    Monitor Display Problem - Out-Of-Range


    Hello. I just built a new PC and am attempting to run Debian Lenny as the OS. Once the OS is loaded, I cannot boot into graphics mode. I get an "Out-Of-Range" message flashing on my monitor and then is goes blank. From my research, it seems the HV Frequency being sent to the monitor exceeds its settings. I have tried 2 monitors and both failed. One site suggested to reconfig xfree86. The hardware installed is an MSI KGA790GX motherboard, AMD Phenom II X3 CPU, and 4Gb DDR2 1066 Mhz RAM. I did have an XFX HD4870 video card installed, but I removed it and am running off the integrated graphics. I also reloaded the OS after removing the card, but that did not help. It may be I need to load MSI ATI drivers, but I cannot locate them for Linux on the AMD site. Has anyone encountered problems using the AMD grahics chipset and Debian Lenny? Thanks.

    I just loade Kubuntu 8.1 and the monitor is now working. So, I strongly suspect Debian Lenny lacks some driver support for the AMD chipset being used in my configuration.
