Default Analog out of Range

When I play Crysis I get the "Analog out of Range" error a lot and it totally freezes my computer. Its a 22'' LG monitor and the computer is a i7-920, 3GB DDR3, and an ATI Radeon 4850. Anyone have any clue how to fix this?

Everytime you try to run Crysis you mean?
Happen with anything else?

It seems like you are pushing your monitor past its limits in resolution, or this is what seems to be happening.

You can fix this though.

Go to the game folder first. For instance, mines in 'E:\Games\Electronic Arts\Crytek\Crysis'

Within there you'll find a System.cfg file. Open this up.

Change where it says, for example on mine:

r_width=1680
r_height=1050

to something your monitor can provide, for instance 1280x1024, or, what you run your desktop at.

Then File, Save, and you are done!

If this happens however in the middle of a game and not just at start up, it could be leading to more serious problems. Especially if it is actually crashing your PC, and not just switching off the screen.

I hope this helps

Yup I can open up the game and I can play it but during it after a short while it goes to the analog out of range. I can't even shut off the computer using the power button I need to turn off the power strip unless it is just frozen there and it will never stop. Sometimes the speakers emit a strange sort of noise too.

It sounds to me like your video card is starting to go out on you.

Do you play any other games? Does the same thing happen?

It could be that Crysis pushes the video card a lot more, and so the problem is more likely to occur then.

Is it overclocked? If so, push it back to stock.

Unlikely, but check the card is seated properly.

Remove drivers, and re-install the latest drivers from ATI.

If those ideas do not work, send the card back for a replacement, as it is definietly faulty.

What type of connection is your monitor using? DVI or standard VGA?

I only played Combat Arms on it besides Crysis. I don't believe it happened, it might've once. Nope I didn't overclock it, it's stock - http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....=1218017465909

And apparently I have the latest drivers.

VGA I believe

1 year parts and labor so that should cover it hopefully. But you know these companies they try to tell you there's nothing wrong -_- Let's hope I can get a new part and let's hope that the gfx card is the problem

Try lowering the refresh rate and set the resolution to something lower in the game options. It sounds like the game is playing in a resolution and/or refresh rate the monitor can't handle.

So Atomic do you think it could be the monitor not the computer/gfx card? I have this monitor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...ICS-_-24005112

I'm thinking the game settings are wrong. What is the game set to run at? It should be 1680 x 1050 @ 75 Hz or below. Anything higher is out of range for that monitor.

In fact, the monitor and game may not like the VGA connection. If the LG has a DVI connection, use it.

My computers port is DVI, but the monitors port is VGA. I have it connected a DVI connected to the computer with a VGA converter then it is hooked to the monitor with VGA

[C]><----<[M]

> = DVI
< = VGA

OK.

I'm stumped. The game settings are OK. Are your desktop settings the same as the game? Is V-Sync enabled in game?

yup it said that my setting should be on high and they are, I even tried lower settings, no luck there either. Before I usually could try again and get past the certain part it crashed last time but now the game is stuck on one part of the game and everytime I replay it crashes at the same part. :/ And yup resolution is set same ingame and on my desktop. BTW just to inform you sometimes I get "Analog out of range: Power Saving Mode" and it has the same effects as the other analog out of range. Tomorrow I might take off the side if I have time and see whats going on in there. I just am afraid to fry a part :S

Do you have the latest game updates or patches?

Have you checked your monitor power settings to see if something got changed by accident?


Don't mind me, I'm just throwing ideas against the wall to see if any stick.

Let me try the new patch. I waited in line last night to DL it and I totally forgot -_- Really annoyed right now as I have to wait in line again, hehe. We'll see in 30 minutes if that's the problem, although I believe it might've crashed once playing Combat Arms, not 100% sure though as it was a while ago [and CA is a much less graphic game]

I reckon your card needs replacing to be honest, and its crashing mid game, and switching off, causing the system to crash a long with it.

Is it still under warranty?
