    PACKARD BELL TJ75-F2475-GN-100TK setup problem


    Hi, I have some problems with my laptop. When 1 tried to install fedora 12 screen freeze and setup gets locked. Because of that i installed fedora 10. But when i try start graphic mode it gives error.

    Its properties :

    Intel - Core i3-330M - 2.13GHz
    3mb cash
    3gb ddr3 rem
    WXGA Diamond View LED HD screen
    Intel hm55 graphic prossessor (128mb)
    arheros ar5b93 wireless network adapter
    broadcom netlink tm gigabit ethernet
    I tried to configure xorg.conf manually as explained the thread below.

    linuxforums.org/forum/ubuntu-help/161878-freeze-when-starting-any-graphics.html
    Section "Device"
    Identifier "Configured Video Device"
    Option "RenderAccel" "true"
    EndSection

    Section "Monitor"
    Identifier "Configured Monitor"
    HorizSync 31.5 - 50.0
    VertRefresh 40-90
    Option "UseEdidFreqs" "1"
    Option "ReducedBlanking"
    EndSection

    Section "Screen"
    Identifier "Default Screen"
    Monitor "Configured Monitor"
    Device "Configured Video Device"
    DefaultDepth 24
    Subsection "Display"
    Depth 24
    Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
    EndSubsection
    EndSection

    It says HorizSync keys is invalid.

    How can i fix this ?

    Thanks alot for your help.

    Hello and welcome!

    That HorizSync rate looks rather low. I'd try changing the 50 to somewhere around 80 to see if that helps. If possible, try to find the exact refresh rates for both, vertical and horizontal in your user manual or on the Packard Bell website and use those numbers.

    You can have your system create a xorg.conf base on your current system. Just run this command, with root permissions.
    Code:
    Xorg -configure
    You may first have to stop the x-server, and exit to a terminal screen.
    Code:
    init 3

    Thank u for your warm welcome. At frirst i tried increasing HorizSync values. It didn't work.
    Then i tried writing "init3" and "Xorg -configure" here is the output.

    ...
    (++) Using config file: "/root/xorg.conf.new"
    (EE) open /dev/fb0: No such file or directory

    Backtrace
    0: Xorg(xorg_backtrace+0x3b) [0x812bc5b]
    1: Xorg(xf86SigHandler+0x51) [0x80bcc81]
    2: [0x130400]

    Fatal Server error:
    Caught signal 11. Server Aborting
    Aborted
    Then i tried using vesa. Now x starts but gives kernel failure.

    Edit: I updated kernel, there is no change. When i logout, x crashes. If i dont open vesa in boot it gets lock.
