I changed my monitor recently and the settings the monitor expects is 1280X1024@60 Hz. Every time I restart my Ubuntu after a shutdown, the default setting that comes up for the monitor is 1280X1024@50Hz. As my new monitor is not compatible with this settings, it only displays the error message viz - " The current input timining is not supported by the monitor display". The only way I can come out of this is, to connect an old monitor, change the settings to 1280X1024@60Hz and again reconnect the new one.

Can someone help me on how to make ubuntu automatically detect my new monitor's compatible settings when it boots up?

I am using Ubuntu 10.04

Thanks Karthik

what graphics card do you use, which driver do you use? Maybe you can change the resolution / refresh rate parameters in /etc/X11/xorg.conf, if it exists on your system. – Michael K Oct 31 '11 at 9:52
