Ubuntu :: After Upgrade - Display - Getting A Small Box On Screen Saying OUT OF RANGE

Apr 30, 2011

I have just spent hours upgrading 10.10 to 11.04 Natty and when I rebooted at the end, all I'm getting is a small box on screen saying OUT OF RANGE.

I do not have grub or windows or anything else to boot into, ubuntu was my main system, what can I do?

I have just tried another monitor and get the same thing.

Is there anyway I can boot in safe mode or something?

I am able to boot PC with a live CD (Karmic) but cant acess most of my files because I am not the owner apparently? Cant change permissions either?

Is there a way I can change something using the live CD so that Natty will boot properly?

Ubuntu :: Display Out Of Range After Installing Latest Version

Aug 4, 2010

I have reloaded windows xp and now after installing ubuntu latest version, I get a boot menu that gives options. if I select the Ubuntu option, within a few seconds(2)the monitor shows "out of range"! However it is possible to get a command prompt from this menu,(Grub)by pressing "C" then Tab, which lists about 30 commands! But I cannot find what command will overide the ubuntu boot display setting! yet if it is possible in the disc boot F6 menu, then it follows that it must be possible in the hard disk boot menu? (ie nomodeset available on the disk F6, so using F6-nomodeset on the disk allows me to install or run from the disk, which then runs perfectly) Only I cannot make changes in the Ubuntu live that runs direct from the disk, to the installation on the hard drive. My Monitors Max is 75hz 1280x1024, LCD. And although not the latest model, Its still relatively current. Windows from the boot menu works fine.

Fedora Hardware :: Netbook's Display Too Small

Jun 1, 2011

I'm running F15 on a netbook with a 1024x600 pixel display. For some things, this is too small - not high enough.

For example, when setting up Evolution (btw, why do I need to set up a mail-client to use my calendar? ) the forward and other buttons fall off, even though there's in all screens plenty of space to resize... I can guess how to go "Forward" with the tab-button. However, later on, I can't enter the server details, because they too fall off the bottom of the screen.

How can I fix it so that (one of the options below will suffice):

a) I can zoom the desktop (out! I know how to make everything bigger, but that doesn't help) so it all becomes visible, albeit very small?

b) Resize the evolution setup screen - et al?

c) Find another way to make it all visible?

The attached screenshot is just for illustration; this is what I see.

Debian Hardware :: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950M And 4k Display - Small Icons / Windows And Texts

Mar 5, 2016

I have recently bought a new notebook, an ASUS K501UX, and I have encountered some problems installing Debian 8.3 on it.

In fact, already during the installation process it looks like there are some problems with the video card (NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950M), since the lower part of the screen is just black (even if it still "exists", that is the mouse can go "behind" it and click the "next" or "cancel" buttons which are "covered" by the black stripe): [URL] ....

This problem persists also after the installation. Furthermore, since the screen has a 4k resolution (3640x2160) all icons, windows and texts are painfully small: [URL] ....

As you can see, however, if I take a screenshot all the desktop is visualized. This is what the screen actually looks like in the lower part: [URL] ....

I tried changing the resolution from the Settings, but apart from 3640x2160 no other options are available. Furthermore, the display is labelled as "Unknown display": [URL] ....

I then tried to change it with xrandr, but the output of xrandr command is the following:

Code: Select allxrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default
Screen 0: minimum 3840 x 2160, current 3840 x 2160, maximum 3840 x 2160
default connected primary 3840x2160+0+0 0mm x 0mm
   3840x2160      0.00*

I then looked around the web, and found that this is a problem related to the video card driver. So, I followed the DebianWiki on the subject to install the driver, namely I installed the nvidia-driver package and then configured xorg with nvidia-xconfig. However, rebooting Debian, all I got is a blank screen with a flashing pointer, and xserver not working at all (if I press Alt+F3 and login and then try startx I get a long list of deadly-sounding errors like "screen not found").

What should I do? Should I try installing the drivers from the NVIDIA website? I've read (also in the DebianWiki) that this can cause problems to the system. Or is it really a driver problem? Why doesn't it detect the screen?

Ubuntu :: Screen Out Of Range?

May 5, 2011

My screen is always telling me "signal out of range. 75.0 KHz / 60 Hz when I have my graphic card driver installed.

I don't know how to solve that and I've been trying new things for nearly 2 weeks.I have tried the same thimgs in ubuntu 10.10, 9.10 and 9.04 but with no results.

