I'm assuming you have xp. If you do go to the monitor settings in control panel and change it there. If you feel that all of the settings are not there. IE you don't have enough choices you can go to the (In your case gateway.com/support type in your product number and for the resolution choices there is a driver that if you have a probably larger monitor you can download.

Dell 780


This is not a GPO issue. The problem is that all Windows will attempt to set the new resolution and a fail-safe is that if you do not click the Keep Changes button after thirty seconds it switches back to the old settings. This ensures that if you set the resolution to a range the monitor or display adapter can't handle that you don't get 'stuck' with a blank screen.
Check that the display adapter in the Dell 780 can handle a resolution of 1280x1024 and that the monitor can also handle this resolution.

How do i fix if my computer scan is out of range


I am assuming you are talking about your monitor. What this message means is that your monitor can't handle the resolution your video card is set to. Re-start your computer and as soon as the first screen goes by (you know the one with all numbers and stuff) start hitting the F8 key. This will start the computer in safe mode which uses a very low resolution (usually 640 x 480). Once you see the display set the resolution to 800x600 which any display can handle. Re-boot and log in again and change the resolution to something higher. Test different settings. If you set one that is too high and you can't see the screen again don't touch anything as the screen will revert back to the previous setting if you do not confirm.

Hope this helps. If it does don't forget to give me a thumbs up.

I connected my ps3 to my viewsonic vx2235wm and it says out of range or wont have a picture


The PS3 video output setting is too high for the monitor to handle, native resolution for this Viewsonic is 1680x1050. Try running the PS3 at 640x480 first and start changing the resolution to higher level.

Frequency out of range 11khz/ 119khz message


The PC is sending out the resolution that is too high for the monitor to handle, you need to set the resolution of the PC to be the native resolution of the monitor and set the refesh rate to be at 60Hz.

Comp 'out of range' not operational due to changing resolution


The Monitor you are using cannot handle the new resolution you just set on your system. The only way to use the system with that monitor is to use a monitor that can handle the reolution and reset the resolution back to what the monitor can handle.
You need to take yours system to an experienced Technician who will reset the system resolution to what your monitor can handle. Althernatively if you are in an IT environment, use a more rescent model of monitor or a flatscreen monitor to reset the systems' resolution before connecting back your monitor.

Out of range


I usually see this caused by settings on the computer that the monitor can not handle.

Lower the resolution on your computer or raise it slightly if resolution is already low.

If that doesn't work, check other settings like refresh rate. Pretty much, just make sure all settings can be handled by the new monitor. You can find out exactly what the monitor can handle by looking at its specs.

Try setting your computer itself to a lower resolution first say

1024 x 768

It may be that you are pushing the resolution to high for the monitor to handle

it will work but the resolution will be off and you wont get the best quality since the screen is bigger than the video card can handle.. i would get a new video card that would provide enough resolution to get the best results from your monitor.. i had to upgrade when i hooked my computer up to a 32" tv

Hi Dubz,

It sounds to me that you might be setting the resolution to something that your monitor cannot handle. Check your monitor manual for the supported resolutions and try one of them.

If you dont have the manual try 800 x 600 or 1024 x 768 as most monitor support those resolutions.

Regards
