While my PC is booting up and during the BIOS phase, my monitor shows Out of Range until Microsoft Windows starts loading. Everything is working properly after that with the monitor. That error message appears to be some sort of monitor-specific generated error message too.
I know my monitor doesn't support high resolutions, but this should not be the problem.
I'm not 100% sure when this started happening, but I know I booted into Linux and got all of the boot messages on my screen. But now nothing until I get into windows.
0Wow, that's weird man! Never seen that before. Especially strange as you'd expect the BIOS to be low resolution rather than high! Only things that spring to mind are obvious: Video card problem or maybe try and flash the BIOS? I'd try the monitor on another PC to rule that out (maybe it's on its way out) Try and reset the monitor if it has user settings that can be saved. If you boot into DOS does that work? Not sure exactly what that would tell you though, but if you can't then you might have problems flashing the BIOS if you felt that would help. Scratching my head otherwise though! S — DuckIT
0You're telling me! I can't see how the graphics card is the problem, as I said the gfx works fine once it is loaded. I don't see why it would not display in 640x480px 😕 um, could I reset the mobo back to factory defaults using the jumpers? I'm not too hot on hardware, to be honest. Regarding the monitoring being on its way out, that sounds about right - if I remember correctly the warranty ran out at the end of April 🙄 — rtm223
0Yeah, they normally have a CMOS reset on them where you change a jumper position, reboot and wait for it to bleep or something then shut it down and put the jumper back how it was. Try looking in the manual or the website for the board or post details here and I'll see if I can see it. Regarding the warranty, I swear they build timers in these days so they break when it's a month out of warranty! It's a conspiracy! 😱 S — DuckIT
0Got the same problem over here. Dis anyone find a solution? — lab
