    Default Re: "Input Signal Out of Range" Message

    ILL kernel 5.14 is not compatible with Nvidia yet.
    Try to use AMD/ATI/Intel.

    Yes. I had also tried 800x600@60, but to no avail.

    I'm not well-versed in these things. (/.\). The cable type is VGA. The graphics card accepts all the types you have listed, but the monitor only accepts VGA and DVI. I had previously stated, mistakenly, that the main PC does not have a display port. It does, but it only takes DVI. I visited local stores today and looked for a DVI cable, or a VGA-to-DVI converter, but I found none.

    The main PC is seven-years old. Yes, it does have a UEFI BIOS, and I am booting in UEFI mode. I tried hitting with UEFI mode disabled, but that unfortunately didn't make any difference.

    Thank you very much! =D. I was able to boot into a graphical desktop environment after switching to XDM, if my memory serves me correctly. The resolution is currently set to 1024x768@60 by the system. What I have noticed so far is that the system seems to fail to recognise the graphics card, and the graphics testify to the fact. It also fails to identify the monitor being used. Reddit videos fail to play in both Firefox and Chromium, but YouTube videos play just fine. The PC frequently freezes after some time of being moderately used, but I am unsure if this is an OS issue, or a PC issue.

    That's unfortunate. :/. I saw several Reddit users repeating the fact.

    I unfortunately don't have any other graphics card besides this Nvidia one.

    The above comment is inconsistent with the following statement:
    What I have noticed so far is that the system seems to fail to recognise the graphics card, and the graphics testify to the fact. It also fails to identify the monitor being used.
    You should boot to a graphical desktop, open a terminal, then do
    Code:
    inxi -Gay
    and paste the output here wrapped in code tags so that we get a sense of what's really going on.
    The PC frequently freezes after some time of being moderately used, but I am unsure if this is an OS issue, or a PC issue.
    Is this fairly consistent, or more like random? Is the inside of the PC clean and its fans all working? If the problem is more random, it could be a power supply weakness. Some don't last as long as they should, and develop inconsistent voltages that components sometimes cannot tolerate.

    I seem to have naively jumped to conclusions. What I meant to say is, when looking in System Settings > Display Configuration, the monitor name is not displayed, but the word "VGA-0" is displayed instead; and that the graphics do not appear polished.

    The problem seems to have disappeared, although Reddit videos aren't playing still. It always came specifically about 15-minutes into using a browser. The inside of the PC is clean, and all its fans are working.

    You still haven't provided Xorg.0.log as requested in post #5. xdpyinfo should be installed so that inxi info can be complete.

    I'm sorry. (/.\)

    Here's inixi info after xdpyinfo has been installed:

    As you have installed NVidia's proprietary drivers, which I never do, I'm out of ideas what is going on. That log is very different from logs which I've previously seen. It does show errors, but some I've never seen before, while some information I expect to see is absent. Unless someone else here chimes in with NVidia driver experience to help further, I can only suggest to either post your problem in NVidia's own help forums, or uninstall the NVidia driver package to see if standard FOSS drivers can work as they do for me.

    loaded: modesetting,nvidia
    You need only one of them.
    Possibly kernel is too new for Nvidia drivers.

    Device-1: NVIDIA GF119 [GeForce GT 520]
    Maybe Nvidia driver is not supported for this new kernel.

    OpenGL:renderer: llvmpipe
    Kernel is not using Nvidia drivers.

    alternate: nouveau,nv
    Use Nvidia or nouveau drivers, not both.
    It is better to uninstall one of them.

    Inxi is showing success loading those two modules reported in Xorg.0.log. It will do this whether they were installed or not, unless a driver was explicitly specified in /etc/X11/Xorg.con*.
