"Out of Range"

October 19, 2011 at 11:17:01
Specs: Windows Vista / Ubuntu 10.11
I had Vista Home Basic 32 Bit, and I thought about installing Ubuntu 11.10, so I did, and it worked like a charm. After some time, I thought about booting back to Vista, and I got the message on the monitor "Out of Range". No, Safe Mode doesn't work, it also displays "Out of Range" but, Ubuntu works fine. If one of your questions is if Vista is still there, it is. Maybe another monitor? I do not want to buy another pc.

Try "enable low resolution video" from the F8 boot menu. If that works, reset the resolution in Windows.

Sounds like video signal issue, see:

When I said "Safe Mode doesn't work" I meant I was trying F8.
Oh and Ubuntu works fine, it's only on Vista that I'm having the problem. Yes, I did look up other questions, so I know it's either my resolution (which is the same on Ubuntu as Vista), or resfresh rate (in that casr I dunno)

Are you saying you can't get the F8 menu? Low-resolution mode is not the same as safe mode.

Correct, I try to press F8 constantly, multiple tries, always reverting to the "Out of Range" screen.

Hello guys! I've been updating from 10.04 to 11.10 yesterday, and got the same problem. As long as I understood t is not a OS issue, but a screen's. Grub is there but you can't see it. I followed the next solution, easy and it worked:
1. When you see "Sync Out Of Range" screen, do nothing and let Ubuntu start up automatically.
2. Once you are in Ubuntu, open a Terminal and type:
"sudo startup-manager"
3. Once installed, open it with Terminal (i've got lost in Unity Desktop) typing
"startupmanager"
4. Strangely, grub screen configuration wasn't too high, but too low! i've changed it to the next level, closed it, started up again, and voliĆ”! here was the old grub.

Hope it helps!
