Default 17" monitor problems

Hi, my dad has a 17" samsung lcd monitor, and suddenly while he was afk and came back it said 'out of range optimum 1280x1024 60hz..blah'

and i tried rebooting, but it had this out of range message constantly

during reboot, even during safemode, during everything, 1024x768, 800x600, its just constant 'out of range...'

any suggestions?
