I have two graphics cards in my computer. One is a crappy built-in nVidia GeForce 6150 SE, and the other is a high-end (as of 2008) GeForce in the 8000 range. I would like to use the latter, but I can't get anything to detect it. Testing which is in operation is easy: they have separate video outputs. I've tried changing the BIOS settings, but to no avail. I'm stumped. Could it be that my other card is dead? How could I test it? I'm fairly certain that it worked back when I used Windows, as I remember having to use my DVI-to-VGA converter (the other card's outputs are all DVI).
I have a fully operational PXE boot server, the client boots up and begins the setup process however, fails to detect the hard disk, I have tried with ubuntu 8.10, 9.10 and 10.10 and none of them will see my hard disk, I boot to the cd and it sees the hard disks with no problem, so apparently the pxe boot server isnt serving up the neccesary drivers or something to detect my hard disks properly. They are just IDE drives and like I said, regular cd install detects my drives just fine.So if anyone here has any information that may help shed some light on this issue I would be so grateful
i have lenovo g450 and has installed windows 7 ultimate for a long time ago. i want to try ubuntu natty in my lenovo with dual boot system. after loading natty disk and click on install ubuntu it said that this computer currently has no detected operating system and i have to choose erase disk and install ubuntu or something else. i have created drive c with 50 gb for dual boot.
I have a Gigabyte GA-MA74GM-S2 motherboard with integrated graphics that shows up on lspci as an ATI Radeon 2100. I also bought a PCI-Express Nvidia graphics card so I could use the VDPAU feature on Linux (plays H.264 in hardware). The BIOS has three settings about which display to initialize first:
I cannot get anything, not even a splash screen or POST messages, to emerge from the PCI-Express graphics card. (I'm using a DVI connector; the card also has an HDMI output.)I cannot get the kernel lspci to see the graphics card; the only VGA controller it acknowledges is the integrated one.Running dmidecode acknowledges the existence of an x16 PCI Express slot, and it says
Current usage: Unknown
There is an additional BIOS setting called "Internal Graphics Mode" which is normally set to "Auto" which means it is supposed to prefer a PCI Express VGA card. I set it to "Disabled" which now means I'm getting no output at all. I will soon be learning how to do a BIOS reset!
Other information: The PCI-E card is a MSI N210-MD512H GeForce 210. This is a fanless card. Although there are no fans to see turning, the heat sink on the PCI-E card is definitely getting hot, so the card is getting some sort of power.It gets all its power from the PCI-E slot; there is no external power connector.The BIOS is an AMI Award BIOS.how can I make the PCI Express graphics card visible to Ubuntu?
I have run into a problem with a existing workstation I can't seem to figure out. My configuration:Ubuntu 10.10 64 ASUS M2N68-AM Plus MB w/ Nvidia Geforce 7025 graphics.Has been running for almost exactly one year beautifully. System suddenly froze. When I rebooted, system stopped with message saying it could not detect graphics or KB or mouse. I suspected hardware failure but when I booted from live CD, It ran fine. I then ran e2fsck -c and found no bad blocks but 1 messed up inode which it fixed.
I assume at this point the only problem is some lost configuration on video. I first tried apt-get nvidia drivers. this got rid of the message but now X will not start because of "no valid modes". Tried running nvidia-xconfig but it exits without changing anything.All user files seem to be OK. I'm not going to have to nuke this thing just to restore X am I?
I just bought a new graphics card and installed it. it works perfectly although my sound worked perfectly this morning and I think the graphics card is overriding my built in sound card. I need help fixing the sound. The graphics card I bought is an ATI Radeon Cedar HD 5450 The sound I want to use is HDA VIA VT82xx when I run alsamixer I get Card:
very much like everybody i am also waiting for centos 5.3, because 5.2 could not sit on my notebook due to obvious driver issues. would anybody tell if centos 5.3 support my x3100 graphics card and bcm 4311 wlan card?
I want to connect my OpenSuse 11.3 Distribution with the Internet via WLAN. But i can't open the KNetworkManager. It doesnt respond to my clicks. If I click on the KNetworkManager "Button" it doesen't react.
In Fedora 10, I cannot get to the installer because it shows these messed up strips graphics (its not due to my graphic card, my graphic card is supported 7600gt) in non-quiet install it shows logical errors and i/o errors.
Ever since I switched from windows I miss the fact that gaming is not all that well on linux. I think that is pretty unfortunate. The games I'd like to play are team fortress 2 and a bit of civilization 4. Luckily for me, these games are known to run good through wine. But the bad thing for me is that I had an old ATI card and I was stuck with the bad driver that caused all these games to crash. So I had it with this. Each time I wanted to play I needed to restart to windows. So I saved some money and yesterday I bought a geforce 640 GTX.
