Question about Dell P780 17" CRT Monitor
When using Microsoft Word, the computer freezes and the warning box states that the monitor is working out of range. How do I correct this problem.
When booting up press F8, select start in VGA mode. Then itgave me the option to fix the resolution and it worked.

It probabily happens after you change the settings of display in control panel (windows), if so restart the machine and press function key <F8> after memory test and you shoud get to the startup menu, choose VGA mode and undo the changes in display that you have made.

A few options: 1. Video card is dying, Swap it out, see what happens. 2. The video card has decided to set a resolution or refresh rate that exceeds the monitor spec. 3. You can try loading a proper driver for the monitor and see if that helps. 4. The problem sometimes happens when running 3D games. I usually solve it by selecting *Adapter Default* in advanced display properties (which looks crap) and the upping the resolution to 85Hz I then run the DirectX utility and test this using AGP/Direct3D rendering (if I'm going to have the Out of Range/Adjust Timing Frequency it happens when I run these tests). Anyhow try the above and make sure you've tried to select the correct monitor. Good luck

Unplug the power cord to the Monitor for about 10 seconds and they plug the Monitor back into its outlet, and try turning the Monitor on and see what happens.

Your monitor cannot handle the video card's resolution. I had the exact same problem and I was using a 10-year old monitor. Once I switched the monitor out with a new one, the error message went away!

Replace video card, or have it serviced if you like.

Try reinstallign Word, it seems your normal.dot has incorrect settings. What happens if you open a word file without opening word first? Does word work normally? Than clear the document and save it as normal.dot in your my documents folder.
