Fedora 9 Display Out of Range
Posted on 2008-10-16
OK Have searched the fedora section for relative posts but i haven't seen 1. So i'll post hoping that im not covering ground already covered in a previous post.
When i try to run the Fedora 9 graphical anaconda setup , the monitor blacks out and says "out of range"
When i run the intaller in text mode, then complete it , when i startx it does the same thing.
I am using an Nvidia 6800 GT and 22" widescreen Veiwsonic monitor.
I have read many post relating to editing manually the conf file. but am new to linux and dont know how to use some of the built in text edotors , so if you want me to edit please include relevant command line tools.
When i try to run system-config-display again it produces the monitor displaying "out of range".
Apparently there are issues with the Nvidia drivers and the new version of x being 11. is there any way around .
Or should I just swap to another graphics card I have a spare ati 3400HD
Help , please linux gurus...
