  1. When my computer boots it puts "out of range" on my monitor but when the OS starts it goes away and windows starts normally.
    i can't get into the BIOS menu or anything because its just a black screen.
    My OS boots properly...

    Any ideas?

    OK - so you have what? An LCD, CRT, pool of electrified water?

    Can you try an alternate monitor in other words.

    Have you tried pressing the key needed to enter bios anyway just to see?

    On my Asus with DVI to an LCD, I get 'no signal' and then 'input not supported' until near the end of the bios post BUT if I press 'del' right off the bat after pressing the power button I will get into bios.

    i have tried that and it's the same, It says "No signal input" then goes black screen, untill it loads the OS then works fine.
