Default Frequency out of range?

Whenever I try to go into some games or apps, a message comes up in the form of like im trying to adjust my monitor's settings (aka the buttons on the monitor) that says the frequency is out of range, try other resolutions. Anybody got any ideas. I'm stumped. I was "exploring" my Nvidia graphics options before this happened, dont know if that helps. Thanks!!

SO this is a recent Problem?
Google, download and follow the instructions of Driver Cleaner Pro, then reinstall the latest drivers for your card off the manufacturers Site.

This will most likely fix the problem, If it does not, report back.

try and find a refresh rate overrider. it means the monitor cannot handle the refresh rate being as high as the video card is outputting.

what's your video card?

It would also help if you gave links to your moniter and video card.
Try Apoc suggestion before mine, Lol.

downloaded and am reading the readme and it says:
nVidia:
1. Unplug nic card or modem from net or disconnect
2. Remove nvidia from add/remove programs
3. Reboot into safe mode (F8 during boot up)
4. Disable any AntiVirus Software (If you don't disable is than it could give trouble)
5. Run Cab Cleaner (not needed, but recommended)
6. Run Driver Cleaner
7. Empty recycle bin and reboot
8. Install the new drivers
I'm not too good with computers, and uhh basically what am i doing by doing this?

I found what I think a refresh rate override is in my nvidia settengs, it was on 80 Hertz, set it to 60 hertz and still didn't work...
