Input Signal Out of Range

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I posted a thread like this about 2 months ago and didn't really get anywhere and my original post was kind of disorganized but I'm trying again.

When I run certain games such as Killing Floor, Company of Heroes or Rise of Legends at certain resolutions, most notably my native resolution, I get black bars on all sides of my monitor and a green box in the center that says "Input Signal Out of Range." Most 4x3 resolutions work. When googling this error most of the results seem to suggest changing the refresh rate and updating drivers, I have tried both methods to no avail.

I downloaded the new Catalyst 10.12 drivers and they didn't help, I have downloaded drivers for my monitor but I don't know what to do with the files they gave me. The folder contains a Catalog File, which contains Security Catalogs, a XML Source File and other folders.

So, any help?

So you are changing the refresh rate and resolution in game right? I know it sounds stupid but it is a common mistake.
And the monitor drivers.... Control panel-device manager select monitors and click update drivers. Select the folder you downloaded with the drivers.

should just be a resolution or refresh rate problem, you're set at 60Hz and not just in-game like the poster above suggested may be the case?

i just downloaded those drivers to see what you are talking about. saw the catalog file and folders based on operating system (32-bit and 64-bit). in the respective folders are .icm files that affect the color profile, etc. wouldn't really affect this issue.

Seems like your refresh rate is going higher than your monitor can handle. I usually get that error when I try forcing my refresh rate to something higher than it can handle.Do you have any commands that auto exec to increase your REFRESH rate higher than your monitor can handle?? What resolution are u trying to use and whats ur monitor size?

Most of the games I have this error with dont have an option to change refresh rate. My general refresh rate in windows is set to 60Hz. I just tried updating my monitors drivers with the control panel and according to windows I am using the same or better drivers than the ones I downloaded.

I'm not using any commands to try to force different refresh rates. I'm running at 1920x1080. My monitor is about 22"
EDIT: This got me thinking, are there any command lines similar to ones to force windowed or a resolution that can force a refresh rate?

This is my monitor by the way.
