Your computer has is set for a higher resolution than your tv can handle. Lower the resolution on your computer and problem should go away.

My Monitor shows out of range problem when we restart our computer and i m using windows XP on that computer


Okay there are a couple of possible ways to fix this. Of course I am assuming I know what is wrong.

If this problem just started happening out of the blue for no apparent reason then try this:

Restart you machine. While it is booting (but before is shows the windows logo) start tapping the F8 key. If you do this right you should get a menu with a number of Windows boot up choices.

One of the choices should be 'Boot in Safe Mode'. Use the Up and Down arrows to highlight this choice and hit Enter.

When Windows gets ready to boot the Desktop in Safe Mode it will first ask you if you want to run System Restore. Do so.

Pick a restore point before the trouble started. This MAY fix your problem.

If this fails to fix the problem there are so other things you can try.

Follow the same instructions as above but when the boot options menu comes up after hitting F8 instead of selecting 'Boot in Safe Mode' instead select 'Enable VGA Mode'.

If this lets you get to the Desktop of with you monitor working then right click on an empty spot on your Desktop and select 'Properties'.

Then click on the 'Settings' tab (on the far right). Then set the resolution (slider in the lower left corner) to what ever you usually use.

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!

I have sony vgc-ra-834g, computer working in past no problem, i turn computer on in boots up and stops and montor indicates that is out of range, anyone?

It means your system display card settings are too high for your monitor. Boot your system into safe mode and set the display settings lower. When you boot your computer, before it shows the windows loading logo press F8 to get into safe mode. When windows loads right click on your desktop and choose properties. depending on what operating system you have, after poking around you should find a setting measured in hz, in a drop down menu, and lower it (60 hz is usually the default for most monitors.)

I am getting a purple out of range box on my screen that floats from top left to bottom right that I can't get rid of.

It is because your Windows monitor settings are OUT OF RANGE if you can boot into Windows normaly just rite click on the desktop, chose properties, than settings tab (if it's XP), go to advance, than monitor, look for frequency refresh rate, change to 60Hz, than save, than reboot

if you can't boot into Windows, try booting in SAFE MODE by pressing (F8) key at startup than do the above starting at -- rite click on the desktop...

Good luck!

Signal out of range

1: Signal out of range meas the monitor can't handle the input refresh rate. lcd and Tft monitors usually supports 60 and 75Hz refresh rates.
2: The Resolution you are using to view the desktop is too high, this number is depending on the size of the lcd monitor.
a 15" lcd usually runs with: 1024x768 with 60hz
a 17" lcd usually runs with: 1280x1024 with 60hz some of them supports 75hz.
a 19" lcd usually runs with 1600x1200 or higher.

I recommend reading the user manual if you have it, or checking the information on the manufacturer's website.

3: As a solution turn on your computer and after it passes the bios screen press F8 and select VGA mode.

This will enable 640x480 (standard vga) resolution and 60Hz refresh rate, after windows boots up you can change thease nmbers , and windows automatically asks for turning to 800x600 60Hz.

If you want to change the resolution go to: Right click on your desktop, select properties , select settings tab, and adjust the resolution on the bottom of the window.

Hope this helps, good luck.

Pc connection doesnt work with computer

The TV you are hooking it to is not able to show the resolution you have the computer set to. Start by setting your computer resolution to 800 x 600. If that works than try 1024 x 768. If you go too high you will get that "out of range" message. The instruction book that came with your TV has a listing of the available resolutions the TV will show.
