Cannot remove "input signal out of range"

When playing a game, there is a box in the middle of the screen that will not go away and it says "input signal out of range". I have tried to go to the menu and change the input settings - it will not change from "analog". Is that the setting it is supposed to be on all the time? How can I remove this annoying box?

    I have a smaller screen, Hanns-g HW173D, with exactly the same issue. It is OK for a while and then the box appears and we have to shut off the computer to get it to go a way.

Input signal out of range would normally indicate the the screen resoloution is either too high or too low for the monitor to display properly.

is this on just one game? which version of windows do you use?

    Mine was caused by too high of a refresh rate. Control Panel>Appearance and Themes>Display>Settings>Advanced>Monitor and adjust the screen refresh rate to a lower setting.

If using windows 7 try a right click on the desktop, then screen resolution and then detect. That worked for me.

"Input signal out of range"

usually points to the resolution settings of the graphics card not matching the monitor resolution settings. Reboot to safe mode on the computer and set the resolution to a lower one. A good starting point would be 1280 x 960 at high res. See if that works

When I attempt to play a video game from my computer, a message pops up in the middle of the screen that says "input signal out of range." the game functions normally, but the message stays in...

It is because the game want to feed the video resolution that is higher than the monitor can support.

You need to lower your PC video resoltion to the native resolution of this monitor, but your game may not display properly.

Signal outof range

  • Make sure the pins on the video cable are not bent or damaged.
  • Make sure there are no extension cables or switch boxes attached to the monitor.
  • Verify that you have the proper drivers installed for the video card.
  • Verify the problem at all possible resolutions and refresh rates.
  • Make sure the refresh rate does not exceed maximum value for any resolution.
  • Test the monitor on a different computer.
  • Contrast is recommended to be set at a higher range while the brightness should be set at middle range. This helps to increase the text clarity while reducing the bright background.
  • If your monitor is equipped with moire control, adjusting this may improve the clarity of the text. Moire is a wavy distortion pattern caused by interference between the dot pitch of the CRT and the picture signal. The pattern may vary depending on the screen amplitude, contrast, brightness, and other characteristics of the input signal.
  • Monitor's performance may be affected by the Earth's magnetic field. Try rotating the monitor to different directions to improve misconvergence.
  • Most video cards offer a software utility that changes the frequencies and sync polarities for all resolutions. If the setup does not match with the monitor's characteristics, an incorrect signal may be displayed on the screen. Sometimes, the image may also appear blurry.

    Inout signal out of range Answer Failed: retry

    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.

    I have a Hannspree 25 lcd monitor and I can't get rid of the "input signal out of range" box in the middle of the screen

    the monitor is not properly connected to the back of the PC box, check the cable that goes from the monitor to the PC box, (first unplug the PC/monitors from the power socket)
    check if the cable is loose from the monitor jack point on the back of the PC box, remove it and blow air in it may be some dust is there.
    fix it back and tighten the two screwes with a screw driver.
    power it back ON

    I have a problem with my hp 1702 please help!!!!

    this means that your screen settings are not compatible with the game. like 16 bit color to 32 bit color. set the screen settings so that you can play. Display properties would let u adjust these colors.

    some how your screen resolution has changed above or below what your monitor can display. you need to boot your computer using another monitor that can work with the resolution your computer has switched to(i used a spare crt monitor when it happened to me) change your resolution in display properties to a normal level like 1027x768, and while the computer is on swap the monitor cables to verify the lcd is working.
    It is perfectly safe to unplug the video cable and plug it back in while the computer is turnned on.

    Monitor out of range

    Most commonly, this problem is caused by an incorrect refresh rate setting. LCD monitors typically DO NOT support refresh rates higher than 60hz - and this is no exception. Try running the game in "safe mode" if it has one. Adjusting the in-game video settings should solve the problem, just look for a screen refresh rate or any video-related setting with a number followed by "hz". Set it to 60, everything should be fine.

    It could also be that at some point the game changes resolution (this frequently occurs if there is an in-game movie or cut-scene). In this case the resolution settings for the in-game movie might be at fault, check them if you can.

    Input Not Supported?

    Try changing the resolution in the game. If that doesn't work change the resolution in 'Control Panel' under 'Display'
