Strange Displayer Information Box


Hi,

I have a dual-boot computer, one is the windows xp another is the ubuntu 8.04 which upgraded from ubuntu 7.10. After I click the grub boot menu item: the most recent ubuntu kernel 2.6.24-21, I got the following image: http://picasaweb.google.com/cholyjoe...06708011160434

The characters in the above image is Chinese's characters that means the Vertical sync frequency exceeds the limit 86Hz (Normal is 55Hz to 75Hz).

I try to use different screen resolution but cannot resolve it. But I find if I use the ubuntu recovery mode or others include windows xp to boot the computer it is OK; The problem seems that has been caused by ubuntu 2.6.24-21 kernel. I need helps or advice to this problem.

Here is my xorg.conf file:
Quote:
# /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

I would suggest making a backup copy of xorg.conf, then reconfiguring:

dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

There have been substantial changes in X between Ubuntu 7.10 and 8.04.

Hi, pinniped,

Thank you for your reply.

I had used dpkg-reconfigure, but the Displayer Information Box always be shown when I reboot the computer.
