Help needed for xorg config
I recently purchased a new video card and monitor for my machine (running Fedora Core 3).
Unfortunately, I cannot generate or tweek my xorg.conf successfully enough to use X. The default configuration displays an image on the screen which is displaced horizontally such that left and right boarders are at the center of the screen (a wide dark area), and the middle of the image is off the monitor. The vertical placement seems fine.
I did some homework and a fair amount of research, but I've come up empty. According to the Video-Tuning howto, if the image is displaced horizontally, the center two values of the HTimings parameter should be shifted (by multiples of 8). I've taken the modeline values from the X startup log and worked from there, but so far have been unsuccessful. The displacement doesn't seem to change at all, or the monitor gives me "sync out of range" errors.
The video card is an AGP Mad Dog Champion MX400 (NVidia) and the monitor is a Memorex MM1940 19" flat panel. I['ve also tried using the read-edid utility the XFree86-Video-Timings refers to and I get errors reading the values.
I can post the xorg.conf, lspci output and the X startup log, but thought I'd throw this out there first and see if anyone has any advice on what to try next. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I am one frustrated person right now!
Much thanks. JJ
