I've recently had some monitor resolution issues going on, My HP LE2201w has a maximum resolution of 2560 x 1600, but when i crank the resolution up to anything higher than 1680 x 1050 i get a message saying, 'input signal out of range | Change settings to 1680 x 1050, when i got in to my monitor settings it says that the recommended is 1680  x 1050 and that its the default setting.. how do i change it to the resolution i want, because i know that my monitor is fully capable of attaining that resolution since when i boot it in safe mode it goes all the way to the top.. can anybody help, thanks.

Regardless of options that may appear in Safe Mode (which is a diagnostic mode in which you are likely being offered the maximum capability of the video card rather than the monitor), the HP LE2201w has a native resolution of 1680x1050 pixels:


The monitor cannot display any higher resolution than this on the screen. The video driver (which is not loaded in Safe Mode) should register the native resolution and VESA modes the monitor can display and not offer out of range values. If this gets overridden in the video settings, you'll get the response you describe as the monitor can't display the signal being sent.
