I've been using my PC with a 22" HKC monitor for over a year now. Earlier today I returned to my PC and began using it, when the screen suddenly turned black and started displaying an "OUT OF RANGE" message in the middle of the screen.
As you can imagine this is rather irritating. I did manage to get the resolution down to a lower level (with keyboard shortcuts), this fixed the problem - however every time I switch on my PC Windows 7 automatically resets the resolution to the native 1920 x 1080 - hence the problem starts again.
The monitor is connected via VGA. I've got an ATI card, I tried updating my drivers to fix the problem (using a second monitor @ 1024 x 768).
The picture is fine up until the login screen; that is to say, the BIOS and Windows 7 Startup screens are both visible. (I might add that, checking the monitor's menu, neither of these use 1920 x 1080)
One possibility could be that the screen has just packed in (I've heard HKC monitors are bad quality), another could be that the EDID has become corrupted.
I'm really not sure what it is or what to do, any help would be appreciated. I've been googling all over the place but answers are mixed.
Update: Plugging the monitor into another PC worked with no problems. That means it must be something to do with my graphics card (ATI 5770, for the record), or my graphics drivers. I'm going to update the drivers; is there anything else I should know?
