Fedora :: NVidia GeForce FX 5500 - Resolution Degraded To 640x320 - Cannot Edit Xorg.config
Feb 11, 2009
There I had legacy driver from nVidia but resolution was degraded to 640x320 and in their version 8.10 I cannot edit xorg.config (there was not anythig about resolution) I hoped in fedora i`ll fix this.
i have a lenovo g550 with nvidia geforce g 105m i tried to install its driver on fedora 11 and 12 and i have followed the instructions of setup as in fedora sites and forums, the problem is after installation i have 6 equal screens 640*320 and i don't know how to edit xorg.conf
tried to install drivers for FX 5500 today, the one that Ubuntu recommended (173) and the current version (260). Both installs failed when it tried to set up python-support. Returned an exit status of "10". I don't know what that means. I could really use some help, because I just installed UT2K4, and without the driver, I can't play it. I'm running the latest release, as noted in the thread title. Dunno if it helps, but it was a clean install, because an alternate iso upgrade failed and mucked up 10.04.
After I installed the driver for my AGP GeForce Fx 5500, the system is not booting. I followed some instructions on a website and I disabled "nouveau" in the grub.conf file and then I installed the driver for the VGA. I need to mention that I updated my system to the latest software updates. Anyway, after I installed the driver (which it seems it was wrong for my VGA), the system currently arrive to a step in booting which it's : Starting apt [ok]. After that the system is hanging and not able to enter the desktop.
First off, let me say: I'm a long time Linux hobbyist and recently installed Fedora 12. I've been looking (some say "lurking") around these forums for a bit after I loaded it up and let me say: Leigh, You're an amazing young man! Keep up the great work! I've a question: I've just put together a hobby computer: Pentuim 4, with 1 Gig of RAM and a Nvidia Geforce5700LE. When I install Fedora from a fresh install, everything works great: nice screen resolution, good graphics, etc. but no 3d or acceleration, so I'm very limited on my programs.
So I decided I need to upgrade my Nvidia driver. I followed Leigh's Nvidia setup guide after installing Fedora 12 (all four steps!) everything seemed to go fine, but when I reboot, I quickly see the Nvidia splash screen, but the screen then goes blank. Well, not really blank, I can see what appears to be a kind of cross-hatch pattern, plus I can see what should be my mouse cursor on screen (it also is a square shaped pattern). I suspect it may be at a screen resolution that my monitor doesn't support. Once there, the computer pretty much doesn't do anything else. Usually I can break into the x driver loading and go to the command prompt, but this latest time I can't even do that.
I'm trying to get my resolution to match the resolution I use in Windows 7 which is 1768 x 992 (50hz) Nvidia Geforce 210, LG Electronics 37LF75 - At the moment the top and bottom are both missing off the screen. Everytime I try to adjust my xorg.conf file it hangs at boot. Not really sure what exactly I'm doing with it.

I am stuck at 1024x768 in Ubuntu 10.04 with the nVidia GeForce 7100. I installed the drivers suggested by nVidia on their website, but it doesn't seem to heighten my resolution any. 1024x768 is the highest which appears in nVidia X Server Settings.

Is there a way to fix this without having to buy a new card? I've read that the GeForce 7100 is pretty crappy, but I've got no money to space at the moment.
I recently purchased a cheap computer to use for everyday tasks. It came pre-loaded with Windows 7. The monitor I am using is a Vizio VX20L. It's native resolution is 1366X768. I have no problem with the screen resolution in Windows 7 but in Ubuntu, I am having some issues. I have the propriatary Nvidia driver installed in Ubuntu but for some reason I cannot get the screen resolution right. I am currently using a resolution of 1360x768 and the right part of my desktop is not on the screen.
