Display Problems - Help Needed


Hi...

I am a total newbie to Linux and I am unable to get my display to function properly. I just installed Mandrake 9.0 (dual boot with Windows XP). I have an NVIDIA GForce 4 MX graphics card.

I thought I had selected the correct driver during the install, but now when I try to get into KDE or any other GUI I get an error saying that the display signal is out of range for my monitor.

I can get into the regular text driven linux (bash?) but I have no clue how to fix the settings or correct this problem. Please help...I am anxious to get this fixed.

Thanks,
Matt.

that happens because you either chose a resolution that your monitor doesn't support or you chose the refresh rates wrong. run Xconfigurator and fix it.
