Look at Kernel Parasmeters
add 'nomodeset' at end of kernel line and boot
And xrandr, since kali is debian, is it not?

Hardware info would be good

We took you down the wrong road.

So to start over again, tell us about your hardware including the computer, it's video card (or built-in video system), and your monitor. And while you're at it, how your monitor is connected to your PC.

Or, if it is a laptop, the make, model, and year (that doesn't have to be exact).

I have hp compaq dc7100, i haven't any video card on my pc, monitor is goldvision TV, but i don't know model, but i have successfully launched kali linux by adding nomodeset right quote splash, or something like that.

G'day @Mounimeb0192 and welcome to linux.org :)

Code:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="splash"
If you did that by modifying the boot parameters, that will last only for the current session and you would need to repeat on each boot.

If you are in Kali GNOME, and Root, to make the change permanent, you will need to edit /etc/default/grub and then update grub

From Terminal

Code:
gedit /etc/default/grub
The file will open, and there will be a line near the top which features, perhaps, something like

Code:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="splash"

# change this to read

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="nomodeset splash"

#then exit and save.
# then run

update-grub
Following that, reboot and see if the changes stick.

Cheers
