GUI Problem with Fedora-9

I have installed Fedora9. After installation it asks for reboot. When i rebooted, i got a blank screen showing
Out of Range
92.6kHz / 58kHz
But am able to use CUI, able to login through ctrl+alt+F1..F6, but not ctrl+alt+F7. Fedora8 worked fine. What about this. What shall i do? Kindly any body suggest me.Thank you.

you have to reconfigure Xwindows to use a mode that your monitor will take. type setup and see whether something that will let you.

You need to adjust your xorg.conf settings. Pay attention to your Monitor section:
Section "Monitor"
  Option       "CalcAlgorithm" "XServerPool"
  DisplaySize  376 301
  HorizSync    30-81
  Identifier   "Monitor[0]"
  Option       "DPMS"
  Option       "PreferredMode" "1280x1024"
  VendorName   "SAM"
  VertRefresh  43-75
  UseModes     "Modes[0]"
The HorizSync and VertRefresh entries are problably wrong for your monitor.

Look up your monitor specs or pick a generic monitor type that might be close and use that
as a starting point.

Also, please provide more relevent information, because we aren't psychic. The monitor you have, the display card & relevent portions of your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file.

Plz view my post

Start the system in runlevel 3, use setup command to configure monitor.
OR you can modify xorg.conf file to select the actual HorizSync & VertRefresh.
