Frequency Out Of Range Error


Everytime i try to start up a game on my computer, like fiesta or sims 3, my monitor goes blank and it says "frequency out of range". Every once in a while it'll say "no signal". I've been searching online on how to fix this, and i've gotten answers such as change the resolution, which i have and it did nothing. It also said to lower the frequency on the display to 59 or 60hz instead of 75hz, but when i went to change this, it was already at 60hz and there were no other options. I read also that it could mean my video card is overheating or something of the like. How do i fix that?

My monitor is a gateway, model number hd2201. I don't know if that helps at all. I'm really terrible with computer things, so please explain how to fix it as if you were writing a "computers for dummies" book. Oh, another thing as that sometimes it'll let me play for a while before the error comes up, but only at first. After the first "frequency out of range" message, it comes up immediately when i restart the computer.

Error - Edid Does Not Contain The Range Limitation

I started getting this error lately and its taking longer to load vista:

"Edid does not contain the range limitation"

I have not changed drivers or anything from before. I did switch the connector from my card to using the vga adaptor that came with it instead of to hdmi. Occasionally my desktop will fail to load up now with dual displays in extended mode( one in vga, one in dvi). I'm using a radeon 3850 in vista 32. Any ideas?

Different Frequency Dual Channel Ram

I recently bought a new computer (well, yesterday), it's a asus a8n-e motherboard (nforce 4 ultra chipset) and has a amd athlon 64 3200+ mounted on it. The board supports dual channel ram. I have a new 400mhz 512mb stick and two older 333mhz 256mb stick and i was wondering if it was a good/bad/ridiculous/wonderful idea to stick them both in?

Memory Clock Frequency Stuck

My crappy 512 meg evga 7300gt has been exhibiting a strange syptom as of late. I'd been running it for months oced to 415 mhz (core) and 650 mhz (memory), up from 350 and 533, respectively. I've been playing games like s. T. A. L. K. E. R. , Hl2, bf2142, prey, coh, supcom, etc, and aside from the occasional artifact, they all ran pretty consistently with few episodes of overheating. I recently updated to the latest forceware drivers (94. 24), and soon after i noticed that my memory clock was set to 266 mhz as the supposed stock setting. It'll only overclock to 1/2 the speed increase i had before, so it'll now run at a max of ~325 mhz. Anything much above that and it won't even pass the little test it runs in xp. I don't know if it ever ran correctly with these new drivers, because the week i updated them i wasn't really playing games. Does all this indicate that maybe half my memory dead? It doesn't seem like the card would even work if that was the case. It plays some of my games-albeit slowly-pausing to load an area or room and then running okay until a lot more needs to be rendered. My system tends to crash frequently now though. If you're thinking bad drivers are the issue, i already uninstalled the new drivers, ran driver cleaner, and tried using the quadro 160. 02 drivers and also the original forceware (84. 66) that came with my card. Still the same problem. Any help/input is greatly appreciated. If i wasn't so broke, i'd avoid soliciting all of you for help and just chuck it for an 8600 gts.

3dmark06 - Wrong Memory Frequency Reported

In 3dmark 06 if i click on "details" it tells me that the memory frequency of my ram is 667mhz. However, i know it isn't - its 4gb (2x2gb) ocz ddr2 800, the splash screen at startup tells me its ddr2 800 and cpu-z does too. Is this a known issue with 3dmark 06? Im running it in vista 64.

Computer To Tv Across 20-30 Ft Range

I've got a nice 26" monitor that used to double as the tv in my room. My old roommate had a nicer tv downstairs. Now it's just my crap and i'm trying to set up a more engaging entertainment system i can upgrade piece by piece. Currently i'm trying to figure out how to pipe the movies i have stored on my hard drive into my old 32" tv. The tv sits downstairs, and my office is set up upstairs on a loft space. There's about 20ft between the tower and the tv, or probably 40-55ft if i were running cables along walls and such. I figure i can: find a dvd player that accepts usb drives and just shuttle stuff across manually (probably the cheapest option). Run cables: find some kind of wireless solution to receive signals sent over my home wifi network. I'd like to hear some thoughts as to what is the best option, and what's most practical/affordable. I probably won't have the budget or motive to "do my entertainment system up right" for another 6-12 months.

