I don't know what to do. I have a NVIDIA geforce 4 420 Go if that's any help. Please help me, the text is very fuzzy now. Thanks.
Ok, a couple of things, based on your first post, the one I have quoted you say that FC does not allow you to select your correct monitor size, this may have been a limitation in the installer, try going to:
Applications > System Settings > Display
Hardware > (under monitor type, choose) Configure..
First check you laptops monitor is not in the list (it probably isnt
) if it is not there, go to the very top, and look for Generic LCD screen, under this section you should see a screen size of 1280x800 (it may be worth a try)
Referring to the last post, I just wanted to see what the installer thought of your monitor and video card, so if you can add those sections as well, it may help me or someone else out with the problem.
Also in the Display settings tab, that I just asked you to change your monitor in, what does it say your video card is?
If FC has not detected the card correctly, then get the NV driver for your card, if you have got the correct device installed, then check to see if there is an update for the drivers for this device.