When I boot up the computer for the first time with my card it all seems to work well. It just did not detect my new card automatically. And now I have to confess I'm not all that experienced with ubuntu and getting some things done. But I thought, ah well.. 10.10 is coming up, lets update to the release candidate and see how things are going from there. A new card and new version of ubuntu, woohoo! Now after the update it did detect the driver and it seems to run pretty well, but I do have a few problems.
I have a small second screen to extend my primary desktop. In the NVIDIA X Server Settings and under the tab 'X Server Display Configuration' I have the second screen in 'TwinView' and it seems to work well. Untill I restart my screen that is. After a restart I have to keep activating my second screen. I was kind of hoping it'd save the settings.
The other problem is what I get when playing team fortress 2. I'm not sure this is the right place to ask here, or I should better head to the wine forums or something, but I do hope to fix this. When I have the second screen enabled, and I'd like to start team fortress 2 it gives a warning: 'Failed to create D3D devide'. Doing some googling, it seems to be a resolution problem. After I disable the second screen, it works again.
Then with the second screen disabled it seems to finally run. But unfortunately after 5/10 min the I get kicked out of the server with the message 'Disconnected: Client timed out'. I did some googling arond and there's not much results relating to wine/ubuntu, but most windows users seem to have this problem because of a firewall. Now, I'm using ubuntu and not using a firewall as far as I know (there's probably some build in, I just take that as it is ). But maybe anyone here knows how to fix this and I do get to finally play team fortress 2 on ubuntu?
I installed a sound card but when I go to System->Preferences->Sound and go to Hardware it's not showing anything at all. If I boot from the Live CD then it will show the card and it works. How can I make my Linux installation detect this card? I was thinking that I could somehow copy the necessary files from the Live CD to make this work, but maybe there's an easier way.
I own a ubuntu-server (2.6.35-22-server x64) - a home router / NAS / etc assembled at the mini-itx motherboard with no attached keyboard / display.The problem is that the system does not detect the occurrence of SD-card in a USB-card reader. Card reader is normally detected and visible in the system.When I insert SD-card in cardreader, in "dmesg" and, accordingly, "udevadm monitor" does not display any events.If reboot with connected SD, everything works fine, but, of course, there is no event when removing SD.On the forum topics if problems arise, it is only with automounting. But it's not. I do not have events from kernel, that he discovered the SD-card.In the desktop version there is no problem.I installed the generic kernel; comparing kernels configurations for desktop/server versions, comparing the output "udevadm monitor" at the time when I inserted the SD-card on desktop/server, etc. - useless.I don't have more ideas. I don't understand something. Probably there is no package.Almost ready to give up, put the desktop version and delete unnecessary.On desktop versions missing events displayed as follows (the output "udevadm monitor" when inserting SD-card):
trying to get everything set up in Debian lenny on my new Toshiba staellite L500. I have successfully installed the wireless drivers and graphics card and have them both up and running. But I'm having trouble with the sound card. Specifically, it appears to be installed but I cant get any sound or any devices related to sound (speakers, volume control, alsamixer) to work at all.
so, when i first got my laptop it came with vista and the ethernet worked fine, then when I decided to install Karmic about 9 months ago it still worked fine. After a while the update for lucid came out so I upgraded to that and then the ethernet started getting buggy. It would only work about half the time that i wanted it too and the other half of the time it would just stare at me and not move anywhere. So along with a couple other bugs I decided to format my harddrive and downgrade back to karmic and await the 10.10 release. unfortunatly my ethernet woes carried with me and they still would only show up on occasion. then about half way through my time with karmic round 2 it stopped altogether, and with the upgrade back to lucid it hasn't seemed to solve itself.
I ran through ifconfig -a, lspci and sudo ifup -a but they all tell me that the device doesn't exist.
I've put a second video card in my computer running 9.10(64-bit) to setup a 3rd monitor.
I'm using the following video cards with the 190 driver from nVidia: Video Card 0: nVidia GeForce 9500 (PCI express x16) Video Card 1: nVidia GeForce 6200 (PCI)
but when i run lspci the second video card isn't seen in the list. The bios is set to automatic detection, and I've seen it work on a identical second system that has windows 7 so I know the bios is capable of running the two cards concurrently.
I've verified the 190 driver is compatible with the 6200 series and have tested it by setting the bios to use the (PCI) device manually.
