    good graphic driver for "acer aspire 3004LMi"?


    Hey

    I have installed mandriva on this computer, but the graphic driver isn't so good. When I use the internet, the sites are very big.
    Have had this problem on other pc's, but installing the right driver fixed the problem, but it dosn't seem like mandriva have the right driver for this computer.

    Info about my computer:
    Chip-set : SIS M661MX - 400 MHz FSB
    Graphic : SiSM661MX

    Is there a driver in mandriva that can make this graphic card work good?

    Have you tried to configure xorg.conf file? Post the contents of /etc/X11/xorg.conf file.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Yeah. In the device section, under driver, I changed to "sis"
    Don't remember what it stood before I changed it to "sis".

    But it caused more problems than it solved :P

    Here is the contents of /etc/X11/xorg.conf:

    Native sis driver doesn't work most of the time. Try "vesa" driver instead.

    Have tried vesa, but get the same problem then.
    Have tried all the "sis" drivers that I could find as well. But they either have the same problem or dosn't work for my graphic card.
