    Linux video mode for Intel?

    asteriks

      Hi, I have Live CD linux Amnesia, it is based on Debian. When I try to boot Linux, always I get problem on monitor: "Input signal is out of range, Change settings to 1280x1024, 60Hz."

      (screenshot: http://i56.tinypic.com/2e51q9f.jpg). I don't know what to do about it, I tried to change VGA mode (774, 775, 793, 794, 795, 829) but nothing helped. here is screenshot of intel control panel in windows: http://i56.tinypic.com/140hs14.jpg

      GPU: Intel (R) Q45/Q43 Express Chipset


      can anyone help?

          One option would be a better monitor.

           

          Your showing a Windows screen shot, but you are not booting to windows so the setting in windows should have no impact.

           

          The Linux CD is detecting that your graphics can run at higher resolution so shift to the higher value, unfortunuatly your monitor cannot.

           

          There should be an option to boot into linux text mode and modify the screen resolution. (but I am not a linux guy and can't tell you how )
