I've added vga=0x318 to my menu.lst but whenever I boot, I get the message, "Undefined video mode number 318, press enter to see available modes, space to continue, or wait 30 seconds...
Anyone know what the problem is? I've tried vga=ask (gives me tiny resolutions like 80x65!!!!) and vga=792. Still the same thing. My card is an intel i815. any help would be appreciated. thanks.
Ubuntu 8.04 (x86) : Can't boot "Undefined video mode" problem
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 26, 2008
I recently installed Ubunutu 8.04 on a couple of PC's (Core 2 Duo, very similar configs). The first one I got running and no problem.
The 2nd machine, I also got running, but after 2 days of usage, I came back from the weekend to find that it would not boot. I get the following error:
Starting up ...
Undefined video mode number: f7f7
Press <ENTER> to see video modes available, <SPACE> to continue or wait 30 sec
If I press enter, I get a list like:
0 0F00 80x25 VGA
1 0F01 80x50 VGA
2 0F02 80x43 VGA
3 0F03 80x28 VGA
4 0F05 80x30 VGA
5 0F06 80x34 VGA
6 0F07 80x60 VGA
Enter a video mode or "scan" to scan for additional modes:
If I tell it to scan or enter any other video mode, most of them just lock up (even NumLock / Caps Lock doesn't toggle on my keyboar

sorry for bothering you all with this question again... Iīve already read many threads with this subject and have already done everything I read, but nothing seems to work here with my slackware 9.1 ._.
I tryed pico /etc/lilo.conf
and changed to vga=771, and then to vga=773, and then to vga=788, and then to vga=ask, and then to vga=normal.... but when I try "startx" my monitor gets strange... some green and blue lines appear...
note: with vga=normal the "You passed an ..." didnīt show up, but the startx continued all messed ._.
I donīt really know whatīs happening... red hat and mandrake didnīt give me this error of "undefined mode etc...", so it proves my computer can work well with linux
knoppix gave me this "undefined mode etc..." in the beggining of the boot too, but I chose zero and then ev

DSL and Intel 82810E graphics controller undefined mode number
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 15, 2008
Hi, I'm trying to install Damn Small Linux on my computer. This is what I know about my computer:
Compaq Deskpro (i686)
Pentium III 600Mhz
Intel 82810E graphics controller
TSST cd r/rw
Lucent Winmodem (I have the linux drivers I need, just don't know how to make them work)
Right now I'm running winxp sp2 which I'm getting rid of tomorrow. I ran DSL as a live cd and it had a problem with the graphics controller. I passed an undefined mode number so it says, it then gives me a list to pick from or I can try scan. So I typed scan and it came up with two more options named a or b. I picked b, I think it was talking about rows and colums, and how many I wanted. Well I want 1280 x 1024, but it seems to want me to only have 800 x 600. I have a 19in Samsung LCD monitor, and DSL looks crappy on it (using fluxbox). So what do I need to do to fix that when I do a HD intall? Also I have a lucent winmodem which I have all my linux drivers for (found my chipset
Undefined mode number on boot
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 14, 2006
Virtually every distro I've tried (usually a LiveCD), whether it will install or not, shows an immediate message on boot of:
You passed an undefined mode number. Press enter to choose, or spacebar/30 seconds to continue.
Selecting mode 0 (80 x 25) resolves the problem sometimes, but this seems to be a default DOS resolution, isn't it?
Any advice/suggestions would be appreciated, as I think most of my problems with virtually all distros are linked to this.
