    If you can't see anything how do you expect to fix this without changing your monitor with one that you know works. It would be an easy task, to grab your case and carry it to a friends house. If another monitor works you know your monitor is bad. If it doesn't work, or you get the same "Out Of Range" message your video card is bad

    have you tried running off onboard graphics, if you have them? remember to enable them in your bios again though otherwise it won't work

    What kind of monitor is it? LCD (flat skinny screen) or CRT (big/fat like an old TV)?

    So after I set a refresh rate in override, do I exit and restart my computer normally?

    CRT Monitors (Big and fat) are not that sensitive to refresh rates, and because it is a CRT monitor, it may be getting old. LCD's run a vertical refresh rate of 60Hz + or -... CRT monitors can run 72Hz to 85Hz or higher depending on price and quality

    Yes that is what you do

    Yes. And just see if the display message has gone after when you boot up in normal mode.

    I usually put my refresh rate in 60 so I typed in 60 and it didn't work so would it still work if I went any higher?

    Yes, go up to 72 or 75Hz...

    yes.

    Note: Don't go too high, as this could damage your monitor.
