Unable to display, Millions of Colors, Generic LCD R720N, Fedora Core 3


# uname -r
2.6.9-1.678_FC3

Appreciate any assistance, with a Rosewill R720N LCD Monitor,
w ww.rosewill.com/product/product.aspx?productId=37
Getting it to work in any Depth higher than 8 256 colors in xorg.conf
My only choice in getting this unknown Monitor working at all, durring installation, of Fedora Core 3, was to choose Generic LCD Monitor 640x480 256 colors.
Once in X I was able to raise the resolution to 1280x1024
Although any higher Depth, is unusable and requires a reboot and recovery of xorg.conf
Code:

figured it out, installed the RPM from ATI driver download then combined xorg.conf and the XFREE86config-4 file created by ATI. if you install ATI driver RPM. I did get a couple of errors on the install but it seems they are written for an older kernal, so I ignored them


here's my blended /etc/X11/xorg.conf

# Xorg configuration created by system-config-display

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "single head configuration"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
EndSection

Section "Files"

# RgbPath is the location of the RGB database. Note, this is the name of the
# file minus the extension (like ".txt" or ".db"). There is normally
# no need to change the default.
# Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (they are concatenated together)
# By default, Red Hat 6.0 and later now use a font server independent of
# the X server to render fonts.

# To disable the XKEYBOARD extension, uncomment XkbDisable.

# To customise the XKB settings to suit your keyboard, modify the
# lines below (which are the defaults). For example, for a non-U.S.
# keyboard, you will probably want to use:
# Option "XkbModel" "pc102"
# If you have a US Microsoft Natural keyboard, you can use:
# Option "XkbModel" "microsoft"
#
# Then to change the language, change the Layout setting.
# For example, a german layout can be obtained with:
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# or:
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# Option "XkbVariant" "nodeadkeys"
#
# If you'd like to switch the positions of your capslock and
# control keys, use:
# Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:swapcaps"
# Or if you just want both to be control, use:
# Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:nocaps"

Lightbulb Fixed by changing AGP to 4x

The solution that worked for me was to change the speed of AGP in the bios from 8x to 4x.

The other fix.http://images.linuxquestions.org/que...cons/icon3.gif