Ubuntu :: GNOME Screen Is Too Small

Apr 13, 2011

I use Ubuntu 10.10 with both Gnome and KDE desktops. My default screen res is 1366x768, and there is no problem with KDE, Gnome indicates that my res is the same but everything on the screen looks too large. When I lunch an app like GIMP I can't see the inmenu icons, it's not a pain to die but sometimes makes work harder. At first I told it was the way Gnome looks (I have never before run linux on such a high res), but when I boot another distro like Debian everything is OK. Also my display mode is locked to laptop screen and can't be changed.I like my Gnome screen and don't want to move to KDE.

Ubuntu Installation :: Screen Resolution Out Of Range?

Jun 5, 2010

I upgraded to ubuntu 10.4 and now my screen says out of range. I can hear my normal login noises. sounds like I am working blind. after I log in I cannot do anything without knowing whats going on. I tried ctrl-alt + to try to change screen resolution but I cant tell if it pops up. nothing new happens. I cant slave my hard drive to my other windows or linux OS or linux Live CD, it tells me I dont have permission to open files so I can rescue my files. DO I have to buy a new graphics card or new monitor?

Ubuntu :: Splash Screen 'Out Of Range' Since 11.04 Update

Apr 30, 2011

Since updating to 11.04, the splash screen is coming up as 'Out of Range'. It hasn't really been a problem until now, as it is no longer booting properly, and I can't see what is going wrong (leaving it hanging out of range)!

I can boot fine from a live usb, is there any config files I can edit to change the resolution?

Ubuntu Installation :: Getting Out Of Range Message On Screen?

Sep 1, 2011

I just installed the latest version of Ubuntu on an external disk (500gb) giving 12gb to Ubuntu.
After the installation process finished I did reboot. When BIOS loaded instead of the Ubuntu boot screen a message from the monitor presented like this:
out of range
So I suppose that there must be a monitor problem or something.

Ubuntu :: Black Screen With Small Terminal - No GUI

Apr 23, 2011

A friend of mine said he could make my system faster and preceded to kill some processes. I have no idea if that is related but my computer worked fine until I shut it down for a while. When I went back and turned it on it gives me a screen is mostly black with the terminal in the top left corner. If I type "exit" it takes me to the Ubuntu login screen with the colorful background and all. If I sign in it takes me right back to the previous described screen. I dont think it has anything to do with the graphics card or driver because on the login screen and even on the black screen I have a cursor. Plus using nano to view the Xorg log I saw no errors. I have also in desperation removed all Xorg.conf files and remade them and I have tried startx. dont tell me I should backup all my files and pop in an image disk and go from scratch

Fedora :: KDE 4.4 Post Upgrade - Small Or Broken Icons

Mar 16, 2010

I would like to ask whether somebody has had the similar experience after KDE 4.4 upgrade.
1. From the attached picture you can see that an icon for xine has a different size. When I change it manually and align the icon, it has previous status after the restart. If I delete that icon and recreate it again, it's smaller than other icons. Icon size for desktop is set up to 32, Desktop Activity.
2. Minimizing/maximizing e.g. Firefox breaks all icons in task bar. I am able to refresh only Firefox/Thunderbird icons.

What can cause these issues? Maybe:
1. my nouveau driver
2. bugs in KDE 4.4.
3. my theme

Debian :: GTK Fonts Extremely Small After Upgrade To Lenny / Sort It?

Jul 23, 2010

I finally got around to upgrading from etch to lenny. After having upgraded, I find that the fonts are extremely small in all gtk applications (iceweasel, abiword, gnumeric, etc.)

Everything looked fine before the upgrade, but now the application fonts in the menu bars, dialogs, etc. are so small as to be unreadable. Also, when I open up gnumeric spreadsheets the fonts in the cells are unreadable. All my X-based applications (rxvt, xfig, xmms, etc.) look just fine, it's just the GTK apps that have the font problems.

Interestingly, web pages themselves render just fine in iceweasel. Also, abiword documents look fine even though the menus, dialogs, etc. are too small to read.

I was able to get a workaround for the application fonts. I put the following in ~/.gtkrc-2.0 code...

At 24 point the fonts are still a bit on the small side, though. And I still have problems reading information in the gnumeric cells.

I use the fvwm window manager without gnome or kde.

