Could you please tell us where you live?
Open a terminal and execute
and please execute in a terminal
lspci -k | grep -iA3 vga
and if this gives no output please
lspci -k | grep -iA3 graph
the lspci command with option -k will show for each device which kernelmodule is in use, I want to see which graphics-adapter your computer has and which kernelmodule is in use for this device.
Thanks for your questions.
I live in the Netherlands: nl_NL.UTF-8
Both commands do not give any output??
when i run lspci -k it says:
Absolute path to 'lspci' is '/sbin/lspci', so running it may require superuser privileges (eg. root).
I do not have a graphics problem but a characterdisplay problem.
I found out how to run this as root.
Then I see only on the first command the following result:
linux-makw:~ # lspci -k | grep -iA3 vga
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation NV34 [GeForce FX 5200] (rev a1)
Subsystem: XFX Pine Group Inc. GeForce FX 5200
Kernel driver in use: nouveau
02:00.0 Ethernet controller: 3Com Corporation 3c905C-TX/TX-M [Tornado] (rev 78)
Already during startup when all those luinux-messages are logged, I can see that not all characters are displayed on the left...
