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.

Get rid of "Out Of Range" message on e218c1 monitor.


The device driving the monitor is exceeding the horizontal and vertical frequencies that the monitor can display .....thus the "out of range". The specs for this state that the Horizontal Freq. is 80Khz and the Vertical Rate is 75hz. If you are driving this monitor from a computer running Windows, reboot the PC and use the F8 key to put it in SAFE mode. This will cause the video driver to default to a rate that the monitor can handle. Then go into the screen resolution settings and reset them. The native resolution of the monitor is 1680x1050 at 60 Hz. Exceed that and you'll get the "out of range"

Frequency out of range 11khz/ 119khz message


The PC is sending out the resolution that is too high for the monitor to handle, you need to set the resolution of the PC to be the native resolution of the monitor and set the refesh rate to be at 60Hz.

Out of range message


This is caused by a resolution and/or refresh frequency setting in your computer's display properties that exceeds the values supported by the monitor.
Find out the optimum (native) resolution of your monitor (in case of AMV 17V5 it will be 1280x1024 pixels), and supported refresh frequency (usually 60Hz for LCD monitors), and set your display properties to these values.
