After you get into windows, click on 'Start','Settings','Control Panel'. Then double click 'Display'. Click on 'Monitor'. Where is says, 'Refresh Rate'. Click on the little black arrow next to option box and select '75 hertz'. Click on 'Apply' at the bottom and then click 'OK'. If that doesn't help, you'll need to get into your monitor settings ( on the monitor itself) and find the refresh and change it to 75 hertz. Hope this helps.

I set the resolution far too high by mistake on my Gateway FPD1960 TFT LCD monitor. Not the screen shows "Frequency out of range". The side controls on the monitor do not respond. Please help,if you can.

Firstly try turning everything off and disconnecting from the mains. Leave for a few minutes and then turn them back on again. This should set the monitor back to default setting, and also the computer.
If this doesn't work, try connecting the computer to a different monitor and using the "display properties" to set the display card to a resolution that you know the Gateway monitor will accept eg probably 1024 x 768. Then reconnect the computer to the Gateway monitor. This should work as the computer usually sets the monitor resolution.
If this doesn't work the only other option I can think of is to use the buttons on the monitor to get into the onscreen menu, which should be resolution independent and using the menu to change the resolution.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya

"Frequency is out of range"

Most likely your PC or laptop is currently set to a display resolution that is too high for the projector or is one that it cannot handle. Try setting your computer display to 640 x 480 or 800 x 600 and see if you can get the projector to work. If it does, then you can figure out the maximum display resolution you can use. Also consult your projector documentation for supported resolution modes.

Please help.. my monitor has no display and my don't even beep. the LED in the monitor turns back to orange after few seconds. cpu, disk drives and ram are working..

This is one of the serious problem that arises because if you set your monitor with a high resolution with high frequency, then the monitor doesn't display anything as it's frequency is out of the rang or limit of the monitor's actual resolution capacity. Each monitor will have a limit of max frequency that is said to be the Refresh rate (for each and every resolution setting the display is refreshed.) When high resolution is set with high frequency that is not supported by the monitor, it then display a message like "frequency out of range". If you press ESC key within the few seconds of this setting, it will revert back to its initial resolution. But if you continued with the setting of same High resolution with High frequency, the monitor is not going to display anything because its frequency is out of the range. Most of old monitors like CRT's etc doesn't support 1024×768 at a refresh rate greater than 60Hz.

Hello I can't get anything on my screen except

Your PC is putting too high resolution for he VL1918 to display.
You need to set your PC video out put to the native resolution of the VL1918, which is 1280x1024 @60Hz.
You will have to hook up your old monitor (crt type?) and set the new resolution.
Or boot up in safe mode (hit f8 during boot up), and set the resolution to 640 x 480, reboot into regular mode, then rest the resolution to 1280x1024 260Hz.
Also watch out for bad caps in this monitor:

When i turn it on it says out of range and i have a black screen

Hi, The reason behind the out of range (frequency of monitor) because the video display adapter is trying to set resolution more than what the monitor (screen) is capable of. In this case, try to boot your computer in Safe Mode using F8 function key while starting your computer. Once you are in safe mode, try to decrease the resolution of monitor to the lowest resolution level and apply the settings. Now try to boot computer in normal mode once again, you will get the settings which you have applied in safe mode. Adjust the screen resolution accordingly till the settings work with the monitor (screen).

Have blank screen with box in middle Analog out of range 62.9kHz / 120Hz

whatever you are trying to attach to the tv is set to the wrong frequency. If it is a computer you need to change the video settings by attaching a known working monitor and selecting another resolution. You will have to keep trying if the new resolution doesnt work. trial and error is your only option here. it will work when you have a system that displays within that frequency and in a supported resolution.


Frequency out of range 11khz/ 119khz message

The PC is sending out the resolution that is too high for the monitor to handle, you need to set the resolution of the PC to be the native resolution of the monitor and set the refesh rate to be at 60Hz.

Out of range message

This is caused by a resolution and/or refresh frequency setting in your computer's display properties that exceeds the values supported by the monitor.
Find out the optimum (native) resolution of your monitor (in case of AMV 17V5 it will be 1280x1024 pixels), and supported refresh frequency (usually 60Hz for LCD monitors), and set your display properties to these values.

AOC 771S monitor always appear "not support out of range even if i already set my resolution to lowest.

the lowest resolution is not always supported. by the range maybe referring to the frequency. change that, that should work. if you are not sure, look at your monitors manual, it will tell you resolution as well as frequency optimal settings
