View Full Version : Monitor Not Dectected

Does anyone know how I can make fedora core 5 test 3 detect my Dell Monitor. It seems to be telling me unknown monitor fatal error no screens found. Also my X server fails to start because it cannot detect my monitor. Anyone??

I forgot to tell you guys during my installation the display was also crappy. The display seemed to be blurred.
