You need to start the computer in VGA mode. To do that, turn on the computer. Keep pressing the F8 key every second until a boot menu appears. Select enable VGA mode. The computer will boot to a 640 x 480 resolution. From there you can go to your graphics properties and select a more suitable resolution for your monitor.

How can I fix an "Out of Range" display?


Hi,
Please reduce display resolution of computer/ laptop to solve "out of range" error because laptop is producing high resolution video signal and monitor hardware is unable to show that much higher display resolution so causing that error message.
Let me know what Windows version (XP, Vista, 7) is running in laptop to provide you more info or check Display Properties in control panel and change it to lower resolution to get picture in monitor.
Thanks.

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...

IT IS NOT HARDWARE PROBLEM
Change screen resolution

Screen resolution refers to the clarity of the text and images on your screen. At higher resolutions, items appear sharper. They also appear smaller, so more items fit on the screen. At lower resolutions, fewer items fit on the screen, but they are larger and easier to see. At very low resolutions, however, images might have jagged edges.

For example, 640 × 480 is a lower screen resolution, and 1600 × 1200 is a higher one. CRT monitors generally display a resolution of 800 × 600 or 1024 × 768. LCD monitors can better support the higher resolutions. Whether you can increase your screen resolution depends on the size and capability of your monitor and the type of video card you have.

2aca9658-0ee7-4b8d-a582-cac335550f26.pngText is larger and easier to read at low screen resolutions, but images are blocky and fewer items fit on the screen

  1. Open Display Settings by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33.png, clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, clicking Personalization, and then clicking Display Settings.

  2. Under Resolution, move the slider to the resolution you want, and then click Apply.

Computer monitor out of range is being flashed on screen


Monitor is not recognizing the resolution settings that are currently set on the computer.
It is probably sett too high.
You will have to lower the computer resolution.
If it is a laptop, you should be able to do this using the laptops screen.
If it is a desktop computer, you either have to use a different screen to reset the resolution.
or
Sometimes restarting the computer while the screen is on will reset the video.
If that doesn't work, try starting the computer in safe mode by tapping the F8 key while it is being started. This will keep the resolution low enough to see it on the monitor and you can adjust the resolution there in the display properties

Samsung syncmaster 913v gives message ' not optimum mode"


The 913V has a native resolution of 1280x1024. If you use a higher resolution than that, you'll get slightly blurry text. If you use a lower resolution, then images will be slightly choppy around the edges.

To get rid of the message, set your resolution to 1280x1024.

In Windows XP, you do this by right-clicking on the background (desktop) and selecting "Properties" to bring up the display properties.
Select the tab marked "Settings" and look for a "Screen Resolution" slider. Move that slider to the right until it displays "1280x1024" and hit "OK"

Out of range


When your wxternal monitor says "Out of Range" it may mean that your resolution settings on your computer are set too high.

One way to diagnose and solve this is to reboot your machine.

During bootup press the F8 button to enter Safe Mode.

When prompted, select Safe Mode.

Your machine will then boot up with the mnimum amount of drivers required to run the Windows operating system.

Once you have loggin into your computer, right-click on the Desktop and select Properties.

The Display Prpoerties window will pop up. Select the Settings tab.

Slide the idicator to 1024x768 and hit Apply, then Ok.

Restart your computer and your monitory should display your computer screen.

Please classify this with the appropriate computer brand and model.

Resolution notice it says the best picture quality change to resalition to 1024x768 1 exit 2 disable how do i get rid of it


LCD monitors have what is called a native resolution. This is what the actual/physical display resolution is. When you try to display outside of this then you get the error. The easiest way to get rid of this is to set you video display resolution to the native monitor resolution.

If you look at the message it is saying if you hit 2 it will disable the error. To change the resolution in windows you can just right click anywhere on the desktop that is empty. This brings up the display properties. Go to the settings tab. At the lower left is a slider. Just slide it to show the desired display size in your case try the 1024x768 setting then hit apply. The screen will change and a nother window should pop up and ask if you want to keep the settings. If you take too long or say no it just resets to the prior settings. You can change it at any time.

1024x768 is a good setting it is high enough that the display is clean and sharp. And most web pages are designed around this size. Try it not only to get rid of the error but also to see what everything looks like. You can always change it back.

I plugged my monitor into another computer i have and the start up screen pops up but then it goes black and says " input not supported"


You need to set the video output of the PC to the native resolution of your monitor: 1440 x 900 @60Hz. You are getting the meaasage because the resolution is too high for the monitor to display.

Tiny Monitor


Out of frequency means your video card is trying to display a resolution beyond the capability of you monitor. Typically it is really a combination of too high a resolution and too many colors. Typically a 19? CRT will be set to display at a screen resolution of 1024 x 1024 with the color quality at 32 bit or *true* color. Personal preferences differ and you can set it lower or higher, depending on the capabilities of the monitor. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this post.
