Re: "OUT OF RANGE"
It is just that at the initial stage your screen resolution was a tad too high for the capacity of the monitor. As long as you retain the working resolution you should have no problem. To lower or increase, right click on any clear area of your desktop, click on properties, settings tab, adjust the Screen resolution to your preference as long as it is within the capacity of your monitor. Adjust soon as your monitor says out of range, click on escape and go back one step. click on apply and ok and this should hold till you manually change it again.
It's really of just the PC trying to give its best but the monitor was not up to it.
Good luck and hope this works for you. Post back how things are or should you need further information. Kind regards.

You need to put in the password that goes with the account you entered. If you enter a name of an existing account, you never guess the correct password and you can't get in.
First thing for every site or service with accounts is to setup an account. chose make account first. Then if you try to use a name that is already given, the system will tell you to chose another name.
Is it your Own Computer? If yes then follow this steps but remember this steps only works of there is a password in User account but not in Administrator account. Turn on the Computer, the place where it will ask the password there you Press CTRL+ALT+DELETE all together two times, you shuld press those key very fast, i mean once if you press those key then there shold not be time gape when you press next time. After doing that successfully then it'll show you a small window where it'll ask you user name and password, in place of user name just type Administrator and leave the password place blank and hit the enter. if there is no pass word in your administrator account then it should open up and you can go to control panel--user accounts--chose the user account which has the password and select remove password. Restart the computer and this time it'll not ask you for password.
IF there is a password in Administrator account then you need to find some password removing tools.
If XP press Ctrl+Alt+Delete together 3 times, Enter Administrator in the User Name section and then press enter.
If you are using windows Vista and 7 use your Windows Install disc(or a Bootable repair disk for Windows XP or if you just don't have an install disk ) click on repair my computer, chose the O/S and click next, click Command Prompt. Now Enter this Exactly:

at device manager I right click multimedia audio controller. the one with a question mark. a dialog box appeared. I selected update driver. then vista ask me: how do you want to search for driver software? I choose browse my computer. Then vista gave me two options. I chose let me pick from a list of device drivers from my computer. A dropdown appeared with a list. I browse through the dropdown. The first time I chose intel because the chipset is from intel. On the right column I chose intel (r) ac '97. It did not work.
I tried to run my support cd. Again, vista said something like compatibility issue.
Then from the drop down soundmax integrated digital audio appeared, i highligted it and click next then just follow the prompt.
Then vista install the driver. Now my computer has sound.
Ok, right click on the computer icon and choose properties, then click on advanced system settings, a system properties window will appear, choose the computer name tab and click on network ID, you can change the network ID to home or work. The computer may ask to restart so that the changes are made in the registry

If the password window has come for first time then don't enter any password. Leave the password window blank. In the user name enter Administrator and log on. If this does not help enter administrator or admin in password field. But this should be second option.
My suggestion is that you downgrade from Window Vista to Window XP as till date Windows Vista has lot of bugs relating to security issues.I myself have done that.
