Display on Toshiba 2210, LCD DSTN


Hi!

I had Red Hat v.8 installed on my laptop Toshiba Satellite 2210. Linux is in Dual boot with windows 98.

Every pieces of hardware is working fine but I get like 5 cms of black & white lines on the screen at some time as soon as I log in the system. It is erased when I sweep it with a window or open a menu. It seems to be worse with KDE than Gnome. My screen is a 12.1" DSTN LCD with 800x600 and 16M colors.

Is there a fine tuning of the frequency (may be) of the display?

Thanks for your help.

Michel

On some variations of this laptop users have reported to me some problems under X. Alan Danziger (Toshiba 5105-S901) needed

Options "IgnoreEdid" "true"


in the XF86Config-4 file, while Steve Dean (Toshiba 6100) reported a black line on the right side of the display, and worked out that he needed to modify os-registry.c in the Nvidia kernel driver to have


Vreg_SoftEDIDs = 0 (disable checking - default was 1)
NVreg_Mobile = 2 (non-Compal Toshiba - default was ~0)


its worth a try?
