are you using the correct video timing for you monitor?
Did mandrake detect/support your video card?
Get your Monitor's refresh rates from it's manual, and look in /etc/XF86Config to make sure they are right.
If you don't have the manual for your monitor, look at the back of it. There should be the model # for your CRT. Search that on the net and you will probably find the refresh rates somewhere.
I have on-board video.
ATI Rage IIc (AGP)
The video works fine under win98.
When I configure Linux - Mandrake 6.0 I get a screen but there are anywhere from 3-4 to 100's of Vertical lines that distort the screen. It makes it hard to read but is still readable. I'm wondering if anyone ever came across a similiar problem and what you did to fix.
I've played with the H,V sync rates with the same results. I've even tried different monitor and video configurations with no luck.
When I set everything to spec. using autoprobe, Linux tells me this 32BPP at 1024x768 and when it goes into test mode I see a blank screen, now my screen and video chip can do this since this is what I use in win98. I don't understand why I have no picture. But when I change things around I get the above problem.
Thank in advance for any and all input.
I realized I wasn't clear enough in my first post. The monitor is from Emachine. There was no manual and I have already tried to look for it. Emachine won't even let an outside Tech service their products.
By the Way last friday the monitor just died on me.
