I’m having trouble installing Ubuntu, first off i tried using wubi in windows all went ok up until i had restart computer, done as i was told click restart (as i have windows also installed gave me boot menu).
I input my boot password and select Ubuntu from the menu, ok going great so far, i get the ubuntu logo fading in and out for bout 30 seconds then my monitor goes click, and throws up this error message " 93.0 Khz / 58.5 Khz - Frequency out of range try other resolutions "
Done some digging around the net, found sudo commands to change xorg etc but non of which helps as i haven’t gotten to install it fully yet, downloaded a program for windows HWInfo32 and looked up my monitor details and checked the frequency ranges - Horizontal Frequency: 30 - 86 Khz, Vertical Frequency: 50 - 160 Khz - so the frequency for horizontal (assuming 93.0 khz on error message is horizontal) is set too high.
So my question is how can i change the frequency during install i read it will give me a list of video modes i can use trouble is monitor is giving out before i even reach that far, any help would be gratefully recieved hope i have provided you with enough info bout as much as i can get.
P.s i also downloaded live cd and burnt that to disk instead of running the install try to run ubuntu live and that also threw up same error message.

I’m am replying to this via ubuntu the ctrl + alt + -/+ worked, although still gave me problems best screen ended up with a ghosted desktop I had 2 desktops hard to figure out which desktop had the actual install boxes also let me “scroll” down loads to : , eventually got it sorted though and went to system > admin > hardware drivers and installed the nvidia drivers from there reset and logged in with no problems only problem I have now is, the resolution is set to 1600 x 1200 and even if I set it to my normal resolution of 1024 x 768 and apply the changes after reset it goes back to 1600 x 1200 but I’m sure after googling a bit, I can find a cure
