Ok so I boot up from my computer and I get this message saying

"Monitor is working.
Out of scan range
Change PC setting"


What do I do? I can't use my computer.

Try this: http://www.sysopt.co...p/t-106613.html

It seems your refresh rate or resolution is too high. Post back with your confirmed results, :whistling:.

Well I am not too sure, but I would easily guess that you would do it using your monitor buttons. Try that. :whistling:.

I would just use the buttons cautiously, and be careful what changes you make onto the monitor.

There should be a "Factory Reset" button on your monitor, try that, and post back your results.
