Specs: Vista
I have windows vista. i have a admin account, and guest. i tried changing my resolution and made it to high for my monitor while logged in as admin. now it says out of range. however, it will let me sign in as guest and use the computer. only the admin account gives me this error. i have tried: safe mode, i have tried low resloution reboot, i have tried unplugging cords and starting comp, then plugging back in. When i plug my vga cable into my old pc monitor they both work fine. what do i got to do to get my monitor working again!!!? Please help.

Connect the old monitor and set the resolution back to whatever it was before.

I did, that has not worked either. When my original pc monitor is hooked up it is at the 800x600 resolution. When i take the vga and plug it back into my olevia tv monitor it immediately says "out of range".

✔ Best Answer
If all else fails maybe System Restore from the admin account might fix it.

System Restore (as opposed to Factory Restore) will retain all your own stuff. You just type System Restore in search and choose a date before you made the change. Sit back and wait until it is back to the desktop and settled down.

Hard to say why it won't go back - maybe I would see something if I was hands on.

You say you've tried safe mode, etc. but give no details. Did it not boot to safe mode at all? If it did, did you try making resolution changes then?

If it boots to safe mode using the TV monitor then change the resolution to whatever it is in safe mode and it should then boot that way next time in normal mode.

Sorry for lack of details. I just shut down my computer with old monitor. Plugged vga back into tv monitor. turned on computer, hit f8. selected safe mode. let me log in as admin. background stayed black. my resolution was set to minimum, 600x800. i changed it to the minimum my tv monitor could handle of 1024x768. then restarted. it let me log back in as admin, let me look at my computer screen for about 15-20 seconds, then the black screen and 'out of range' pops back up.

But you said in safe mode with the tv monitor attached the resolution was 800 x 600 and I believe the pre-desktop screens are at 800 x 600 also. So it must take that resolution ok. Try setting the resolution to 800 x 600 while in safe mode so it boots that way in normal mode. Once there you can try adjusting resolution to something more compatible with the tv monitor.

If that doesn't work, as previously suggested, it's probably best to do a system restore from before you first changed the resolution.

System restore seemed to have worked. So far so good, monitor is working on admin account and after doing a windows update the internet is running as normal. My office is back to looking good and running normal. THANKS for the help.
