Question Monitor Error "Out Of Frequency Range"


I just tried installing Ubuntu 5.04, and when I boot, my *monitor* generates an "Out Of Frequency Range" error.

I'm speculating that the Ubuntu installation process mis-read my monitor frequency specifications. But how can I fix this without a viable monitor?

Unbuntu Live does the same thing for me too.

Ideas?

Thanks in advance!

Joe

Can't even get that far. This error from the monitor happens during the boot, so I can't even get to terminal.

No problem with Knoppix or Fedora, so I'm thinking it's specific to Ubuntu.

... I see this hasn't been resolved. How did you get on?

I suspect the command you were looking for is "vga=ask" to get the live CD to boot.
You could also install the OS

... where they could certainly use any insights you may have gained.

i met same case
first of all
the vertical and horizal fre must be put into proper range.
then you better move your screen resolution into some lower states (like 800x600,1024X768)
last
you have to give ubuntu SOME time
to boot into desktop.

yes, my fedoracore6 and CDlinux work well with screen,
but ubuntu did not.
i tried 3 things of above
then everthing going right
