Try updating the video driver.

Check Compaq's support page for your model here.

HP and Compaq are the same company now so don't let that throw you off ;)

Also you have a 2100 series, there is a specific model number on the bottom ;)

Check the monitor in the device manager. NOT regular display properties. Make sure the monitor is the correct type. Try different settings in device manager for the monitor. Maybe try uninstalling the video card drivers, reboot and reinstall the drivers. Let me know if this does not work.

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.

Ok I think i found your problem. You don't need to install any drivers.

Switch your display to 256 colors To switch your display to 256 colors
Some games and other software programs require that your monitor be set to 256 colors, or they run better in 256 colors. Many of those programs will switch your monitor to 256 colors automatically when you start the program. For those that don't, follow the steps below if you want to switch the display temporarily while the game or program is running.
  1. On your desktop or on the Start menu, right-click the game or other program that you want to run in 256 colors, and then click Properties.
  2. Click the Compatibility tab.
  3. Select the Run in 256 colors check box.
  • The screen will revert to your default color quality when you close the program.
  • Try switching to 256 colors if your software program shows the wrong color or the graphics redraw slowly.
  • If your software program appears in a small window in the center of your screen, you can increase its size by changing your screen resolution temporarily. Follow the procedure above, but in step 3 select the Run in 640x480 screen resolution check box. Your screen resolution will revert to its previous resolution when you close the program.
  • The Compatibility tab is available only for programs or games located on your computer's hard disk. It is not available if the program is stored on a floppy disk, compact disk, or a network.

This maybe due to lack of Video Card/Monitor drivers or the resolution is set to a small size. You will have to find out which video card you have, and if you have an LCD sometimes they come with drivers (Samsung LCDs have drivers). To find out what video card you have, you can usually go off the model name and number of your computer and get the drivers from your manufacturer's website. If it is a home built computer, you will have to look at the card/motherboard model and serial numbers to figure out the video card they use. Normally XP has a default video driver and it should not do a miniature resolution, but it happens sometimes.

This should be your graphics card driver is not it. The original installation of hardware drivers may be better.

If that is not what system you set up the software in question. Can be re-systems.

Screen colors


possibly screen color depth is set to 16 colors. - open control panel display - settings tab, slide the color depth to 16 bit. - change resolution to 800 x 600 for now. reboot and see if that does the trick, then readjust settings to your tastes.
