Nvidia grahics card GeForce 210 enormous display in centos6.3
Hi to all,
I have centos 6.3 and NVIDIA GeForce 210 graphics card. After disabling nouveau and installing driver
display is enormous and one inch right sided. I did like this :-
After gonig to runlevel 3 :-
# cd ~
Or wherever you stored you driver installer, in init 3 runlevel
I followed the guide, responde yes or okay when applicable.
When I see the prompt again,
But This was not happened. There was only 848x468 max resolution
nothing was clear.
And this card is wonking properly in Win 7 at resolution 1360x768
Please tell me what should I do next to resolve this problem.
I also tried adding vga=795 to your Grub options for vga mode of 1024x768
resolution and 16M colors. but nothing was happned except CLI changed to
high resolution and GUI was same enormous
Thanx in advance.
is it just the login screen that is bigger than the monitor
or is everything including the normal user desktop
if everything run "nvidia-settings" as root from the terminal from the normal user account
Also is this an OLD CRT monitor or a new LCD
the nouveau driver IS needed for the plymouth DE
so just moving the nouveau.ko will not uninstall it
the .run needs it uninstalled
allow it to blacklist the driver in udev
Respected Sir John VV,
In CentOS 6.4, it is not only low resolution (848x648) and also nvidia screen settings doesn't shows more than that. I tried about everything and at least 10 times of fresh installation of centos but nothing is going on right after installation of Nvidia driver also display is 848x648 and one inch right sided. I have LCD, I also blacklisted nouveau in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf and in grub.conf.
...the instructions on nVidia's website are very easy to follow, and don't mention those steps, unless you KNOW for certain that your initrd image was built with nouveau...was it?? They're typically NOT.
You should do a fresh install, or at least go back to your default initrd image, and make a backup copy of your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file. From there, boot into runlevel 3, log in as root, and execute the .run file. That's it.
by chance is this a laptop with a so called "GeForce 210" chip
or a 3d card
or is this a desktop install
and if a desktop it it a real install or a Virtual install
Respected sir TB0ne,
After fresh installation of CentOS 6.4, by going to runlevel 3 and installing nvidia driver, it asks for blacklisting nouveau but after restarting it doesn't work. We have to explicitly blacklist nouveau, then nvidia driver installs. But having enormous display on my system.
is this graphics card problem, should change it.
this is Desktop real installation. attached to the computer as PCI card.
when you run this
the ONLY screen size you can select it 848x648 from the drop down menu on the right ?
that is rather odd ???????
It should list a lot of sizes
and if the nvidia tool dose not run or display , then the nvidia .run driver DID NOT INSTALL
Cent like rhel and SL have a bit of an issue with blacklisting the nouveau and installing the .run
however it is normally better to use the kmod-nvidia instead of the .run
( unless you have been using the .run for YEARS AND YEARS )
install the CentOS elrepo
Once the driver is installed, you very obviously have to set things up to be like you WANT them. The computer isn't going to automatically 'know' what resolution you want. Once you log in, change it....again, a brief Google search will turn up lots:
You only have to follow the first part, that tells you how to set your screen resolution. And unless there is a real NEED for you to run a server-class distro on your PC, you really should run something geared towards consumer hardware, like Mint.
