Fixing plymouth screen - lucid - signal out of range

Asked by Chethan S. on 2010-09-21

I followed the instructions given at http://linuxhub.net/2010/06/fix-big-and-ugly-plymouth-in-ubuntu-10-04-lucid-lynx/ for fixing my ugly plymouth screen after installing Nvidia drivers. All worked as expected. However I made some modifications in the instructions as I required.

They were,
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nomodeset video=uvesafb:mode_option=1280x1024-24,mtrr=3,scroll=ywrap

I used 1366*768 instead of 1280*1024.

I didn't replace GRUB_GFXMODE=640x480 with GRUB_GFXMODE=1280x1024 as it would be hard to visualize in the grub screen.

Now my problem is I am able to see the nice plymouth but the monitor displays an error as "Input signal out of range, so set 1366*768 and 60 Hz."

Can't make out what is the problem now.

you need to change

GRUB_GFXMODE=640x480

to

GRUB_GFXMODE=1366x768

Then run:

sudo update-grub
sudo update-initramfs -u

Should make it ok. You may have to use a lesser resolution (just for grub). To avoid the message (could even try 1024x768)

Can you help with this problem?
