Re: Display problem in RHEL 5

Anoop,
are you getting any error msg on screen? or while bootup?

Few suggestion for you

1) try to change monitor to verify monitor is working fine

2) check /etc/X11/xorg.conf file if you have any working system with same configuration compare this file specially below parameters

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "Videocard0"
Monitor "Monitor0"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 16
Modes "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 24
Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSect

Hi Anoop,
Try system-config- display --reconfigure

Shalom,


At the system console, log on as root.

init 3

system-config-display --reconfig

This should detect and correctly configure and LCD monitor.

If not, you will need to download drivers from Acer, but I rarely if ever had to do that for an LCD display.

This works best if there is no KVM switch in the cable between the monitor and its display card.
