It's a monitor design quirk causing that.
You got the message because Ubuntu read the info your monitor fed back to your videocard and somehow understood it could run the monitor at a higher or lower frequency than the monitor can really work with; say, 120Hz rather than 70 or 55Hz refresh rates.

 If you don't even get the first logo menu, try hitting either down-arrow, then enter, or F4.  Those correspond to menu choices to boot in failsafe graphics mode or get the menu in such a mode.

Monitor wont come on on power spec model 7124


Probably your computer needs newer monitor (the monitor's frequency can not accommodate the video card's required frequency). Please post the details info of both your 2 computers and the monitor.

My computer is about seven years old so I can't really upgrade to a newer OS. I am still using Ubuntu 8.04. Anyways. The problem that I have is earlier my computer screen turned black. So I rebooted...


My computer is an old Compaq Evo. It's around the same age. And I'm running Ubuntu 11.04 just fine. I upgraded from 8.04, to 10, now to 11.04
I have to say 11.04 has amazing drivers, everything seems to work 100% of the time with it now. And it supports more PNP (Plug-n-play) devices
Best part about Ubuntu is, you can upgrade, and down grade based on your likes or dislikes.

Am pulling my hair out. I'm a newbie to Linux but keen to get into it. Installed 9.10 as a dual boot alongside XP and after problems with grub, which I have re-mounted, I get to the OS choice page. XP...


Backup, Repairing and Reinstalling GRUB
  • To make a backup a copy of the existing menu.lst file use: cp /boot/grub/menu.lst /boot/grub/menu.lst.oldYou can try re-installing the grub using the Ubuntu Live CD, in two different ways.

GUI
  1. Boot your computer up with Ubuntu CD
  2. Go through all the process until you reach "[!!!] Disk Partition"
  3. Select Manual Partition
  4. Mount your appropriate linux partions / /boot swap .....
  5. DO NOT FORMAT THEM.
  6. Finish the manual partition
  7. Say "Yes" when it asks you to save the changes
  8. It will give you errors saying that "the system couldn't install ....." after that
  9. Ignore them, keep select "continue" until you get back to the Ubuntu installation menu
  10. Jump to "Install Grub ...."
  11. Once it is finished, just restart your computer

I have a spi 2gb mp3 player and have lost the software disc i cannot find anything online to help me and the tech support for the spi site goes to an unbought site for godaddy.com this is ridiculous. win 7...


Try another computer (if available) to see if the player is reconised by that one. If it is reconised, there may be something wrong with your computer (windows should still reconise the device as a mp3 player, but would not be able to open it without the drivers). If you can't try another computer, try a linux live cd (I recomend Ubuntu http://www.ubuntu.com/) the live cd will not modify your computer unless you tell it to. To use the live cd insert it in the cd drive, reboot and in the bios menu select boot from cd. Using the live cd will allow the computer to run linux (another operating system) without installing it, meaning that you won't need to worry about iharming your computer. I reccomend this because if you use the live cd, you will have a different OS looking at the device, like having a fresh set of eyes, and it may be able to open the player (Ubuntu has great driver support).

Getting a No sync message on monitor ,computer


No sync message could be for 2 reasons.

1. Loose VGA cable
2. Wrong driver installed or configuration made is out of monitor range

For loose cable you can fix it up from both ends, on CPU and on Monitor itself.
For second reason, we just have to delete display driver from Device Manager. Follow below method to delete driver

Start computer in safe mode. To start in safe mode, as soon the system boots up press F8 and select Safe Mode. After you log into the safe mode. Right click the "My Computer" icon on desktop, go to properties,
go to "Hardware" tab, Click on "Device Manager", go to "Display driver" and expland it, select the driver below the expanded "Display Driver" and press delete to remove the driver. Now restart the system and it will automatically adjust the display driver for you.

When i turn it on it says out of range and i have a black screen


Hi, The reason behind the out of range (frequency of monitor) because the video display adapter is trying to set resolution more than what the monitor (screen) is capable of. In this case, try to boot your computer in Safe Mode using F8 function key while starting your computer. Once you are in safe mode, try to decrease the resolution of monitor to the lowest resolution level and apply the settings. Now try to boot computer in normal mode once again, you will get the settings which you have applied in safe mode. Adjust the screen resolution accordingly till the settings work with the monitor (screen).
Cheers!

Cannot remember password to get into E-System 4213


OK if the drive is not encrypted then you can use an Ubuntu live CD (http://www.ubuntu.com/ to download it for free 700MB file and you need to burn it). Ubuntu is another operating system, but with the live CD you can use Ubuntu (without modifying your computer) to view the files. If you like Ubuntu you can install it too. If you do end up installing it, Ubuntu is a version of Linux and is much faster and more stable than Windows. You do not even need virus protection but there is free virus protection software available.
