[SOLVED] Undefined Video Boot Problem

Postby BakUp » Wed May 27, 2009 4:20 pm

I am having a problem on boot up with my Parsix 2.0, I get this message:
undefined video mode number: 317.....please press <enter> to see video modes available, <space> to continue or wait 30 seconds


I have tried changing the mode but that does not have any affect. When I press the space bar or wait 30 seconds everything boots up fine and am able to login and the system works normal.

Seeing there does not seem to be a problem at all despite this message, is there a way I could disable this message ? Is there a file in which I can change the "wait 30 seconds" to 0 ?

I have just completed the latest Dist-Upgrade, I still get the same message as I did on the fresh install.

Below are my specs:
Code: Select all
-Intel Corporation 82865G/PE/P DRAM Controller/Host-Hub Interface intel-agp (v2.6.25)
-Intel Corporation 82865G Integrated Graphics Controller intelfb (v2.6.25)
-Intel Corporation 82801EB/ER (ICH5/ICH5R) USB2  UHCI/EHCI Controller   
-Intel Corporation 82801 PCI Bridge (i810_rng,hw_random)   
-Intel Corporation 82801EB/ER (ICH5/ICH5R) LPC Interface Bridge intel-rng,iTCO_wdt (v2.6.25)
-Intel Corporation P4C800 Mainboard piix (v2.6.25)
-Intel Corporation 82801EB (ICH5) SATA Controller ata_piix (v2.6.25)
-Intel Corporation 82801EB/ER (ICH5/ICH5R) SMBus Controller i2c-i801 (v2.6.25)
-Intel Corporation 82801EB/ER (ICH5/ICH5R) AC'97 Audio Controller, snd-intel8x0 (v2.6.25)
-Processor: Intel(R) Celeron(R) D CPU 3.29GHz


All opinions and suggestions are welcome !

Just open /boot/grub/menu.list using root user and remove that "vga=791" from kernel lines and save it. Are you installing it on netbook?

i have also run into this problem with an old CRT monitor. another fix is changing the vga=791 to vga=normal, but for some reason every kernel upgrade i need to re-edit menu.lst

is there a way to make this option "stick"?
