Note sure if you have the steps to manually change your display settings in Windows 7 but the link below will help you do this.

http://www1.fixya.com/support/r4290529-change_windows_7_display_settings
After checking these steps and you still have trouble look to see if Sony has a Vista 32 bit driver for your computer because in most cases the Vista drivers will work with Windows 7.

Let me know if you have any more problems or quesitons

I have a desktop PC with HP v72 monitor and a GeForce FX 5200 video card installed. I uninstalled Windows XP and installed Ubuntu Server 11.04. The problem is that after the initial boot screen my monitor...


why run server, , sure you actually want a server.. sure.
Linux, run the newest Ubuntu on new pc
or older on older pc, ive no idea at all what PC you have.
v72 old CRT , glass tube monitor a RELIC in today world.
why post OS questions lacking what HP computer you have of 1000s.
XP gone great idea, for sure....
OK F8 is Microsoft , for get them it not MS now, not at ALL.
in the Linux world its failing to find the correct minimum or
best resolution to match your old monitor
the monitor is year 2000.
the best resolution is 1024 x 768

you are using new linux, and it does not use that old old CRT
weak as a cat resolution,
you can use and older linux, or newer monitor
or change the resolution
using
if seen and done this 100s of time, endless,
btw your OLD CRT monitor does not use proper PnP plug and play
data comms.. its too old, why mess with CRTs in 2017?
walmart sells a $45 LCD , use that? and avoid darkages resolutions.


the way to do this is to run in command line mode
and change the config file, called, xorg.conf

https://techblissonline.com/ubuntu-804-set-default-resolution-1024-768-virtual-pc-2007/


there are other ways,
recompile the kernal to default to this reso? relic
or there is hot key at boot, read the manual on ubuntu
and change to lowest poor resolution
then run setups with a working desktop.

ask on a Ubuntu forum, it can vary by year, OS made and version
and what what desktop running of the many.

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Config/Resolution#Resetting_an_out-of-range_resolution



keep in mind
your CRT is not supported now.
you must force it.

one more for V12, dropped the startup manager, wow....
best is to ask only for your version and choices at install time.
grub , KDE? what?

Screen resolution too low.


You will need to compile the drivers. This is difficult but not impossible. Plenty of information on the Ubuntu Forums regarding this.

Trying to run ubuntu


It sounds like Ubuntu chose a screen resolution that your monitor doesn't support. For the sake of sanity, I would a reboot and then try booting to Windows to ensure that what camone311 suggests happened isn't so -- I doubt it, as the install process is more involved than just 1 click - there are SEVERAL variables (time, date, username, passwords, how much of the hard drive to use, etc) that have to be set before anything is written to the hard drive.

If you're able to boot to Windows, then I would boot back to the CD and give it another go. At the menu where it says Try Ubuntu... there's an option to change the graphics modes - I would try safe graphics mode or VESA to see if that fixes the black screen problems that you were having.

Intrepid Ibex Beta


If you are using a laptop, yes, it is better. Mainly due to some more driver support for wireless and bluetooth. I do not think there is any performance increase, just more hardware compatibility.

I use ubuntu 8.04 Hardy on a PC, there would be no need for me to upgrade at this time.

G'luck

Ubuntu Screen


The same way you set it on any Linux.  If you don't like the gui setting controls in look/feel, feed in boot commandline options or go into /etc/x11/xorg.conf and throw in a few likeable resolutions and restart X.

   These answers are totally in the bundled notes and documentation, not to mention the Ubuntu wiki; why ask here if as if something is broken in a unique way?
