Input signal out of range

Hello.
I updated the Nvidia 7600 GT video card driver from nvidea official site to the latest(266.58_desktop_winxp_32bit_english_whql.exe) and noticed that the resolution and frequencies options are to many than before and wrong to the monitor.

Previous I had max 1280 x 1024 with 75Hertz and the game was running fine, now in the options it shows 2048 x 1536 with a max 170Hertz!?
Now I use 1280 x 1024 with 60Hertz, if I set the Hertz higher(70, 72 or 75), the screen goes black with the same out of range error.
When I try to enter a game the screen goes black with a text - D SUB input signal is out of range.

The problem is the video driver right, so I need a older driver? :D

Hi daniel88 :D
Try rolling back the driver to the previous one, "how to below"
Start Device Manager>Double-click the device for which you want to
restore the driver>Click the Driver tab, and then click the Roll Back
Driver button.

For future reference, drivers are best left well alone unless you are
attempting to resolve a particular issue that the newer driver was
released to address, hope the above resolves the issue and let us know.

I reinstalled the latest driver few times, then installed a older one and did the roll back in the middle somewhere.

Fixed, Right click on the game's exe - Run as - Administrator.


Why won't it run with user, what changes running as administrator?

Other than uninstalling both the drivers and the device completely and starting afresh hoping the hardware wizard sets it up correctly I cannot think of anything else to suggest I'm afraid.

what changes running as administrator?

Hi daniel88
I have a similar problem with a similar Nvidia Vid Card on my XP. >> out of range error <<
Only one game (a very high use snooker/pool game) has this problem and I can only think of adding more RAM and then another Vid Card.
If yours is as bad as mine I finish with 'scrambled icons' o the desktop and then I just do a System Restore.
More RAM is about your only hope (unless you have 8G already) as my Win7 has not got the problem.

Thank You

Thank you for you're replays.

How to uninstall both the drivers and the device completely?

Exactly, but this problem was not found until I got my video cards condenser repaired.

One of the condensers was damaged, so I got it replaced with another one in a computer store service.
But, no my mistake the input signal error was the reason I got it replaced, because even it was damaged(blown up) everything was fine.
