MSI "Out of Range" error/bug

Getting an “out of range” error on my monitor every time I try to boot WIII,R. I can hear game audio, but the screen then goes black. I tried adjusting the properties of the game but no luck. Any help?

You probably need to manually edit the game settings file, War3Preferences.txt, in documents so that it outputs at a resolution and refresh rate supported by your display. It must be defaulting to an unsupported resolution or refresh rate.

The file seems to be a human friendly key value based file where each line has a key, the field describing what the value is, and a value. I suggest consulting the technical manual for your display to see what resolution and refresh rates are supported. Alternatively if you set it to run in windowed mode (likely windowmode controls this) then it will work although with the disadvantages of using windowed mode.
