Monitor Info. for xe3-gf needed for XFree86.

Hi I'm in desparate need of more
information on the display for
the xe3-gf.

Its a 15" TFT-XGA LCD display.

I'm being asked for:

Hsync: RANGES!!!
V-refresh rate: RANGES!!!

and a name :-0 (Is it from HP or
another source???)


I've already looked at the Tech.
notes but they are of no help...

The support help at HP are also of
no help as they insist they have no
idea!!!!

Hello JD,

The detailed specs for XE3 series is here :

It seems that your video card is based on Intel 830 chipset. Therefore, you absolutely need XFree86-4.2.0 to have it working well.

For X11 configuration, I would suggest you to use Xconfigurator (RedHat) or sax2 (SuSE) or drakxconf (Mandrake). Select 15-inch generic laptop display (or something like that) and it will work perfectly.

Good luck.