Windows 7 Display Out Of Range

This question is just because i do not want to sign up for tech forums. If you accidentally set your display monitor out of range, restart, spam f8 as it is starting, and choose, "enable low video resolution" from the advanced boot up options. Then change the resolution, and you are good to go! (Resetting resolution in safe mode doesn't stick-this does)

If that does not work (which it will), you can wait for the computer to fully boot, then right click, hit the up key 3 times, tab twice, then spam the down key (5x), hit enter. Then tab 5 more times, and enter. That should get you to the resolution screen, and change the settings even though you can't see. It should pop up if you do it right. Last ditch effort, either spam f8 and boot last known good config, or spam f8, go into safe mode, then uninstall the video driver and install it again. An untested one was simply unplug the monitor, then plug it back in. The computer should re-detect the monitor and choose a good resolution.

I need a new cordless mouse in the 25-50 dollar range. It will be used for internet and windows, it need to be in standard size or bigger, wireless, and comfortable, thats it, i've been thinking maybe logitech lx8, but thats over 50 dollars so i'll get it if there is nothing else worth buying under 50.

No Wireless Networks Are Found In Range

I have an acer one netbook and just recently i've been having a lot of trouble with my internet or wireless card. Whenever i try to look for a network via "refresh", it says "no wireless networks are found in range". My wireless adapter is on, that is fine. I even looked in my device manager and it shows some of my network adapters with a yellow (!) Sign. I tried to look for updated hardware and it says that is the most updated one. I tried uninstalling it and it says i need to reboot my computer. I've rebooted my computer and nothing happened. Please help. P. S. Would going back to the factory default settings, via disk and restarting my whole computer, wiping out all my files", fix this issue?

Wireless Keyboard & Mouse With Best Maximum Range

I'm setting up my secondary computer on my viewsonic 37" lcd which i use primarily to watch tv. I would like to have a wireless keyboard/mouse to use on the sofa which will sit approximately 10-12 ft from the tower. I'm trying to find the keyboard/mouse combo that will work at best maximum range. I'm gonna throw out a $100 limit for the 2. I will primarily be using for web surfing or the occasional gaming (*** gaming will be on my primary comp and dell 2407). I understand the bluetooth is "supposed" to have a better range but all the reviews i've read are horrible. I'm wonding if anyone has a similar setup and what keyboard/mouse combo they use?

Gaming Headset For Price Range $50 To $140

I use to be all about the headset with the pull down mic on it for gaming but switched to a headphone and stand-up mic setup about a year back. I'm just about over it now as the sound quality is relatively poor and it picks up background noises far too well so now i'm looking into headsets that are relatively inexpensive but suitable for gaming. I've done some shopping around and i'm seeing alot of the new headsets have the mic on the cord which i am pretty much against 100% unless there is a reason i'm not seeing. Price range is $50-$140. I just want to get something decent, suggestions?

Wireless Routers Connection Range Is Low

My wireless routers connection range is very low. How do i fix this? I have a very old router it's a buffalo whr- g54s router and it just does the weirdest thing. When i place my laptop right next to the computer it's signal strength ranges from fair and good, never very good. The router is situated in my game room so anywhere in my game room my laptop's connection is fairly good. But when i move out of my game room into any other part in the house it loses connection completely. I've tried everything, i've reset the router's settings, i cleared away things that could be blocking it's connection for example television sets and home phones (cell phones as well). I'm in desperate need for help for i do not want to stay in the game room for the rest of my life. Does anyone know the answer to this issue?

Error: Stop: C000021a Fatal System Error

It was working fine yesterday. But then i started my comp and i saw the motherboard logo. Then usual testing. Then the windows logo. But right before it was ready to go to logon screen it shows the blue screen with some fatal error:

Stop: c000021a {fatal system error}the session manager initialization system process terminated unexpectedly with a system status 0xc000026c, i thought itwas the virus i got few days ago. I put different harddrives in different os's but nothing works. Even trying to restore stops. Everything stops with some fatal error. Now i'm pretty sure it's the hardware. But how do i know which part it is. I mean more likely it's the video card. Cause i overclocked it, but how do i find out for sure what's causing the problem
Is it even hardware? I'm completely clueless. Please help. My stupid windows xp doesnt start on other comps. I'm pretty sure it works just doesnt like hardware. But it contains a lot of information i cant delete.

