Smile Out of range Problem with new flat monitor


Dear Folks,

I have just acquired an LG (model l226w) flatscreen analog monitor and being a fairly simple minded type I thought I'd connect it up to my debian 4 box and enjoy a nice big screen etc. However, as the system boots the usual text messages scroll up for a half minute or so (as with the old crt monitor) but then the screen goes a nasty shade of black and a message like :

'Analog out of range' 85.3 65 Hz Appears.

I reconnected the old monitor and in KDE I ran the control centre and tried some different screen resolutions and refresh rates but when I reconnect the flatscreen its always the same result.

I do have another computer which runs something called 'windows' so I guess if there is any configuration of the monitor required I could do it on that machine.

Gaphics card is radeon x600

Any help gratefully received,

Thanks
Greeb

The monitor should not need configuration, your X probably does. Refresh rates are my guess. /etc/X11/xorg.conf configures the screen settings (vertical and horizontal frequencies), look there. If there are horiz/vert rates configured, look at the manual/tech specs of the new monitor for correct values and add them there. Note that your old screen may then stop functioning (this is why SSH connections are good, you can do this from another machine over lan) if the values aren't correct for that, but the new should work.

Smile thanks - I have this file...

thanks - I have this file xf86conf which seems to have a monitor section with loads of different lines containing lots of dfferent columns and I don't know what they mean - some are obviously resolutions, but I wouldn't know what to change and don't want to crash my system

Monitor Specifications

You need to edit the configuration file and correct he Vertical and horizontal refresh rates in the config file to match the specs of the Monitor..

Heres part of my configuration, what you need to modify is highlighted in Blue..
Don't forget to backup the file before you start making changes..
cp /etc/X11/xf86conf /etc/X11/xf86conf.bak

Try the below that is if your monitor has the same specifications as the wa model on this page if this does not work then can you post the entire xorg.conf that was used and the /var/log/Xorg.0.log file you will need to put this one in two posts it is rather large.

Code:

Unhappy not quite...

Dear HappyTux,

Have been away on hols, but just tried the monitor configuration you suggested (xorg.conf file pasted below) I kept the original file contents entirely and pasted your suggestion into the file - you can see it defined by the comment #my bit .... #end my bit.

When i used this file as xorg.conf, the system started and it said starting kdm, but the kde interface did not start - i was left with a text screen.

I did not try to connect my new monitor, just stayed with the old one.

Also in your post you asked me to paste the contents of /var/log/Xorg.0.log, but this file was not present on my system - there were some along the lines of XFree86.0.log, but this is not what you needed?

Thanks for any further ideas,
Greeb

Unhappy further info

now tried with new flat monitor, but can only get a text screen. Am I editing the right file - xorg.conf or should I be editing xfree86.conf files?

Interestingly I am not getting the out of range message anymore.

Thanks for any help
Greeb

If you were using Xfree86 then the file on Debian would be XF86Config-4 if my memory serves me correctly it's been awhile so you should be using the xorg.conf. To be sure show us the output of apt-cache policy xserver-xorg and apt-cache policy xserver-xfree86.

Also check the output of /var/log/Xorg.0.log (or similar) for errors and warning
Code:
grep EE /var/log/Xorg.0.log
grep WW /var/log/Xorg.0.log

Err what version of Debian are you running ?

Debian Sarge (Old Stable) used Xfree86 so if that is what you are running then you would need to edit XF86Config-4

If you are running Anything newer than Sarge (Etch - Stable, Lenny - Testing, Sid - Unstable) then you would need to edit xorg.conf

Could it be we are giving you advice on The newer versions of Debian but you are still running an older version ?

cat /etc/debian_version

try:

system-config-display

You can run that from command line, and it should choose a working resolution. You can also use ctrl + and - I believe to change on the fly. Try when it says out of range. Maybe its ctrl+alt.

Unhappy more info from var/log/

Dear all thanks for ongoing suggestions I tried the grep WW command and got this output which looks a bit dodgy to my untrained eye..

Does this help at all? Graphics card is a Radeon X600 pro which seemed to work fine with the CRT monitor I had. I'm now running Deb 4.0 r0 (and have been since the beginnings of theses posts, it is only the monitor I've changed. All seems to be fine, but I can't see the Right hand end of my desktop and there's no more manual adjustment to shift it over.

If it helps, when I boot the machine, the intial text screens are partly lost off to the LHS of the screen (i.e. I can't read the left hand end of the text lines) KDE then starts, I log in and the problem is as I've said then at the RHS of the screen!

Thanks again,
Greeb

Try the below for the xorg.conf and if it does not work post the log file so we can see how everything gets detected copy it to a backup before starting X again or it will be overwritten.

Code:
# /etc/X11/xorg.conf (xorg X Window System server configuration file)
#
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.
#
# Edit this file with caution, and see the /etc/X11/xorg.conf manual page.
# (Type "man /etc/X11/xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
#
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
# package.
#
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
# again, run the following command:
#   sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg
