Bad Display Problem
I am running Fedora Core 3 v.2.85 on a HP e-PC, 700mhz Celeron, 256mb RAM, Intel 810 Integrated Video, HP Pavilion M50 15" monitor.
Installation goes through without a hitch, and log on screen comes up fine except for a brief flash of garbled colors, otherwise the log on screen is fine. Then, no matter what desktop I start, I get the following display problem:
All icons appear normally, but when I try to open up a menu, I see only a dark outline until I move the mouse cursor over the empty area, then the menu items appear as the cursor passes over them. When I try to open up a window, I get only the outline of the window with the desktop in the background, and if I move the cursor over the window some of the items that are supposed to be in the window appear, others do not. When I try to close the window, it stays for a while, then parts of it disappear. I can't get in to run any commands from the desktop because I can't see anything. I've tried reinstalling several times, and I've tried rescue a few times, but to no avail. I've been able to play with the monitor settings in the KD desktop, but it's difficult because of the display problems. As I see it, the monitor should be set at 800x600 at 60hz, but I've tried all of the other options and nothing works.
