I am an experienced user on my 8th PCand have just purchased a MATROX TripleHead2Go Digital Edition box to enable me run three screens off my nVidia 8800GTX Grahics card when gaming and flight simming. I am using a mixture of CRT and digital monitors which the MATROX supports. My taxan 17" on the left, a MIRAI 22" wide screen digital flat screen in the centre (my best display) and a DEll 19" CRT on the right. My OS is VISTA Ultimate Edition and I am using quad-core CPU with 4 GB RAM.
All 3 monitors power up OK and show the BIOS start up logo across all 3 screens, so I know all are working correctly and in cocert. However, when windows opens I get it only across the centre and right screens and an "Out of range" error on the Taxan.
I am assuming that the resolution of the triple display is currently set too high for the TAXAN to handle and if I simply reduce the resolution it should work. Is this correct?

It shows out of range because the PC is sending out the video signal that is higher than the monitor can display, you need to set the PC video resolution to the native resolution: 1024 x 768 @60Hz. You can reboot the PC into save mode (hitting F8 key while booting up) then set the resolution to 640 x 480 (try 1024 x 768 if it allows you to do so), reboot and reset the resoltion to 1024 x 768 @60Hz.
To get the computer back up again and out of hibernation you should just hold the power button down until it shuts off completely. Some laptops won’t shut off even if you do this. When this happens you have to take the battery out to get it to turn off. Make sure it is not plugged into the wall when you do this otherwise it wont work.
Also the following may be of interest. You must be logged on as an administrator or member of either the Administrators or Power Users group in order to successfully complete this procedure. If your computer is connected to a network, the forced network policy settings may prevent you from completing this procedure. In this case please consult your Network Administrator.
Click Start, then Control Panel, and then double-click Power Options.
Click the Hibernate tab, and then select the Enable hibernate support check box. If the Hibernate tab is not available, your computer does not support this feature.
Click OK to close the Power Options dialog box.
Click Start, and then click Shut Down then select Hibernate. If you are using Windows XP Home Edition, or Windows XP Professional with Fast User Switching turned on, the Shut Down menu will present the options to Stand By, Turn Off, or Restart your computer. Hold down the Shift key, and the Stand By button will change to Hibernate.
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.

I can’t find where the AC power cord plugs in on the back of the monitor.Answer
There are two places where the AC connector could be found.
1. Look at the back of the monitor right next to the signal cable connection.
2. If the signal cable does not detach from the monitor, follow the signal cable to the end, and you will see the 15 pin D-Sub connector (blue connector). There you will find a small hole with a pin inside (in between the two notches).
