Having problems with your Computer Monitors ?

Why does my monitor say out of range when hooked up? Just purchased an older flat screen monitor. Menu buttons, arrow keys on front do nothing.


Answers :

Your pc is probably set to a resolution too high for the older monitor to display. Reboot in safe mode, adjust the video resolution to the lowest setting (probably800x600) and reboot. If this doesn't fix it, uninstall your video card from device manager, reboot and windows will install a generic driver that will work. Let me know if this works or not.

No menu Hi, i have a problem with the iiyama I bought 5 years ago. It always worked fine, until recently: the menu "CONTRASTE" comes on the screen, goes by itself to zero, and won't go away, making it difficult to see what I'm working on. All the menu buttons are not reacting, just the Power button seems ok. I tried to unplung it, then switch it on while pressing the + and - buttons, but nothing happens...
