View Full Version : Ubuntu won't display of my monitor

May 14th, 2007, 12:40 AM
I installed everything ok, I booted linux up, got the ubuntu splash screen with load bar, but then the screen goes blank and a monitor notification says "video out of range.change display to 1600x1200"

My video card is NVIDIA GeForce 6800 on a Dell XPS 600. Any ideas on how to fix this?

remove "splash" from c:\wubi\boot\grub\menu.lst, won't be as pretty but it should work. Then once in Ubuntu there shuould be some setting for changing usplash res, after which you regenerate the usplash initrd "sudo dpkg-reconfigure usplash" and put back splash into menu.lst.

I tried what you said, but still no dice. I booted into generic kernel, my screen goes blank for a few seconds, and then a screen of crazy coloured lines.

Maybe I should wait for the stable version, because I have had absolutely no liuck with this.
