Graphics problem


Hello linux people,

I need help concerning my graphic troubles.
For the first I'll tell what system and hardware I have on my PC:
Linux Slackware 10.0, AMD 2600+, GeForce 5200 and 125Mb on my graphic card.

Now to the problem. When I start X in resolution 1280x1024@85Hz my screen is kind of unstable. It's flickering little bit and when i have dark background I see small white lines going up and down on my screen. At the resolution 1024x768@85Hz everything goes fine. My screen has no problems to manage high rosolutions in windows and I have even higher than 1280x1024 so that's not problem. There must be something else.

Anyone has a clue what it is?

Here's a part of my xorg.conf code:
Code:
Section "Device"

    #VideoRam    131072
    # Insert Clocks lines here if appropriate
	Identifier  "GeForceFX"
	Driver      "nv"
	ChipSet     "GeForce FX 5200"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
	Identifier "Screen 1"
	Device     "GeForceFX"
	Monitor    "Hansol"
	DefaultDepth     24
	SubSection "Display"
		Viewport   0 0
		Depth     8
		Modes    "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
	EndSubSection
	SubSection "Display"
		Viewport   0 0
		Depth     16
		Modes    "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
	EndSubSection
	SubSection "Display"
		Viewport   0 0
		Depth     24
		Modes    "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
	EndSubSection
EndSection

hi steam,
Try cutting the refresh rate down to 70 instead of 85. It's in the xorg.conf file under <Section "Monitor">.
Refesh rates generally go down as resoluton goes up.

You have not installed the linux drivers for your card.

download them from here:
http://www.nvidia.com/content/drivers/drivers.asp

Although The driver the system is using is "nv", it should be "nvidia"

This may resolve you graphics problems

Hi folks,

Thank you for your answers. Actually I had some troubles installing nv drivers but at the end I succeed.
No everything works fine.

Thanks again.
