I just built my computer and I tried to install Xubuntu, but shortly after I start the install my monitor gives me the message
out of range, and it doesn't allow me to finish installing it. I've seen a number of other posts about the same issue under slightly different circumstances or having solutions that don't work for me.
I got to the installer boot menu, and I tried both the
try before installing and the
install options, and both start showing 4 loading dots and
Xubuntu 16.04 in plain-text. Sometimes a few lines of text show something, but soon after I get the
out of range message.
I tried installing with other options like
vga=771 and a few other, but they didn't seem to make much difference. The installer boot menu said to type
menu in to return to that menu, but that didn't seem to do anything and it just started to install, so I'm not sure if it even took any of the options I tried. I also tried pressing some function keys as some solutions suggested, but all any of them seemed to do was refresh the installer boot menu.
I tried installing the regular Ubuntu, but it did the exact same things. I also tried installing Linux Mint, and it also gave me the
out of range message. I tried installing Debian, and it had a completely different install boot set up, but I ran into an issue with it not being able to read from the cdrom, even though I'm using a usb with YUMI to install it, which also seemed to be a common issue that I couldn't find a solution to.
My computer is using a GTX 1070, and my monitor is an ASUS VN279Q. (I can provide additional system info if necessary)
What can I do to actually get Xubuntu installed? I would even settle for one of the other distros I mentioned.
