I have recently found a HP 2011X Monitor and i wanted to connect it to my HP Pavilion Notebook. The notebook is HDMI but the monitor is VGA so i bought an adapter. So when I try to connect the monitor and my laptop it says "Input signal Out of range - Change Settings to 1600 x 900 - 60 Hz. So i did that but it is still giving me the same error message
Any advice on how to fix it?
Big thanks, Vlad

Welcome to HP support community.
These messages are normal when the computer truly goes into sleep mode or loses the video signal (such as when the computer is turned off). However, if the monitor displays any of these messages when the computer should be displaying video, something is wrong.
If you suspect the monitor should be displaying an image from the PC instead of the message, use one of the following sections that match how the monitor behaves after the computer is powered on:
(By the end of this article all the issues should be resolved)
Let me know if that helps.

I tried doing what you said but i don't have another laptop or anything else to connect it to
I tried everything from trying to wake up the monitor which dind.t work it just woke up my laptop
I also tried basiclly everything that was in the message
Nothing worked and I don't know what to do
I don't have a beefy computer, I am just trying to connect my laptop to the monitor and i doesn't work
It worked when i first connected it 2 days ago but after that it kept giving me the input signal out of range message

There is nothing wrong with your monitor...but it sure is a problem with the signal converter you are using (your adapter)
you experience an incompatibility...changing signal from HDMI (digital) to a VGA (analog)
your adapter is the problem not the monitor..
