My display is shifted 8 inches to the left and loops around, but the middle of the desktop is not visible. From left to right the monitor shows (right side of desktop)(vertical black bar)(left side of desktop). I have formatted and reinstalled, and also swapped out video cards and the display is the same.
This was a fresh install, previous system was FC6, but I threw in an old GeForce FX 5200, and my first objective was to get s-video out working. What I did was:
added the livna-release-7.rpm
yum install kmod-nvidia (I guessed I had a standard kernel...)
I logged off and logged on as root, and then my display was off. I got to a console and tried nvidia-config-display enable, and it said it was already enabled. I rebooted, got a failure to start xserver or something along those lines, and I walked through some basic prompts. This did restore the display, but I could only get 800x600 resolution. I played with the then present Nvidia control app, didn't get any results, and decided to reinstall... and not do that again. The display is fine during the install until after the reboot, then the display messes up again. While booting, the Fedora screen that says 'booting Fedora' looks fine, it's just once it gets to the splash screen. Thinking somehow some settings were retained (even though I removed Linux partitions during the install), I removed the partitions with partition magic and tried again. No luck. I re-seated the video card, no luck. Swapped video cards, no luck.
Thanks in advance
