    LCD Refresh out of range

    I have a couple of old LCD monitors (Samsung SyncMaster 170MP and SGI
    1600SW). Niether seem to work with Vista - all I get is a black screen. My
    graphics card is a ATI Radeon X1600Pro. When I boot - the screen refresh goes
    out of range. My Monitor is set to Default Monitor. I can neither change the
    refresh rates nor attempt to add a monitor driver.

    The monitors work in safe mode (VGA) and when I disable the video card to
    VGA mode.

    How can I set the Default Monitor refresh rate to 60Hz? Is there another
    solution?

    Out of Rage - 36.3Khz / 34 Hz - ATI X1900XTX

    I am experiencing the same problem using the ATI X1900XTX. I get all the way
    thru the installation of Vista RC-1, and then the screen turns black.

    I then reboot the system and perform the repair from the installation Disk,
    and it is unable to resolve the error. My screen displays the error:

    Out of Range - 36.3Khz / 34Hz

    At this point I am unable to continue. However, the machine works
    flawlessly on Win XP 64 Bit O/S.

    Any ideas on how to resolve these issues with ATI Cards?

    Regards,

    Chad

    RE: LCD Refresh out of range

    I solved my original problem by updating the BIOS -- it turned out to be a
    problem (if I recollect correctly) with the memory addressing for PCI-E. No
    problem with the graphics card itself. Hope this works in your case.
