Hi friends
Today one of my friends messed up my PC
while I was away. Now when I switch it on it shows
Out Of Range. My friend suggested to log in Safe mode and
change the frequency. But I can't log in safe mode also. The same problem persists. My OS is XP.
Please help me with this.
Thanks

What monitor are you using? If it's an LCD, try hooking up a CRT monitor to see if you can get in to see the settings.

"Try moving it closer."
lol

Can you still see the normal display with the message "Out of range" showing or is the message all you can see.

Hi,

Get from a friend or someone other a liveCD. Then edit the boot.ini in c:\boot.ini . There add VGA mode.
Or boot to safemode with vga. I think it is the second choice.

I would recommend to have a look, if the monitor is not a bit fried. Basically if your friend hasn't overheated the monitor with hight resolution or frequency.

Google: boot.ini vga mode xp
