Hardware :: NVIDIA Geforce 7050 Compatible ?

Apr 30, 2010

I purchased a new computer and I am trying to boot up gparted to partition the HD for installing my Linux Distros, but it gives the famous error Quote:

input signal out of range. So I tried booting up some other live cd's, some give the same error as above and some tell me that the resolution or refresh rate in wrong. Of course using a live cd I have no control over that. I also tried three different monitors that have run Linux just fine on other computers.

My only thought that I could come up with is the NVIDIA Geforce 7050 graphics is not compatible with Linux. Can anyone confirm this ? Or is there something else I can try ?

Debian :: Nvidia GeForce 7050 Not Working In Lenny?

Mar 7, 2010

I just did a fresh install of Debian lenny and I'm having an issue with the display driver. The system is defaulting to 1600x1200 and it's not allowing me to change it to a lower resolution. The PC has a Nvidia geForce 7050 display card and the monitor I bought with the machine goes up to 1366x768 resolution. I ran the dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg but nothing happens, it's only giving me options to change the keyboard. There is nothing on the xorg.conf for the monitor settings:

Seletion "Screen"
Identifier "Default Screen"
Monitor "Configured Monitor"

Apparently, the install did not picked up the display card automatically. I also looked up the drivers for the adapter and downloaded the nvidia-glx_173.14.09-5_i386.deb file but, don't know how to install it.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Setup Dual Screen Display On Computer With Nvidia Optimus?

Aug 17, 2011

having trouble setting up a dual monitor from my Dell xps laptop using an HDMI port. It dual boots onto Ubuntu 10.04. The computer has a Nvidia GeForce GT 555M with Optimus graphics card I need to make sure I have not installed the restricted drivers. So I think what is happening right now is that the graphics are shown off the integrated graphics card. This is my output from <lspci | grep VGA>


00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Device 0126 (rev 09)
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation Device 0dcd (rev a1)

The forum recommends to use this program called Bumblebee but I have had some issues with that in the past. Is there somehow I can setup my dual display while staying on Ubuntu 10.04 and not installing Bumblebee? I have researched into setting up dual display walkthroughs before but they all concentrate on nvidia or ATI configurations.

General :: Unable To Use Nvidia Driver On Debian Amd64

Mar 9, 2011

I installed the Nvidia driver for the on board GeForce 7025 / nForce 630a the "Debian way", according to this link Debian Nvidia Howto. The problem is that the only available screen resolutions are 640x480 & 320x240 and I need something more like 1024x768. The driver is installed correctly, or at least is properly recognized, as in Nvidia Xserver settings, GPU0 appears as GeForce 7025 / nForce 630a.

Here's the xorg.conf file.


Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Layout0"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"


..only causes gdm not to start.On my Ubuntu partition, I have working the proprietary Nvidia driver (file: NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-260.19.36.run), and have had no problems from it at all. I was going to install this same driver onto Debian when I read several pages advising to go the "Debian way".

General :: Run On Built Computer With AMD Processor And On Board GPU?

Mar 13, 2011

I am trying to build a low cost computer, and over the last few days, I was interested in Linux as my OS to use. All I really need for the computer was the internet, word processors, and 3 games: "Wizard101", "Fusion Fall", and "Free Realms". Would Linux run on a built computer with an AMD processor and an on-board GPU? And would Linux run all of my needs/wants for this computer?

Fedora :: MPlayer And XBMC Built With NVIDIA VDPAU?

Aug 28, 2009

If you want to use XBMC 9.11 (Camelot) and MPlayer, I suggest to use RPM Fusion. VDPAU support is now mainline...My repository provides pre-beta XBMC Dharma packages (xbmc-dharma) and recent mplayer packages with bluray support (through libbluray and libaacs). These packages depend on RPM Fusion.

xbmc-dharma is also compiled with vdpau and vaapi support. vaapi is supposed to be compatible with Nvidia (through vdpau, install vdpau-video), ATI (through xvba, install xvba-video) and Intel (directly). For me (NVidia), it doesn't work, xbmc instantly crash. Anyway, you can try. Maybe it's useful for someone. You can maybe find informations here: [URL] For NVidia and ATI, it can only work with the closed source driver. For Intel. libva, vdpau-video source packages were copied from [URL](I forgot) and recompiled by me.

