It sounds like it might be running a resolution or refresh rate higher than your Monitor can handle. If you reboot your PC into safe mode (keep pressing F8 as your machine boots up and choose Safe Mode), go to Device manager which is in Control Panel -> System and remove the Display Adaptor, restart your machine into normal mode and it will redetect your graphics card and you can change the resolution to something that your monitor can display.

I am guessing you can get into Safe Mode with this monitor attached. It might be worthwhile trying the monitor on another machine just to make sure it is working fine.

If you tried three different monitors, am I to assume the all had the same problem? Did these monitors work ok on one system, but not this one? If this is the case, you probably have the video card setting out of whack. You should be able to adjust that in safe mode. If worse came to worse, in safe mode you could remove the video driver in add/remove programs, and probably remove the device in device manager, then re-boot and let windows find it and set it up again.

I had a similar problem on an old pentium I machine but I did get it working again, safe mode gives you default video drivers and settings so try that.

Im having this issue as well....iv tried two different monitors and i get the out of range message...
right now im installing XP and going to try installing 7 over the top via the upgrade...hopefully that will work or else i dunno how it will work on my other PC...
i havnt got the guts to try it on my vista machine! hahaha
ill get back to you on how this goes ..

regards
Jono

EDIT: so i installed it on a laptop...so the screen problem wouldnt be an issue...
the only reasoning i could come up with is that the drivers for your paticular chipset/vid card arent included in the beta of win 7...and that the generic ones dont even suit the combination of card and monitor...apart from that im stumped as i still havnt solved the problem ....
