View Full Version : Graphics & sound problems

23rd March 2006, 02:08 PM
Hokay, so I installed FC5 and was getting a good feeling having been able to use the graphical install unlike FC4. Short lived joy as when I went to boot up the system hanged. :( Seems as if the first-run malarky was causing that as when I disabled that I managed to get into X.
First issue now is that I cant go into 'display'- the entire system hangs. Dunno if this is related to the hang i got from the first run, but would kinda make sense. I can get into the display screen through the control center, but the maximum res i can get is 800x600, despite adding 1024x768 into my Xorg.conf...
Next, sound. simple problem here in that there is none. If i try auto detect the status bar continues to loop from 1-95%
As if its not blatent I am a mega noob so some help would be muchos appreciated :(

as for my system:-
3500Mhz AMD 64
MSI K8N Neo2 motherboard
ATI X800 XT graphics
SB Audigy 2 zs sound
1 gb ram
