Talking Blank screen on X interface


Hello!

I've installed Fedora Core 5 on my new Asus A6VA-Q027H notebook (mounting an ATI Radeon X700 videocard).

Among the problems I have (a bunch, actually) the most urgent is that I cannot have any 'X' graphic interface - the screen becomes blank!

So, for both installation and graphical mode, I have to link the notebook to my old CRT screen.

I have had the very same problem with Suse 10, only that the graphical installation was working.

I am aware that there is an almost classical "ATI problem" with recent distos... any solution?

Thank you

Chances are it's a refresh rate problem and nothing to do with your video card. Try installing using text-mode or the CRT and then once you've installed, run sax2 (I think, never used Suse but read a lot here) to set up your laptop screen.
