Hardware :: Ubuntu On A Samsung Display - "Mode Not Supported"

I thought I would try out Ubuntu and downloaded v9.10 and installed within Windows to test it out. But when it came to restarting my computer to finish the install, it would not display anything and just displayed "Mode Not Supported" on my screen (Samsung LE26R87). I did a bit of looking around and tried to see if I could find anything to help, but as I'm new to Ubuntu I could not find anything which I could understand.

Debian :: Console Display Mode Not Supported?
I've just tried to install X on my new debian system which had a nasty side effect.
I can see the bootcycle up to "Waiting for /dev to be fully populated." and then the screen switches into a display mode unsupported by my display. I've had problems like this many times before because the display returns it's capabable of resolutions like 2048x1536, which it just isnt. I've had to disable autodetection whenever using this display. One thing to note thought is that it's NOT X that's messing up the display. It's setting the wrong display mode even before the filesystems are mounted. And I've already uninstalled X with no change either. Also recovery(single user) mode has no proper display output either.

what is setting my display to the wrong mode?

Hardware :: ATI Radeon And Samsung TV - Unsupported Video Mode
I had planned to use my Samsung LED-TV (UE40B6000) as a secondary display connected to the DVI port (my 5:4 display is connected to the VGA port). But there are only two modes I can get it to work with: 1280x1024@60Hz and 1280x1024@75Hz. _All_ of the other modes produce a "unsupported video mode" on the TV screen. Now here's the thing, it works fine under Windows, I can easily set the LED-TV to 1920x1080@60Hz as described in the TV's manual, i.e. just choose the settings under Windows (no extra driver required). So, I thought I might have messed up my Ubuntu system some way. I tried with both Ubuntu 10.04 and openSUSE 11.3 live CDs producing the exact same results - only 1280x1024 produces a picture.

I switched modes using the "gnome-display-properties" tools which reports a Samsung Electric Company 7" display offering all the modes it should (incl. 1920x1080@60). As this didn't work I used xrandr to switch with the same results. After that I started fiddling with a /etc/xorg.conf file for the better part of last night with ModeLines and suggestions (gtf ...) from all across the internet, too numerous for me to remember, especially since I basically took whatever came along (not a very structured approach - I know, but I got somewhat desperate). Nothing worked, nothing at all.

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc R480 [Radeon X800 GTO (PCIE)]

Ubuntu :: Video Mode Not Supported ?
I have windows 7 64 bits and i'm trying to install ubuntu 10.04 amd64. The installation was good but when i'm trying to boot on ubuntu i have a black screen with a message "mode not supported".

I've looked for the problem on google. The solution is to change the frequency of the monitor. Mine supports only 75htz max and on the error message I have 77htz, what's why it's not supported.

The problem that to change the frequency for lunux i have to be logged in linux in order to type commands in the terminal.

But I can't see a thing, only the message about the mode not supported, so I can't type anything.

I found some solutions here but i can't do what they ask, because I can't boot and the message doesn't disappear. [url]

Ubuntu :: Video Mode Not Supported / Get It To Work?
Tried to install the ATI proprietary drivers (fglrx), but when I boot up, all I get is "Video Mode Not Supported". I suspect my refresh rate or resolution is the problem, but I don't know how to change it from the terminal (ctrl-alt-f1)

Hardware :: Display MacBook Pro On Samsung Television With Fedora?
I have a MacBookPro5,1 laptop, and I have installed the 64-bit version of Fedora 12 on it, in addition to the Mac OS X operating system. When I'm running Mac OS X, I can connect my 720p Samsung television to the computer through its mini DVI port and the computer will go into a mode that will display on the television.

However, when I'm running Fedora and connect the television nothing happens. What can be done to allow the laptop to display on the television when it is using Fedora?

Ubuntu Servers :: 11.04 I386 B2 Display Not Supported?
Installed Server 11.04 Beta 2/i386 on one of my HP DL/380 G3's. Install went fine, until first boot.Then the monitor showed the "not supported display mode".No GUI installed.Machine is up, as I can ssh into it just fine.. Not that I really need a console anyway..I know this has to do with Grub's display mode.. but it's apparently not detecting correctly.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Error - Kernel: [time] Sisfb: Mode 'none' Not Supported Anymore. Using Default
I have just upgraded to 11.3 and work in icewm (I have kde apps installed but no other desktops). When I boot up the computer it gives me this console error message:

kernel: [time] sisfb: Mode 'none' not supported anymore. Using default.
kernel: [time] sisfb: Fatal error: Unable to reserve 16MB framebuffer memory
kernel: [time] sisfb: Is there another framebuffer driver active?
Apart from that I'm not exactly sure what the problem is. The computer isn't displaying immediate symptoms to me. I checked the hardware sticky and when I have a few hours I can work through

HTML Code: but I don't have that kind of time at the moment, so I wanted to check that that was the route I should be going down before I did. I googled this stuff but everything seems to start from a knowledge base above mine and leaves me clueless.

