Last response: in Graphics & Displays

I keep trying to play crysis 3, and every time I start the game the monitor goes black and displays a message "out of range" and I then I have to reset my computer. I have the most up to date drivers for my video card, the game worked fine around 2 hours ago. The settings for the game were left at 1920x1080 and 60hz, which is what the monitor is supposed to be able to do. I tried starting the game in compatibility mode and with a lowered resolution and still I am left with a black screen and that damn message! Any help would be greatly appreciated. Other games work just fine, it just seems to be crysis.

Hey bro. If your still reading this.. Change your refresh rate.. Your monitor might be clocked beyond its standard refresh rate.

the monitor has a fixed refresh rate, and the refresh rate in game in set at 60hz, this happens now in Civilization 5 too, the crysis problem literally just magically fixed itself

It might not have "fixed" refresh rate I just assumed because in the options menu on the monitor you can not adjust it and when I change the settings in the catalyst control center it just automatically reverts to the 60hz it is set at.
