I just DL'd a game and when i go to open it i get a black screen with a white box in it that says
"Out Of Frequency Range" and under that
"H: 166.0KHz V: 240.3 Hz"

What does this mean and how do i fix it?

Either your screen, or agp card doesn't support the resolution.

is there anyway to fix it so it will?

Sounds like the refresh rates for a monitor, but then at least the vertical refresh is way too high (usually this is below 100Hz).

The game i Dl'd is Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines. Its a legal DL and I have entered the verification code to activate the game. When i click on the icon to start the game I get the black screen with what i posted above on it. When I hit menu on my monitor it says H: 48.4 KHz, V: 60.0 Hz. Is there any way to adjust this so that the numbers will match? I'm really not that computer savvy so any help will be greatly appreciated.

Yeh, try searching the game companies support site, usually helps.
