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

Re: Out of range
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.
When you power up the compute press F8 key then enter in :"Enable vga mode" then go to display property and set screen resolution to 1024*768. Then check . If still same then enter in safe mode and uninstall graphic driver then start computer normal mode then install graphic driver. Also in safe mode go to start->run type in run "chkdsk /r" then press ok then press "y" then restart computer then it fix and recovers error on harddrive. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.
start your computer in safe mode. Here's how to do it.
computer is running, shut down Windows, and then turn off the power
seconds, and then turn the computer on.
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.
that the Safe mode option is selected.
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.
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.
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)
Thanks and please take a moment to rate this solution with a thumbs up, solved problem rating...after all I did just prevent your death :c) THANKS
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
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.
