Hi, I've just installed linux on a fat partition. During the setup I 'tested' the screen resolution setting & everything was fine BUT when I boot up linux my screen is 'cut' into 4 segments & I am unable to login cos I can't 'see' the login screen due to this split screen. I have reinstalled it several times trying differant settings but nothing is helping. Can anyone suggest why it is acting this way? I am wondering if it's possible that it has something to do with the monitor frequency setting but my puter manual gives me no info on the monitor frequency. I am running Win Xp on the other partition & my machine is a laptop if this helps.
distro?? I initially tried to install using a Linux native partition but I had some major probs setting up the partition (I'm a real novice Linux user). My initial install was on a Linux Native but I found I couldn't boot into windows so I chose the to install on a fat partition even tho the setup warned me there would be speed penalties in doing so & that the fat file system was the only file system I can use within Linux. I dunno what that means but I accepted it.
as for the monitor; I guess it's a standard laptop tfx monitor, the graphics card was not a problem cos the Linux setup recognised my graphics card & when I tested the graphics setting I was able to view a complete screen with no problems.
