Well i'm far from a proffessional but hers my input,lol. Make sure the cable between the computer and monitor is in tightly on both ends(if you can access it on the monitor). Do you have onboard video, or a video card, or both. if both, plug the monitor to the onboard video.

I do have a video card but it worked normally with the normal setup i had before i moved. Is the position of my monitor and my compter out of sync? could that get rid of the OUT OF RANGE error?

EDIT: also when i turn my computer on, the monitor doesnt work at all any suggestions from other people?

Do you have a wireless monitor? That error is probably just meant to solve two errors in one message, i would just worry about the no signal part.

Does the rest of your computer sound like it all starts?

yeah my keyboard and mouse both light up and my disk drive pops out. Its just im not getting a singal from my monitor to my computer at all. Eveything seems to be working with the computer. You think its the cord that attaches the monitor to the computer?
