There were a few similar cases to mine in the forum ... but after reading them I was still confused.
I'm trying to install Mandrake 9.0 on a comp with geforce 3 graphics card and a viewsonic vg171b 17in lcd monitor...but for some reason I can't get the video configuration to work. I get a thin gray line...then blank blackness for 5 seconds. On other modes/configurations I get a blur of color that just keeps scrolling diagonally. I've tried inputting custom monitor horizontal and vertical refresh rates (the ranges I used were directly off viewsonic's webpage for my monitor) and it still didn't work. What's odd is my monitor isn't listed under the "vendor" list of monitors...even though the vg181 and 151 are listed. I've tried everything I know how to do so far...so if someone could please help me.
