Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 8556
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:53 EDT
I am having difficulty setting up my monitor. When I use SuperProbe it
tells me that my video card is S3 Virge/DX. I am running on a Compaq
Presario 4824. My monitor is a ViewSonic A75s whic does not appear on your
list. I have tried using custom with just about many of the possibilities
that exist but at this poin it is just a guess as to which is the correct
one. Perhaps you can help. I have worked all day on this. I have found
no relevent data on this item in your database.
Sincerely, Jim Cochrane
This may or may not help, but I have generally found that the best way to treat
an unknown monitor is to use the following settings:
1. For a 14" or 15" monitor, use
If this doesn't work, try the 50-90 Hz setting.
2. For 17" and larger monitors, use
There have been cases where they don't work, but in the vast majority of cases,
those settings work fine, although they're probably not optimal.
However, see bug 8554 for details of a particularly problematic case where
further detective work was needed.
Not a bug, but Rawhide Xconfigurator now supports DDC probing
