    My resolution was 1680 by 1050. But now my screen resolution is 1600 by 1200

    Same. I have had the VS monitor and 8800GT 512 meg for over a year set at 1680X1050...three days ago this resolution seemingly disappeared. I cannot find this resolution in display settings or through Nvidia Control Panel. The monitor goes to 1440X900 or 1600X1200. 1680X1050 doesn;t exist.



    I have contacted Nvidia and I have gone through a series of step by step instructions but with no luck.



    Any ideas from anyone?

I ran this monitor for ages on a gforce 7800gt graphics card with flight sim and had no problems until one day it did exactly the same thing.

After uninstalling and re-installing Drivers for both screen and graphics card failed I searched the forums and it is not the monitors fault, its the graphics card not understanding the monitor. The card reacts to any changes you have made to it and adapts to suit (Eg; LCD screens, TV's, S.Video cables etc)

With the Monitor you get a DVI cable. Switch off the computer, unplug your VGA cable and plug in the DVI cable then switch the computer back on.

When the computer reboots to the main screen go into the NVIDIA menu and select single screen view (disable all clones with TV's)

Now in the resolution choices in the NVIDIA menu the resolutions will have changed to max 1680x1050.

Hope this helps.

Monitor says "Out of Range"


This normally happens when display resolution is changed to higher resolution and cannot be compatible/displayed by monitor. Either plug in another monitor and lower down resolution or Press F8 and go to advanced boot option and start your computer in safe mode and try changing display resolution. If it still doesn't works and you have the drivers for you display adapter (video card) then uninstall display adapter from device manager by booting in safe mode. Once you get to normal boot mode reinstall drivers for display adapter.

SOYO DYLM24E6 DISPLAYS OUT OF RANGE WAS TOLD MONITOR HAS A RESET BUTTON IF SO WHERE OR IS THERE A FIX FOR THIS MONITOR IT IS NEW


Restart your computer in Safe Mode
(or reconnect your previous monitor).

Set the screen-resolution to 800 by 600 at 60 Hertz.
Shutdown, connect the new monitor, and restart, and your Soyo monitor will be able to display something, using these "NOT-out-of-range" values.

Try changing the resolution to 1024-by-768, or 1280-by-1024,
and "test' these values, to see what values are "in-range" for your new monitor.

QUESTION: Monitor says:


Reboot your computer and press the F8 key right before you see the XP loading splash screen. You should get a menu that lists things like safe mode and vga mode. Select the vga mode option and hit enter twice. This will boot windows into 640x480 resolution and will allow you to change the resolution back to 1024x768 at 60hz

It says "input not supported" whenever i change the resolution higher than 1280 1080..i changed my vga card to my onboard one...cause at least here i can see everything clear with the resolution of 1280...


hi there,
looks like windows does not know how to handle the monitor.
You may try to disable the onboard graphic card in the BIOS before
hooking up the monitor to the nvidia card. then try to run windows in safe mode(by pressing F8 when booting up), it'll run windows with the lowest available resolution, which will be supported by the monitor.
Now download appropriate driver for monitor, install and reboot.

That should do the trick

good luck

RectangulaR box on my screen says: input not supported


If your monitor is displaying a message, that's good news: Your monitor is not shut. What the message is saying is that either the refresh rate frequency, or the resolution you have set your video card to on your pc/laptop, is too high for your LCD (I assume) monitor, and it cannot handle these settings.
It would appear that the default refresh rate for LCDs is only 60Hhz.
Reboot your machine in SAFE MODE, pressing the F8 key repeatedly as soon as the initial POST messages disappear from the screen. Next, select Safe Mode from the different options shown.
Once the PC starts and you're running Windows, go to Control Panel->Appearance and Personalization->Adjust Screen Resolution->Advanced Settings->Adapter->List All Modes and verify that the resolution that's been set is within the range allowed by your monitor.
Your user's manual should have this information. In case you don't have this information, change it to something safe, like 800 x 600 pixels, at 60Hz refresh rate.
Close all windows, reboot, and Voila! Your monitor is back to life!
Should you wish to continue to improve your monitor resolution, then right click anywhere on an empty spot on your desktop, and choose Personalize->Adjust Display Settings, and try a higher resolution, remembering to leave the refresh rate at 60Hz.
Good luck!

Dell 86oo lapton, monitor goes black after start up completes.


The problem is likely that the resolution set on your computer is not compatible with the resolution set on your monitor. The easiest way to fix this is to hook up your old monitor and manually change the resolution to the native resolution on your monitor. Your documentation will have this info. If that does not work then you would need to reset your CMOS chip by shorting two pins. Input your computer make and model into google for a motherboard manual. It will tell you how to do this. Then it will be at the default resolution and you can adjust it from there.

Resolution


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.
