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.

General :: Activate Wireless Network Card Driver And Video Driver?

Jul 20, 2010

I just installed Linux Mint 9 as a dual boot install with Win XP. Trying to activate wireless network card driver and video driver. Pops up: "You are not authorized to perform this action".How do I get authorized?

Now every time I boot Win XP, the Internet Explorer menu bar is all blacked out and goofy. If I log out and back in it corrects itself. If I reboot it's blacked out again. Re-installed IE8. Still blacks out.Also Firefox in Win XP crashes expectantly. It has NEVER crashed on me previously.

Ubuntu :: 9.10 Live CD Wipes TV Card Driver In XP

Feb 12, 2010

I have a PC with the following specs:

Gigabyte GA-K8NF-9 motherboard
AMD Athlon 64 processor 3400+
Nvidia GeForce 6600 video card
Realtek AC'97 Audio
1 GB DDR Memory
Creatix SAA7134 TV Card
OS Windows XP SP3

When I run the 64bit 9.10 Live CD everything works well in Ubuntu. However when I remove the Live CD and return to Windows I find a splat for a multimedia device. I have to reinstall the drivers for the Creatix SAA7134 TV card. I have to do this everytime I run the Live CD. This problem is putting me off dual booting between Windows and Ubuntu. I thought that the idea of the Live CD is that it has no effect on the installed OS. It appears thet Ubuntu does something to the card which Windows then has to recover from.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: XBMC Live Install Not Functioning - Video Card ?

Apr 24, 2010

I tried to run the XBMC live disc but could not fully boot. Each time I could only get to a command prompt after the XBMC splash screen with spinning circle. So I thought, "Maybe because my computer is sort of old (Pentium 4, 2.26 Ghz, 512 RAM) it doesn't like the XBMC Live disc. It will probably work if I install to the HDD." I installed it only to get the same result, XBMC splash screen then loading of command prompt. Does anyone know how to fix this? Is the computer compatible?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Video Card - Install The Driver?

Apr 13, 2010

I am attempting to make a video machine only... which mean I have a Compaq 6435cl and I have installed the latest verion of ubuntu on it. All I want this machine to do is play video from off the net on my LCD HD TV. The video on board was all choppy when going into full screen mode so I put in a 3dfx Voodoo card and the same thing happens. I cannot figure out how to install the drivers for this card in ubuntu so I was wondering if I should by a new video card. Do you have a recomended video card for ubuntu that would push HD video?

Ubuntu :: Video Card Driver And Black Dos Like Screen?

Jan 29, 2011

I am making a switch over to Ubuntu from windows on one of my kids machines.It has a Nvidia video card, a g-force fx 440 i believe, or something like that.Anyway I just loaded up Ubuntu 10.10 and and it seems it does not recognize my video card. If i go tosystem>administration>Additional drivers, the dialog comes back with "No proprietary drivers are used on this system. Ok so now I go to Ubuntu Software center and search nvidia..... I get the option to installl Nvidia binary x.org driver (version 185), I do so

Now in the Additional drivers dialogue it tells me "this driver is active and currently in use". Awsome, Now when I click on Nvidia X Server settings under system>Administration I get the following dialogue."You do not appear to be using the NVIDIA X driver. Please edit your X configuration file (just run `nvidia-xconfig` as root), and restart the X server."If i do what that last message said, run sudo nvidia-xconfig in the terminal, It gives an error saying the xconfig file is not there, and it will create one. The next time I reboot Ubunut just shows a black dos like screen asking for username and password. If i put it in, it does nothing, I end up having to re-install ubuntu.

Ubuntu Networking :: How To Make/compile The Driver For A Wireless Card

Feb 16, 2011

I've been trying to make/compile the driver for a wireless card. The card is usb, it's titled Micronext MN-WD550M and seems to use the rtl8712 driver.Firstly, though I did this once two years ago I seem to have completely forgotten how to install a driver in ubuntu.

Secondly, I'm not sure I have the right driver anyway since in the notes in the readme it says it is for i386 (I run amd 64). The driver is here [URL] Thirdly, after clicking through various readmes and documentation without feeling any more intelligent, I then tried using ndiswrapper to install a windows driver and ubuntu would crash if the usb wireless card was plugged in. Blarg.I feel like this should be so simple I'm going to make a clean installation of ubuntu 10.10 shortly (for various unrelated reasons) so anything I messed up with ndiswrapper should be back to normal.

