It means that the display settings of your computer (resolution, refresh rate) have been set beyond the monitor's capabilities. It's best to boot Windows in Safe Mode, then you should get the picture ok, and set the display settings according to your monitor's optimum resolution and refresh rate.

My Asus VK191S monitor comes up with the following error "out of range". How do i solve this

You will need to change the screen resolution of your computer. It means that the monitor cant handle that screen resolution. If your are unable to access your computer because of this my may have to hook it up to a monitor that can handle it then go turn the resolution all the resolution. Then hook up the Asus monitor and work your way up. till its at the highest resolution without saying "out of range" you do this by right clicking on a blank space on the desktop and going to properties or personalize then display settings or a similar tab or category :) hope this helps

Says out of range

Out of range means that your computer resolution is set too high for the monitor to understand and accept.
Try restarting the computer with the screen turned on and that may correct it.
If not, You may have to reset your computer resolution to a lower level using a different monitor then hook up the viewsonic.

Go into display options and set the resolution it is not set at the right resolution for the monitor.
800x600, 1024x768 these are the settings you will need to experiment with.

Change from a monitor to a flatscreen

You need hook up your old monitor back and set the PC video resolution to 1024 × 768 @ 60Hz which is the native/max resolution of the E15T4, remove the old Dell monitor and connect your E15T4.
You are getting out of range because your PC video resolution is too high for the E15T4 to display.

Screen says out of range

I would say that the computer is trying to use a display resolution that the monitor is incapable of displaying. You may have to lower the resolution from the PC before you get a picture. Make sure you install the correct drivers for the monitor onto the new computer and use a different monitor to adjust the display resolution to a level that the monitor is capable of displaying.

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.

StarLogic- Out of range

The computer needs its screen resolution reducing or changing in aspect ratio to suit the StarLogic monitor. Use a previously-working monitor and reduce the resolution on the computer to 1024 x 768 pixels or less (right-click an unused part of the desktop, click Properties and select Settings; slide the resolution slider to the left to adjust). The StarLogic monitor will now work; plug it in - do the resolution adjustment again as above, but increasing the resolution until you are happy. Going this way around, your computer will failsafe back to the previous (lower) resolution if the monitor says Out Of Range again, so you cannot lose the display along the way..
