View Full Version : Moniter Frequency

8th April 2007, 04:01 AM
When i installed fedora core 6 and it asked me to reboot it said monitor was out of range. I tried to a resolution=800x600 in the command line in grub and finished the install, at the end of install the screen flickered like a malfunctioning old school Nintendo game. I then i restated the computer in same resolution but at test login screen it does same thing monitor out of range. My monitor supports H=30-70khz and V=50-160hz. When the error occurred it said the H=93.1khz/V=58.5hz. I want to know if their is a way to fix this w/o run lvl 3 because it generates the same error.

nforce 570 mxp

amd athlon x2 5600+
pny nvidia 7900 gs oc

H=93.1khz/V=58.5hz. implies you have 1600 lines (like maybe 1920x1600) as the resolution.

Start at run level 1 (put "1" or "single" on the end of the kernel line in grub)..

Edit /etc/X11/xorg.com and remove the hi res lines from the "Modes" lines
Modes "1920x1600" "1280x1024" "1024x768"
Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768"

or similar.

I tried what you said and booted into runlevel 1; at the prompt i entered
(edit /etc/x11/xorg.com) and said command not found. I tried it without edit and said file not found.

any suggestions!

nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Notice that the subdirectory is X11 and not x11. When stevea wrote "edit" he meant that you should open the file in a text editor and change its contents.
