't, then a hardware issue is possible, in which case I'd start by unplugging the non-essential peripherals and restart. If that doesn't work, also try a different power supply and disconnect the battery. Sometimes a bad peripheral can cause the boot up sequence to hang. And correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe a weak psu can undersupply power to the harddrive causing the operating system to fail to boot. But, you probably have tried these ideas so they may not be of much help. Oh well, good luck!

Screen has a yellow tint that I have not been able to get rid of.

Try this instead

change out the connector in the back of the computer, or the monitor cable (Replacement cable *see below) While the connector/ cable is going out it can give a solid hue across the entire screen.

You can also try updating the video drive through device manager to see if an updated is need.

Hope that helps.

Try Plugging an External Monitor to your SVGA Port on the system.
Then use your function button (Fn) and hit the external monitor button (Looks like a Monitor or TV screen) ...reason for this.
Is you might have your system set to external mode to use a monitor instead of being set to the main screen of your laptop.

Hope this helps.

How can i connect my two monitor in one pc..thanks


If you want to work with two monitors you can buy a monitor switch box or a second video card to connect two SVGA monitors to one computer. You'll need Windows XP or Mac OS X or newer one. For details please watch the Video by clicking on below link.

With all cords hooked up there is no pic and a blue lite blinking

This means you are not getting a signal to the monitor.
If you have 2 SVGA outlets on the back of your computer, are you using the correct one?

Next, I would suspect that the display on your video is out of range for the monitor. On the computer start-up, start hitting the F8 key until you get the black and white menu. Choose the VGA option to get Windows started and then you can set the correct resolution.

Have a look on the back of the monitor for the output socket.

If the socket is blue with 15 round holes then this is a SVGA socket, if it is white then it's a DVI socket. Though I believe that this monitor only had SVGA outputs.

Look for these same sockets on the G4, and connect the cable to the matching socket.

If you have one which is blue and one white you will need an adapter for the cable.

Out of range external monitor

The max resolution supported by that LCD HDTV is 1366 x 768. If your screen resolution in XP is set higher than that, you'll run into issues. Reduce your screen resolution first, then run the nVidia multiple display setup.

Sync out Of range

You need to get the monitor back into a range it can use and the best way is to go into SAFE mode on the pc put it back into 640X 480 and at 60 hz refresh rate. 37.9khz is way too high for the monitor!
It is best in the 60hz to 80 hz (if it can go that high!) start at 60 to begin with and it will work.
Good Luck!
