Ubuntu :: "Input Signal Out Of Range, Change Settings To 1600 X 900 - 60 MHz"?
I just installed Ubuntu Natty on my desktop which uses an nVidia GeForce 7+ chipset. After installing Ubuntu, I noticed that when the GRUB boot menu should show up, my monitor says "Input signal out of range, change settings to 1600 x 900 - 60Hz", and it stays that way until the Ubuntu desktop shows up. The Ubuntu desktop shows up just fine. It's just that GRUB and Plymouth don't show up and my monitor gives me the aforementioned message.Here's my xorg.conf configuration after I ran the nVidia X Server Settings app:

# nvidia-settings: X configuration file generated by nvidia-settings
# nvidia-settings: version 270.29 (buildd@allspice) Fri Feb 25 14:42:07 UTC 2011

Debian :: "Not Optimum Mode - Recommended Mode 1280 X 1024 60Hz"
I am getting a pop up window saying: "Not optimum mode. Recommended mode 1280 x 1024 60Hz" In my case, this is happening after installing Debian 504 AMD64, the Samsung "SyncMaster 940N" that gives this message or warning was working fine for a few years on another machine under the previous Lenny distro.

The only way to get rid of this unwanted pop-up window (the monitor is working fine) is to press the "AUTO" switch on the monitor, there is no such option in the menu of the monitor to disable anything or change the resolution and it seems to me that, unlike what was suggested as an answer in similar threads, the problem is not with the monitor but with the distro unable to detect the monitor properly. The only mention in the "xorg.conf" file is as follows and running "dpkg reconfigure ..." has no other effect than creating a new exact duplicate of the file.

Identifier"Default Screen"

Debian :: Input Signal Out Of Range?
I have been trying unsuccessfully to load Debian on my desktop. I have tried both live and otherwise. Both AMD64 and i386. It seems to be loading fine and then all of a sudden the monitor quits with a sign Input signal out of range. I have tried lots of other live disks and they have worked fine. My monitor is a Hanns G and my video card is NVIDIA GeForce8200. All other stuff very normal. 4 Gigs of RAM. What?

Fedora :: F12 -- Input Signal Out Of Range?
I recently installed Fedora 12 -- a brand new install, not an upgrade. The system was previously using Fedora 11 without any problems. Fedora 12 installed without any issues, and I haven't really done any customization to it. I am running KDE. The system is hooked up a KVM switch.

When I am on system #2 (a Windows system) and I switch back to system #1 (Fedora) after a few minutes of time, the Fedora screen will be blank and the monitor will present an "input signal out of range" error. I can SSH into the box and kill X to get the screen back. This has not happened on this system with any previous versions of Fedora that had been running on it (everything since Fedora 7).

Ubuntu :: Monitor Input Signal Out Of Range / Fix It?
I basically destroyed my laptop a couple of years ago. Windows XP wouldn't even start but it didn't come with an installation disk. I tried recovering it but it just died. So a few months ago I put a box of thing on top of it which broke the screen! I was going to chuck it out until I stumbled upon a page which told you you could use it as a web server.

I decided to use it to host my website. I installed ubuntu without a problem however it wasn't until I was about to start it up I found out it was against BT's terms and conditions!! So since I installed ubuntu I thought I might as well make use of it and use it to render my files. When I went to turn it on for the second time and plugged it into the monitor it said input signal out of range!

I can see the login screen but I can't move the mouse or anything. I can't access the terminal, how can fix this?

Ubuntu :: Black Screen After Booting - Input Signal Out Of Range
i installed a program called start-up manager. i fiddled with the display settings cause on startup of the computer my boot screens and etc were out of wack placed halfway across the screen and really pixelated. after changing the resoloution i restarted and just after booting everything goes black and it comes up with the input signal is out of range. ive tried to run livecd or live usb i should say as its on a usb stick. and search for commands to repair my screen settings but cant. ive tried to run grub cause i heard its a repair console by pressing and holding shift it doesnt work ive tried to ctrl alt f2 and other commands during start up non of them work. they all just result in that message popping up.

there is no repair console for me to access during start up. i just want to roll back to before i did this when everything was working. also half the commands given on other threads come up with error messages saying commands were wrong and such. and ive also started up bios to try and change display settings for it to magically work so i can login and change my settings back and nothing happens. im using another computer at the moment to find results.

Ubuntu :: "Input Signal Out Of Range" When Booting?
I have a HP w1907 monitor and when I boot my PC and get to BURG, the monitor shows the the "input signal is out of range" and to change settings to 1440 x 900 and 60 ghz. This message won't go away until I select an OS to boot. The message blocks the the center of BURG where I select the OS but I can still select the Os although the image is partly blocked by the "Input Signal Out of Range" message. Using BURG-Manager I set the Resolution to 1440 x 900 but I still get the message.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 11.04 - Signal Out Of Range On Boot Up
I installed edubuntu 11.04 a couple months ago on the kids computer. Everytime we would boot up, we received the signal out of range during the entire boot sequence. However once the login screen showed up, we could see the desktop fine. However, now it will not display anything from the time grub loads it is just Signal out of range. I even let it sit for about 10 minutes. I can boot from the live cd fine...but I'm not sure what to change. How can I fix this issue from the live cd?

