LCD Monitor wont work right in SUSE 9


We are trying to setup few linux computer for school work. Video card is Intel 82865G and Monitors are Dell E172FP LCD monitor. After installing, it recognized the video card fine but the monitor was not available.

So I tried a generic LCD monitor with 1024 768 60Hz. After picking the monitor and seting the resolution with 16 bit color it tried to test the X server. a screen with adjustment arrows suppose to apear, at least thats what I saw in my other computer with a CRT monitor( ATI graphics card, different system) appears. But it said something like no mode was useable or in that nature.

I tried to change the Horz and Vert Freq manually but X server wont start unless I set it @ 28-48 for Horz and 50-60 for Vertical Freq.

I am attaching the XF86Config file here if anyone can help that would be appriciated.

BTW Monitors Horz Freq range 30-80 KHz and Vertical Freq range is 56-76 Hz. Not sure if it is a monitor or video card issue


Sorry for the big message Tried to give as much info as possible I could think of. <---- a n00b (
Please Help
