Windows 7: Out of range error please help!!!!

Out of range error please help!!!!

I've formatted a partition on my drive and installed it, but every time it boots now my monitors switch to a black screen with "out of range".
I'm not a pro or a novice, and realised it was to higher throughput for the monitor and hooked it up to my 32" hd tv in order to access the system.
Having been able to run windows update through 7 I assumed this would fix my problem.
Having put my system back on the oringal setup, it still displays this message so I wonder if any one can please shed some light on this please.
Thanks

James

That means that you have set the resolution set too high for your monitor. Try setting the resolution to something really low, like 800x600, then hooking up the monitor in focus. You can work up from there.

Is there a driver installed yet for monitor? How about a newer video driver? Check windows updates.

Change screen resolution and refresh rate, then try monitor again. Repeat until it works.

I have hooked it up to an HDTV as my previous post states and and connected it downstairs directly to the router.

I did not need to lower the resloution because of that.

Having it failed i can get into the system via safe mode but cannot normally.

It just says out of range but i can hear windows starting to the desktop.

Yes, that makes sense. Your HDTV can handle a higher resolution and refresh rate than your monitor can. Try turning the resolution and refresh rate down.

You may need to lower the resolution or change the refresh rate in order to get the monitor to work correctly - not to use it on the HDTV.

You may also need to switch out video driver in safe mode, and install the monitor driver.

I've set the rez to 1024x768 at 60Hz it was natively at 1300xsumthing..... which is HD format.

I really cannot figure out why it's still not working having saved the graphic settings and booted up again only to find it still saying out of range.

My monitors are both X19W LCD Wide screen says it supports max 1440x900 @ max horizontal freq 55.94Hz and Verti freq 59.89Hz

If thats any help???

Once im actually in windows 7 via hdtv i can set the res to 1024x768 but when i start the comp back up 2mins later it says out of range.
windows update seems to solve most peoples "out of range" error except mine.

How irritating!!!!!!!!!!!!

Try downloading the latest drivers for your card from the manufacturer. You will need to do this in Safe Mode.
