Analog Input: Cannot Display This Video Mode


I just installed Debian Etch, but when I boot into it, after it loads everything, my monitor says "Analog Input: Cannot Display This Video Mode." How do I fix this? I have a Dell 1907FP LCD Monitor

Here you go:

# /etc/X11/xorg.conf (xorg X Window System server configuration file)
#
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.
#
# Edit this file with caution, and see the /etc/X11/xorg.conf manual page.
# (Type "man /etc/X11/xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
#
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
# package.
#
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
# again, run the following command:
# sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

Try commenting out the HorizSync and VertRefresh and see what happens.

While you are getting the "Analog Input: Cannot Display This Video Mode." error message, hold down Ctrl and ALT and hit Backspace until you get a display. Wait a few seconds between hits as it may take some time to cycle through your display settings.

DUH (sorry, I guess it's time for more coffee) It should be CTRL-ALT-+

CTRL-ALT-BKSP kills X, and then it will restart in the same mode.

Have you tried the nvidia driver?

You could try setting the FlatPanel and/or CrtcNumber options (see the nv man page). If you want 3d support though, you'll need the nvidia driver.

What happens if you hit CTRL-ALT-F1? (Note, if you can get a login prompt that way, then CTRL-ALT-F7 (or another F key near 7) will get you back.
