Thread: Installation issues resulting in bad input signal

    Default Installation issues resulting in bad input signal

    I am attempting to install OpenSUSE 13.1, however, after accepting "Installation" at the initial prompt I receive warnings from the monitor specifying that the signal is out of range or bad. Before this monitor prompt is displayed, I do notice that the install begins and does show the loading text and gets to "Starting udev..." before the issue being discussed. It does seem to be a complication with the initial settings so I have tried various steps to solve the problem.

    • Set "nomodeset" and tried "F3 Video Mode" with the "No KMS" setting
    • Tried "F3 Video Mode" with the "Text Mode" setting and attempted running at run level 3
    • Tried "F3 Video Mode" with various resolution settings
    • Tried "F5 Kernel" with "Safe Settings" and just to try it, all other settings
    • Attempted various other boot options, including trying to set the vga resolution manually


    I have attempted each of the above (and possibly more) in various combinations on various monitors with no luck. This was all performed using the DVD iso and the Live iso. I have performed a media check, but it had to be completed on a different computer as it also resulted in a bad input signal.

    Thanks for any ideas.

    "nomodeset" has no effect with the ATI rage driver as this does not support/use KMS anyway.

    Maybe try to specify a specific text mode resolution via the vga= boot option.
    F.e. "vga=791" for 1024c768 in 16bit.
    See here for a list of possible values: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VESA_BI...o_mode_numbers