I have tried to adjust the screen size using the monitor settings, but I still cannot get the whole screen to show up. If I set the resolution to Auto in the NVIDIA X Server Settings, it defaults to 1280X1024 and I can see my whole desktop, but it is streeeeetched. Here is some relevant information pertaining to my system:
I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 Integrated Video chip is NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE The driver I'm using is NVIDIA accelerated graphic driver (version current)[Recommended] screen is a Vizio VX20LHD
I have connected my computer to my LCD-TV (HDMI-cable) to enjoy my movies and such, on a big screen. I have nVidia GeForce 7050 so in nvidia-settings I've been using the TwinView configuration which allows me to see both the monitor and the TV.
There was a bit of trouble-shooting but it worked just fine until yesterday when I changed my monitor to a new one and on the way probably messed up in nvidia-settings. I thought it would be easy to fix it but the configuration (in nvidia-settings) is stuck on "separete x-screen" and doesn't allow any changes at all. When I hit the "Detect display" nothing happens although I have the TV connected!
Maybe my xorg.config could tell somebody what is wrong. I've been messing around with the file and made lots of changes acc to different advices but I really don't understand the options and settings so I'm afraid I'll soon do something inreperable.
I am running 11.1 with an nVidia GeForce FX 5200 graphics card and I have configured the monitor and graphics card via "sax2 -r -m 0=nvidia". My xorg shows all of the correct monitor settings and screen resolutions, yet when I go to the Display settings or nvidia-settings, it does not offer me any of the 16:10 aspect resolutions that are in the xorg.conf file.
Here is my xorg.conf:
# /.../ # SaX generated X11 config file # Created on: 2010-02-22T00:43:08-0500.
I am using 10.10 64bit with a Nvidia GeForce Graphic Card on my Acer 5741G 434 Notebook.
I have always used Compiz and without it I can barely use my Notebook. Apparently I had to install the Nvidia accelerated 3d Drivers (current version) in order to use Compiz.
However I cannot enable the "normal" visual effects (right click on desktop / change bakcground/ visual effects) that are necessary for using compiz.
Also everytime I reboot my resolution goes back to 800x600 although I saved the resolution to 1366. So everytime I start my Notebook I have to go to the Nvidia X server settings and set the resolution to 1366.
What I tried until now:
- I tried to reinstall Ubuntu twice!
- I tried to unistall all nvidia Drivers and install through the terminal using the command "sh" the nvidia drivers i downloaded from their website
- I tried to use the nouveau open source driver
- when I boot a logo of the nvidia BETA driver appears
- for the past couple days I even experienced another problem: the windows do not have the minimize/close and maximize buttons
I am even willing to install the System again!
I had nothing but problems with the latest 10.10 ubuntu distribiution.
After closing some game my display resolution turned into 640x480 so I tried to modify xorg.conf to the following but I noticed that there are disappeared sides (at right & left) in my monitor and fonts appear small and ugly! How can I fix this issue?
The Quadro dual-card has no problem driving two 19" monitors, but the GeForce will not wake the third 17" monitor from power save mode. The BIOS indicates that the Quadro is the primary card. I am trying to use Xinerama to activate the GeForce. So far I have only seen the GeForce and 17" monitor work if the Quadro is physically removed. In all cases I have been using nouveau. I'll attach my xorg.conf, Xorg.0.log, and smoltprofile.txt. My xorg.conf shows two monitors: monitor0 (19") and monitor1 (17"). monitor0 is actually two identical monitors which the quadro treats as one large monitor.
I installed Fedora 12 nowdays and tried to install the driver as Leigh posted in here: [URL]...Well i had some depadency trouble by installing kmod-nvidia and xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i686. I enabled rpmfusion repo of course. I don't have anything isntalled just the base programs what fedora installs. I updated the kernel and installed kernel-devel aswell.
Forgive me if this was already posted but I couldn't find it. I am attempting to install F10 on my Acer Aspier 8730-6031, but I have video drive compatibility issues with my 9300m. Does anyone know of any drivers for this card or any fixes?
I want to install the proper drivers for my system .the drivers are here: [URL] and come in a .run format (archive format I guess?) Anyway. If someone has done this with these drivers or other nvidia drivers and has some advice. Please, I'd really rather NOT end up screwing up my system or end up accomplishing nothing at all because I did it wrong.
