Hardware :: Using Geforce 6150 Nforce 430 And NVidia-drivers 196.*?

Jul 20, 2010

I used the videocard Geforce 6150 nforce 430 (NV4C) without problems untill the upgrade to kernel > 2.6.32 and nvidia-drivers > 190.*. After the upgrade I can use only nv and vesa in the Gentoo x86_64 and in the Fedora 13 x86_64. When I try to install Geforce 8800 GT everything becomes good with free nvidia-drivers and with proprietary ones in both distributions. use this videocard with the kernel 2.6.33(34)* and nvidia-drivers 196.* ?

Hardware :: Switching From Geforce 9600GT To Onboard 6150 LE Won't Display X

Jun 20, 2010

Initially I was using my onboard 6150, but I bought the 9600 and used it for a week. The fan was too noisy, so I decided to switch back, but now when gdm is started the screen goes black, the LED on my monitor turns orange. First I tried switching to a virtual terminal, which didn't work.

I did a hard reboot and popped in a rescue disk. When I tried mounting my root file system to look at look at the log files, at least /bin and /lib became inaccessible. Finally I booted into the live cd I'm running now.

Recently I switched my kernel (to 2.6.32-5) via apt, with some irregularities, but the problem existed before I switched so I doubt that's the problem.

note: I have a working xserver now, so there shouldn't be anything wrong with the graphics chip itself.

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Install 10.4.2 LTS On PC With NVidia GeForce 6150 Card

Mar 23, 2011

This is to request the communities assistance with the following: As the title suggests, I am attempting to install 10.04.2 LTS on a PC equipped with an ASUS M2NPV-VM mobo and integral NVidia GeForce 6150 chipset/card and AMD dual processors.

Result: While the CD with the installation software loads, the splash screen comes up distorted and is displayed as several black and white horizontal bars. I have tried this with low end monitors with a VGA input with the same results. It appears to me as if though the video driver on the installation CD is not suitable for the mobo's chipset, but I may be wrong.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Resolution Stuck In 800x600

May 18, 2010

I just switched to opensuse a couple of days ago and I noticed that my resolution was stuck in 800x600. I went and downloaded the nvidia drivers and went to install the driver for my monitor through sax2. When I tried to add the monitor driver I would get out of range errors. I rebooted and can now set the resolution to 1680x1050 which is my max. However, when I go to test these new settings the resolution shown in the window is 1400x1050. GPU: Nvidia GeForce 9600 GTX Monitor: LG FLATRON L227WTG

OpenSUSE Hardware :: 11.2 Nvidia Video - Cannot Get Anything Besides 1024x768 Or 800x600 Resolution

Jan 16, 2010

I'm having a real fight with an Nvidia 6100 video under 11.2. I cannot get anything besides 1024x768 or 800x600 resolution with any technique besides doing an upgrade installation over an existing 11.1 system. I want 1440x900 for this wide screen LCD and that works with the upgrade install but that gets me into other problems with versions and other stuff - not a desireable choice.

OK. I know that the Nvidia driver (190.53) works as all is well under the upgrade. When I do a totally clean installation or a clean install with the existing /home I get a default 1024x768. If I use sax2 to try and change it one of two things happens: the change is ignored or I drop to 800x600 and the ball game is over: I'm stuck there, period. Other than a couple of commented-out lines, xorg.conf is the same as it was or 11.1 (and back to 10.1 after allowing for version changes) after running sax2 but even nvidia-settings won't give anything beyond 1024x768 if I try and use that.

I've been through the how-to stuff and back messages here but I'll be darned if I can force the desired 1440x900. I had a similar issue with 10.2 or so where the only way to get it right the first time was to set the desired resolution to 1440x900 during the hardware setup during the installation but that seems to have disappeared along with xorg.conf which only appears after running sax2. I can't even use the manual diting tricks in xorg.conf I've had to use with some cards - it seems to be completely ignored and I can't see any real problem with it anyway once sax2 builds it. On a couple of machines with later version of the Nvidia video everything is working as expected, at least with GF 6800 and higher video.

Debian Multimedia :: Cannot Get Better Resolution Than 800x600

Aug 25, 2010

I just installed Debian 5 onto an older PC and cannot get a better resolution than 800x600. The PC is currently dual booting with Windows XP and in Windows I can get the resolution to 1280x768 without any issues. I checked the device manager in Windows and the video card shows up as VIA/S3G Unichrome II. What do i need to do to get this working at 1280x768 in Debian? I had Mint installed previously and it got to this resolution fine until I upgraded it to a new version, then it was stuck at 1024x768.

I have installed Ubuntu 10.10 as a virtual machine under my Win7 windows. Everything is OK except that I can not get resolution higher than 800*600.

Debian :: Display Resolution Stuck At 800x600

Nov 26, 2010

Recently when I rebooted the display resolution went to 800x600, where as before it was 1024x768. For some reason 1024x768 is no longer listed in (GNOME) System->Preferences->Moniters. Even after reinstalling Debian from scratch it's not there anymore. What can I do to fix this? System->Preferences->Moniters says Moniter: Unknown and stays that way even if I click Detect moniters.

Fedora Hardware :: 11 - Resolution Stuck At 800x600

My screen resolution is stuck at 800x600. I am using Fedora 11. The screen resolution used to go higher, but after a restart I have not been able to get it about 800x600. Below is a link to my smolt profile, [URL]This is my video driver Intel Corporation 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Family Graphics Controller. It is an onboard card. I have installed a new graphics driver which did not help. The name of it is, i915Graphics.tar.gz. Keep in mind I installed the driver after F11 wouldn't allow me to increase the resolution from 800x600.

Ubuntu :: Screen Resolution Changed To 800x600?

