Monitor out of range when a game is booted up

\015 HI all im new here so here it is... I have this compaq mv540 monitor and a new compaq computer. i have win.vista home basic. my system model is SR511ONX. AMD athalon 64 processor 3800+ 2.40ghz. i have 2046 in ram. my system type is a 32 bit operating system. MY video card is an nvidia fx 8600 or 8800 i forget.\015\012\015\012I play Warcraft III the frozen throne and it starts up fine but when it goes to the main menu of the game my monitor goes black and an error message appears on my monitor says "out of range set resolution lower or use monitor guide". I have no idea why this happens as i tried another monitor and i didnt get an error message but the screen went black none the less and i could not see anything. I have tried to run the game in 640X480 screen reso but same msg applies also i tried setting reso from video card from 1024X768 to 800X600 ( these are the only two resos i can choose)\015\012\015\012my other computer i have has xp and the game runs fine and i have read mix reviews before that some ppl have problems with this game and vista but so far from what i have read i have not read anything about a monitor problem for this game. \015\012\015\012ANy help wil be much appreciated ty.\015

Answers :

The maximum resolution for the MV540 is 1024X768 @60Hz refresh. The other monitor isn't giving you an error message because not all monitors have that feature, but both the monitors are unable to display whatever data the computer is sending. If the display is normal until you start the game, then the game itself is setting the resolution to something out of the monitors' range. You'd need to set the game up to play at a setting the monitors could handle. I've never played WoW so I have no idea if the game offers a way of selecting the resolution. The game may simply require more graphics capability than your monitor can provide. Most systems now are using 17 or 19-inch flat screens or CRT's, and they offer more resolution and refresh rate options.
