When I tried to install Fedora 8, it turns off my monitor when it goes to the graphical mode. I see a blank monitor with a blinking power light. I tried all the options to turn off power management, but to no avail. I gave up and installed it in text mode. When I start the X server, again it turns my monitor off. I used an xorg.conf file from another distro, only changing the "nvidia" driver to nv. Same problem.
BTW, I am using Fedora 8 x86_64, XFX GeForce 8600 GT card with 256 Mb DDR3. I have the DVI -> VGA adapter to run my Samsung SyncMaster 170N 17 in LCD monitor.
The system is running Intel e6750 Core 2 Duo on a Asus P5K-E Mobo w/ Intel P35 chipset.
I run Fedora 8 x86_64on my Core 2 work machine just fine with the same graphics card, but I am driving a DVI monitor with it. It has a slightly older Intel mobo.
I would be greatful for any advice on this one. It would be especially nice to use the graphical installer, if possible.