Ubuntu :: Black Screen After Booting - Input Signal Out Of Range

Aug 27, 2010

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 :: Screen Resolution Is Small - Windows Slow Down System

May 25, 2011

I have a problem with Lubuntu. First of all I installed it on my old laptop (amd sempron 1.6GHz, 512MB ram, s3g vga) as windows seemed to slow down my system. Installation was good, but the problem is screen resolution which is only 800x600 and there is no higher res option. Laptop's native is 1024x768. I searched a lot about how to change it but there is no post for lubuntu (everything is for ubuntu, xubuntu, and doesn't seem to work in here). Beyond that isse i I feel Lubuntu is running much better than windows and I want to use it. Using Lubuntu 11.04. Let me add that when I tried Lubuntu 10.04 it didn't have this problem (all resolutions where available).

General :: Netbook Screen Too Small / Workarounds This?

Feb 18, 2011

I have a netbook with a maximum screen resolution of 1024x600. I'm running a dualboot Ubuntu10.10 & Backtrack4r2, and I'm having some trouble with windows whose "height" was larger than 600px. Buttons end up below the screen, and I can't click 'Ok' or 'Cancel' or 'Apply'.

When my OS was still Windows7, I didn't have any problems because I can resize all of the windows that I use. Most of windows in linux (esp. in KDE settings), the windows has a fixed height.

Is there any workarounds to my problem?

Debian Hardware :: Upgrade The Infrastructure In Our Office (small Web Development Shop)?

Dec 4, 2010

I'm looking to upgrade the infrastructure in our office (small web development shop). I'm going to buy a small floor standing rack and in it we will have a dedicated firewall / VPN box, a web development server and a fileserver (for now). I intend to use Debian squeeze for everything.

My main question is what should I do about RAID? I've not used it myself before, instead relying on backups to removable disks. This time I want to do everything properly, and a measure of disk redundancy is required so I guess we will be going for RAID 1.

I'm looking at this [URL].. server which comes with an Intel ICH10R RAID controller on board, and also has an option to add a 3ware 9650SE-LP. The site says the Intel chipset is Windows only, so I guess the 3ware alternative is the way to go. The server also has two 3.5" hot swap drive bays. Could anybody advise me if the 3ware card is a good choice for use with Debian? Also, how can I monitor the health of the drives with standard Debian tools out of the repos? Any other RAID tips are also interesting for me.

Debian Configuration :: Startup Program Screen Too Small?

Oct 10, 2015

The "System Settings/Startup Programs" window is large enough but the "Program" column is too narrow and it cannot be resized. The window can be dragged to make it larger but not the individual columns. It looks like a Java listbox with "Enabled = false" set. This occurs in Debian8 64 bit and also in Mint 17 and Mint LMDE2. I am surprised nobody else has raised the issue. I have a basic setup with 22" screen and 1680 x 1050 resolution. It occurs with Nouveau and NVidia drivers. It is not a critical bug so I have coped with it for 2 years but it would be nice to see it fixed. Unfortunately I could not upload a screen shot as "board attachment quota has been reached".

Debian Multimedia :: Xorg Only Uses Small Part Of Screen?

Jun 9, 2011

After a install on a old Toshiba today everything looked fine. But when i tried to start Xorg it start but doesn't use my whole screen. It is not a resolution problem it just doesn't use the whole screen. Hopefully this explanation is understandable. On lenny i had the same issue but once i changed the console resolution size in grub everything was fine. Sadly this is not the case with squeeze. I already tried "X -configure" and had a look at the generated xorg.conf (posted below)


After that is tried to run the generated xorg.conf but then it just frooze.

SUSE :: Console Screen Font Very Small In Open 11.3

Aug 15, 2010

What's happening to the console screen resolution in version 11.3? I have been using an 80x24 character console screen to run character based software and I want 80x24 to fill the whole screen. To do that, I have chosen "text mode" on the initial dvd boot up screen (F3 before choosing install). Choosing a higher resolution installation produces gui installation screens and results in console screens with progressively higher resolution, smaller type and more characters/line and lines/page, as the gui resolution increases. The installation resolution does not seem to affect the xwindows resolution. However, when I installed ver 11.3 using the text mode installation, the console screens alt-F1 to alt-F6 had very small text and the 80x24 text area fit in a small rectangle in the upper left corner of the screen. How can I fix this? My system is an Asus M4A785-M motherboard with a 2.8 ghz quad core athlon II, using the onboard ATI Radeon HD 4200 GPU.
