New to Linux : Need some help or advise.

 

 

Just connected a new monitor to my Linux Box that i had working on a different computer. Now the resolution is huge. The Screen seems to float when the mouse pointer goes to the edge of monitor. Everything was working fine using my "15inch Monitor connected to my linux box, then connected the 19"inch Monitor and that is when the problem started. And from time to time Xserver will not load, only get Prompt. Any advise would help. Thanks all.

Looks like all you need to do is update your config files to reflect this new monitor...

Get as much info from your new monitor and use google to search for its hsync and vsync rates. You will need this to fill in the blanks in the "custom" monitor section when you run XFdrake (thats if the preset selections dont work). You can also try the GUI way by clicking on "configure your computer." DON'T forget to click test before you finish.

Where did you get the data to fill this in:

 

HorizSync 31.5-48.5

VertRefresh 50-70

 

That sure doesn't look right(HzSync) for a 19" monitor. Try rerunning XFdrake again and choosing the Generic 1280x1024 at 60 Hz. I can't imagine a 19" monitor not being able to handle that resolution. Test the configuration before committing and change your screen res to 1280x1024. Keep tweaking until you get a successful test.
