I have a monitor that I am hooking up to a Raspberry Pi however it says that it is out of range, When I hooked the Pi to another monitor it worked fine. And when I hooked the out of range monitor to another PC I still got the out of range error. Is the monitor bad?

I have a monitor that I am trying to hook up to a raspberry Pi how =ever when I do hook it up it says out of range. but when I hook it up to a different monitor it works just fine. On the other hand when I hool up the siad monitor to the pc I recieve the same out of range message. Googling the problem tells me to change the refresh rate but it does not even show up as dual monitors so how can i  make the nessary changes.

What monitor is it and what connection type? Generally, you'd find out what you're going to need to change the settings to for the non-working monitor, make sure the operating monitor will also display that resolution and refresh rate, make the change and then swap the monitor.

See the user manual of the Monitor to find out if you can factory reset the settings of the Monitor.

Try setting the PC to 800x600 resolution at 50 or 60Hz refresh - something that absolutely any monitor should be able to do - & then connect the "out of range" monitor - if it still doesn't work it's scrap (or the video cable is U/S).

It is a genaric monitor. (tvs) and it is a VGA connection. I can not get either PC to reconize the non working monitor. It either says no signal on out of range. Anyway thanks for the help it was only $10 off craigslist so it was not that bad of a loss.

New info. When I had it hooked up to the laptop I think it detected it because everything I would open would show up on that screen and not the laptop. Like it was the primary. then when I rebooted it the log in screen was on the problem monitor. So it can be detected I just can not change the settings.

When the monitor is displaying the log in screen from the laptop, can you log into Windows from there? If you can, you could see what resolution and refresh rate the laptop is using and set the other systems the same. If it goes out of range when you try to log in, we'd need to know the model number of the monitor to see if we can find specifications as to what refresh rates and resolutions it can display.

There's a special version of 10 for the Pi - are you using it?

I agree with rqt - setting to to a default value that's commonly supported is the most likely way to make it work.

The out of range error usually happens if refresh rate for the monitor is configure to high or low from operating system or graphic card controller software.

Even if generic, is there any kind of ID or model number? Or is there a way to find it's native resolution via it's menus? If you can find that, adjust your VGA output to that resolution and refresh as forced custom mode.

 

Main problem is HDMI uses HDCP and VGA doesn't so when you boot, monitor doesn't handshake with Pi so Pi defaults to RCA output.
