Problems with some full screen games, no video :(


Hi all

When I run some games I get sound and stuff, and I'm sure the games are working cause I can shoot and stuff, but theres no video! My LCD says
Quote:
Out of range
H: 27
V: 55
And goes black until I exit the game or restart the x server. Quake 3 and Tux Racer both do this. Unreal Tournament works fine however. The ndivia drivers are installed correctly and direct rendering works and all that.

Here are some of my specs:

17 inch Kogi LCD (60 KHZ at 1280 x 1024 max i think)
GeForce 5200 256MB
SuSE 9.0 freashly updated with all patches

Dont know if the rest of my system specs are necessaey so I'll leave them out for now.

TIA

Look at /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 and check that the refresh rates for your monitor are correct.