Ubuntu :: Video Card Driver Destroying Boot Progress Sequence?

Jul 27, 2010

I have a full install on a dedicated partition. And the problem persists. I have tacked it down to the driver for my video card [nVidia 9600m GS]. When I disable the driver, it somewhat returns to normal [it works fine on shut down, but boot up is still buggy]. However, this makes Docky complain about compositing [it will still work, but there's a black void around it] not being enabled. I also assume that lacking the driver will cause problems if I try to do anything 3D.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Uninstalling Video Card Driver / Black Screen

Jan 4, 2011

I recently swapped a hard drive from another computer I was using.The previous computer had nVidia video card (i think it was 9500? something like that), and the new computer has an ATI Radeon 4200 HD video card. Now, when I boot it up on my new comp using the same hard drive, I get a black screen and my monitor just switches from digital, analog, hdmi. I'm guessing that the video card drivers are still installed, but I cannot switch back the hard drive since my other comp is far away from where I live. If I boot up with ubuntu CD however, it loads fine.

I have many important files on the previous install though, and I'm not sure how to get to it. I wouldnt mind reinstalling ubuntu as long as I can get those files back.

Hardware :: Will New Video Card Make Noticeable Difference

Feb 11, 2010

I'm running Fedora Core 12 and XFCE on a Pentium 4 with 2 Gb of RAM. It is useable, but not fast. The video is some crumy on-board stuff in an old IBM Netvista pc. I wonder if adding a nicer nVidia based accelerator will make a noticeable different in performance.

Debian Hardware :: Xorg Driver For AMD Need ATI 9834 Video Card?

Jul 24, 2014

I just purchased an Acer Aspire V5-123 notebook with AMD processor and graphic and installed Debian 7.6 (stable) on it. first of all, I had to install a newer (3.14.0.bpo.1-amd64) kernel image to get the ethernet card working. Then, I got problem with Xorg not starting.

Here is the error lines from /var/log/Xorg.0.log:

Code: Select all(EE) VESA(0): V_BIOS address 0x0 out of range
...
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.

and this is the output by issuing lspci:

Code: Select alllspci -nn | grep VGA:
00:01.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI Device [1002:9834]

I installed the libgl1-mesa-dri, xserver-xorg-video-ati, and firmware-linux-nonfree packages, as suggested by AtiHowTo from Debian Wiki, but the problem still persists and the last one (firmware-linux-nonfree) actually caused the notebook to freeze on boot. so, I removed it.

Uh oh. Your card is not supported by any driver version up to 304.125.
A newer driver may add support for your card.
Newer driver releases may be available in backports.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Nouveau Video Driver For GForce 7300 Card In 11.4 With KDE

Jun 13, 2011

I would like to use Nouveau rather than NVidia proprietary drivers. I am very experienced with Linux but a bit clueless with monitors. I got rather close to a working setup, but just can't get the resolution and maybe H/V sync frequency of my monitor correct.

My system:

OpenSUSE 11.4 32-bit
Gforce 7300
KDE desktop
Acer 21" LCD monitor, non-wide screen, it can do 1600x1200

X configuration: No x.org.conf file, and only one modified file in xorg.conf.d, namely to specify the driver "nouveau" (by the way, is that even needed??) According to lsmod, nouveau loads perfectly. However, KDE starts-up in an odd, non-useful screen resolution. 3d works, slowly, which is OK. I specifically want 1024x768 resolution, but am not able to specify a different resolution in the Display configuration section of the KDE control center (I understand that is perhaps normal).

I tried inserting text into the xorg.conf.d/50-monitor, not really knowing what to add or where and eventually got 1024x768 but the display was unstable, blinking off and on every so-often, and the screen edges were off.I am pretty sure I simply need to put information about my monitor and desired resolution into some file(s) in xorg.conf.d/ or maybe build a dreaded xorg.conf file. I know of the "cvt" utility, and I have a hunch this is part of the solution.
