Smile Monitor out of timing


I just installed Fedora Linux 2.6, it has the same behavior showing "out of timing V=xxMHZ H=xxMHZ" with black screen.

I have tried to adjust the LCD monitor (sharp 17") but still having this problem.

Any idea? Thanks.

Look at the specs for your monitor (if you still have the booklet you got when you bought the monitor, or get the specs from the manufacturers website). Look for the vertical refresh and horizontal sync rates. They should be shown as a range (lowest to highest).

Then boot into either runlevel 1 or 3, and edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf. Look for something like this:
Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Monitor[0]"
VendorName "KDS"
ModelName "VS-195SN"
UseModes "Modes[0]"
DisplaySize 376 301
HorizSync 30.0 - 80.0
VertRefresh 30.0 - 80.0
Option "CalcAlgorithm" "XServerPool"
Option "DPMS"
If necessary, edit the HorizSync and VertRefresh to show the ranges in the specs you find. Then, in a console, give the command: init 5, to go to runlevel 5 (GUI mode).

If the previous answer didn't help you, could you please try describing the problem in more detail (and accurately):

I just installed Fedora Linux 2.6
It seems plausible that you have some version of Fedora with a series 2.6 kernel (which isn't Fedora 2.6.....there never was one of those). As the xorg set-up varies from version to version, you should be careful to get this right, if you want help.

Quote: has the same behavior showing...
The same behaviour as what? Some previous version (what previous version?)?
