I was running a CRT at 1280X1024. I then attached a Samsung Widescreen and could not adjust the video. It simply stretched the 1280 to fit the wider screen.
When I tried to adjust the video with KDE nothing visible happened. So I went to a terminal and entered system-config-display (after su of course)
Here I got something. It said "No video card detected."
The video card is the nVidea 8200 built into the ASUS M3N78-EMH HDMI motherboard.
I put the CRT monitor back on it, and suddenly I could set my video anywhere I wanted.
I attached a Vieosonic widescreen and got the same thing. I am back to the CRT again.
Has anyone had any similar experience ? And does anyone have a suggestion ?
