Ubuntu :: Removed Video Card To Switch To Onboard Video / Cannot Start Kdm

Jun 19, 2011

Got a bit of a problem where xorg can't start kdm. I pulled out a dying AGP card to try and switch to onboard video, and I think the previous configuration is gumming up the works.I've been running this system for quite a while, as you'll be able to tell from the version numbers.Would like to avoid having to transport my Amarok databases to a new server. I make heavy use of the song ratings and whenever I try to transport the database from the old system to a fresh build I have to spend hours relearning sql commands.Any ideas how to either fix the resolutions on the ATI or (preferably) get KDE to start on the onboard graphics?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Onboard HDMI And A Video Card At Same Time?

Jul 26, 2010

I'm looking at upgrading my motherboard and graphics card. Ideally, I'd like to have 2 monitors running at once (DVI), and an output to an LCD projector (HDMI). If I can't have all 3 working at once, I'd like the 2 monitors on all the time (off the graphics card), and then switch from the monitors to the HDMI output so that only the projector is getting video.

So, If I get a motherboard with onboard HDMI, would it be possible to run the HDMI out at the same time as the graphics card output?

Ubuntu :: Installing NVIDIA Card - Disabled The Onboard Video

Jun 17, 2010

I installed Edubuntu 9.10 on a Dell Optiplex GX260. This system has onboard INtell 846G series video. I want to install an NVIDIA video card. I popped it in the case, diabled the onboard video. I get the POST, the GRUB, no problem. But once I get past the GRUB, all I get is a blank screen. The HDD does not sound like Ubuntu is loading.

Ubuntu :: Getting X To Work After Switching From Onboard Intel Video To A 5000 Series ATI Card?

Apr 25, 2010

I'm having trouble getting X to work after switching from onboard intel video to a 5000 series ATI card. Apparently I need to switch to a MESA or fglrx driver. I did a sudo apt-get install fglrx-driver and it installed but still no X. I'm currently using Karmic. I've tried to boot with a live CD which works fine and changed the xorg file manual but that was a mess.

When I start I get a checking battery state ... done and it stays there forever sometimes and sometimes I can login but without x. Typing startx gives me a long list that says check the xorg website. I've been looking around for a way to fix this and haven't been able to get it working.

Debian Hardware :: Can't Get GUI After Removed Video Card

Jan 4, 2016

I knew this would eventually happen, though I had to remove my NVIDIA video card after the fan went out (again) & the card burned out.Now I can't get the machine to boot to GUI.I tried some things, though nothing was specific to such a simple & routine task (I imagine video cards go out occasionally, & with Linux, that would require totally different video settings).

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Switch From Video Device Built Into Mother Board To Card?

Mar 29, 2010

I am trying to switch from the video device built into the mother board, to a card i just put into my machine. I'm using gnome and don't know where to start. I shouldn't need new drivers (based on a possible misunderstanding) because I am going from a nvidia 6100 to a 8600. I have looked in various places like the control center but haven't had any luck. I just started using linux and have very little experience in the terminal. Issues with the current card are stopping me in my learning process.

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.

Ubuntu Installation :: Video Card Not Getting Past Video BIOS On Boot?

I recently bought a video card for my pc. I had it running pretty nicely on Ubuntu10.10, I started windows and later restarted and after that it wouldn't get past the Graphic cards bios. this is rather odd isn't it? I suspect it maybe dead or that my motherboard bios is stuffed but i reset that too and it still wont go..

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Video Card Crashing When Using Video Editor?

Jun 12, 2010

My system: Pentium 4 3.6 GHz, 3 Gb DDR ram, GeForce 210 video card, Ubuntu 10.04.

I have previously used Cinelerra-cv (on Karmic) and recently Openshot (on Lucid) with not much trouble. I have been sampling other video editors (Kdenlive, avidemux, kino etc). Now I have my video card crashing whichever I use, mainly when trying to load clips. I have disabled Compiz, uninstalled all video editors and then reinstalled one at a time. I still get early video crashes whichever I try.

