I put it in safe mode and did what u said to do but didnt work.
Did you do what i said above.
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)?
big fat kind
Great_Assassin if you are'nt going to co-operate with us then why bother to post a thread.
I asked you if you have done the follwing.
And you have got CRT monitor if it is big and fat. Does it look like THIS
Regards Jase :wave:
do i do all this in safe mode?
Well try it in normal mode first, if that doesn't work then try it in Safe mode.
The thing is I cant do it in normal. Thats why i want help cuz i cant do anything if i turn my computer on normal.
Do it in safe mode then.
Follow every step exactly.
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...
Note: Don't go too high, as this could damage your monitor.
