Full Version: "out Of Range" Message
Linuxhelp > Support > Technical Support
i seem to have screwed something usual. anyway, i selected a monitor with a resolution that was apparently too much for my monitor. when i try to boot into linux, my monitor flashes a "out of range" message and i never see the linux desktop. anybody know how i can fix this? thanks in advance.

i thought i should clarify this a little bit more. what i need help on is figuring out what file contains my config info and how do i edit it? i can boot into console mode, so i have that covered. any hints would be appreciated.
The file you want to edit is normally called:

/etc/X11/XF86Config (or XF86Config-4)

You need to look for the following lines:


You will want to get the specs for your specific monitor.

My monitor is a NEC Multisync E1100 ... and my specs are:

       HorizSync    31.0 - 82.0
       VertRefresh  55.0 - 120.0
