It means either the resolution or the refresh rate that the monitor is capable of displaying is being exceeded. Check your manual and do not exceed the monitor specs.

The settings are with your video card. Right click on the desktop and choose properties/settings/advanced. It's usually under the monitor tab but you may have to look around. Lower the refresh rate one setting and see if the message goes away.

If you are using XP, hold down f8 during boot and highlight last known good configuration. That will reboot using old settings. Otherwise, go in in safe mode and reset your monitor settings.

When you try to use safe mode do you just get the signal out of range message? You could try another monitor, maybe newer and larger. By the way is this a CRT or LCD monitor?
