After detecting hardware & configuring DHCP, when UBUNTU started to load ,at the last step i.e. starting Gnome Display Manager "Out of range message shows".It happens with both Knoppix & Ubuntu .
I tried at friends pc.Both worked well .If there is a problem of onboard display card then it should have to be happened with Xp sp2.But there is no problem.

My config. P3 1ghz. ,Asus motherboard ,256 sd ram ,sony dvd rw ,Bestec 120.

In most cases this means that the hsync/vsync and/or resolution specifies in your x config file is out of range of what your monitor can display.
