This means the output from the computer is running at a higher resoloution then the monitor can support.'
Try this:

  1. Start the computer
  2. When the bois page vanishes, start pressing F8
  3. You will get a Windows Startup options page
  4. If instead you see the Windows Logo screen, just hit reset and try again.
  5. On the options page select "Safe Mode" press enter twice
  6. When Windows has loaded, right click on the desktop and select "Desplay Properties" Another window will pop up.
  7. Select Display Properties on the last tab at the top of this window.
  8. There will be a slider on the left side near the bottom, slide it left to about 800x600, press Apply then OK.
  9. Restart Windows
That should solve the issue =)

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.

The monitor keeps going blank with a message ''no signal'' or ''out of range''.


Probably you are out of the resolution range for this monitor. Try to boot you computer in safe mode (for low resolution) using F8 just before the windows start screen, step down the resolution, restart and try step by step to upgrade the screen resolution.

I ran a driver scan on my ACER Power2000 and the results said one of my drivers was out of date. (Unfortunately I didn't note which one it was, except that it was an Intel.) So I downloaded and installed...


Hey

Ok, the resolution the computer is using now is out of the range that is supported, try another monitor or try pressing F8 on the startup to get the advanced startup menu then select safe mode, in safe mode uninstall the driver you installed, this should return it to normal, then restart the computer and in normal mode you will need to install the old driver to get everything back to normal.
