Re: I have a problem with my hp 1702 please help!!!!
This means that your screen settings are not compatible with the game. like 16 bit color to 32 bit color. set the screen settings so that you can play. Display properties would let u adjust these colors.

You'll need to switch the TV into Video mode. Most TV sets will have a button on the front panel labelled "input" or "tv/video," and pressing this button will cycle through the various inputs your TV has.
Alternatively, this button may be located on your remote control.
Rarely, no button exists, and video input is selected by changing the channel below channel 2; as if you were trying to select channel 1. This will select the video input on sets without a separate input selector button.
When do you see the grey box? When you are playing a game? If so, try changing the resolution on your screen through the Control Panel...personalization...the resolution scale. You may need a lower resolution in order for the game to be played. I used to get a box that said "signal out of range". It wouldn't go away until I lowered the resolution in order to play that particular game. You can always change it back to your original resolution. Did you have a message in the grey box.
No input signal is displayed on my computer screen means your monitors refresh rate has been set at too high a frequency
To fix this you need to start your p.c in safe mode(press f8 at start up)
On the desktop go to control panel>display properties>settings>advanced>monitors>th... change the refresh rate to the lowest ,normally 60hz, make sure the box is ticked.

Start your Windows in Safe Mode (pressing F8) during boot process and adjust your Display Settings to a lower resolution.... say 1024 x 768. Once fixed, you can play around again increasing the resolution a notch at a time. Fix ya!
Some monitors have low resolution, that if it doesn't support that resolution then you'll expect an "input signal out of range" message on screen. try to boot on "safe mode" if it works then you have to lower your screen resolution at "display properties" if not then the monitor has a defective data cable. ;)
Most commonly, this problem is caused by an incorrect refresh rate setting. LCD monitors typically DO NOT support refresh rates higher than 60hz - and this is no exception. Try running the game in "safe mode" if it has one. Adjusting the in-game video settings should solve the problem, just look for a screen refresh rate or any video-related setting with a number followed by "hz". Set it to 60, everything should be fine.
It could also be that at some point the game changes resolution (this frequently occurs if there is an in-game movie or cut-scene). In this case the resolution settings for the in-game movie might be at fault, check them if you can.