Error: Stop: 0x0000007e - Windows Loading Error

I have encountered a problem when installing windows xp on a bare system. It starts up fine, then loads into the windows blue screen, checking for hardware configuration, but then upon windows startup, it stops and announces an error. Stop: 0x0000007e (0xc0000005, 0x80840a02, 0xf78d205c, 0xf78d1d58). Any advice as to what to do would be helpful, i believe the problem to be either having the cpu been installed (physically) but no drivers yet in place or something to do with the hdd configuration.

Error: Kmode_exception_not_handled

One of my friends had bought and intel d865gbf/d865perc motherboad with 3. 0 ghz processer, 256 mb of ddr ram and 80 g. B 7200 rpm seagate barcuda h. D. D. The trouble is the installation process dosen't starts, whenever try to install windows 2000 or xp we get errors when installation is starting and then its stops. The errors are;

*** Stop: 0x00000000a (0x0000108, 0x0000002, 0x00000001, 0x80445c66)
Irql_not_less_or_equal

***Addresss 80445c6 base at 804000000, date stamp 384d5a76 - ntoskrnl.exe
Or the other error: kmode_exception_not_handled. ***Address 804d994a base at 80400000, date stamp 389d5a76

One important thing is i tried to use this hard drive along with my as secondry on my system but the system dosen't starts up. Whats the real problem, is it with bios, ram or hard drive or the board itself because other hard drives are not working on that pc. I think there is some kind of virus in hard drives boot sector, or in ram or bios if this is then how to clean them. I dont know the process.

Raid 0 Error

On bootup, when the list of bootable devices flashes on screen, one of my hard drives (part of a two disk raid 0) has "error" next to it. What could be the problem? It cant be too serious, considering that my computer is still running perfectly. Does anyone have any ideas of possible issues/solutions? Any hard drive diagnostic software i can try?

Error: Kernel_stack_inpage_error

My computer has been running fine for the last few weeks since i built it. I did run into some trouble with a certain game but i found out that was a problem with sp2, unreal engine 2. 0, and the latest nvidia drivers. Well i solved that problem but turning dep off and the system has been completely fine since then, until a couple days ago when i got this error:

Kernel_stack_inpage_error

***Stop:0x00000077 (0xc0000185, 0xc0000185. 0x00000000, 0x00116000)

I looked it up an decided i'd work on fixing it today but when i turned on my computer today i got this:

Machine_check_exception

***Stop: 0x0000009 (0x00000004, 0x8054da70, 0xb2000000, 0x00070f0f)

What should i do here? Would reformatting and starting again be the best option? Anyone have an idea as to what might be going on? Sorry to pester you guys but this is my first build and i'm a little confused as to what i should do next. Oh yeah i forgot to mention, i got that error twice. It seems to shwo up within five minutes of turning on the computer.

Hdd Error

The user has a dell dimension 8200, with xp home. There is only one hd in the system, it is set as a master. The motherboard that i replaced had gotten fried. The reasoning behind why i think that is because the bios would not find either the cdrom or hd; both of which were connected to different ide slots. So i replaced the board, and the bios finds the cd-rom, but not the hd. I tested the hd in another machine and it works fine. I have tested the ide cable i'm using, as well as the molex plug providing power, both work fine. The psu is fine. I uninstalled all unnecessary devices, and still no luck. The bios detects it as an unknown device. I tried loading wd datalifeguard tools, but it can't read the drive either. The last thing i can think of is flashing the bios, which i'm not wanting to do. It seems as though the bios doesn't know where to look for the drive, or it's not obtaining the proper i/o address or dma channel?

Ipnathlp Error

I have a friend whos computer is locking up on him. He says its locking up when windows loads up (a lot of times) or at random times, ie surfing the net, playing a game, etc. A lock up is just everything freezes, and he cannot move the mouse. Now i have checked event viewer and its come up with ipnathlp as a problem, and it seems to come up whenever the computer crashes. A more detailed error is:

The dhcp allocator has disabled itself on ip address 10. 0. 0. 1, since the ip address is outside the 192. 168. 0. 0/255. 255. 255. 0 scope from which addresses aare being allocated to the dhcp clients. To enable the dhcp allocator on this ip address, please change the scope to include the ip address, or change the op address to fall within the scope.could something like that lock up a computer? If so, would changing the ip address fix it?
