(EE) Screen found, but none have a usable configuration.?


Does this error message when i run startX ment thats my screen is not supported with Debian Linux??

I got an old 14" Hitachi Mx screen, and get the same error message with an 17" Belinea screen..

I'm getting to wonder if my problem is something with the screen and not with my graphics card??

Could It Be So???

It is almost certainly a graphics card problem. Please post the model of your graphics card, the entire output when you try to run startx, and the entire contents of your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file.

You probably have the wrong settings in your XF86config file that don't match your monitor. However, you may try dividing the problem in two parts to proceed. First replace the video driver with the 'vesa' driver. This driver is a generic non-accelerated driver that will work with nearly all video cards. After doing that, work on the monitor settings.

Your distro may have a graphics tool to help you. Perhaps posting the relevant parts of the XF86config file would help people with the same monitor notice any errors.

Ok, I'm gonna typ it over to this computer... It will take some time, i don't have any discette driver on the other computer =)

I'm gonna try one more thing by the way, reinstall the whole Debian with an very old Pci Graphic Card. Only to see if there's any change with that one...
