Specs: windows XP, 1.61 ghz 248mb


I am trying to change the screen resolution to 1280x1024-60hz but when I hit apply it blacks out and then a white box with input signal out of range pops up. What can I do? Thanks

When I try to change the settings screen resolution it says input signal out of range. I need to change the screen resolution to 1280x1024-60hz but it will not let me?

What is the make / model of your monitor?
Also what is the make / model of your video adapter?

Thanks for any input.

Josh,

Monitor is an HP L1706.

I am not sure about the video adapter?
How can I find out?

As you can probably tell I am not that knowledgable about computers.

Thanks

"Out of Range" means that your setting is incorrect for the "Screen Refresh Rate" your monitor can handle.

1.In the Display Properties dialog box, click the Settings tab.
2.Click the Advanced button.
3.Click the Monitor tab,
Change Screen Refresh Rate to maybe 70 or 72 Hertz.

Chuck, if the monitor can't handle 60Hz, it won't handle 70+Hz

According to HP's support site your monitor supports:
Maximum Graphic Resolution 1280 x 1024 (60 Hz)

If you go to Start>right click 'My Computer'>Properties>hardware tab>device manager>display adapters
That will tell you what video card you have. Post what it is and we'll see if it supports that resolution, and if it does, update the driver.

Thanks for any input.

okay. The only thing that mentioned adapters was Network adapters. When I clicked on that it says: SiS 900-Based PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter?

Thanks for everyones advice.

That is your network card.
Display Adapters comes right after Disk Drives. Unless you dont have a driver for your video card, then it would be under other or there would be a default driver loaded. If you provide the make/model of the PC I can find the display adapter and link for driver for you.

Thanks for any input.

The model of you computer is usually on the outside of your tower.

In Device Manager under Disk Drives, what do you see?

Thanks for any input.

Hey Josh,

It is 2:31 am Monday morning and when the desk top came up it was tiny and so when I went to check the screen resolution setting it was on the highest and when I tried to change it to what I needed IT WORKED! I do not know what happened but I just wanted to thank you for your time and input.

Thank You,

Laura
