Specs: Windows XP
and so I am using a flat screen from our bedroom. And I plugged it in and it says out of range?
What does that mean? Should I try rebooting?

Out of range?
Your graphics settings are too high for the monitor.

Or the cable is not plugged in correctly.

Right mouse click anywhere on blank area of desktop wallpaper then select Properties from drop down box. From screen that appears select Settings tab. Then click on Advanced button near bottom - then select Monitor tab and change to a lower refresh rate in Monitor Settings. Usually 60hz for a flat panel. You will need to change back to old settings if you buy another CRT monitor. Screen may look a little distorted as flat panels usually have a "native resolution" different from a CRT monitor. e.g. 1027 x 768 or 1280 x 1024 etc - usually quoted in flat panel user manual. Settings tab (stage 2 above) lets you change screen resolution.

Reboot to safe mode and then change the resolution.

Yea OtheHill !

If out of range you don't get AnYthing on the monitor!
safe mode puts you in vga standard mode which should eliminate the out of range monitor message and then give the user access to change the video settings.
