A computer screen (both CRT, the TV like monitors, and LCD, the flat panels) can only show so many pixels (the tiny dots that make up EVERYTHING on the screen). This would be the maximum resolution. 480x680, 800x600, 1024x768, and 1280x1024, are the "standard" resolutions. Depending on the physical size of the screen (17", 19", etc.) different resolutions may look better than others. In addition to the resolution the pixels are updated only so many times per second, with a higher setting looking more crisp and readable, this is called a refresh rate, and is measured in hertz (hz). A screen set to 75hz is updated 75 times per second. When a game starts it will default to a preset resolution and refresh rate. If either the resolution or refresh rate is higher or lower than what the monitor can display you will recieve an "Out of Frequency Range" message. An easy way to attempt to fix the problem is to goto Start > Run > Type in "dixdiag" (no quotes), and hit enter > Select the "More Help" tab up at the top > Select "Override" button > Select the check box next to "Override Value" > Type in a value you know your monitor can handle (try 60). If this does not correct the issue, or causes other games to show the same error message redo these steps and select the checkbox next to "Default". Please note this will ONLY affect games that are drawn using the DirectX API, so even if you set it completely wrong it can easily be corrected. voila, i searched it for you on nvidia forums.
