Graphic problem on startup

Postby jovica888 » Fri Jun 17, 2011 12:38 am

I don't have boot screen. My display tells me "Out of range". I have BENQ 22" FullHD and GrCard Nvidia 6100 on board (my system works good - drivers ok).
I saw in grub that it is set to be 640x480 so I don't know does my monitor able to work on this resolution

On Page 29 of the Manual for the monitor:

No image can be seen:
Is the prompt on the display illuminated in green?
If the LED is illuminated in green and there is a message “Out of Range” on the screen, this means
you are using a display mode that this monitor does not support, please change the setting to one
of the supported mode.

Here is the link also to the manual.. http://www.vtoc.se/pdf/CA314095-B8E1-4C ... 667BEA.pdf

You can also edit Grub to display a higher more compatible resolution if the standard VGA mode of 640x480 is an issue for this monitor which it seems to be..

When I run Live DVD everything is ok until first boot from HDD

I think this is my graphic card problem because I put MSI R5450 with ATI chipset and everything is ok.
ATM I have GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 on Board.

Can u suggest me any solution except changing my graphic card?

This is the worst support ever

I found solution. My grub file need to look like this

Code: Select all
# If you change this file, run 'update-grub' afterwards to update
# /boot/grub/grub.cfg.
# For full documentation of the options in this file, see:
#   info -f grub -n 'Simple configuration'

GRUB_DEFAULT="0"
#GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT="0"
GRUB_BACKGROUND="/boot/grub/splash-image.png"
GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT_QUIET="true"
GRUB_TIMEOUT="10"
GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR="`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian`"
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"
#GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="nomodeset"

# Uncomment to enable BadRAM filtering, modify to suit your needs
# This works with Linux (no patch required) and with any kernel that obtains
# the memory map information from GRUB (GNU Mach, kernel of FreeBSD ...)
#GRUB_BADRAM="0x01234567,0xfefefefe,0x89abcdef,0xefefefef"

# Uncomment to disable graphical terminal (grub-pc only)
#GRUB_TERMINAL="console"

# 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="1024x768x16"

# Uncomment if you don't want GRUB to pass "root=UUID=***" parameter to Linux
#GRUB_DISABLE_LINUX_UUID="true"

# Uncomment to disable generation of recovery mode menu entries
#GRUB_DISABLE_RECOVERY="true"

# Uncomment to get a beep at grub start
#GRUB_INIT_TUNE="480 440 1"

export GRUB_MENU_PICTURE="splash-image.png"
export GRUB_COLOR_NORMAL="light-gray/black"
export GRUB_COLOR_HIGHLIGHT="white/black"