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:

Ubuntu :: Xorg Configuration For Intel Onboard Video?

My PCI-E Nvidia card died, and I want to use the onboard video from my H55 chipset, which Windows identifies as "Intel 5 Series/3400 Series". This is on 10.04 LTS.I did 'apt-get purge nvidia*' followed by adding "intel" as the driver in xorg.conf, but on boot I get the message:


intel0: no valid modes found
Screen(s) found but none has a usable configuration

Current xorg.conf:

Fedora Hardware :: Dual Video Cards - ATI PCI & Via Onboard ?

Oct 17, 2010

I am a bit overwhelmed with all the information out here, and can't get this to work properly after trying to for two days. I have a PCI ATI card(Sapphire Radeon 9250):

00:08.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV280 [Radeon 9200 PRO] (rev 01)
00:08.1 Display controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV280 [Radeon 9200 PRO] (Secondary) (rev 01)

of which I am only wanting to use the Primary, and my onboard video:

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. KM400/KN400/P4M800 [S3 UniChrome] (rev 01)

right now my xorg.conf is empty and I only get a display off my ATI card. How can I get my onboard to display as well like it does in windows?

I've tried many ways that I found and nothing seems to work.

Ubuntu Installation :: Configure Onboard Video - Gigabyte 890GPA-UD3H ?

Jan 28, 2011

I just replaced my motherboard with a Gigabyte 890GPA-UD3H. I am happy to report that the OS (Ubuntu 10.04) was smart enough to boot up using the pre-existing software RAID 5 (four disks) and work fine with the new motherboard, CPU, and memory. However, since the new motherboard has a nice onboard display, I removed the PCIe graphics card (which was needed on the old board), and am now trying to configure the OS to use the "OnChipVGA."

This is what lshw produces

And here is what I get with startx:X.Org X Server 1.7.6

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Video Card Died New Card Boots To Black?

Jul 15, 2010

My video card developed problems, so I followed the suggestion in this thread:

Quote: Boot into recovery mode, then choose root, for a command prompt and enter
Code: dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

but my ubuntu 10.04 32-bit system still won't boot. Shortly after the ubuntu logo comes up, before the login, my screen goes black and there is no more video signal. What else can I do to reset the video configuration? The card only has this info on it: I could put the card back in the system, reboot, and then pre-configure the system to drop to the intel 865G on-board video, but the msi card has intermittent problems and will spontaneously re-boot several times during the first ten minutes of turning on the system.

Ubuntu :: CompizConfig Full Screen Video Desktop Switch

Oct 10, 2010

I saw a compizconfig video on ....., I forgot what it was, but I saw that they were running a video full screen and switched desktops or work areas and when they went back the video was still full screen.

Right now if I do a video full screen and switch to another desktop and come back to the video one, it is back to the window size before full screened.

How can I accomplish for my video to remain full screen even if i switch desktops?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Best Way To Switch Video Cards And Drivers

Jul 17, 2010

I would like to know the best way to swap out video cards from ati to nvidia. For example. In windows, I would uninstall the driver, switch the cards, boot into a low VGA windows session and install the new drivers, reboot done.

In sues, I'm wondering if I uninstall the drivers, after rebooting I might loose my Gnome desktop. And I guess at that point I'd be looking at a blinking cursor?

Ubuntu :: Programs Or Music Or Video Players And Desktop Are Closed Are Removed All The Icons When Entering A Music CD

Jul 6, 2010

1-When entering a music CD, video or files, any programs or music or video players and desktop are closed are removed all the icons and I can not open any program only on firefox, I can not see the files or anything . (NOTE CD-rom is in mint condition)

2-I graphics effects ruin the entire desktop and when it is in fact no graphic still looks bad everything looks pixelated or striped like when flex is damaged or something is damaged and is in perfect condition.

Now I'm going with the version 10.04 of ubuntu:

1-I have the same problem with the CD I had in 9.10, except that in the 10/04 I can open some programs with the Emphaty and monitor systems.

