This error message has nothing to do with your disks, EDID refers to identification table of your digital display.

I'd not worry too much about this issue.

Download the portable version of Libreoffice 3.3 from this list an use Impress for your presentations. This version can coexist with the installed one (the buggy 4.2.x or 4.3.x or whatever).

OMG. It looks like it was the monitor all along? I finally gave up, reinstalled Windows 8, and when that could not get the desired resolution either, I swapped the monitor for an identical model - et voila, it works!

Its annoying because you can't make the screen smaller by dragging the top of the window down to make a smaller box, then drag the whole box upwards and scroll down to see the buttons; because it wont or give you the option to. ...

Your issue is that you probably have a Nvidia card or AMD card, and you don't have proper drivers for it. If you could post your system specs in your answer, it would help a lot. Also post if you have integrated or on board graphics, and let me know if you have them disabled or not(If you know). I've found that manual installs work best for installing ...

No answer, just the same problem. Only getting 640 x 480 as a tiny little screen in the center of the monitor. Ubuntu is the only linux I have installed which won't display properly. Looking at the list of properly displaying ones I see Debian, Antergos, Solydx, and Mageia. Question is what would prevent Ubuntu from equalling these other Linux variants? ...
