i just sent my computer in to get a new power source installed and upon return of my computer i hooked it up to a different monitor than the one i normally use and everything was working fine. i bring the computer back up to my school and plug it into my relatively new flat screen LCD monitor and when it starts up, it goes through all of the booting screens, but when windows loads up the screen just goes black with a small blue message box in the middle that reads "ANALOG OUT OF REACH 75.3 kHz / 60 Hz." i have no idea why it says that but i dont know how to go about changing whatever it is that's wrong with it. can someone please help me out here?

Try going into Safe Mode (press and release F8 continually as soon as you power up the PC, press Enter at the menu to select the top choice) and then go to Control Panel > Display > Settings tab and move the resolution slider as far left as you can.

Do you get a display now if you boot up normally ?

Just had this problem myself. When you hooked the computer up to another monitor, did you change the screen resolution?

Managed,
Sorry I sat in here too long and missed your solution, didn't mean to cut in. But at least we agree.

yeah i changed it to 1200 x 1600 on the other monitor, but i would assume that this monitor would have that same resolution as an option... i tried booting in safe mode but i'm still gettin the same message.. anything else i could do?

Connect it to the same monitor you changed the resolution on or... let me find an easy way to open display properties in the dark and I'll get back to you.

No problem Dr. C.

Did you still get a black screen in Safe Mode ?

Never tried. I used the mouse in the dark and clicked my way to display properties. Yeah I guess I spend too much time with my computer.

If your Control panel is in classic view, this series of keys will get you to display properties and restore the resolution to 800x600:

Windows Key
C
ENTER
Right Arrow five times
ENTER
TAB six times
Right Arrow four times
TAB three times
Left Arrow as many times as you want
ENTER

If your Control Panel is in Category view, it will open some random icon on the desktop.

what i dont understand is why safe mode wont work.. isnt that usually set on a small resolution anyway? i mean i know the easiest thing would be to just plug it back into the other monitor i used, but i just drove 80 miles to school.. it would really be an inconvience to go all the way back home just for that reason.
