FC9 install, ? Mainboard & Graphics Card Driver problem
- I am having a problem with FC 9 *(Fedora Core 9)* install. The original
thread is here: link <http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=195664>.
(reply no. 7).
*For FC9 install*:
Tried the install method described in this
(reply # 5<http://www.fedoraforum.org/forum/showpost.php?p=921525&postcount=5>
& # 6 <http://www.fedoraforum.org/forum/showpost.php?p=921531&postcount=6> :
Windows & FC9 Linux on separate partitions, with option to choose which OS
to boot through the BIOS).* [To do this, I disconnected the Windows HD (as I
have 2 Hard Disks: 250 GB IDE with Win XP Pro & 500 GB SATA on first
partition of which I installed Linux, after disconnecting the 250 GB IDE
(Windows) drive) ].*
The FC9 install (done with a boot FC9 DVD) itself went smoothly. After
re-booting, I got the Fedora OS selector screen and booted into that, but
then there was a *display problem* (use a 17" LG Flatron L177WSB Monitor)
and the screen went blank with Error Message (provided by LCD firmware)
stating: 'Refresh rate out of range" with a Vertical Refresh Rate displayed
of 77.5 MHz). So, I re-booted, went into BIOS and chose the on-board VGA as
the graphics display.
But got the same Error Message ("Out of range" or something similar) with
the on-board display selected.
*(System Hardware Specs are at the end of this post).*
What could be wrong? I think Fedora 9 would not have got the drivers
on-board/during install for the Graphics Card or the Motherboard/On-board
VGA. How can one troubleshoot this? Don't know which drivers to get & how to
install them, esp as Fedora simply won't boot up & there is no Internet
connection available in Linux.
CPU: Pent 4 640 (3.20 GHz) (Socket 775LGA)
Mainboard: Gigabyte GA-73VM-S2
(nForce 610i chipset)
PCI-E Graphics Card: XFX GeForce
On-board Graphics: GeForce 7050 (specs as in Mainboard link above)
RAM (Memory): 2 GB DDR2 at 667 MHz
OS (on 250 GB IDE (Master) HDD): Win XP Prof SP3
Guidance greatly appreciated.
