General :: Screen Resolution ATI RageXL Video Card Fedora 12 - Show 1600x1200 Pixels

May 19, 2010

I just installed Fedora 12 on a rack computer. I know my screen has the ability to show 1600x1200 pixels. But I don't know what my video card can do. Right now my screen is stuck at 800x600. When I had Fedora 11 I remember it could go to 1024x768 or maybe a little larger. I can't really find a driver for the ATI RageXL, How to make the screen resolution as high as possible.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Selecting Video Card Drivers And Screen Resolution On 11.4 KDE

Apr 13, 2011

The installer has left me with 1,024 by 768 pixels and a driver that will not reach anything like the res my card and monitor will cope with. The display is currently blanking every 30secs or so for a very brief interval as well.

I may have missed something on the install but there didn't seem to be any opertunity to choose either a driver or monitor type. I was eating my dinner through most of it.

I had a brief flirtation with Mandriva and know that linux should be able to nearly fully support my monitor which is 1680x1050 by Belinea. Earlier open suse install gave the option of seting this sort of thing up and listed all of Berlinea's monitors as well.

The card is an nvidia 210 by Asus. Reported as a 200. I do not want to try installing an nvidia driver yet as I understand that there will be problems. Also I have a YAST ipv6 dns problem = no updates.

Fedora Installation :: Video Won't Show Any Effects And The Nvidia Card Won't Work?

Jun 18, 2009

I have a Geforce 9300 GS installed in my machine I am using 64 bit Gnome with a 64 bit system I downloaded this: Now my video won't show any effects and the Nvidia card won't work? This doesn't make any sense. Frustration to the max. I should have stayed with Fedora 10 at least it worked with downloadable drivers.

Hardware :: High-resolution Video With 2 MB Graphics Card- Play 480p Video ?

Jun 24, 2010

I've been playing around with Damn Small Linux 4.4.10 on my Dell Inspiron 3000 laptop for quite a while now, and this is the first time I've been downright stumped. To make a long story short, I'm trying to play 480p video on a machine with a 233 MHz Pentium processor, 112 MB of ram, and a Neomagic MagicGraph 128XD graphics card (NM2160). Crazy? Maybe, but I don't think so. I'm using MPlayer set to Xv mode with the XFree86 4.3.0 server, and so far, I've been able to get it to play 360p mpegs with minimal stuttering. However, MPlayer crashes with 480p. This is because the 128XD only has 2 MB of memory, which, after the 1024x768x16 screen takes its share, doesn't leave enough room for a 640x480 overlay.

The creators of MPlayer are aware of this limitation, and suggest adding the following line to my XF86Config file: Option "OverlayMem" "829440"

As I understand it, this is supposed to extend the video card's frame buffer into system memory, thus allowing the higher resolution video to play. However, it doesn't work, based on this output from my XFree86 log file: cannot reserve 829440 bytes for overlay...

Some other suspicious-looking lines from the log file:

General :: Screen Is Off Vertically By A Number Of Pixels?

Feb 16, 2010

Having recently installed puppy linux (pup431) on my sony pcg-c1mah laptop with a monitor of 1280x600, I am absolutely in love with it. It is so fast and smooth. However, there is one problem, the screen position is shifted up vertically, off by a few pixels (30 maybe). This makes most of the application partially off the screen, which is really annoying. Previously, I was able to install xubuntu (8.04) on it without any problem. The screen was perfectly positioned. It was the speed reason I decided to go for puppy linux. If xubuntu was able to set the screen correctly, why puppy linux can not.

Red Hat / Fedora :: 13 - Use Nouveau - Get Little Pink Pixels Appearing Over Screen In Random Places

Jun 19, 2010

I was using Fedora 12 before and using the RPMFusion nVidia proprietery driver and everything was fine. On fedora 13 Im trying to use nouveau with the 3d support and for some reason i get little pink pixels appearing over my screen in ramdom places on ramdom. please see screen shot below. I used to get this on fedora 12 also before using the nvidia driver, any clues how to fix this?

also, I have two monitors (well one is a tv) any how most of the time i dont use the tv, so in the settings i switch it off, but for some reason when i log out the default settings are to use both screens and have the login prompt on the wrong monitor, how do i set my monitor settings to be so in all situations?

