Re: blurred pictures on monitor
The problem is not the monitor, it is the display adapter (Video card) of your system needs a valid Vista driver. (NVidia, ATI and Intel are the 3 largest Graphic card manufacturers) Monitor drivers are almost never needed except on some advanced large LCDs.
You said up upgraded to Vista, did you use a Vista upgrade DVD or just perform a clean installation of Vista? Have you installed Vista Chipset drivers? The chipset and Graphics drivres may not be native to Vista, you may need to install them.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

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.
For best pictures, you need to set your PC video resolution to the native resolution of this monitor, which is 1280x1024 @60Hz. Try that first before opening up the monitor to look for bad components.

Try these 2 steps if they don't work get back to me :)
Step 1. Connect the video cable and turn on the computer. What happens?
the monitor screen remains blank (no startup screens or onscreen
display messages), the monitor must be connected to another computer
using a different cable to determine if the monitor is bad. Skip to the
Step to connect the monitor to another computer.
If the monitor is capable of displaying boot screens but is unable to
display Windows, use the following steps to set the computer to a
the native display resolution for your monitor in the User Manual or in
the product specifications for the monitor model. If you are unable to
find the native display resolution for your monitor model, temporarily
use 1024x768 for troubleshooting purposes.
Turn on the computer and press the
key repeatedly when the first startup screen appears.
If you are using Windows Vista, select
Enable low resolution video (640 x 480)
, and wait until Windows opens. To set display settings that match the monitor, use the steps in the HP support document,
Changing Display Settings, Background Image, and Screen Saver in Windows Vista
If you are using Windows XP, select
Enable VGA Mode
, and wait until Windows opens. Continue using these steps to set display resolution.
If you are using Windows 98 or ME, select
and perform the following steps to enter into a standard VGA mode:

and restart the computer.
After Windows opens, click
, and then click
In the Open field type
button, and remove the checkmark next to
VGA 640 x 480 x 16
. Do NOT restart the computer.
After Windows opens, right-click on an open area of the desktop and select
(Windows XP, 98/Me) or
In Windows Vista, Scroll down and click
In Windows XP, 98, or Me, click the
In Windows Vista, select the native display resolution size using the Resolution slider. Set Colors to
Highest (32 bit)
In Windows XP, select the native display resolution size using the Screen resolution slider. Set Color Quality to

In Windows 98 or Me, select the native display resolution size using the Screen Area slider. Set Colors to
after you have made your adjustment.
The screen should blank out temporarily and come back.
If you are satisfied with the new display settings, click
on the Monitor Settings windows. If you are not satisfied or if the
screen just goes black, wait: Windows sets the screen back to the way
it was before. Try another setting until you find a display
configuration that is compatible with the monitor and meets your needs.
the native resolution is not available, download and install updated
video driver software for your computer. Updating the video driver
software can add more resolutions (graphics modes).
Restart the computer. The monitor should now display a full screen image in high quality. You are done.
Step 2: Connect to another monitor
a different cable, connect the monitor to another computer that has
video. Turn on the monitor and the newly connected computer. What
the monitor works, the video hardware on the original computer is
likely to be the source of the problems. You can try connecting the
original computer to another monitor that works to update its video
If the monitor remains blank, repair or replace the monitor.
Try changing the resolution to 1440x900. This is the ideal resolution for this monitor. To change the resolution: Right click on an empty space on your Windows desktop. Choose Properties (XP) or Personalize (Vista) Choose the Settings tab (XP) or Display Settings (Vista). Slide the resolution slider to 1440x900, then click apply. If asked whether you want to keep this setting, choose yes/ok.
Note: Not all video cards support this resolution. Updating your video card's (not monitor's) driver may add it.
Good morning! It sounds like your LCD display is bad and needs replaced. You can verify this by hooking up an external monitor. If the display is OK on that, then you probably need to go shopping for a new (or gently used) LCD assembly.
