I've recently installed Ubuntu 12.04 on my computer. Now, every time I boot and when I shut down, my monitor goes blank and says "Input Signal Out of Range - Change Setting to 1920x1080 60Hz."

Once the computer gets to the login screen, it's okay again. This problem also happens when I try to open any 3d app.

My graphics card is NVIDIA GEforce 6150 SE. I tried updating the drivers, but it broke everything and I had to reinstall Ubuntu. Any help?

This is a common problem. What happens if you leave it for a few minutes and let it try to boot? – hexafraction Oct 5 '12 at 21:33