General :: Ubuntu Purple Splash Screen With Blinking Pixels?

Apr 4, 2010

I had ubuntu 9.10 I upgraded to 10.04 after solving some problems (freeze at boot).

Since then, I don't have the ubuntu's logo showing up when I boot, but a purple screen with some blinking pixels. I didn't care much about it... but today my computer took too long at that screen (normally it was just 1/4 second, but today it was like a minute..). And it happened like 4 or 5 times in a row (Only at the 5th time I realised that it was not freezing up, but it simply would took more time)

After a reboot, it is again 1/4 second of purple screen but I don't want this problem to return.. so I want to get rid of the purple screen (I think it is an indicator of the problem)

Well, I already installed the graphic drivers (going to system > admnistration > hardware drivers). But it didn't solve anything. (I don't know if it is even related)

I searched in google, found something old (2006) and I think it maybe has some relation with my problems .. [URL]

But couldn't understand the conversation (i'm a linux novice)

My hardware:
ATI Mobility Radeon 4650 HD
P7450 2.13Ghz Core 2 Duo

Ubuntu :: Video Card Swap - Screen Using A Default Video Driver

Jan 25, 2011

If I take out the existing video card and put in another one of a different type (but not a different brand), how does Ubuntu behave? I know what Windows typically does. Windows starts up the screen using a default video driver which is at least 1024 by 768 and then asks you what this new bit of hardware is and asks where the drivers are. I'm pretty sure Ubuntu has default drivers of its own, but I don't know what their resolution is.

Red Hat / Fedora :: 12 External Hard Drive - Install Video Card Drivers Get Black Screen

Sep 17, 2010

i installed Fedora 12 on an external hard drive. Everything went fine with the installation and it was working perfectly until i tried to install my video card drivers. I have done this many times before and it has worked. I have an ATI card. Anyway after installing the driver i rebooted and now when it starts it show the loading bar on the bottom but then nothing happens its just a black screen!. The worst part is that when i go into windows and my external is plugged in windows wont read it and i have very valuable data on it. I go into disk management and it shows up but windows says that its empty. which is obviously not true because Fedora starts to boot. I really just want Fedora off my external and for windows to read my external with all the files still on it. Is there a way to get by that blank screen?

OpenSUSE Install :: Monitor Cannot Handle Video Card Resolution?

Feb 4, 2011

openSUSE 11.2 (i586)
VERSION = 11.2
on an IBM x3250

Problem is that after the screen comes up to chose the default version or failsafe, my monitor shows no input. If I delete the VGA 0x031 (i think that's the number) on the Options line in the screen where you chose the version, I get my command line interface.

Can I make the blank VGA options permanent?

Ubuntu :: After Installing The Drivers For NVIDIA Video Card It Changed Resolution?

Apr 11, 2011

I reinstalled my computer with Ubuntu 10.10 and the resolution was fine. I turned off my computer last night and when I turned it on today it's back to everything being huge and the screen resolution being 640 x 480. Then when I try to change it, it says my video card isn't supported. All I want to do is revert back to my stock video card in my computer and remove the nvidia one since obviously ubuntu isn't working with it.

Hardware :: Finding The Maximum Supported Resolution Of Video Card By Using Xrandr?

