Debian Hardware :: Unable To Set Correct Resolution

Nov 1, 2010

I recently built a new computer and moved over my old graphics card, a nVidia GTX 275. Everything appeared to work fine, it booted with no drama etc.

I use my computer for work and gaming, all my work, web browsing, chat etc happens on Debian. I play games on Windows 7.I did a fresh Debian install on this box and everything went smoothly until starting xdm for the first time, it wouldn't go to a higher resolution than 640x480. I'd already installed the proprietary nVidia drivers and they appeared to be working fine, just at the wrong resolution.

Debian Multimedia :: Can't Seem To Get Resolution Correct

Jul 11, 2011

FINALLY got my personal server up and running again after my GPU's fan died. i rigged a new fan/heatsink on it but i can't seem to get the resolution correct. nvidia-settings (version 195.36.31) says 1280x960 but i have to pan around the entire desktop (like having a huge image zoomed in on a small screen).

Debian :: Jessie Can't Find Correct Screen Resolution

Jan 15, 2016

I'm using two screens where one Is cheep Denver TV screen with DVD player. I have just install Jessie on my PC. Before i had Windows and there was no problems finding correct resolution for this screen. Now Jessie recognize it as Unknown and the maximum resolution I can set is 1024x768 what is way to small even for this screen. At Windows resolution was something over 1200px wide. The worst thing about it is that this resolution stretches the display really ugly. You may think I'm making big deal of nothing but for me it is actually a deal. I'm graphical designer and I need to see display as it is.

Debian Configuration :: Samsung VGA Monitor With GT 730 - Can't Set Correct Resolution

Assuming this is the problem, does this mean I have to upgrade to Testing or install proprietary drivers?

Debian Installation :: Can't Set Screen Resolution / Get Correct Setting To Stick?

Feb 21, 2011

I installed Squeeze with LXDE on my old 600MHz Celeron, 256MB ram computer. But, every time I boot, the screen resolution is wrong. I can set it right with a few clicks of the mouse, but next time I boot up it has reverted to the wrong setting. I found that this problem has been reported on the LXDE forum, but the official response seems to be that it is not their problem.

How do I get the correct setting to stick?

Debian Multimedia :: Setting Correct Screen Resolution With Squeeze

Jun 18, 2011

I just set up my dad's pc with Debian Sqeeze. It runs perfectly fine and after trying a lot of distro's Debian is the only one that will not crash or freeze up X. Now we're forced to using my own 17" monitor instead of his 19" wide screen since the max res is 1280 x 1024 in Sqeeze. What he needs is 1360 x 768. I found out in the wiki that xorg.conf needs to be edited. Since the file does not exist it needs to be created by running "Xorg -configure" in tty after stopping GDM. when running the "Xorg -configure" command this is the output;

" vmware: Please ignore above "FATAL: Module vmwgfx bot found."
(++) Using config file: "/root/"
(==) Using system config directory "/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d"
Number of created screens does not match number of detected devices.
Configuration failed. "

It's an Intel Sandy Bridge integrated graphics chip. I've tried running "Xorg:1 -configure" as mentioned in a forum but that simply gives me a "unknown command" answer.

Ubuntu :: 10.10 Does Not Use Correct Resolution

Apr 4, 2011

I recently set up Kubuntu for my parents, and its working fine, other than the screen resolution. When I log in, it uses 800x600 when it should be using 1280x1024. I've tried to generate/ edit xorg.conf, but Kubuntu doesn't seem to pay attention to it. Also, I don't know if it matters, but it seems to be detecting a second screen that doesn't exist (see picture). That "monitor" can only go up to 800x600, but when I disabled it, it stayed off. When it was on and I pressed identify monitors, however, it put both labels on the main monitor. Here's the picture of the two monitors:

Fedora :: Screen Resolution Does Not Seem Correct

Mar 10, 2011

I have some experience with Linux (mostly Ubuntu) but absolutely none with Fedora. In fact I have needed to re-install twice just to get to this stage. I now have a fully updated Fedora 14 Gnome desktop. I have (finally) got Nvidia graphics drivers up and running. I can open the Nvidia Settings screen and everything looks ok except that the desktop screen resolution doesn't seem correct. I have a Sony Vaio with default screen resolution of 1920x1200. In Nvidia settings it was set to AUTO, but I've changed that as root user to 1920x1200 with a refresh rate of 60 Hz and rebooted. My desktop looks quite good, but it's not 1920x1200 - maybe 1600x1200? Perhaps. How do I confirm the current resolution?

