  1. I have a NEC MultiSync LCD1565 Flat Screen Monitor. Every once in a while I'll Download a game demo, when I go to play the monitor says Out of range. Sometimes I can fix this if the game has a settings prior to lgame load feature. this has become rather frustrating.

    Current settings:
    1024x768 32 bit true color 60MHZ
    I have most recent drivers loaded for both
    monitor and video card.
    GeForce FX5600 Ultra 128MB Video Card

    Any suggestions?
    BTW I've tried changing the res on my monitor from advanced settings. the only res that works with out error is 1024x768

    I managed to fix this by playing around with the advanced settings for referance to anyone who might be experiencing the same thing:
    start-settings-control panel-display-settings tab-advanced-Geforce tab-on left select change resolution-advanced timing-un check interlace mode.
    seems to be working fine! No more "out of range"

    That's nice of you to post back with what you did. I wish more people would do that.

    Sorry no one fixed your problem, but to be honest, if you can fix your problem on your own, that's far, far better.

    Maybe next time someone here will have the answer.
