out of range?

  diddi.ash 12:00 26 Jul 2007

sometimes when i have left my computer for a few minutes the screen goes black and says "out of range" could anyone tell me why it has just started to do this and why?
and what i can do to rectify it apart from haveing to turn my computer of from the tower and then turn on again?

Have you got a screensaver that is not suitable for your monitor, as sometimes out of range appears when a picure resolution is out of range of the monitor.

It's usually on games it happens, but it may just be that when you leave the computer, a screensaver cuts in, that can't be resolved.

you can try checking for screensaver, although on games, the usual answer is to reduce the scan size of the monitor.

Just a thought.