I have run
glx info | grep direct
and the output is
Code: direct rendering: Yes
GL_EXT_Cg_shader, GL_EXT_depth_bounds_test, GL_EXT_direct_state_access,
Which I presume is ok?

Ubuntu :: Correct Screen Resolution Will Not Appear?

Apr 8, 2011

I just got a DVI cable so I can have a dual monitor setup, (one VGA, one DVI monitor), and when the DVI cable is plugged into our 20" widescreen, the correct resolution (1680 x 1050), a "No Signal" error message will appear on the monitor. When the resolution is lower with the DVI cable, it will show up, but everything will be a bit bold and blurry. When I plug our VGA cable into the VGA slot in this monitor, everything shows up fine.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: 11.4 - How To Get Correct Monitor Resolution

Jul 8, 2011

I tested OpenSuse 11.4 as a guest OS via virtualbox on a win7 32bit host. Output to my 16:9 screen was perfect with a plentiful choice of high resolutions. Now with Suse (32 bit) properly installed as the host the only resolutions are 1024X768 and below and I am stuck with 4:3 ratio. My PC is an Intel Atom D945GCLF2 which has integral graphics. The monitor is the VGA input of a Samsung TV.

General :: Monitor Resolution Was Correct But Not Anymore

Jun 11, 2010

About three weeks ago I bought a new PC and installed Debian Squeeze. I have a Samsung SyncMaster 2494hs monitor connected to it. Until about an hour ago the monitor resolution was 1920x1080 and there were no problems. Anytime I clicked on system -> preferences -> monitors, the monitor preferences displayed the monitor name (Samsung whatever) as well as the resolution (1920x1080). An hour ago I did my normal daily upgrade via synaptic (synaptic -> mark all upgrades -> apply). When the upgrade were finished, the system indicated that a restart was required, so I restarted.

After the reboot, my monitor's resolution is set at 1152x864. System -> preferences -> monitors shows the monitor name as unknown and the max resolution available is 1360x768. Xrandr shows the max available resolution as 1360x1360, which is obviously wrong. According to discover I have an ATI graphics card. I've also run ddcprobebut that outputs about 15 lines and then stops with edidfail. I do not have an xorg.conf on my system or, if I do have one, it is not in /etc/X11.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Correct Resolution Not Displaying Anymore

Feb 25, 2010

I installed ubuntu onto a desktop computer about a month ago. Everything was working well straight away, I had it outputted onto my TV (32 inch Hi Def Sharpe Aquos). The Graphics card is an NVidia Ge Force FX 5600. On installation and after a restart the computer detected the TV and actually gave the name of the TV in the settings automatically, in the system --> Administration Menu there is a programme that sets the resolution and settings for the NVidia card. This all sorted itself automatically and displayed in 1360 x 768 which was perfect on my TV. For some reason when I turned it on this morning it will only display in 640 x 480 or 320 x 240. xrandr only gives minimum of 320 x 240 and maximum as 640 x 480. How to rectify this?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: New Monitor - X Will Not Keep Correct Resolution On Restart

May 29, 2010

I've just bought a new monitor - Viewsonic VA2213w and am trying to set it up with Lucid. The resolution required is 1920x1080 @ 60Hz. I have an NVidia GTS250 with the proprietary driver v195.36.24 installed. I can set the right resolution in the nvidia-settings app, but it will not survive a restart. X always reverts to 1024x768. I have manually edited xorg.conf now to try to force the mode. The GDM login screen displays at the correct resolution, but on logging in X changes the resolution. Xorg.0.log shows the resolution being correctly set to 1920x1080 initially, then right at the end for some reason it is reset to 1024x768.

