That's probably a better question for the Ubuntu forums rather than 

But when you get the answer, post it here ! I've had also such problems of 
"no signal" a year ago but didn't have time to look for an answer back 

But is this a problem dependent on the video card ? I remember a similar 
problem with detection of monitors on a videocard that had two inputs and 
had to pick one of the outputs as the default one. Unfortunately, I don't 
recall the details.

Is the X11 server running at all ? Use 'ps' or 'top' to see, and/or get 
the log in "/var/log".