One last thing, RTMP [URL] support was removed from XBMC after 9.11. If you want to watch videos over this protocol (usually flash), you have to install librtmp (provided in my repo). Repository URL:[URL] If you want to install it in yum, copy [URL]

Debian Configuration :: Nvidia-kernel-source Was Not Built Successfully

Apr 26, 2011

Squeeze-beta was my first foray into Debian, and I love it. I changed my setup to a rolling setup with testing (Wheezy), and have done that for several months. Lately, I got a new kernel, but it reboots to a terminal rather than GUI (I'm a simple laptop user). I think it's because of the NVIDIA drivers, and here is what I've tried (meanwhile, I'm using the previous kernel):

# apt-get install module-assistant nvidia-kernel-common
# m-a auto-install nvidia-kernel${VERSION}-source
A blue screen appears that says:

module-assistant error message Bad luck, the kernel headers for the target kernel version could not be found and you did not specify other valid kernel headers to use.

You can try:

module-assistant prepare
apt-get install linux-headers-2.6.38-2-amd64

I have done both, rebooted, and I still get the blue screen. I also see this message:

nvidia-kernel-source was not built successfully, see:


...and I have copy/pasted the file below (which omits lines 101-200 because this message is too long then):

/usr/bin/make -f debian/rules clean
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/modules/nvidia-kernel'
test -f debian/control || cp debian/control.template debian/control

Debian Configuration :: NVidia Driver Fails With Built Kernel?

Jul 30, 2011

I've posted here before (viewtopic.php?f=5&t=66322) about problems arising from my attempts to get an nVidia driver to work with my custom kernel. Now those problems are all fixed, and I'm back to where I was: the built kernel boots fine, but the nVidia driver fails.

The custom kernel is as near to the stock one as I can make it, I'm just trying to find a working build process at present, before trying to build a later-version kernel.

I used sgfxi with "-! 40" to build the nVidia driver for my custom kernel; it reported that everything was fine.

With stock kernel - 2.6.32-5-amd64 ...

Extracts from /var/log/Xorg.0.log:
X.Org X Server 1.7.7
Release Date: 2010-05-04
X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0

Ubuntu Networking :: Get New Belkin 7050 Wifi Stick Up And Running?

Mar 12, 2010

For two days I've tried to get my new Belkin 7050 wifi stick up and running. No matter what I did nothing changed, at all. After close to 8hrs of straight trouble shooting I have made zero progress. Zero.

If you have a bunch of free time and want a project then feel free to play with this device. However if you're short on time or have work to get done just take it back to the store and get a different device.

Here's the over view of my situation :

- Ubuntu 8.04 : Device is detected. DHCP = Doesn't connect to router / get IP. Router can see device. Router has no security / password enabled.After several hours of trouble shooting Ubuntu I booted into win2k (supported by device)

- Win2k : Device is detected, official software installed. DHCP = Doesn't connect to router / get IP.

It does the exact same thing in Win2k as it does in Ubuntu. - Ubuntu 9.10 : Did a fresh install if 9.10 just to trouble shoot this problem. Symptoms are exactly the same. DHCP doesn't get an ip. There are no errors in /var/log/messages

- Ubuntu 9.10 : Blacklisted the regular drivers and did the ndiswrapper method, smooth sailing. After all is said and done it does the exact same thing. DHCP doesn't get an ip.

In all the trouble shooting I did (iwconfig, ifconfig, etc) I never received any error messages telling me that something had went wrong (besides the part where dhcp didnt get an ip).

Ubuntu :: Desktop Does Not Display With Hi-res Nvidia

Apr 15, 2011

I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 on a Dell m65 mobile precision laptop w/ nNvidia card.

I booted up my system. Login screen appears. I login. I can hear the login sounds. I can hear my notifications telling me I have email. My mouse works. My keyboard works. But I don't see my desktop. All that's in front of me is the background that I had at login time. I don't see the panels nor the desktop icons. I don't see the interactive grouping/stretchy rectangle thingy when clicking and dragging on the desktop.

I've never experienced this before. I never had a problem w/ this before. I had always been running in hi-res mode.

I did update my system earlier this morning and it wasn't until this afternoon I had to reboot it.

These are the things I've tried, none of which worked.

1) Downgraded my nVidia driver version

2) Changed the xorg.conf to a generic version with basic resolution (I had been running 1900x1200)

3) Tried restarting nautilus. I did this from the command prompt. I just get "Failed to contact configuration server; the most common cause is a missing or misconfigured D-Bus session bus daemon.

