    Thumbs down Problem With Graphics in Fedora 6


    Hello all. I am new to Linux. The problem i had is that when my fedora boots and goes into the GUI, My monitor turns off and says
    "74K / 59 Hz Frequency is out of range"

    I then started the kernel in run level 2 and tried to run config-system-display
    it did'nt worked. I opened the configuration in the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file. But it does'nt have the configuration for the monitor frequencies.

    The Graphics card I am using is ASUS/ Nvidia Geforce 8500gt.

    The Xorg configuration file was having the display driver to be "VESA". I changed that to nv that also did'nt worked
    Please help

    Thanx

    Hi and Welcome !

    Check your Monitor's Manual for supported HorizSync and VertRefresh rates. Add those in xorg.conf file.
    Code:
    Section "Monitor"
        Identifier   "Monitor0"
        ModelName    "xxxx"
        HorizSync    30.0 - 71.0
        VertRefresh  50.0 - 160.0
        Option        "dpms"
    EndSection
    You should install Nvidia driver for better Graphics Performance.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Try the command gtf.
    For example if you want to give the parameters 1024x768x85Hz you would use it as: gtf 1024 768 85 in terminal, and you'll retrieve the correct horizontal frequency for the 85Hz vertical frequency. After that you'll be able to give the correct parameters to the lines Casper gave you.
    If you need a CD/DVD catalogizer, give a try to my program:

    Have you checked Monitor's Manual for supported Refresh rates?
