Question about Computers & Internet

I have now have a "video mode not supported" message on my L705 Hyndai monitor screen which came up right after I tried to change the resolution on my windows xp display. I can't get the monitor to show anything else and nothing i do to the monitor's menu buttons work to change this. I rebooted, unplugged, and nothing worked. I can't see anything else on the monitor. The monitor was working fine until I tried to change the settings. Need to get it back to where it was before. Help! I'm doing this chat from a different PC.

I am sorry, I lost my connection to you. Where you able to get any video, or change the resolution?
I will respond to this post with further help if you need me to walk you through the options that we discussed.
If you can borrow someone elses monitor that would be your best bet because safe mode is not giving you any video either.

Let me know

First connect you're monitor on to another system if possible. This will only make sure you're monitor is still working ok.
You're system needs to be shut down. (Keep you're monitor connected to you're system).
Than start it up and press the F5 key on you're keyboard every 2 seconds. This will bring up a screen that looks just like the one below;

Choose Safe mode from the list. Once you are in windows safe mode open windows control panel than open the display icon. Change the settings to where they were before you made changes. Chances are you need to lower the refresh rate and the resolution. Than save and exit the display properties. Close control panel. Cross you're finger and re-start you're system. If this doesn't work you'll have no choice but to hook up a much better monitor to you're system so you can change the display settings.

Cheers'

One workaround:

Start up in Safe Mode (by pressing F8 key at boot, before the Windows logo comes up). Leave your resolution at 800x600. Open your device manager and uninstall your video display driver Reboot normally. Your system will revert to VGA mode, and should redetect your video hardware, as well as require one more reboot. It will probably default to 800x600 resolution.

After that last reboot, you should be able to change your desktop resolution (I would not recommend using the settings that didn't work the last time).

Normally, Windows reverts to the previous desktop size/refresh rate settings after 15 seconds if the attempt was unsuccessful (meaning if nothing shows after you change your settings, don't press any keys for at least 20 seconds).

Good Luck!

Fixing 'Out of range', 'Format not supported' message


When the video card signal exceeds the frequency allowed for the monitor, the following error message may occur:
Sync out of Range, Out of range, Format not supported
SOLUTION (FROM HP):
To avoid the message, lower the resolution or vertical frequency of the video card.
Reboot the system and use the VGA mode to force the video card driver to lower its resolution. Follow these steps.
1. Shut down and restart the system.
For consumer systems such as HP Pavilion desktop PCs, push the Power button once.
For commercial systems such as HP business desktop PCs, hold down the Power button for five seconds.
2. Immediately after seeing the HP/Compaq logo screen, press F8 at system startup to initiate the bootup menu.
3. Scroll down to highlight Enable VGA Mode , and press ENTER .
4. After Microsoft Windows completes its bootup process, access the Display Properties and select a desired resolution, which is compatible to the connected monitor. Reboot

When i put pc on this message comes up on screen saying input not supported and it floats round in a little box.


Hello,
This generally means you have the display resolution set higher then the monitor can support. To fix this press F8 after you turn the computer on. You may have to press it a couple times before the windows loading screen. A black menu will come up. Select safe mode. Your PC will load into safe mode with minimal drivers and settings. Go to the control panel and select display. Change your screen resolution to something lower then the setting is is at right now. If your screen is 19" or smaller try a setting of 1024x768 for starters. If its 20" or higher try 1280x1024 for starters.
Regards, Chris

My monitor has an "input


Out of range typically means that the resolution in windows is set higher then the monitor can support. You will need to get into windows to remedy this.
You can do this one of two ways. You can try to hook up to a more advanced monitor and do it.
OR
If you have video at first, you can press F8 as the computer is starting to boot up. this will open the advanced booting options menu. Select Run in VGA mode OR you can try Safe mode. Once you are in there you can change the resolution by Right clicking on the desktop and selecting Properties or Personalize. Then under display settings you can adjust the screen resolution using the slider bar. Set it to something like 1024x768 and then save exit and reboot normally. Once in there you can look up the max screen resolution your monitor supports and set it accordingly.
Hope this helps. Please vote if so.

I have a message on my monitor that says, Out of Range. What can I do about it?


you need to change your screen resolution. the best way would be to hook it up to a bigger monitor or a television- one that can handle the present screen resolution, and then back the resolution down before re-hooking up the 19" monitor.

or you could boot in safe mode, uninstall the video driver, and then reinstall the driver, to reset the screen resolution to a basic resolution.

to change your screen resolution (hooked up to a different monitor) right click on the desktop and select "properties" in xp or "personalization>screen resolution" in vista/7.

Message states mode not supported


If you are talking about dual screen mode, some monitors do not support this. And some do not support dual screen at the current resolution setting. Play with the resolution by right clicking an open area of your desktop, then click properties, and then advanced. There should be a slider indicating resolution (in xp at least) After that, then the monitor itself does not support dual screen. Best of Luck to you!

GX520 screen display message: cannot display this video mode


This means that the windows setting you have set can not display on your current monitor. There are two ways to fix this, one is to boot the computer in safe mode by pressing f8 after the POST screen and change the resolution and the other is to plug the computer into a different monitor to see if supports that resolution and then change the resolution in windows to a lower setting.

In case you don't know how to change the resolution in windows, follow below.

Right click on the desktop
Properties
Settings at the top
Move the slider to 1024x768
Click ok

Try rebooting. If that still doesn't work, try another resolution.

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!

Monitor problems


You need to change down the res. to a minor mode. i.e. 800x600 low quality. For Windows enter the protected mode - i.e. after POST (bootup) press F8 then enter with your account, or the administrator. Right-click anywhere on the empty desktop and enter "Properties" menu. Turn the screen resolution down in there (i.e. 800x600); also, check whether your current monitor is recognized by model in there. Re-adjust to a suitable working resolution. If all fails, you can also de-install the video card driver in admin protected mode to go back to basics. Of course You need to re-install it again afterwards when in your original Windows.
