Installing Ubuntu

Has anybody tried to install Ubuntu 10.4 onto a formatted hard drive.All I get is "signal over range".I get the idea that I have to change the resolution and maybe refresh rate,but since I can't get past this message what do I do.Lots of this on forums but no answer.Not a new pc,its for my sons use,but I thought Ubuntu was resource friendly
Try a different monitor...
Are you getting the initial install splash screen up?

If so, hit F4 and chose safe graphics mode for the install.

Otherwise use Fedora instead :)
May I suggest a different distro as opposed to waiting for a resolution (pun definitely not intended) to your issue.

I use OpenSuse.
I like Ubuntu the problem is your monitor settings try safe mode
