I bought my son a 2nd hand computer for xmas which i saw working when i bought it, but its been stored until xmas day. when i set it up the monitor keeps coming up with out of range and switching off, then sometimes it works fine. Have I got a dodgy monitor or am i doing something wrong? Any advice would be gratefully received xxxxxxxxx

Are you sure the connectors are seated correctly ?

Did you get the same monitor that was with the "working system"?
If not then your display settings are wrong, though i am sure that windows normally detects and auto configures this during boot up.
Try a different monitor.

Pasper2 - is that the little screw bits that tighten to hold the wire in?

LCD screen 15" if that helps???

your Operating System sets the resolution too high for the monitor.... e.g. yoru monitor is a 1200x800 but the system tell it to display 1600x1200

In XP go to Start - Control Panel - Display - Setting and see whats the Screen Resolution is. Lower it until it is accepted by the monitor and the Out of Range sugn doenot come out...

see also if you have the correct driver installed for the monitor

set it to 800x600 in display settings, that usually works on every monitor.
then when you have done that set your "display type" to 15" in device manager.

press f8 when the machine boots up to try and get to the boot menu and select safe mode. If it loads then search for display resolution and drop it to the minimum. When you restart it should be ok.

you dont have to do it in safe mode IMO... unless the monitor totally hang/showing out of range all the time

Not necessarily just the resolution. Go into the Display properties and set the refresh rate to 60Hz also.

How do you suppose the they do it if they don't go to safemode? Seeing as though they can't see the screen if they let it boot normally?

I'm interested in your method.
