    Periodically, with no apparent pattern, a message will appear on the screen saying "out of range"....that's all the message. It occurs when I haven't been on for awhile, and instead of a blank screen---message appears. Nothing, not even hitting the reset button does anything. I always have to turn off the surge protector & I usually wait about a minute and then turn it back on & turn on the cpu and it seems to take care of it. I would like to know why it happens at all. I run XP and have DSL.