Ubuntu :: Resolution Of Viewsonic Not Correct On Intel Motherboard

Sep 1, 2011

I am using Ubuntu 11.04 on an Intel D510MO motherboard as a low-end surfing computer. The monitor, a Viewsonic VA1926w, has a maximum resolution of 1440x900. However, the monitor preferences shows a maximum of 1024x768 only. How can I bring up the resolution to 1440x900? The screen seems sort of flattened because of the incorrect settings. I think the video card (built in) of the motherboard is an Intel 3150.

Fedora Hardware :: Compaq W17Q Monitor - Correct Resolution Not Available

Feb 18, 2010

I have two displays: my main being an Apple Cinema Display (1920x1200), and my secondary being a Compaq W17q (1440x900). Previously all applications saw the secondary fine, being able to detect its name, native resolution, refresh rate, and so forth. But today, for no reason, after going into nvidia-settings the display is now being called "CRT-0" with only 4:3 resolutions available (1024x768 being the highest).

So now I'm stuck with the wrong resolution on my second monitor. All I can guess is that something more integral in Fedora is no longer able to read the EDID in it or something (I say integral as it's not just nvidia-settings, its everything, not to mention my install of Win 7 still reads the display A-OK)? Maybe I could just force the 1440x900 resolution? If so, how? Everything I've tried so far has either had no effect or resulted in glitch city.

Fedora Hardware :: NVidia Not Displaying At Correct Screen Resolution

When my notebook boots I get a high screen resolution. However, when I login it seems to go to a lower resolution that is not clear. I think this all started when I updated to a new kernel. So I reinstalled the nvida drivers using leigh's guide. However, I still can't seem to get it to display correctly.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 10.04 Beta - Selecting Correct Resolution For Monitor

I recently got a computer and installed the ubuntu 10.04 beta on it. I'm having issues getting my monitor to display at the correct resolution. It should be displaying at 1440x900, but the highest resolution I can select from the displays configuration panel is 1366x768, which is not even the correct aspect ratio.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: NVidia Drivers Do Not Support Correct Display Resolution

May 31, 2010

I am new to opensuse and have installed 11.2 KDE. It is simply perfect for my system. However after the initial setup the display resolution was set perfectly fine for my 18.5" LED monitor, default resolution was 1366x768, and everything looked good from desktop to fonts but the OSS drivers didn't support compositing so I decided to switch to nvidia drivers. I installed the driver as shown in openSUSE repositories page, for my 6600GT card. Now after rebooting everything is stretched,even the fonts look really ugly and fuzzy.

I am unable to find any mode in Nvidia XServer settings that would correct the current ugly stretched display. I am unable to set 1366x768 manually as well, doing so my PC won't boot to KDM but rather sticks to console. Now it's for sure that my monitor and display card supports 1366x768 resolution but it's just that nvidia drivers/Nvidia XServer settings won't let me set that resolution. How can I set the resolution or even better if I can enable compositing using OSS drivers then that would be great an dm willing to switch back.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade To 10.04 Leads To Loss Of Correct Screen Resolution / Wireless Networking / Sound

May 4, 2010

Excited at seeing the new features in 10.04, I clicked the Upgrade button tonight. I am now really regretting it! Problems:

1. My screen resolution should be 1280x1024 but the System>Preferences>Monitors control panel only shows 1024x768.

I think I have onboard Realtek graphics. Do I need to install proprietary drivers? Everything worked fine out of the box with 9.10!

2. The sound isn't working. Again I think I have onboard Realtek sound, and again it used to work fine without any intervention from me...

3. Although on first startup wireless networking was working fine, I restarted to see if that would solve the display issue, and wireless networking stopped working too!

I have an RaLink wireless card.

When I used Grub to choose, I got some error messages at startup (e.g. mount couldn't mount /dev), but then it did eventually start up and the sound and wireless networking are working again. But the resolution is still not fixed. It is now offering 1152x864, which it didn't previously, but no 1280x1024 (my screen's native resolution).