Ubuntu :: Fixing Plymouth Screen - Lucid - Signal Out Of Range?
I followed the instructions given at for fixing my ugly plymouth screen after installing Nvidia drivers. All worked as expected. However I made some modifications in the instructions as I required.

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nomodeset video=uvesafb:mode_option=1280x1024-24,mtrr=3,scroll=ywrap
I used 1366*768 instead of 1280*1024.

Ubuntu :: Stop (when Loading) Looking For Wifi Signal's In The 5000000 Khz Range?
Does anyone know how to stop ubuntu (when loading) looking for wifi signal's in the 5000000 khz range? I have a problem with other devices around my house that operate on this range of frequencies and it effects ubuntu while its booting, to the extent that it won�t load. My wireless router is on the 2000000 khz range therefore I only really need Ubuntu to look for devices on this range of frequencies. If anyone know a way to prevent Ubuntu looking on the 5000000 khz range by editing something I would be very greatful to know how to do this.

As at the moment I am having to boot about 5 times until it eventually decided to load. Sometimes the only way I can get in, is by going into recovery mode, dropping to terminal and typing in: "sudo gdm" and eventually I get it. Which is a right pain. Please see my previous post outlining my problem: [URL]

General :: Change The SIGNAL Done When Ulimit Is Reached?
I would like to use ulimit -St <some number> to stop a process form running once the process has exceeded the amount of CPU time specified in the ulimt arg.

I have been able to get ulimit -t (or -Ht) to kill my process, but I need the signal to be something other than 9 and other than SIGXCPU.

Is there a way to have ulimit issue a kill -<somthing else> when the cpu time specified has been exceeded?

Ubuntu Installation :: No Signal Input On Display?
Have a Compaq Presario SR1915AN desktop with a NVIDIA GeForce 6150 LE it has a dual boot of Windows XP and Debian 5.0.6 which would only run in 800x600 mode.I decided to install Ubuntu 10.10 Desktop as this is what is on another different machine, thought it would be safe.The install wouldn't work, I would get the purple selections screen and first time chose the normal graphic mode, 10 seconds or so in to the install the scrren goes dead and i see the "No Signal Input" display show on the screen. Rebooted and selected text mode install, this time it fully installed but on reboot it again has the screen goes dead 10 seconds after you select from the Grub screen.

Fedora Installation :: Graphic Adapter - No Input Signal ?
I had the following problem while i installed fedora on my machine: The boot record was normally read from the installation CD and the boot screen appear, (up to this moment my Graphic Adapter is going fine) then i select the first option (which is the default as well) to boot fedora from the CD, and suddenly my monitor inform me that there is no input signal. I think it might be some driver problem, but my adapter is pretty common i think (NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT), so its not very likely.

Things i have to note:
1. My Adapter is working on my Windows installation.
2. I manage to install fedora by removing my GeForce 9600 GT and using the on board Graphical Card from my main board.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can Not Run Live Cd Monitor Input Out Of Range?
this has happened with a few different attempts of ubuntu based distros lately ... i try to boot a live cd it gets to where it starts loading and the monitor pops off and says input out of range ... im aware that this is a known bug with xorg choosing either the wrong resolution or refresh rate ... but what the heck are we supposed to do , i can't get far enough into the boot process that i can open a terminal and try to bypass xorg ... so will all future distributions of ubuntu just be out of the question for me ? if you ask me what needs to be done is make the installer ASK what resolution you want to attempt to boot at .... similar to what puppy does

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Change Stereo Mic Input To Mono Input?
I recently got a real fancy unidirectional microphone, but when I go and use it, something strange happens. The mic is a mono mic, but when I record something, it appears to think it's stereo. Instead of having the same thing on both channels, it puts it all in the left channel, and silence on the right channel.

I tried fiddling with alsamixer. In capture (F4), adjusting the "Capture" device has an effect. However, it doesn't do anything useful. Lowering the right channel to zero does nothing, lowering the left channel to zero creates silence, and disabling the right channel creates silence.

In my System>Preferences>Sound (or pavucontrol, or what-have-you), there are "Analog Stereo Input" and "Analog Stereo Duplex" options there, but no "Analog Mono Input" or "Analog Stereo Output + Analog Mono Input" options (the latter being ideal).

Something interesting, though, if I do this:
arecord -r 96000 -D pulse -c 1 -vv -V mono /dev/null
it works correctly and outputs on both channels. But if I do
arecord -r 96000 -D pulse -c 2 -vv -V stereo /dev/null
then it's back to the same behavior. The VU meter on the second command shows the left channel going up and down as I make noise, but the right one always at zero.

The machine does have a crap internal mic built in to the screen bezel. If I do either of the above commands, they both work correctly. The stereo VU shows the same activity for both channels.

The machine is a Eee 1015PED, which has Intel integrated sound. Something probably insignificant is that the mic has a 1/4 inch mono plug, and to get it to plug into the Eee, I needed to get a 1/4 female to 1/8 male adapter. The mic's 1/4 plug is mono (duh) and therefore two-conductor, but the adapter I got is stereo, or three conductor (L, R, GND). I don't know if this is tripping something in hardware to tell it it's stereo or something.

I tried the mic on my desktop, which has a SB Audigy 4 (the non-pro flavor) and that has the "Analog Mono Input" function, so that works fine. Is there some way to turn this stereo input into mono input?
