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.

I have been using a hitachi 19inch hd tv as a laptop monitor for a while but halfway through using it a few days ago the screen cut out and displayed the message "out of range" i didn't change any settings or do anything out of the ordinary so it's completely spontaneous. Any ideas on how i can get the screen working normal again?

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.

Cordless Mouse In The 25 To 50 Dollar Range

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. Perhaps microsoft wireless laser mouse 6000 ?

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?

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?

Message: No Rgb Input

Im getting the above message on a m8s pc and im not sure whats causing the problem. The pc is powering up (fans, led on mobo, power led etc) yet there is no input to the monitor. There is no gfx card just onboard vga. Ive tried my 7900gs in it but that didnt solve the problem. Ive reseated the ram & cpu, cleared the cmos (via the jumpers) and basically checked all the connections but nothing has worked

Tbh im starting to think the motherboard has died as its strange that all of the fans and leds are powering up yet nothing else is happening (im not even getting error beeps from the mobo) what do you guys think?

Ps: the mobo is an asus k8v-vm skt 754 with a sempron 3200+ fitted. Ive also tested the said pc on my own monitor using my own vga cable and still nothing.

Bootmagic Message At Startup

I setup my machine to dual boot win nt and win98 (separate partitions). I tried to use bootmagic as my boot manager but the damn program wouldn't even let me boot (came up with ". |. " At every boot and froze). After many reformats and failed bm installations, i finally decided to use nt's boot loader instead. But i have an annoying prompt at startup that says something like:

. |. Cannot find btmagic.img
Press any key to load from active partition. After pressing a key, it goes to the nt boot loader with both os listed and everything is fine. I have win98 on c: (active) and also the nt load files on there (formatted fat, of course). Does anyone know how to get rid of that damn message?

Message To Ati And Nvidia

As we embark on nvidia's next generation of cards. I remain an optimist, but i am pretty sure that fermi isn't going to be revolutionary or exciting. What we will see is just a fps improvement, we are not going to see avatar-like graphics any time soon. Whatever fps improvement, whether it be 10fps, 5fps etc. More than the competing ati card, i am certain none of their offering will offer better power savings, better reliability, and a better warranty than an xfx 5870. Also i find it hard to believe that nvidia's solution will some how be better than the revolutionary eyeinfinity that must be praised by consumers, regardless of the bezel management issue. Eyeinfinity raised the bar and ati will be known for bringing multi-monitor gaming to the masses, so i give ati kudos for that. But that said, i am pretty certain that i won't be upgrading in 3 years or until something is released that will absolutely blow my mind, because the performance increase generation after generation has been quite sub-par and disappointing the last decade. These incremental performance increases which seem to be a 5-10 fps gain is just pathetic by both of these companies. Basically what these companies are telling us is that they can't do better. Lack of competition? Probably a factor. It's surprising that a 3rd graphics card company hasn't propped up yet. I have a message for both of these companies. Stop these slow incremental performance increases in graphics cards and gouging the consumer with these horiffic prices. And stop categorizing video cards by price by low, mid, and high end, and then marketing them as 'revolutionary' graphics, especially when the low-end provides a horriffic experience. We are tired of what seems like simple refreshes, and we desire ground breaking products in which performance will blow our mind. Not some 5-10fps average performance increase. That may of been fine and dandy before, but not in this age. We know there is technology out there that is far better than what me might consider 'high end. ' look at the movie 'avatar' for example. We want access to those kind of graphics and technology, and we want them soon, other wise we know that you guys are just severely holding the consumer back for your own gain. People are catching on and will no longer buy your products especially with these small incremental performance increases that show no innovation and are simply a way for you to sell a repackaged product with slightly better performance, regardless if the 'architecture' is different, or not. We are tired of this and we won't stand for it much longer. You both will fail if you continue on this path of smoke screen competition. Do not let us down. The world is on to both of you just to let you know, and we will bring both your companies down if you keep these deceitful practices up.

Message: Usb Bandwidth Has Been Exceeded

I have a webcam and i would like to use it , but when i plug it in a little message pops up from bottom and says that the usb bandwidth has been exceeded. My webcam used to work and i cant remember hanging anything recently except something to do with my network. All that is plugged into this computer is, modem, wireless keyboard and mouse, and something called 'psp wifi dongle'. I recently disabled my modem through its properties and plugged my webcam in and it worked fine. But then i enabled my modem again and it wouldn't work. I have tried plugging it in to most of my usb ports most of which are seperate from my modem. Anyone know anything about usb bandwidth exceeded?

Message At Post - Cannot Display This Mode

Every other time when i reboot i get a black screen at post that says 2: dvi-d cannot display this mode. Usually it will go ahead and boot just fine in a few seconds but once in a while it just hangs on it. Is it a video card issue or motherboard or what? Anyone had this problem before? How do you fix it? I did a little research and i think it may have something to do with the video card bios not detecting the resolution or something on the lcd correctly at first?

Here are my important specs:

Amd opteron 165
Dfi nf4 sli-dr expert 3/29/06 bios
Ati x1900 xtx 512mb
Dell 2005fpw
