Re: IBM Thinkvision Monitor Error
If you right click on an empty space on your desktop and click properties, your graphics adapter driver settings should appear, look in the settings and you will have the option to rotate the screen back to normal.

Some wide-screen monitors have a "rotate" option in the software that comes with the monitor -- you physically rotate the screen 90 degrees, and then Windows will rotate the entire "desktop" so that you now have an "extra-tall' screen, instead of an "extra-wide" screen.
I would try it with other PC, if it is still doing the same thing and you want to DIY repair, then please read below. Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague http://www.badcaps.net
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.
First place to chaeck will be power supply, the problem can also be caused by bad inverter circuits, bad lamps, see example of failed monitors due to bad caps, lamps, http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

Check the DVI connections on your computer and your monitor. It is possible that there is not a good connection. Do you have access to another working monitor? If you connect a different monitor, and that monitor comes up, it could be the DVI cable or a bad monitor itself. If neither monitor comes up it could be a bad video card or port, or the computer may not recgonize it under Properties, Display, then settings when you right-click on the monitor, if you are using it as a second monitor.
It's seems your new pc resolution settings, set to high...
Hook up to another monitor and go to settings to correct your
resolution to 1280x768 or less. That will fixed your problems.
