** Description changed:

  I think I this bug report belongs to initramfs-tools or usplash
  My girlfriends pc doesn't display the usplash. It only shows a
  blackscreen. Ubuntu boots fine.
  This is for Edgy with 2.6.17-10-generic
  I couldn't find anything obvious (to me) in the syslog.
  I'm *guessing* either the monitor isn't detected properly or there
  should be a added a  time-out somewhere.
  The computer is not very fast P3, 1 ghz, 256 mb ram.
  She has an old 14" monitor. This is the relevant part of xorg.conf to
  give more information about the monitor:
  Section "Monitor"
    Identifier "Generic Monitor"
    Option "DPMS"
    HorizSync 28-40
    VertRefresh 43-56
  I tried adding a time-out in initramfs-tools (based on this guide :
  http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=76309). It didn't fix
  anything. There's a chance I have to do it at a different place.
- Saïvann : According to comments, this bug seems to regularly affects 14
- inch screens.
