Description of problem:

"Out of Range" error with Fedora 7 test 4 when starting X Display

I have a Matrox MGA G550 video card combined with a ViewSonic VG920 Monitor

The error message is displayed on the screen by the monitor (not the OS)
if I CTRL-ALT-F1 I can see that the X server is still running.

The text displayed on screen is:

   Out of Range
H. Frequency 30.7KHz
V. Frequency 28.8 Hz

The recommended frequency range for this monitor is fh:30~82kHz, fv:50~75Hz

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time. 

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot from CD
Actual results:

X Display fails to show, monitor displays error message

Expected results:

graphical display

Comment 3 Adam Jackson 2007-05-11 17:11:30 EDT
Can you also attach /var/log/Xorg.0.log please?
Comment 4 Steve Cobrin 2007-05-14 04:17:59 EDT
That was what I attached in the original message, it just got incorrectly titled
"output from lspci" it should have been labelled "contents of /var/log/Xorg.0.log"

Sorry for the confusion

This problem also affects the final release version

The text displayed on screen is:

   Out of Range
H. Frequency 31.2 KHz
V. Frequency 29.3 Hz

In fact the machine appears to fail to completely boot up. If I type ctrl-alt-f1
the last thing displayed on console1 is 

Enabling /etc/fstab swaps:               [  OK  ]

the other consoles hadn't even started up
Comment 6 Bug Zapper 2008-04-03 20:25:06 EDT
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.

If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.

The process we're following is outlined here:

We will be following the process here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping to ensure this
doesn't happen again.

first requested. As a result we are closing it.
