Try this
Start the computer in Safe mode.
From the Start menu, click Run.
In the Run dialog box, type: regedit, and then click OK.
In the Registry Editor dialog box, double-click HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, Config, 0001, and then Display, Settings.
In the right pane, double-click RefreshRate.
Change the value data to 60, and then click OK.
Double-click Resolution.
Change the value data to 640,480, and then click OK.
Restart the computer in Normal mode

If that doesn't work, you may have some video card issues.
Check to make sure all cables are properly connected and they are in good condition.
Hope It works =)

Please help.. my monitor has no display and my don't even beep. the LED in the monitor turns back to orange after few seconds. cpu, disk drives and ram are working..


This is one of the serious problem that arises because if you set your monitor with a high resolution with high frequency, then the monitor doesn't display anything as it's frequency is out of the rang or limit of the monitor's actual resolution capacity. Each monitor will have a limit of max frequency that is said to be the Refresh rate (for each and every resolution setting the display is refreshed.) When high resolution is set with high frequency that is not supported by the monitor, it then display a message like "frequency out of range". If you press ESC key within the few seconds of this setting, it will revert back to its initial resolution. But if you continued with the setting of same High resolution with High frequency, the monitor is not going to display anything because its frequency is out of the range. Most of old monitors like CRT's etc doesn't support 1024×768 at a refresh rate greater than 60Hz.

Keep getting "frequency out of range" meassage


Sounds like there is an issue with the video card settings versus your monitor.

Try the following:

1.) Press F8 on boot and select VGA mode then once into the OS reset the video card options

2.) Try another monitor

3.) If you have video card, swap it out. If you have onboard graphics put a card in

Cheers...please post your results.

In the middle of my screen a blue box is showing and in it this reads OUT OF RANGE H. FREQUENCY 68.7 KHz V. FREQUENCY 85.0Hz What does this mean and how can I fix it this was a gift...


That message appears when the Windoze display settings exceed the monitor capabilities. If you will boot into windoze safe mode (F8 at boot) and correct the display settings, the message should clear at the next boot. Afterwards you can right click on the desktop and access the display settings to make final adjustments.

In your case, the refresh rate (V Frequency) should not exceed 70 Hz

Out of range message


This is caused by a resolution and/or refresh frequency setting in your computer's display properties that exceeds the values supported by the monitor.
Find out the optimum (native) resolution of your monitor (in case of AMV 17V5 it will be 1280x1024 pixels), and supported refresh frequency (usually 60Hz for LCD monitors), and set your display properties to these values.

"out of frequency range" message nothing works


Try booting to the ENABLE VGA mode off the F8 menu if you can get to the desktop and then you can go to display properties and see if you can reset the resolution to normal. If no go, try updating the video driver
