    Analog Input Cannot Display This Video Mode


    I just installed Debian Etch, but when I boot into it, after it loads everything, my monitor says "Analog Input: Cannot Display This Video Mode." How do I fix this? I have a Dell 1907FP LCD Monitor

    I had this issue with my command line, and solved it by editing the /boot/grub/menu.lst file to remove the vga entry. For instance, it may now read:
    Code:
    title	  Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 2.6.26-1-686
    root	(hd0,0)
    kernel  /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.26-1-686 root=/dev/hda1 ro splash=silent vga=791 splash=silent 
    initrd	 /boot/initrd.img-2.6.26-1-686
    Change it by removing the vga entry, and then reboot. Your computer should be able to display things properly.

    If you also have a display issue with x-windows, than another thing to try is (as either root or sudo):
    Code:
    dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg
