    Okay, I'm totally stumped on this. It started few weeks ago, when every morning that I would turn on my computer my monitor would display a signal saying "frequency out of range" I would then manually turn off my pc and turn it on again until an image was displayed. I tried checking the resolution and everything was fine, refresh rate was fine and everything. I have an AMD 6670 and an HD1700 gateway monitor. I already tried updating my drivers and entered in safe mode. Now, the strange thing is, it ONLY happens on mornings. I keep my computer on most of the day, but I've turned it off and on during the day to see if I still received the same message and it works just fine. This doesn't happen when I play games or anything only every morning on startup and I have to reboot until I see an image on my screen after about three tries and then it works fine even if I reboot it. I'm using Windows 7 Professional.

    Instead of rebooting the computer try, unplugging the power cable to the monitor, pressing the power button on the monitor, then plugging it back in and turning on the monitor and see if that works as well.

    You also need to list the full and complete specs of the computer. Be sure to include the make and model of the power supply as well; you may have to open the side of the computer to see the sticker on the power supply. Or if its a brand name system list the exact model and any upgraded parts you have. You can use the TSG Info tool to fill in your missing computer information in your user profile as well: http://forums.techguy.org/7586892-post1.html
