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

Problem with XP home edition, ecvhost.exe missing

go into safe mode , I think you hit either F5 or F8 during start up. You want safe mode with networking perhaps. From safe mode attempt a recovery to an earlier date when your machine was working.

I cant seem to get into safe mode on my comp

When you first turn the computer on Keep tapping F8 if that doesnt work Try F5.
If you can get into Windows then you can make the computer boot into Safe mode next time you start it up using MSConfig.
If you have XP you will need to Start > Run > msconfig.exe Windows Vista / 7, Start > (Type in the start search box under All Programs) msconfig, you will notice it come up and the top of the box > Click on it and when prompted by UAC click Continue / Yes.
Now that you are in MSConfig under the general tap select Diagnostic Startup, press apply then OK, you will not be prompted to restart the computer. Restart and it will put you into Safe Mode.

How to start your computer in safe mode

When your computer is starting up, you need to tap F8 until the advanced boot up menu appears (it will have safe-mode in the list so it will be obvious when you see it). Now since I don't know what motherboard you have, I can only assume that it's the F8 key that you need to press because that is the most common. On my sister's computer though it's F5. Anyway though, as your computer is starting up constantly tap the F8 key and if the menu doesn't appear then start over and try the F5 key, if that doesn't work restart and start going through each of the F-keys until it appears. Sorry, but that's the best I can offer without your motherboard model.
Hope this helps!

Displays work fine until After Windows splash screen appears...then unit goes dark on both LCD and External display... Tried fn F5 combination with no success.. Any suggestions??

I suspect a display driver problem - try safe mode. After powering on, start tapping on the F8 key about once a second. You should end up with a bunch of white text on a black background. Options will include "Safe Mode" and "Last Known Good Configuration......". You could try the latter as sometimes that's enough to get you to a desktop. If not then power off/power on and try safe mode. If this gets you to a desktop then it is likely a driver issue and further work will be needed to to get you fixed up. Please post back with your experiences.

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.

My computer froze during shut down, so I turned it off using the power button. When I start it up It gives me the options of starting normally, Last known good configuration, safe mode safe mode with...

Try go into BIOS by hitting the DEL key or F1 or F2 as you start and go to save Cmos config. then reboot.
The other approach is Last known Good config is the best. This can be brought up after presing power button then by tapping F8 till screen apears.. Select Last known Good Config

When i switch my computer on, i only see the aspire series display on my screen.i cant see any of the desktop icons and even the start botten and all the icons bellow.

Windows has eaten itself - again.
You need to enter via the 'Safe Mode' to try to locate the problem.
As soon as you hit the power button, start tapping first F5 and if that doesn't work, reboot and tap F8. Once of these should bring up a short menu with a couple of selections; choose the 'Safe' mode. This limits the number of files loaded during boot and is mostly successful in giving you limited access.
Try this and give us a shout back how it goes.

Windows has shut down my computer. It said the following: A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. I need to know how to get out of this

Try to start in safe mode. On some computers it is F5 or F8 during boot. Hitting delete while booting will open setup which may get you to safe mode. Once there, you need to do virus checking, and stuff like that.
