MacOS: Screen resolution - Out of range

December 2016



Issue


While trying to change the resolution on my Mac,the following error message is being displayed: "Out of range". Rebooting in safe mode but the problem still persists. How to revert to previous resolution?

Solution


No need to go through Safe-Mode
- Start the Mac
- Give it sufficient time to load the desktop
- Press CTRL + SPACE (opens spotlight)
- Type "System Preferences"
- Press the Enter key (you are now in the System Preferences window)
- Type "Displays"
- Press the Enter key (you are now in the Displays settings window)
- Press the Tab key
- Use the Down/up arrow keys to change resolution
