Monitor: Out of Range
I just got my new monitor (can't get a link to work..?) and when I boot KNOPPIX it goes through everything then it says "Out of Range". What do I do? I tried the KNOPPIX live cd and it worked, also tried Ubuntu and it worked fine.

Huh, i don't get it, you say it doesn't work when you boot knoppix, then you say knoppix and ubuntu work fine? explain a bit more please, were you trying to install knoppix to the harddrive or something and it said that?

No I already have KNOPPIX on the HDD, I tried the Ubuntu and KNOPPIX live cds to see what they would do.
Edit: It said out of range when I booted my installed KNOPPIX.

Still won't work. Is there anything else I can try? Also, if this doesn't work. Does Ubuntu come with ndiswrapper?

Try setting up the XF86Config (XF86Config-4?) manually, by when the X server starts and the "Out of range" comes up press: Ctrl+Alt+Backspace or Ctrl+Alt+F2 and log in to get the CLI. From the CLI you can edit the X config file manually and then try to start/restart it. You might want to change vertical syncrate horizontal then depth and resolution.
You can ofcourse also try changing the horizontal refresh rate from grub : "hsync=80". Knoppix always messes up my refresh rate for my home compter - it sets vertical to ~2000 and horizontal to ~700.

I'm not sure I understand how to do this from GRUB. Also, editing the Xconfig didn't work at all. Chances are I just don't really know what to put in and it messed things up. Anything else I can try, and how do I do that from GRUB, thanks for the help ya'll.
