so i just downloaded and installed the new catalyst 7.5 suite for my x1950xt (after a proper uninstall and cleaning, of course) and am running into a bit of trouble. the drivers installed just fine. i had to reboot to finalize installation, fine. then when i rebooted all i get is an error message from my monitor saying "out of range." the computer is on and running just fine, but for some reason the card is now outputting something i can't see. when i boot up i get the BIOS and windows loading screen and then when windows finally loads i get the error message.

just for reference, i have a LCM-19w4 monitor, radeon x1950xt card, and am using a DVI cable to connect them. i think i have a VGA cable around somewhere so i may try that later, but only as a temporary solution until i figure out how to fix the problem.

so, any ideas? :thumbsup:

Hi dogslikeus.
You could try to reset the resolution and colors to monitor specs via safe mode.
If push comes to shove, temporarily hooking up a crt and re-setting the above for your lcd nearly always works.

i tried, to no avail, to find my VGA cable. and i lack a CRT (roommate has a laptop and i've been LCD for a long time). so i ended up having to uninstall the 7.5 drivers and reinstall 7.4. they work perfectly anyway. i'll just wait for 7.6 i guess. no biggie.
