Out of range?

Could someone help me out here please. I have a 17" Acer LCD monitor and when i boot up and close down the computer i always get the following message:

Analog RGB
720 x 400 /86Hz
out of range

How do i configure the monitor to stop this message from appearing? The monitor is an ACER AL1730. Thanks

Have you set your monitor to it's native resolution?

Normally a standard format screen is 1280x1024 with 60 htz refresh rate.

I would think your graphics card is objecting to being set at 86Hz -

Also your resolution is very low for a 17" monitor.

I would try it at 1280 x 1024 @ 60Hz

How to check click here look at your monitors instructions for the native rate.

PS a better guide click here to change the refresh rate you need to select Advanced on the set up screen.

I have changed the settings to: 1280 x 1024 @ 60Hz as advised but when i restarted the monitor the message still appeared only this time it stated:

Analog RGB
1280 x 1024/78Hz
Out of range

Is there a way for me to change the monitor screen settings via the monitor?

It still says 78 htz. When you set the refresh rate did to choose save before close?
