The input out of range message will only appear after Windows has started to load. You need to invoke Safe Mode before Windows starts to load and F8 will do that if you catch it soon enough.

Start tapping F8 as soon as anything appears on the screen.

the only thing it appears is that same message.. so windows wont start to load. that message comes before when windows loads. so i try tapping f8 while i was turning it on but nothing happens.

Can you enter the system BIOS by pressing the appropriate key.
Which key you have to press, depends on the BIOS, that is running on your computer.

Maybe, you graphics card has died.
Ask a repair shop, whether they may try to change the graphics card and test, whether it works.

I am running into a similar problem. It happened after my old monitor died and I switched to an LCD. I tried two video cards (ATI All in Wonder, and a basic 3dfx). I can't get to the BIOS and I can't get to the safe mode either. Short of finding another monitor, which is hard to do these days, I have no idea what else to do.... Any suggestions?
