Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 142796
Problem dealing with IBM L200p monitor
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:56 EST
Description of problem:
The installation proceeds without problem until after being prompted
for desired resolution. The IBM L200p monitor is designed to run at
1600x1200. If I select this (or 1280x1024), the screen goes black and
I get the message from the monitor hardware "Input signal out of
range". I am only able to run X Windows at 800x600 resolution. I
tried editing the X config file, adding better resolutions, but again
the screen went black.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

X.Org bugzilla at http://bugs.freedesktop.org detailing the problem,
and attaching your X server log, config file to the X.org bug

Log file generated by X windows initialization
Version 188.8.131.524 of xorg displays the same symptoms as the earlier version.
Resolution 800x600 is the only one that does not give the message "Imput signal
out of range".
Does 6.8.2 in fc3-testing improve the situation at all?

I was referred to the xorg site and bugzilla, from where I installed 184.108.40.2063.
Although that did not fix the problem, I was advised to hand edit the xorg.conf
file. Apparently this LCD monitor requires
in Section Monitor, rather than the range 56-85. With this configuration
change, X Windows now works fine at release 220.127.116.113.
Thanks for the help.
Ok thanks.. updating status.
