I am having the same issue. The fix above allows me to get to the sign in screen but when I sign in it get the out of range message again. can some one help??I just had this problem too. It happened when I updated from 10.10 to 11.04 so that might be a good place to look for the solution...
What I did was I opened my Grub config in /etc/default/grub (You may need to open this with sudo with the following command:)Code:sudo gedit /etc/default/grub
Then find the line with
Un-comment the last line and change it to a supported resolution for your monitor.Code:# The resolution used on graphical terminal # note that you can use only modes which your graphic card supports via VBE # you can see them in real GRUB with the command `vbeinfo' #GRUB_GFXMODE=640*400
(I used 800*600, and pretty much any resolution below 1024*786 should work.)
Then the last thing you need to do is typeand it will automatically update your Grub configuration files.Code:sudo update-grub
