Steps to Reproduce:
sytem to work
Do you have INF files?
Note that no monitor will be automatically detected on x86-64 installs.
As Bill mentions, monitor autodetection only works on 32bit
x86 systems only. That is a limitation of the ddcprobe utility
which uses the video BIOS via a mechanism that only works on
32bit x86 hardware.
If you try to install the 32bit version of Fedora Core on this system
it may autodetect the monitor properly.
If you would like to have this monitor added to the list of monitors,
please provide the .INF file from the manufacturer as a file
attachment, and it can be added to the monitor database for manual
Thanks in advance.
closing, no response.
