- Screen Resolution “Out of Range” 2 answers
I recently dual booted my old Windows xp with Ubuntu 12 using the iso burned to a CD (wubi). The installation worked like a dream but after rebooting I found there was no way of getting back to XP. After restarting the screen simply says "out of range" (meaning what?) and anything from 10-30 seconds later goes straight to the linux login page. The bizarre thing is I can still access the Windows drive from inside Ubuntu, but any Microsoft/Windows specific products won't open. I'm not sure Grub is working properly either. Ubuntu is great to have but I wanted the choice on booting up, not being locked out Windows as this machine is.
