I played in Beta without any issues. However, now when game starts my screen goes black and says the vertical and horizontal values are outside range. I do not see any way to adjust game settings outside the game client running. Any advice? My screen Resolution is 1400x 900 60mhz

As per this thread:

Quote:
Some people can get in to the game by modifying the default Fullscreen option. To do so, locate the client_defaults.ini file located in the installation directory of the game. By default it is located at:
  • For 32 bit Operating Systems - C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\BioWare\Star Wars - The Old Republic\swtor\retailclient
  • For 64 bit Operating Systems - C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\BioWare\Star Wars - The Old Republic\swtor\retailclient
Open the file in a text editor and modify the value FullScreen=true to FullScreen=false.
Save the file and try restarting the game.
Hope that helps?

Heres what worked for me, tip I got from surfing this forum some. (thank you "sorn")

Go into the file "client_defaults" and change "FullScreen=true" to "FullScreen=false"

That lets you start the game in windowed mode, then change the refreshrate from 100 to 60 witch your screen should be able to accept.
Exit game, and change back the "FullScreen=false" to "FullScreen=true" again.
Start the game again and smile over the succes (hopefully)
