Question about iiyama ProLite E380S-S 15" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Out of range

Dear Shapir,
Many thanks for your suggested solution, the only way that I know of starting in safe mode is by tapping F5 during start up but this does not offer the option to "Start in VGA mode".
the system is Windows Vista Home Premium. Any idea what I am doing wrong? Regards tricotafia

Monitor is out of range you need to reconnect the old monitor and manually reduce the display resolution to say 1024x768 and see if you can start then you may also have to change the refresh rate to 60 hz in the display section of the advanced tab, hope this helps

You may not have given us enough info; it may make a difference which computer and/or operating system you are using.
If Windows, try restarting the system and tapping on the F5 or F8 key (not always the same) to reach a short menu with a choice of boot routines. If you have it, choose the 'Safe Mode.' This loads only a minimum of drivers and only a crude video resolution but gives you a chance on examining the settings for normal operation and if needed, removing an offending program.

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.

Stars then says frequency out of range

start your computer in safe mode. Here's how to do it.

  • If the computer is running, shut down Windows, and then turn off the power
  • Wait 30 seconds, and then turn the computer on.
  • Start tapping the F8 key. The Windows Advanced Options Menu appears. If you begin tapping the F8 key too soon, some computers display a "keyboard error" message. To resolve this, restart the computer and try again.
  • Ensure that the Safe mode option is selected.
  • Press Enter. The computer then begins to start in Safe mode.
once the computer is in safe mode, click on start > run and type desk.cpl. go to settings and then screen resolution. drag the slider to the left for the lowest setting. then press apply then ok. and restart your PC.

How to change resulution when you get input not

Try starting Windows in Safe Mode. During boot, before windows starts loading, just keep tapping F8, until a menu appears in which you can select Safe Mode. In Safe Mode, set the resolution to a safe, low value in the control panel. Then reboot normally, and everything should work fine.

Monitor says out of range

1. Turn off the computer.
2. Turn on the computer.
3. As soon as it starts up press and tap the F8 key.
3a. If a "boot menu" appears, select hard drive, press enter, and immediately press the F8 key again.
4. The safe mode menu should appear. If it does not, start over.
5. Select "Enable VGA mode".
6. The computer will now boot to native 640 x 480 resolution. You may now use the display properties to set it back to normal, within your monitor's range of course :c)

Black screen

Seems like a virus or so messed with your display drivers :

Reboot and start your computer in safe mode (by pressing F8 at boot)
When in safe mode, go to your control panel and add/remove programs and remove your nvidia/ati drivers from there, it will resolve the display problem but not your virus problem, for this one, you'll have to make a complete scan with a good antivirus like Antivir or Avast (they're free), and the best would be to scan in safe mode also

Hope it helped

I was adjusting picture on monitor and now picture completely messed up

  • Signal out of Range.
  • Out Of Scan Range
  • Horizontal frequency is out of range.
  • Cannot Display This Video Mode Out of Sync

This issue may occur if the signal from the video adapter exceeds the scan range of the monitor. The video adapter setting for updating the screen (the refresh rate) is incompatible with the monitor.
you should reinstall your video drivers in safe mode.

To restart in safe mode repeatedly press the F8 key during the computer startup. This will bring a menu where you'll be able to choose safe mode.