Aug 25, 2010

I am trying to find the maximum supported resolution of my video card by using xrandr. My card is an NVidia GeForce Go 7300 (in a laptop). The official documentation does not list specific resolutions that are supported. My laptop display is detected as "AUO" in the NVidia X Server Settings dialog (Ubuntu 10.04 amd64) and has a native resolution of 1280x800. However, I would like to know what is the maximum resolution that I could use on a display with the VGA adapter irrespective of whether the laptop's display is on. This is what I get from xrandr: Screen 0: minimum 512 x 384, current 1280 x 800, maximum 2304 x 864 default connected 1280x800+0+0 0mm x 0mm

1280x800 50.0* 51.0 56.0 52.0
1024x768 52.0 50.0


I am guessing the maximum width of 2304 would be for using TwinView with the laptop's 1280-width display next to a 1024 CRT or similar. Surely these cannot be the only supported resolutions. I would like to use a LCD display of width somewhere around 1600 pixels (in particular while turning off the laptop's screen so as to use the external LCD as the primary display) if possible.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Video Playback Beyond 2048 Pixels?

Apr 26, 2010

I have a 30" LCD with 2560x1600 pixel resolution. I would like to make and play videos at this resolution, but software decode is too slow, and the GPU accelerated decode (VDPAU) maxes out at 2048 pixels. It might be possible to decode 2Kx2K and cut-and-paste and reorganize the rectangles to fill 2560x1600. But someday I plan on getting a 4K screen (4096x2160 pixels) and I would like to support that too. For that it seems two video streams decoded by two GPUs and exactly synchronized would work.

Ubuntu :: Flash 10.2 Beta - Video Offset Due To Screen Resolution

Dec 8, 2010

I tried the new flash 10.2 beta in the hopes that they actually improved things, but it doesn't seem like they have.
1) Video's still seem to go to the 0,0 position with multiple monitors. Always the left screen.
2) Clicking on the non-fullscreen monitor still causes the fullscreen to exit.
3) My video is still offset and shifted on players like ....., probably due to screen resolution.

Ubuntu :: Screen Position A Few Pixels Off?

Oct 24, 2010

In 10.04 on a Shuttle the screen position is a few pixels off. I fix this with xvidtune for the session. I also get a new modeline. I build a new xorg.conf file (go virtual terminal, stop gdm, Xorg -configure, etc) and move it to /etc/X11. I introduce the modeline in the monitor section and reboot (I could do a service gdm stop...). Guess what, my screen is still a few pixels off. The documentation clearly states that if there is an Xorg.conf, it will be used. So what gives?

This problem has existed since the xorg.conf file was dropped. It is just plain silly that one has to engage in a geeky treasure hunt to correct a few pixels. This adjustment should be present in the System/Preferences/Montors. This is why Linux does not make it with ordinary users, making (superficially) simple things difficult.

Ubuntu :: 10.10: Menu Pixels Freeze On Screen?

Dec 7, 2010

Eee PC 1005HA : Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook Remix, using Desktop Edition at login screen, using Awn in place of Unity: No clue what's causing this. Menu pixels freeze, remain on top of windows. Cursor floats over, but interacts with the actual active window. Can't move it. This has happened several times now, but usually only lasts a few minutes. At the time of this post, these pixels have been frozen for at least 20 minutes. Relogging fixes the problem, but logging out and in again every time this happens isn't really an option.

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.1 - Can't Get To Boot - White Pixels At The Top Most Row Of The Screen

I recently downloaded Ubuntu 9.1 and burned it to a CD. However, I can't seem to get it to boot. I got to the main menu and selected to run it directly from CD, and the Ubuntu symbol showed up saying it was loading things, but then the screen went black and nothing happened even if I waited over 15 minutes. During this time the HDD light was flashing every second or two, and I could see about three white pixels at the top most row of the screen.

Ubuntu :: Left And Right Edges Of Screen Within 2 Pixels Are Unresponsive?

May 11, 2010

i just installed ubuntu studio and it seems to be working fine but i'm having an issue where the both the left and right side edges of my laptop monitor are unresponsive/unclickable for about two pixels all the way down. it's a minor issue that i could probably get used to, but it's particularly annoying when trying to use a scroll bar in firefox or any other window that when maximized would have it just against the right side of the screen. instead of simply swiping the cursor all the way to the right i have to stop just short of the edge in order to use the scroll bar/any other function.
