Possible reasons for this is a defective video card or the monitor itself or Windows installation failure. First, isolate the problem by swapping a working monitor to your system and check if the problem still persists. If it still doesn't work, then video card is the culprit. Some defective video cards function only on the lower resolution settings, which is the default resolution in the installation process of Windows XP. When the installation is finished, boot loader set the user interface to a much higher resolution which the defective video card is incapable of.

To further verify this, try pressing F8 and start Windows XP in a Safe Mode. If it boots properly, then Windows XP is incapable of going across the normal mode.

My samsung syncMaster 753s moniter does not support resolution of xp what i do further


Hi there,

Your monitor can easily support Windows XP resolutions. The problem almost certainly lies in your video settings. You need to lower your screen resolution and/or refresh rate.
If you can not start Windows due to this problem, you will have to start Windows in VGA compatibility mode. Follow these steps:
  1. When your PC starts up, press F8 a few times
  2. This will bring up a menu whereby you can select VGA mode from the list
  3. Once you are logged into Windows, right click anywhere on the desktop & select "properties"
  4. Then go to display settings & select a resolution of 1024 X 768.
  5. Go to advanced settings and make sure your refresh rate is no more than 70 to 75Mhz
  6. Restart Windows normally & your display should be correct.
Let me know if you have any further questions.

Best wishes,
Graemevm

Is there any software by which i can work on my computer when i am away from my home ?


Hello,you can work with your pc even away from it without a software.. In Windows, Remote Desktop allows you to access your computer from a remote location. To enable Remote Desktop, you must have administrative rights on the computer you want to use as the host (i.e., the computer to which you will connect from a remote location), which must be running one of the following versions of Windows: Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise, or Ultimate Windows Vista Business, Enterprise, or Ultimate Windows XP Professional The Remote Desktop Connection client software (for the computer from which you want to connect) is installed by default on all computers running Windows 7, Vista, or XP. Enable the Remote Desktop feature on your host computer From the Start menu, select Control Panel (or Settings, and then Control Panel). Double-click System. In Windows 7 and Vista, click Remote settings. In the "Remote Desktop" section, select one of the two options to allow connections from other computers. In Windows XP, select the Remote tab. Select Allow users to connect remotely to this computer. To choose which users will have remote access, in 7 and Vista, click Select Users... or in XP, click Select Remote Users... . Typically, all administrators of the computer will have access by default. Each user must have a password before you can allow remote access. When you are finished, click OK. Your computer will now be able to accept incoming Remote Desktop connections. Open a connection If you have configured your computer to accept remote connections, to establish a Remote Desktop connection: Depending upon your network configuration and system requirements, you may first have to establish a VPN connection to your host computer's network. From the Start menu, select Programs or All Programs. Select Accessories, and then Remote Desktop Connection. In the space next to "Computer:", type the name or IP address for your host computer. Click Connect. Note: If you would like to adjust any of your connection settings such as screen size, login information, availability of local hard drives and printers, or keyboard and sound behavior, click Options before clicking Connect. In the Log On to Windows dialog box, type your username, password, and domain (if required). Click OK. Once you are connected, you can use your remote computer as if you were sitting in front of it. When you are finished, in the Remote Desktop Connection window, select Start, then Shut Down. In the Shut Down Windows dialog box, from the drop-down menu, select Log Off username, where username is your username on the remote computer. Click OK. goodluck!don't forget to rate,thanks'''''****

If your on XP you can right click on the empty desktop and go to properties, Under the settings tab you will find options for screen resolutions. If your on Vista or 7 you right click on empty desktop space and go to screen resolution, There again you will easily find your settings for your screen resolution. Click apply and then click OK after that lay back and enjoy your screens clarity.

Intstalled starlogic moniter to PC and got error message


Hi,
the "Out of Range" message usually appears when the video card is putting out a video resolution or frequency that the monitor isn't able to handle. You should reboot your computer and BEFORE the Windows screen shows up, press the F8 button once every half-second. THis will bring up the boot menu for Windows. Select "Enable VGA Mode" and press enter. THis will load Windows in VGA mode where the screen resolution will be 800x600 @ 60Hz. Any modern monitor is able to use this. Once you log into Windows with the basic video settings, you can go into the Display properties within Windows and bump up your resolution and frequency as needed.

How do i get out of hibernate mode and get into standby


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.
  1. Click Start, then Control Panel, and then double-click Power Options.
  2. 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.
  3. Click OK to close the Power Options dialog box.
  4. 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.

Computer not recognizing moniter


Resolution set too high for display.

Attach TUBE monitor, Start Windows, change resolution to 1024x768 (MAX) and then hit APPLY/OK.

Also check refresh rate, it is listed in hertz (hz) in advanced settings. Should be 70-72khz not faster than either.

Shut down PC, Connect LCD, you should have a decent picture.

Have you checked the computer bios?

 

In case an item was changed in the BIOS, such as the primary display device setting, use the following steps to reset the BIOS back to its default configuration:
  1. Turn on the computer and press the keyboard key that enters the BIOS Setup screen key when the keyboard light comes on. The key to enter the BIOS should be one of the following:
    • HP and Compaq desktop computers that came with Windows Vista, press F10 .
    • For HP Pavilions desktop computers that came with Windows XP or previous versions of Windows, press F1 .
    • Compaq Presario desktop computers built after 2002, press F1 .
    • Compaq Presario desktop computers built prior to 2002, press F10 .
  2. Wait 5 seconds.
  3. Press the F5 key to restore the default settings of the BIOS.
  4. Press Enter to accept the change and wait five seconds.
  5. Press the F10 and then the Enter key to save the changes and exit from the BIOS.
  6. The monitor should now display the first screens received from the computer (the logo screens). If not, find and download the latest BIOS update if one is available for your computer.
  7. If a BIOS update was not available or the monitor is still blank, continue to the next step

Reseating loose internal components

If the PC case was recently serviced or moved, a card, cable, memory module, or processor may have become loose. When this happens, the PC might make a beeping sound when turned on. Use the following steps to check for loose components: WARNING: The edges of metal panels can cut skin. Be careful not to slide skin along any interior metal edge of the computer. CAUTION: This product contains components that can be damaged by electrostatic discharge (ESD). To reduce the chance of ESD damage, work over a non-carpeted floor, use a static dissipative work surface (like a conductive foam pad), and wear an ESD wrist strap connected to a grounded surface.
  1. Unplug all cables except for the power. Write down each cable location if you do not already know where it connects.
  2. With the power cable removed press the Power button on the front of the PC for 5 seconds.
  3. Remove the screw(s) that retain the panel or cover from the rear of the PC. c00371492.jpg
  4. Slide the side panel off from the rear of the PC. c00371493.gif
  5. Gently press down on the outside edges of cards and memory modules that are inserted into the motherboard to better seat them. Do not press too hard.
  6. Gently press down on the connectors of the flat ribbon cables to seat them.
  7. Replace the side panel and screw(s), reconnect the PC cables, and turn on the PC on.
  8. If the monitor still displays a black screen, the video hardware may be faulty and needs to be replaced or serviced. If the monitor displays the first startup screen but does not display Windows, continue to the next step.

Try this and if it doesnt work. please post again.