Ubuntu :: DVI: Cannot Display This Mode Message On Monitor
I have a Dell monitor attached to a Dell laptop. I am using Ubuntu 10.04 x64.

Latitude E6500 : Intel Core 2 Duo P8800(2.66GHz,1066MHz,3MB)
Base Options : 256MB Nvidia Quadro NVS 160M Graphic Card 1 S
Display : 15.4in Widescreen WUXGA (1920X1200) 2CCFL
Dell 2001FP (attached using DVI)

When I try to boot into Ubuntu with the monitor attached I get a DVI: Cannot Display this Mode message on my monitor. I can boot into Ubuntu just fine if I detach the monitor. Have tried with VGA, but to no avail. I have the latest and greatest Nvidia drivers downloaded from the Nvidia web site. Googling indicates that this is a Dell problem, however, I am not sure about this. It worked just fine on my previous laptop (IBM T61) and Ubuntu 9.10, so I guess it has to do with the laptop and not Ubuntu 10.04.

Ubuntu :: Cannot Display Video Mode (after Update)
I am running a dual boot system. I have XP on one HD and Ubuntu 10.04 on the other. No problems. I boot back and forth all the time. Then came along Natty. Now I tried to boot over, and I get "Cannot display this video mode". I have it set up that when I restart, if im away from the computer, Ubuntu starts by default. So it eventually starts in ubuntu. But the screen where I used to be able to choose which operating system to boot into is now replaced with "Cannot display this video mode".

I am not wireless, and nothing has changed as far as hard wear. The monitor is some old Dell that worked perfectly fine with 10.04. I tried changing my resolution and settings to every different one, and restart, and still no dice.

To sum it up, after my update to Natty, when I reboot, my OS selection screen is no longer visible. Its now replaced by "Cannot display this video mode".

So now it seems, what ever setting this screen is running on, XP dont like it..... because of Natty?

I gotta get some work done in XP, so right now im screwed. My CRT is currently sitting outside in the rain. Or I would try it.

Ubuntu :: Analog Input Cannot Display Video Mode
My problem is on bootup and shut down I get: analog input cannot display this video mode. I've got a dell monitor nvidia graphics card. Don't really know how to provide much more info than that. From what I've searched on the net is that it probably has to do with the refresh rate.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: A Bug In The Display Off Mode Energy Conservation
After installing Ubuntu 10.10 on a laptop Acer Aspire 5942G graphics card ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650, some time after the boot falls color monitor. Color depth is only 65000 colors or more. In all settings, all is well (and the color depth is there spelled 24bit). Color depth is reduced at some time after a reboot. After further experiments with the screensaver was set: color spoils the energy saving mode and turn off the display!After disabling the option "disable display through .." color is now always saved in the norm!

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Cannot Display This Video Mode After Grub Screen
I use natty 64 bit. I installed a HD 4870. Installed the drivers according to instruction on [URL]. I ran aticonfig --initial. Still I get "Cannot Display This video Mode" after the grub screen, during boot up. Monitor preferences applet doesn't seem to work, either - it won't detect the monitor parameters EDID thing.

When I try to open the Catalyst Control Centre I get:
p, li { white-space: pre-wrap; } "There was a problem initializing Catalyst Control Center Linux edition. It could be caused by the following.
No ATI graphics driver is installed, or the ATI driver is not functioning properly.
Please install the ATI driver appropriate for you ATI hardware, or configure using aticonfig."

Here are chunks of xorg log (I cut the non video bits).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Change To Display Resolution In Presentation Mode?
I am on Lucid 10.04 with Nvidia 9600m (v195.36.24) My TV is 1280x720, my Laptop is 1600x900 (Closest setting to the TV is 1360x768 ). I plug my laptop to my tv via an HDMI cable. I press F1 to get into my presentation mode, and the tv shows most of the desktop, but not all of it. Is there any way to conveniently make it so it automatically sets it to 1280x720?

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 64bit Low Graphics Mode Cannot Get Display To Work
I had some crackling sound I thought I would remove some ALSA drivers and re-install them. Somehow, in the process, my computer rebooted itself and I am stuck with the classic "ubuntu is running in low-graphics mode".

Attempting to actually get graphics does not work. A CTRL-ALT-F7 yeilds the ubuntu loading screen with dots filling but it stays there eternally. I can however access my console login and am able to execute terminal commands.

I have tried a few things to no avail such as:

sudo apt-get update
sudp apt-get install nvidia-current

I run a Nvidia Geforce250.

General :: Display With No Signals And Go In Sleep Mode After Update
Linux downloaded new updates and worked perfectly. Next time I started mint, just before the login screen appears display says No Signal and goes in sleep mode. I think that mint downloaded somekind of display driver update wich is not compatible with my driver card. I can't see desktop, I just hear the login sound and that's all. What should I do? I'm new with linux.
