Screen problem with Red Hat 7.2


I just installed Red Hat 7.2 and it is great! Even detected my plug and play modem.

Just one problem. When I start X, there is about and inch and a half black stripe along the left side of the screen. I re-ran Xconfigurator and all the information seems correct.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

James

Can you use a higher reolution? Will your monitor support 1024x768? If so try editing your /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 file and change the Modes line from "800x600" to "1024x768". Just change the modes line, the other stuff is specific to my comp.
Try this and see whats its like. Once your done editing, you have to restart x.

Example:

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "Trident Cyber 9525 (generic)"
Monitor "Monitor0"
DefaultDepth 16

Subsection "Display"
Depth 16
Modes "1024x768"
EndSubsection

Can you stretch your screen? I mean does your monitor have buttons that allow you to change the way the picture on the screen looks. Shift your screen left, then stretch it to fit. I ahd to do this on one of mine, with a voodoo card.

What type video card?

And what do you select when Xconfigurator ask's about monitor? I always use generic non-interlaced monitor that can do 1024x768, 800x600 for my laptops and desktops and havnt had any problems.