Red Hat / Fedora :: Unable To Set Correct Time

Mar 30, 2011

I have a number of CentOS 5.5 virtual machines running on VMware ESXi 4. Most of them are fine, but one of them has the incorrect time and no matter what I try I can't get it to display properly. The time seems to be 15 hours behind and I think that might be because the original source virtual machine was an appliance built in Canada and my timezone is Australia/Sydney.



I thought that was all of the settings I needed to make. Is there something else I've missed? Why can't I get the time right?

Programming :: Expect/TCL - Unable To Get The Correct Results

Feb 8, 2011

I'll post the entire code here, and then specifically highlight what is just failing in a fashion I'm apparently incapable of fixing a few hours later:


# The script should be called with a file in the directory called sshServerList
# That file has the following format:
# Line # | Contents of line


I've had all kinds of different results and problems, but I've never been able to successfully log into multiple servers, though the first server in the list most times works okay (though might not on this iteration). I'm a bit hack and slash and I would be very greatful not only for a solution, but any tips on how I should have done this and places where I could clean up my code.

OpenSUSE Install :: Update From 11.2 To 11.4 - Unable To Get Correct Display Using Zypper Tool?

Jul 10, 2011

I used the zypper dup tool to upgrade my HP Pavilion dv6000 laptop and my display is now broken into columns and partially obscured. I can barely see anything on it. When I ran zypper it stopped about half way and locked up.I then ran it again to completion. At boot, GRUB gives me my startup options as before and is clearly readable with good resolution. When I select openSuse to start it, the screen goes blank for a few seconds and then comes back with the screen problems.

The problem continues all the way into KDE. I have approximately four columns displayed but I can barely see anything. Most of the lower half of what should be displayed is obscured so I cannot load any applications. If I right click, I can make out the dialog box and select the run command. From there I reran the zypper command using the 'zypper up rpm' option and it says "nothing to do" and the "highest update version is already installed."

The display problem also exists if I use the failsafe boot option. I remember having to download nVidia driver last year to get a better resolution, but 11.2 (64 bit) worked great until the repositories stopped working and I no longer was able to load software. Now I can't use the computer to download and burn a DVD version of 11.4. Again, I do seem to be able to use the terminal, so I could presumably fix something with it if I had the right commands and I do seem to have access to the repositories.

Debian :: Get Exim To Use The Correct Domain Name?

Apr 20, 2010

I got this bounceback recently and I'm unsure of how to correct the problem. A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed: [withheld] SMTP error from remote mail server after MAIL FROM:<www-data@localhost> SIZE=2011: host []: 553 5.5.4 <www-data@localhost>... Real domain name required for sender address

The headers for the offending message are as follows:


What's interesting is that in some places the correct domain is given, but the return-path and the envelope-from are set incorrectly. I should add a few things: this machine is used only to send email newsletters and for email generated by the websites; staff email is handled elsewhere the output of hostname is myhost the output of hostname -f is when I ran dpkg-reconfigure exim4-config, I set the system mail name to "localhost" so as to "'qualify' mail addresses without a domain name." I have a feeling this is the source of my problem, but when I set this to, I ran into another problem: I essentially disabled local mail. Messages to root (e.g., the results of cron jobs) would show up in my logs as I want local mail to follow the rules set forth in /etc/aliases, not be converted to

Debian :: Authentication Failure With Correct Password?

Aug 8, 2011

I was hoping that someone could point me in the right direction. I just did an install and the os is up and running. During install, I set a root password and also set up a regular user account. The only option at login is the regular user acct. Needless to say, the os asks me to provide the root pw for just about everything I need to do.get an authentication failure. (I assume that this is the same as permission). I can find plenty of info on how to restrict access but nothing relevant to my problem. Just to rule out an install problem, I installed the os a 2nd time. I am very sure I have my passwords correct. One other thing to note is that on the 1st install, I used a different pw for root and regular user. On the 2nd, just to keep is as simple as possibl I used the same pw for root and reg user account. I am new to debian, but the distro that I have been using (slackware)
