Those messages are incomplete. Please quote exact errors.

Make sure that /etc/X11/xorg.conf is appropriate for your display. "out of range" errors usually mean that refresh rates and/or resolutions are bad.

Try just running startx after login.

whenever the system is restarted following errors appear on the screen.

Out of frequency range

Attention
Out of range
H:26.9 KHz V:42.8 Hz


and the system becomes un responsive i.e it would not let you to enter at any console.

Out put from vi /etc/X11/xorg.conf is given below



Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse0"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "yes"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Monitor0"
VendorName "Monitor Vendor"
ModelName "Dell E773c"

VertRefresh 50.0 - 160.0
Option "dpms"
EndSection

That looks like an error from the monitor not the OS.
Certainly don't look anything like the errors reported in post #1.
What kind of monitor is this?

Edit xorg.conf and change the monitor section so it looks like this:
Code:
Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Monitor0"
VendorName "Monitor Vendor"
ModelName "Dell E773c"
#HorizSync 30.0 - 70.0
#VertRefresh 50.0 - 160.0
Option "dpms"
EndSection
But the one you sent looks incomplete. Where, for eg, is the screen section? The server section? etc.
