OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Monitor Not Recognized - Wrong Resolution

Jun 15, 2010

I have problem with resolution (@gnom desktop). In Yast --> videocard & monitor is all right. There is correct resolution 1366x768 (WXGA). Also the videocard ( I don't have really one, only chipset "Intel Mobile GM45" ) is correct recognized. But Monitor isn't recognized, and I don't know which one I have (It's notebook from acer).

Nevertheless if I go direct in monitor preferences (at the bottom the monitor with a ruler symbol) the resolution is set to 800x600 and I can only change to 640x480. The monitor is as 15" recognized (I have 15.4", even a bit more broadly - 1366x768) and now I don't know what to do. All symbols, all programs, everything is huge! How is it possible to configure the correct one resolution?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Graphics Card Not Recognized - Monitor Native Resolution Not Available

May 8, 2011

I actually do have a GeForce4 MX 460 in this pc. I have a 7950gt in a different pc. Oops. I guess the MX 460 cant do 1600x1200 on the dvi output but somehow it can do it on the vga output? I guess I could just use a vga connection instead of the dvi connection.

The problem I'm having is that my LCD monitor (acer AL2021) can't be used at it's native resolution of 1600x1200. This is probably because my GeForce 7950gt graphics card is not being recognized. Xorg seems to think my card is a GeForce4 M 460. (It's not, really!) I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.

Here's what I've been doing for the last few hours:

This didn't work. 1600x1200 is still not listed.

Tried to run nvidia driver installer:

Ubuntu :: Wrong Monitor Resolution At Bootstrap

Sep 3, 2010

Sometimes, randomly, when turning on my Ubuntu laptop (HP 6730b, Ubuntu 10.04) I get a wrong monitor setting (much lower resolution than normal) and it is not possible to set it correctly because the menu buttons are wrongly placed and some are not present (probably there is not enough room for them) I have no other way than to restart the system to get the right resolution. Can someone tell me this inexplicable (to me) behaviour? Of course I didn't change anything in monitor settings...

General :: Wrong Monitor Resolution Set And Now Screen With Many Colors

Jul 25, 2010

I am new to Linux (Ubuntu 10.4 LTS on a Thinkpad T40), now just two days, and had everything working nicely. But since I wanted a better higher resolution I tried to set the monitor resolution to a higher value. After selecting a higher resolution first the screen went black and now it has a white background and is steady but has flickering areas. The system is still working. How can I go back to the resolution that was working?

General :: Native Monitor Resolution Gone - Where Is The Wrong Info Stored

Mar 2, 2010

On my Acer laptop wit ATI Xpress 1100 I have a native resolution of 1280 x 800, and Linux Mint 8 (of the Ubuntu family) offers that resolution without a problem. However, a few days ago I connected my laptop to my TV, and since then the correct resolution setting has been LOST. It doesn't appear anymore in the Display settings and so I had to choose a lesser resolution - I am now looking at a less sharp screen! How can I delete it? I hope that I don't need to reinstall...

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Not Getting Full Monitor Resolution

May 27, 2011

Got a system that I've been using for a long time now without any problems. Now suddenly it won't use a higher resolution than 1024x768.I never added any mods to the configuration and have not added any software other than recommended updates it quite a while.Any ideas what happened or how to fix it? I checked and the monitor/graphics card will still do upper resolutions with windoze so I'm guessing the hardware is alright.Using OpenSuse 11.3, 64bit, on a dual core athalon with a Sapphire ATI x1600 graphics card and a 22 inch flat screen that is supposed to go 1600 x 1050.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Wrong Screen Resolution Options On Media Centre

Apr 22, 2011

I have a desktop with nvidia 9300 connected to a 37" LG hdtv lcd with a VGA analog cable. I'm using this machine as a media center. Up until now it had a windows XP and (besides the fact that it had windows) it work with the correct resolution - 1920x1080. I've installed Ubuntu (the latest available) after to many crashes during hd movies...

I installed the nvidia restricted drivers (the display is plain black otherwise) and my tv is being recognized as a CRT monitor. Guess it's because I'm using the vga connector instead of the dvi one. The problem is that the highest resolution it let me choose is 1024x768. I tried to mess around with the xorg.conf but i discovered it doesn't exist.

Debian Multimedia :: Login Greeter On Wrong Monitor

Apr 7, 2016

I have a laptop connected via HDMI port to different external displays throughout the day. I have configured the displays (Settings > Displays) to turn off the laptop display and set the external display as primary. However, this setting only takes effect after login. Thus, I am unable to see the login screen greeter on my external display because I close the laptop lid, so I am logging in blindly to a gray login screen background.

he issue I am facing is that when I start the laptop with an external display connected, the greeter only appears on the laptop display. The gray login screen background image spans both laptop and external displays and my mouse pointer appears on both displays, so I know both displays are detected and configured as dual displays. But, I am guessing, the laptop display is set as primary while the external as secondary.

