after workin fine since installation i'm now getting problems with my monitor settings that i'm unable to resolve.
i seem to remember knocking the monitor adjustment controls whilst turning of the machine one night and ever since i get a big blue message in the middle of my screen telling me "out of range" whilst workin on linux (FC4) at 1024 x 768 resalution. If i reset to 800 x 600 the problem goes away but everything becomes huge.
i know that the native re for the monitor is 1024 x 768 and it works fine at this res in windows xp so whats going on??
I've tried fiddling with the screen res usind desktop--preferences--screen res and also desktop--system settings--display but no matter what i do nothing helps
More than likely that your horizsync and/or vertrefresh in the X11 configuration file are not correct. Please post hardware specs (specifically monitor make/type and videocard) and sections monitor, device and screen from the X11 configuration file (in /etc/X11)
Viewport 0 0
Modes "1280x800" "1152x864" "1152x768" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
My display settings claim my monitor is a L5AK5 and video card is intel 845.
I know the video card is bog standard as my pc aint flash.
The exact make and model of monitor i'm unsure of cuz i no longer have the box, It's a 15inch flat panel monitor.
I'm fairly certain its native resolution is 1024 x 768 cuz windows xp is running at this resolution with no problems
hope this helps
I do not immediately see something wrong in your configuration. If this is your monitor, I would remove the non-supported modes from the subsection with depth 24. The modes-line then will look the same as the modes-line in the subsection for depth 16.
I am also facing same problem.so while installation i choose text method.Then after loagging in single user mode
It works on fedora .Dont know abt Ubuntu and ........
You can insert values according to your monitor support.