I just installed F13, congrats to the community for the awesome work - everything worked straight out of the box .
Unfortunately, I need to install the proprietary NVIDIA driver for my job (CUDA stuff). I first installed F13 + kmod-nvidia from Fusion on a machine with a GeForce 7200GS, and everything works ok (after turning nouveau off).
Then, I proceeded to update another machine featuring a GeForce GTX280 (again, nouveau blacklisted). The install was apparently successful, but X turned out to be extremely unstable and always crashes a few seconds into the session, either by leaving a blinking screen or by causing the machine to reboot. Thinking that some file might have ended up corrupted, I reinstalled F13 and tried nvidia-graphics from ATrpms. The result was the same: computer hanging a few seconds into the X session. Finally, I installed from the NVIDIA sh package, and again same outcome .
The card is most likely ok because I ran it with F10 till yesterday flawlessly, so I can only guess that it is the new version of the driver coming broken from NVIDIA. I tried installing version 185.18.36 but it cannot figure out the version of my kernel headers, and the legacy versions available from the repos do not support the GTX 280, so I cannot be positive about version 195.36.24 being bugged.
Both machines are x86_64 (a Phenom II and a Core i7). Especially, does anyone know how I could get version 185.18.36 to run on F13?
I was following this guide to install my nvidia drivers...[URL] but when I got to the step about checking to see if my card is supported I'm to check here...[URL] I don't see my card anywhere in this list So I kept reading and found this posting ... [URL] and it says that it is support under the geforce 200 ... The last time that I installed this driver my X session quit working ... I was able to ssh back into the laptop and undo the driver install so now i'm a little gun shy about trying it again...
Fedora Core 8 did not recognize my Geforce 7150M display adapter (in a HP DV6000 laptop), neither did Fedora Core 10 I tried yesterday although this laptop is now already over one year old (I have used Vista because it works out of the box but it sucks as you might have guessed). That could be something I'd like to complain about but I choose not to, I simply want to know how to install Fedora 10 from a live CD (that is all I have now, no DVDs and not too much cash to buy some..) Live CD boots and I can access command line. If I have understood correctly, Nvidia proprietary driver supports my display adapter but it is not included in live cd so I could use X after installation. Problem is that I don't know how to successfully run the installer from text mode. I tried to execute 'anaconda' but it cannot find packages to install when it comes to that. There seem to be no instructions how to install from a live CD that I could find using Google. For sure someone knows what command to execute to begin installation?
I am a recruit for Linux and install FC12 on my PC. The motherboard is ASUS M3N78-CM. The nvidia GeForce 8200 chipset on the motherboard is directlt used for vedio. The driver : NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-190.42-pkg2.run is downloaded from Nvidia website, but it can't drive the chipset successfully. So i can not start X-window. If anyone has a solution to this problem?
I've enjoyed accelerated 3d graphics for years with this laptop, but since moving from CentOS 5.3 to FC12 I have had no 3d or opengl working at all.My install seems good. I'm running right now with the 'nvidia' driver in 1920x1200 res with no real problems except the lack of 3d. I have just finished trawling the forums again, coming back to: F12,F11 & F10 Nvidia driver guides [URL] I uninstalled all my nvidia packages, re-installed only "kmod-nvidia xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i686" and dependencies, ensured 'nvidia' was my selected driver in xorg.conf (using nvidia-config-display disable, then enable), and rebooted, and still no joy. No errors in Xorg.0.log. My 'glx' extension is loaded. 'nouveau' is rdblacklisted. SELinux is disabled. I have 3Gb RAM and so have chosen not to use the PAE kernel or modules.

My friend just recently gave me an Nvidea Geforce 4 64mb, and it is supposed to be better than my ATI x700 Pro. I was wondering if there was openGL support for this card, and how do i replace it with my ATI card?