I would like to know if there is a way to dynamically switch the greeter between the two displays, regardless of which one is set as primary and secondary. Or, is there a way to configure the system such that if there is an external display connected via HDMI, then it is set as primary, and if no external display is connected, then the laptop display is set as primary?

I have searched all over the net and this forum to no avail. I read a post which required copying the user's ~/.config/monitors.xml file over to /var/lib/gdm/.config/ but this caused my laptop monitor to be turned off at login even when there was no external display connected.

Hardware: Acer Aspire 8730G, Core 2 Duo T9900, 8GB RAM, Nvidia Geforce 9600M GT.
Software: Debian 8.4 Jessie, Gnome 3.14.1, Gallium 0.4 on NV96 (I am assuming this is the Nouveau driver)

Contents of the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file which I generated with the command "Xorg -configure" as root in console mode:

Code: Select allSection "ServerLayout"
   Identifier     " Configured"
   Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
   InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
   InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"

[Code] ...

I suppose I will continue to login without seeing the greeter on my external display.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: 11.2 - Sometimes Picks Wrong Resolution On Startup

Feb 25, 2010

I'm running OpenSuSE 11.2 with an Nvidia GeForce 8200 on board graphics card and am running the drivers installed from the file which I obtained from the Nvidia web site. I also have this vga directive on the kernel line in /boot/grub/menu.lst vga=0x346 Yet, sometimes when the system starts up it will go into 640x480 mode instead of 1680x1050. If I shutdown and restart a few times it will eventually come up in the proper resolution.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Apps Start On Wrong Monitor Using Xinerama

Jan 23, 2010

I use 2 monitors under Ubuntu 9.10, but I have them set up in a unique way. The primary (CRT) faces me on my desk, but the other (widescreen LCD) is turned away from me, because I use it only to watch movies from my couch. My video card is an Nvidia GeForce 9800 GTX+, using the proprietary Nvidia driver package, with Xinerama turned on, so the desktop extends across both displays. Given that setup, is there any way to control which display applications open upon? Several apps have started opening on one display or the other, seemingly at random. Further, some apps start on the primary display, but open their subwindows on the secondary display. It's very annoying, because I can't see the second screen, so I can't drag the windows back to the primary desktop.

I would also like to have VLC Media Player (or any other app) always open on the secondary screen, on purpose. I almost never watch movies sitting at my desk, but rather from the couch. I placed a VLC launcher icon on the secondary screen, but when started it opens on the primary display. (If you're wondering how I can click on anything from my couch, I have a wireless mouse there in addition to the wired mouse at my desk. It's my "remote" since I don't have a TV. Xorg will quite happily support 2 or more mice simultaneously, I discovered.)

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Blinking LXDE And Gnome - Fresh Install - Graphics Resolution Is Wrong?

Apr 7, 2011

I've borrowed a copy of 11.4 DVD install disc from someone at work, everything went fine install wise. Except Grub taking control, which I didn't ask it to, but easy fix with yast, problem is firstly my graphics resolution is wrong, but I'm trying to work that one out myself as it always seems to be happening with distros I use on my machine. The weird thing is my desktop blinks! Every 10secs or so the whole screen goes blank and then reappears? I thought it might be the wrong refresh rate, but that's at 60Hz which is correct, would it be the resolution problem?

My hardware:-
P4 2.8
1Gb ram
Geforce FX 5500
Dell 1703FP monitor

I was trying to running diagnostic's from Opensuse, but the blinking was getting on my nerves and I'm not familiar with a non Debian based OS......yet! I've got compiz and all running on the hardware in my Ubuntu install after editing the xorg.conf, could I simply copy that to my Opensuse install?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Unable To Set Monitor Resolution?

Jul 16, 2010

I just switched monitors to a Viewsonic VX2025 and I am unable to get beyond 1280 x 1024 using the nvidia x server settings. My graphics card is a GeForce 5200. These are connected with a DVI plug. I would like to be able to set my resolution to 1920 x 1080. (Also, the card and monitor worked at 1920 x 1080 in a previous windows machine.)

I have done a fair bit of searching and it appears that my issue is either the x configuration file or EDID. After 2 days of working with this it's gotten confusing to say the least. So, I'm looking to see if others have had a similar problem and how to solve it. I have not altered an x config file before, so not exactly sure of where to begin.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Resolution Not Fitting Monitor Properly?

May 27, 2010

Since a fresh install of lynx, I've been having problems trying to get my resolution of 1366x768 to fit properly onto my monitor, regardless of what I try, the screen does not fit completely inside the monitor, and I have to pan around to view the entire desktop.

I haven't had problems with this in previous versions of ubuntu. I've tried all the nvidia driver versions in the repository, as well as the latest from nvidia itself and they all do the same thing.

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 Multimedia :: How To Get Full Resolution On Second (S-Video) Monitor?

