Monitor Settings


I have a compaq FP730A monitor and I have tried various Linux distro such as SUSE, UBUNTU, FC3, RH9 etc. None could work properly with this monitor.

What do I do and how do I track what the wrong is?

hi there,

go to your monitor information page and try to get some information.
then you add the correct lines to your xorg.conf//X86Config.conf

I did it exactly as you suggested but the problem is that when I am in Windows screen shifts to right. After adjusting it in WindowsXP when I go to KUBUNTU it shifts to left. Also the display is not good in KUBUNTU.

I have tried various distributions but none could solve this problem. I myself is a technical person and want a technology to see as matured as possible. That is why I don't want to give up.

hi there,

sorry, can not help with Windows. The point is:
you set the resolution in your conf file. some monitors you will need to adjust using the monitor specific buttons( normally they break after the third try, so be carefull!!).
write the correct info in the conf file, and adjust the buttons according to your requirements.
if in windows does not work, i am sorry.

regards

Well I resolved the problem by running xvidtune and then inserting the information on *modeline* into Xorg.conf file as follows:

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Generic Monitor"
Option "DPMS"
HorizSync 31-48
VertRefresh 50-60
ModeLine "1024x768" 63.34 1024 1072 1176 1328 768 769 772 79
EndSection

It worked.
