View Full Version : [ubuntu] Out of Scan Range - Radeon 9800 Pro + Sony 200ES

May 8th, 2010, 12:40 PM
Hi guys,

I've just installed LTS 10.04 but, after installing the proprietary ATI drivers I can't access the system at all, it just hangs after loading saying the monitor is out of scan range. This may be because I've broken a pin off my monitor's gfx board socket that enabled the monitor to be recognized by the OS. I remember than in Windows I had to install the drivers from Sony myself in order to get it recognized while it should show automatically on the hardware screen.

I reckon the drivers are trying to set my screen to a higher resolution or refresh rate that the ones it allows and that's returning the error.

Does anyone know how I can fix this problem?

Please keep in mind that I'm a total linux noob : )