Oct 26, 2010

I've been using Ubuntu for about two years now, then suddenly today (after my PC accidently lost power) the screen resolution changed to 800x600 (it is, in fact, a widescreen monitor, and this resolution looked 'zoomed in'). The only two resolutions detected with xrandr were in the 4:3 ratio (800x600 and something worse). I followed some instructions, trying to reset the resolution to 1024x576.

I got as far as

$ xrandr --newmode "1024x576" ...


$xrandr --addmode default 1024x576

but when I

$xrandr --output default --mode 1024x576

I a message to the effect of 'your screen can only support 800x600 or less'. Ah-ha, I thought, you stupid machine; this screen has had a greater resolution for over a year.

And so, from System->Preferences->Monitor, I forced the computer to switch to this new resolution. When prompted, I reset.

My current problem is that when I turn the computer on, the monitor displays a floating 'Input Not Supported' sign. I Ctrl+Alt+F1'd, and now all 'xrandr' and 'cvt' commands return:

Can't Open Display

My first priority is to get the computer back to it's less-broken 800x600 state;

EDIT: I'm running Ubuntu 10.04

Ubuntu :: Screen Resolution Will Not Go Above 800x600 Anymore

Dec 12, 2010

After the latest kernel update (2.6.32-26), my computer will no longer start up with a screen resolution higher than 800x600. Before this update, my computer would sometimes startup with this problem, but this could usually be fixed with a restart (or two if necessary). At this resolution the panels and a lot of tool-bars will not display properly, so I am limited as to what I can do using the GUI.

my video card is an S3 unichrome (I think. It is built-in to the motherboard so I don't know for certain) my screen is an old ctr one I am running Ubuntu 10.04 on the 2.6.32-26 kernel

Ubuntu :: Broken - Stuck At The Resolution 800x600

Feb 23, 2011

It started when I first installed Ubuntu because I heard it was good and I felt like a change of OS, but it didn't recognise my monitor and because of that it was stuck at the resolution 800x600 (I think) and so it didn't quite look right, also it made going on the Internet really awkward, so I searched on the internet to find out how to fix it and I couldn't find anything that worked, so instead I installed Ubuntu netbook version thinking that it would recognise it because it is meant for laptops, so I put the ISO on a USB and it installed but if I tried to do it again it just tried to reinstall itself (I think it was just because I didn't delete the other Ubuntu) and so I just stopped using the USB, so I eventually gave up and tried to delete linux.

I used the Wubi installer for the original Linux so I used that (in the C drive in the Ubuntu folder) to uninstall it too which looked like it uninstalled it fine, I then made the stupid mistake of using EASUS (I think, I cant check anymore) Partition editor and deleted all of the linux sections and made the C drive bigger, after it finished that my laptop doesn't boot up and im stuck at a black screen with it saying to reboot and insert proper boot device. With it not booting I couldn't do anything, but then I remembered the USB and so I put that in and now it boots to Linux, but I really want my windows 7 back because this linux isn't even installed and wont install, the only way I can use it is by exiting the installer and then using the ubuntu that doesn't really look right and doesn't save anything I do. Is there anyway to get my windows 7 back or am I stuck using this?

Ubuntu :: Screen Resolution - Only Choose 800x600 ?

Mar 3, 2011

I have a good Asus monitor in which I can have a resolution of 1280x800 when using Mac Os (I have a Power Mac G4). However, when I try to have a better resolution with Ubuntu, the only resolution that it lets me choose is 800x600! There are no choices. I tried the "detect display" button but it doesn't change anything.

Hardware :: Monitor Resolution @ 800x600 After Update

Feb 2, 2009

Here are my stats:

Distro: Kubuntu 8.04
Video: Nvidia 7200 w/ 256mb
RAM: 2gb

What happened: I allowed two weeks to pass before running a full scale update of the kernel, KDE, video driver, and various other apps. The update went through and it prompted for a reboot. Once I did, KDE wouldn't load and it halted.

So I logged in via tty4 and checked out the xorg.conf file. It was really basic and figured I had to reconfigure.. So I ran nvidia-xconfig, then startx. The setting was at 800x600. So I went into nvidia-settings and it said I didn't have a video card with an nvidia gpu.

I copied an old backup xorg.conf and restarted X. Then into nvidia-settings but it wouldn't allow me to set the resolution higher than 800x600. At this point, I began searching forums for fixes. There was mention of envy. So I found it in the repositories and installed it. Still, I couldn't fix the res. So now I'm stuck and asking for assistance. Maybe it is really simple. I just wish I saved my old xorg.conf file before running the update.

Ubuntu :: 9.10 - Resolution Automatically Changed Into 800X600

Aug 21, 2010

I have a configuration of:
Intel Pentium Dual Core 2.40 Ghz cpu
Intel DG31PR desktop board
2 GB adata DDR2 (800 BUS) ram
NVIDIA Ge-Force 8400 GS NX84GS series PCI express

It's the first time I was installing a linux. First I collected an extra hdd for the installation. I used the entire drive for ubuntu 9.10 installation. It installed without any problem except the special features were turned off. It was said that the special features and animations would start only if their is a sufficient graphics processor. I picked up a solution and from the hardware drivers option, installed the nvidia graphics card. Problem started when i restarted my pc. The resolution automatically changed into 800 X 600 px. I changed it to 1280X1024 (which is highest for my monitor). But when I restarted again, it again became 800X600 px. And it becomes like this everytime I restart.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Modify Resolution 800x600 With S3 Driver

Sep 6, 2010

I've performed a fresh installation of Lubuntu 10.04 on a rather old PC hardware. Unfortunatly the displayed resolution is only 800x600 although the used graphic card can run with higher resolution (at least with Windows). According to this thread one could modify the resolution using xorg.conf. Below the information for the graphic card:
