Nvidia based MSI FX5600 card won't install
The card in the subject line has been installed in a box which happily ran redhat 8 and nine on a GF4 Ti4200 card until same cooked itself.
It twinview'd, it 3d'd it did all singing all dancing stuff, and then died. Such is life.
New card has faster processor and 128 meg of ram and should blister, and indeed, under windows its fine. But try to install any flavor of Linux, and all kinds of trouble ensue.
1. Can't install using graphical interface.
so text install ...
2. Completes install ok, then boots, gets to the x server boot and flicks over and over trying modes until it finally stops with a screen message saying "Out of freq range", and indeed, at 15 x 25 MhZ, it sure nuff is.
So far ... installed new drivers from Nvidia (wot a breeze the new installer is), modified the XFConfig file a thousand ways, went looking for the bit of the kernel wrap that looks at the card.
That's where I am . . . lost in the bit between the kernel and the hardware ....help?
