View Full Version : Monitor Issues on Start UP
25th July 2004, 10:27 AM
I have installed Fedora on a box with a Radeon 9700 Pro and a Compaq Presario 1725 monitor. The GUI installation works fine, but when I do the inital startup, directly after the LocalHost login screen, my screen starts to roll to the right at a very fast rate. Any ideas as how to stop this?

I think you have refresh rate or a display mode that your monitor can't show correctly. Try to go in virtual console by pressing ctrl + alt + f1. Log in as root. Set your videocard and monitor by "system-config-display".
Is this Fedora Core 2 system? Is this TFT-monitor? Is monitor connected to digital or analog connector?
I'm beginner with Fedora but hope I can help.

every time I install fc2 I get this problem and on different hardware even though it is supported. perhaps a bug...
you should also check the specs for your monitor. you will need to know the refresh, vsyn, hsynv rates. if you don't know, you can probably get the info from the manufacturer's website. and edit the /etc/X11/xorg.conf section Section "Monitor"
VendorName "Monitor Vendor"
ModelName "Dell E770s"
DisplaySize 320 240
HorizSync 30.0 - 70.0
VertRefresh 50.0 - 160.0
of course using your specs.
