"Mode not Supported" upon boot up.


I successfully installed Mandrakelinux 10.1 on my machine already running Windows XP Pro, dual booting. All worked great for about 2 months, until I installed digital camera software (HP) and printer software (Epsom) on the Windows side. Now, whenever I try to boot in Linux, I get the message "Mode Not Supported".

I tried booting in Linux safemode, and following the interactive procedures, but nothing worked. Then I booted from the Linux CD and reinstalled, but that did not fix the problem ... still Mode Not Supported.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Joe

Its most likely trying to use framebuffering or a resolution not supported. Change your vga settings to normal, it'll be different depending on if your using grub or lilo.. etc. Or change your resolution settings for X.

Question

Thanks for the response, but unfortunately nothing changed after I set my display setting back to their previous levels.

Any other suggestions, from anybody?

Thanks

Joe
