Okay, guys. I stupidly fiddled about with ATI catalyst control centre and my monitor went blank and displayed 'out of range'.
i have rebooted many times and after the windows logo it says 'out of range'

i am in safe mode posting this so my monitor isnt broken.

i just cant get it to work normally.
what do i need to do to sort this thing out?

i have tried opening the catalyst control centre again but it said that a driver wasnt installed.

all help appriciated...thanks.

bobsalot.

Out of range typically is a frequency error I believe. There appears to be an issue in addressing the display because it is trying to output something which is not acceptable to the display perhaps?

Are you connecting with a vga or dvi cabble?

i changed the resolution with ati catalyst control, then tried to change it back...thats when the error occured. since then i can only start the computer in safe mode without getting the 'out of range' message.

i would assume its a vga cable but im not 100% sure.

thanks.

That's what I was going to suggest. For some reason, sometimes the digital mode will move from 60 to 59 or something else and can cause issues with regards to the range.

A vga input typically rectifies this till you re-modulate the frequency/res or whatever else was throwing things off.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