Nov 30, 2010

I have two video outs on my AGP video card. One is VGA and the other is S-video. I tried connecting the second monitor (Viewsonic) by itself to the VGA port and it works fine and runs at 1280x768 very clearly. I then attached the LG monitor instead to the VGA and attached the Viewsonic to the S-video port. Now it is running at 1024x768 and I have no option to increase the resolution.Is this a limitation based on S-video being worse than component, which is worse than VGA and it simply cannot handle the data density for larger resolutions? Or would it be my video adapter? I swear I had monitor control working fine through the panel, but now when I click on the monitor button it says, "It appears that your graphics driver does not support the necessary extensions to use this tool. Do you want to use your graphics driver vendor's tool instead?" and that opens an Nvidia X control panel.

Also, using S-video means the computer doesn't recognize the Viewsonic LCD TV properly, it just recognizes it as a TV. Is this because S-video doesn't play nicely with EDID reporting?It would be nice to get a sharp picture on that TV, the way I had when it was connected like a monitor via VGA. I am not sure what's going on anymore, so any help on clearing up driver issues or getting configuration apps installed or anything like that would be helpful.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Force Monitor Resolution At Startup?

May 4, 2011

I started using Ubuntu 11.04 today.
Everything works fine with my monitor directly connected to the computer. I get a default screen resoluton of 1600 x 1280, which is just fine.

However, when I connect the screen through a video splitter to be able to use a beamer, the screen resolution defaults to 1024x768. Moreover, Ubuntu then detects an unknown monitor.

I recall that I have solved this problem before with an older version of Ubuntu.
Now it seems that there is no xorg.conf anymore so I don't know what to do.

How can I force Ubuntu 11.04 to start with a screen resololution of 1600 x 1280.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Trying To Increase The Resolution On External Monitor

May 24, 2011

I have an EeePC 1005HA with Intel 945G chipset and graphics. I've got a 21" no-name touchscreen attached to the laptop with the intention of hiding the laptop away behind it and simply using the tactile widescreen with virtual keyboard (onboard). By the way, the Touch screen is working great OOTB in Ub 11.04, although will have to tweak some more to get multi-touch working.On it's own the netbook runs 1024x600 (16:9) automatically. As soon as I plug in the larger monitor and mirror the images it auto-defaults both to 800x600 60hz and I have no options to select a higher res. I want to be able to run the large screen in something like 1024x600 or better, as long as its 16:9. At the moment everything is stretched out on the larger screen and on the netbook I have a 800x600 with black margins left & right.

Can't seem to work it out. The Monitor Config doesn't give me any higher options than 800x600 when mirrored. Below is the output of xrandr, if it's any help. Also my xorg.conf file is practically empty.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: External Monitor Having Resolution Higher Than Native

Jan 2, 2010

I've got a little problem with my 9" netbook. It came preinstalled with Ubuntu (factory install), but I reinstalled it to get a fresh karmic as it was a second hand.The problem is, whenever I plug in an external monitor, rightclick on the display icon and click "Configure Display Settings..." both monitors go black and nothing responds. Weird thing though, is that sometimes the mouse appears on the second monitor. I need a solution for this, either creating a xorg file (I have no clue on how to do that) or some other solution that works.

My netbook resolution is 1024*600, the external monitor resolution is 1024*768. It should be noted that I had a similar problem on another Ubuntu laptop (NVIDIA drivers), but it had to do with the resolution height. My laptop had 1440*900 and my external monitor needed to have the height lower then 900.
For further information, this is what the system profiler says about my graphics card:Display controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS/GME, 943/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller.I hope you guys can help me, as plugging in a netbook to an external monitor (or TV) is not uncommon to me I like doing that, even if there's no point in it.I hope I gave enough information on this, I'm willing to give more if needed of course

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Monitor Won't Detect Proper Resolution / Solve This?

Dec 27, 2010

This has been happening with the majority of screens I try to plug into, but the proprietary nvidia driver never detects the correct resolutions -__- the open-source driver works perfectly with a little xrandr magic, but I'd like to have some 3D acceleration going on. I'm using the desktop version of Nvidia ION and ubuntu 10.10, with the current nvidia driver (from the repositories). The native resolution is 1440x900 @60 Hz. Any thoughts on this? Again, the nouveau driver is great but I'd like to have VDPAU and the like working. code...

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Monitor/screen Adjustment And Resolution Tweaks?

Apr 22, 2011

I have a dell studio hybrid PC which I am hooking up to my TCL brand 40" LCD TV to use as a media center pc. The problem I am having is that I can't get the TV's native 1920x1080 resolution to display properly. The rendered desktop doesn't quite fit in the screen (I think its the top and bottom edges that are cut off) so for example the menu bar at the top is completely off the screen.

1680x1050 works fine in the sense that it fits the full desktop to the screen size, but its not the native res. In the resolution changer utility, it recognizes that my TV is a TCL brand but mentions 36 in the model name (the TV I have has 40 in the model name to denote 40") so I think Ubuntu is recognizing the wrong size TV. How can I finagle the screen settings to make the 1920x1080 fit properly on my monitor? Or get Ubuntu to correctly recognize my TV? My TV is a no-name brand so its hard to find info on it or others setting up linux with it.
