display horizantly shifted for redhat 9.0, redhat enterprise and fedora core


Hi,

I have a NEC XP17 monitor.
I had Windows and Redhat 8.0 installed on the machine before.
For both these OS, the screen is used fully irrespective of the resolution.

When i installed fedora, the display does not use the full screen - it uses it more for 640*480 but the icon size etc is extremely large and not usable. same for 860*640. For 1024*780 the icons and tool bars go down below the screen.

An exactly similar thiing happens for redhat enterprise edition.

For redhat 9.0, the display gets shifted to the right and the full screen is not used.

I can't expand it to fit the screen since it changes the settings for windows then and i can't go on toggling it when i am switching to the other OS.

Any suggestions why this is happening and how i can rectify it?

thanks

This sounds more like an issue of an improperly configured graphics card. What kind of graphics card do you have? It is properly detected and configured?

I have the same problem with my install of Yellowdog 4.0.1 on an iMac G3 600MHz, (ATI RAGE 128 Ultra)

I'm not really sure how to try and fix it.

What resolution do you use under Windows?

Also, you are using "800x600" and "1024x768", right? The resolutions you posted above aren't quite the "normal" resolutions. If you put that into the X server, I think it will try to fit it, but the results may not be pretty.