4) Tried an older kernel

5) Turned off compiz

These are the things I've tried and they do work

1) Boot to recovery menu. Run in failsafeX mode. I can see my desktop but everything is huge.
2) Run Desktop Edition (Safe Mode). I can see my desktop but everything is huge. I also notice that my desktop icons had been moved around. I think I was doing this when I couldn't see them!!
3) When in Safe Mode, I can configure my nVidia settings to be hi-res. But I can't these settings to stick when booting to normal mode.

Ubuntu :: Getting NVIDIA Driver To Display Correctly

Mar 31, 2011

I have a problem with getting the picture to display properly on my HDTV. Using the regular driver (whichever that is) the picture displays flawlessly, but when I'm using the NVIDIA driver it displays really weird. URL...As you can see the top and the right of the picture is missing, and there is a large black bar to the left of it.Since it only does this with the NVIDIA driver I guess the driver is at fault here. The graphics card is a 8400GS and I'm running Xubuntu 10.10. The HDTV has a native resolution of 1366x768, and I've connected to it using HDMI.

I have tried messing around with overscan compensation in nvidia-settings, but it didn't help much.What can I do to fix this?

Ubuntu :: Maverick Display / Computer Sleep Despite Being Set To Never

Oct 20, 2010

I applied Power Management settings to put my computer to sleep in the hope that it would only sleep when it wasn't downloading something in Deluge. Unfortunately it would seem that it puts the computer to sleep despite Deluge being active. No biggie I thought, I'll just disable the sleep settings my setting them both back to NEVER. However, it ignores my new settings and still puts the display / computer to sleep, at the exact times I set originally!

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Over Sized Display Setting With NVidia

Jan 5, 2010

I am new to Ubuntu (Karmic with GNOME). I have a Samsung LED UEB7020, with an Asrock ION 330 BD player feeding to a Onkyo TXSR607, AV rec. The other day I downloaded NVidia v180.25, which was very useful, because it immediately solved an earlier teething problem of no sound. However immediately upon re-booting and ever since, the screen size is too big for the TV, meaning that I can not see the top, bottom, side and left of the display by about 2 inches either way. I have checked the NVidia resolution settings and they are correct for the TV, ie 1920 by 1080.

My etc/X11/ xorg.conf file reads as follows:
Section "Screen"
Identifier "Default Screen"
DefaultDepth 24

Section "Module"
Load "glx"

Section "Device"
Identifier "Default Device"
Driver "nvidia"
Option "NoLogo" "True"

Ubuntu :: No Display On Screen After Upgrading Nvidia Drivers?

Sep 26, 2010

Recently I upgrade to the latest Nvidia driver for Linux. I checked that it was compatible with my Ubuntu 10.04 x64 system and my geforce gt 220 graphics card. I decided to go with the newest beta ver 260.1904. Installation went well, better actually than other times I tried to install the newest driver from their site. After installation was finished I restarted and let my system load up. As soon as it got past the ubuntu logo, the screen just went blank as if there was no signal.

I determined that everything but the display was working. When I pressed ctrl-alt-F1 the numlock light turned off (this usually happens) and was still toggle-able. When I went through the other x-servers (ctrl-alt-(F2-F6)) the light went out but could be turned off and on by hitting numlock. When booting in from recovery mode, the screen displayed up to the point where it would show recovery options with no noticeable error showing before the screen turned off. This is what worries me the most.I don't think it is my Xorg.conf because I replaced with a backup and still have the same problem.Does anyone have any ideas about why this is happening or how I can at least see the terminal. As a side note, its definitely not the card because the card worked fine before, works in windows and live cds, and I tried with an older nvidia card and had the same problem.

Ubuntu Installation :: No Display / Video After Lucid Install - NVidia

May 10, 2010

Lucid installed without any errors that I can see of off the main i386 installation CD, but after booting I get no display. Even in recovery mode. The monitor doesn't go into sleep mode and I can tell that the OS is actually running the background because I can do a Ctrl-Alt-Del and do a proper shutdown. I'm running an nvidia GT 9500. Everything is working fine on Karmic.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Override Nvidia's Display Resolution Selection

Jul 27, 2010

Recently I encountered a problem with a triple-monitor setup where the EDID was rejected by the nvidia driver (version 195.36.0, claiming that the EDID checksum was invalid. The maximum resolution that the driver would allow was 640x480. Searching through the X logs (/var/log/Xorg.0.log), I found the following message:

(WW) Jul 26 21:37:57 NVIDIA(GPU-0): The EDID read for display device DFP-0 is invalid: the
(WW) Jul 26 21:37:57 NVIDIA(GPU-0): checksum for EDID version 1 extension is invalid.