2-When you close the laptop when I open the screen looks as if the flex embers damaged or broken screen (when it is of course) and I have no other to reset it.

3-When you drive about 30 minutes using computed with any open programs (Firefox, Emphaty, emesene, movie player, Gnome player) to close it or minimize it gets super slow and sometimes if I Friza and then to turn it off and repeat history.

4-When I'm watching a movie or a video with movie player is super slow (just what I'm playing does not the OS) as if Lageado and stuff. But with Gnome looks pretty good player just the video looks very small and I can not put it full screen. Certainly in a Dell Latitude C610 Pentium III-Processor: 1000/700mhz-Memory: 512MB Graphics-Card: 16mb.

Fedora :: 13 X86_64 Nouveau KVM Switch - Video Res Drops Back To 1024x768 Instead Of 1200x1024

Jul 8, 2010

I have a server with Fedora 13 x86_64 installed that uses gnome as the desktop. Recently I purchased a generic KVM switch for my office. When I connect this to the server the video res drops back to 1024x768 instead of 1200x1024. I did some research and apparently Fedora 13 no longer uses the Xorg.conf file for display setup, it detects the hardware in the fly when you boot and uses the appropriate drivers (unless one exists in the /etc/X11 folder).

The specs for the KVM say that it can do way more than 1200x1024 so I can't see a problem with that. Also I tested it with a windows installation and I was able to obtain 1200x1024 resolution. The video card is a NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS and the current driver being loaded is the nouveau according to lspci. When connected to the KVM the display widget in gnome wont detect the monitor or graphics card anymore. I used system-config-display to change the display settings and it created this Xorg.conf file -

Multimedia :: Looking For Best Video Card For Ubuntu?

Aug 7, 2010

I'm looking to replace my video card...

From what I can tell (From Looking at forums)
Nvidia is the way to go with Ubuntu

Just want to double check that, since the newest post I found was a couple years old.

The video card I have now should be more than good enough for me.
All I do is watch videos and brows online.

But videos and desktop effects are both very choppy.

I realize that if I take the time, I can probably get my card to work well, but I just don't have the time.

Looking for a new card between $100-$150 that will work perfect right out of the box.

Ubuntu :: Installing The Second Video Card?

Aug 17, 2010

This would be the one thing that has always held me back from using Ubuntu as my main OS on my desktop. Now with Lucid Lynx in the picture I would really like to try again and get some answers this time around.

I have 2 GPUs in my system, a HD4870 and a HD4350. The HD4870 has a Benq 24" and a Dell 17" which are working fine in a multi-display desktop setting (No Xinerama) configured via CCC.

On the HD4350 I have a single Samsung 17" which in CCC is listed as '[Unknown Display] Unknown adapter' and cannot be used. How can I get that working properly so I can configure it as an additional screen in this setup?

Also on a side note, I have a small problem with CCC. When I installed catalyst and drivers I configured my screen resolution and multi-display desktop, but every time I reboot my resolution for both screens is set to 1280x1024 and they are cloned. Why don't my settings save?

Multimedia :: Best Video Card For Ubuntu

Sep 2, 2010

After a post on the wine forums came to the discovery that my ATI radeon 4850 graphics card is causing much trouble in my ubuntu machine because of the lack of support. And because of that I cannot play my favorite games through wine. So now I'm saving some money to buy a new graphic card. A nvidia this time.
Now I don't know all that much about graphic cards, but I am looking for a card that works well on ubuntu that equals the performance of my old 4850 and fits my P5Q pro motherboard.
I myself don't know much about good graphic cards so if I go off to buy something without good advice I probably end up with something that does not work or fit or something like that.

Ubuntu :: 100% Compatible Video Card?

I am not having a big problem at all but my built in video system is clearly behaving like it does not have the right driver.

Are there any video cards out there that are directly well-supported by linux? i.e. genuine linux drivers that allow the card to function at full capacity or close?
