    Until recently, I was always able to adjust my monitor's screen resolution. Now whenever I try to adjust it to 2048 by 1536 pixels (the most resolution), I get an error message that says:

    OUT OF FREQUENCY

    HF: 95.4 kHz
    VF: 60.0 Hz

    OPERATING FREQUENCY

    HF: 30-70 kHz
    VF: 50-160 Hz

    What does all this mean? Why can't I do something simple like set my screen resolution?

    Help would be appreciated... thanks.

    That's a pretty high resolution. Sometimes resolutions are listed that a monitor doesn't support. Where you able to set it there before?

    'pretty high' is an understatement. You may have damaged your monitor or you video card running it at that resolutoin.

    What is your video card make, model, graphics processor, and onboard ram?

    What is your monitor type and model number?

    There is a limit to the rez you can run any monitor at without damaging it in the long run. You may have just fried that monitors ability to run at that rez.
