When you switch on your P.C. and let it finish booting up, try to get the cursor visible on the screen where you can see it, then RIGHT CLICK the desktop background and you should get a pop up appear. Windows7 will say SCREEN RESOLUTION, select this and you will notice you can change your settings there. Vista should be the same, XP should be simiar maybe showing SETTINGS or DISPLAY...

I want my monitor to work once again because it says cannot display video mode? i dont understand help me?


You didn't say which OS you're running. However, it looks like you need to restart your computer in safe mode. This URL explains how to get in safe mode. When the computer boots the video it will look a bit grainy and you won't be able to see the entire desktop without using the scroll bars.

Both XP and Vista don't allow you to perform such an operation through the regular procedure and, as a result, you will only be able to get a screen resolution of 800×600 with the consequence that some icons and programs won't be displayed correctly. This is because Safe Mode just loads only basic services and drivers which are strictly necessary for Windows to run.

Fortunately, by employing the following techniques, you can get around this restriction permitting you to get whatever screen resolution you want.

Windows XP:
  1. Right click on your desktop.
  2. Click Properties.
  3. Click the Settings tab.
  4. Under Screen Resolution, drag the pointer to the right (where higher resolutions are located).
  5. Click Advanced.
  6. On the new window click OK, without modifying anything.
  7. Done, you should have successfully changed the resolution settings.
Windows Vista:
  1. Right click on your desktop.
  2. Click Personalize.
  3. Click Display Settings.
  4. Under Resolution, drag the pointer to the right (where higher resolutions are located).
  5. Click Advanced Settings.
  6. On the new window click OK, without modifying anything.
  7. Done, you should have successfully change the resolution settings.

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

Monitor just says out of range no matter what I do, I have switched the cords already


When a monitor is out of range it means that the computer is set up to a resolution that the monitor cannot handle

what you need to do is turn on your computer and tap F8 repeatably untill you confront a screen asking you what you want to do

you want Safe Mode with VGA

this will start windows in Safe mode (default settings for everything) and will set the resolution to 800x600 (smallest resolution supported by everything) when you are at the desktop you can just change the resolution of your screen normally

Windows Vista/7
right click the desktop > Screen resolution

Windows XP/98 etc
Right click the desktop > properties and it will be in there somewhere (don't have an XP machine in front of me sorry)

I HAVE A PROBLEM WHEN TO AJUSMENT A SCREEN RESOLUTION & NOW IS COMPLITY BLACK SCREEN


In order to restore your resolution to one that can be displayed by your monitor, you need to restart the computer and enter Safe Mode. To do that, press the F8 key right before the Windows logo shows up during boot (just keep pressing it until you get it).
It should show a menu, from where you must choose to boot in "Safe Mode".
After Windows loads up in Safe Mode, just open the screen resolution settings (right click on the desktop, select Properties) and select 800x600. Click on OK.
Now restart the computer normally and let it boot into Windows. You should be able to see and change the resolution (using the same method mentioned above) to any desired.
Hope that helps!

Out of range


When your wxternal monitor says "Out of Range" it may mean that your resolution settings on your computer are set too high.

One way to diagnose and solve this is to reboot your machine.

During bootup press the F8 button to enter Safe Mode.

When prompted, select Safe Mode.

Your machine will then boot up with the mnimum amount of drivers required to run the Windows operating system.

Once you have loggin into your computer, right-click on the Desktop and select Properties.

The Display Prpoerties window will pop up. Select the Settings tab.

Slide the idicator to 1024x768 and hit Apply, then Ok.

Restart your computer and your monitory should display your computer screen.

Please classify this with the appropriate computer brand and model.

SOYO DYLM24E6 DISPLAYS OUT OF RANGE WAS TOLD MONITOR HAS A RESET BUTTON IF SO WHERE OR IS THERE A FIX FOR THIS MONITOR IT IS NEW


Restart your computer in Safe Mode
(or reconnect your previous monitor).

Set the screen-resolution to 800 by 600 at 60 Hertz.
Shutdown, connect the new monitor, and restart, and your Soyo monitor will be able to display something, using these "NOT-out-of-range" values.

Try changing the resolution to 1024-by-768, or 1280-by-1024,
and "test' these values, to see what values are "in-range" for your new monitor.

QUESTION: Monitor says:


Reboot your computer and press the F8 key right before you see the XP loading splash screen. You should get a menu that lists things like safe mode and vga mode. Select the vga mode option and hit enter twice. This will boot windows into 640x480 resolution and will allow you to change the resolution back to 1024x768 at 60hz

It is when you see this BIOS or Dell logo Screen that you Need to:
  • PRESS F8
  • Press F8
  • Press F8, again, and again right when your computer turns on.
Then You should be brought to the Window that allows you to boot into SAFE MODE, DO NoT PICK SAFE MODE.

Pick: ------------ENABLE VGA (basically safe mode) Only!.

Once booted, log in and change the resolution to let's say 800x600,
then restart your computer normally.

You should then be able run windows normally, (Without F8 Key) where you can then change the resolution to what you want.

IMPORTANT! Remember this, if you set your display to a resolution that it Does Not

support, and the screen goes blank. DO Not Turn off your computer: ALL YOU DO IS PRESS

the (Esc) ESCAPE Key within 15 Seconds and your monitor's resolution will be set to it's

previous state again.

I Hope This Helps.
