ATI 3D Rage II C + Sony CPD 200 ES

Post by Vladimir Lens » Mon, 07 Dec 1998 04:00:00

I'v got an ATI 3D Rage II C and Sony CPD-200 ES display. Chip is Mach64 with
4 megs EDO memory. Videocard is in XFree86 3.3.3 Card list, monitor isn't.
When I try to start X (startx) monitor become black, after I hit Alt-F1 I
can see a massage No modes to run (or something). There are a coupple of
lines about Trying mode... I've got the feeling all the modes Mach64 server
is trying are too hi to my monitor, bat I don't get a Out of scan
range-massage. Horizontal freq is 30-70 kHz, Vertical 50-120 Hz. VGA16
server works good, but I'm not satisfied with it. So, what can it be? I
can't put whole error massage in to the massage right now, because I send it
ftom Windows, but I can do it leater, if it possibaly helps.

?Videocard is in XFree86 3.3.3 Card list, monitor isn't.

tell it you're using a standard multisync monitor.  that should fix the
"no mode NxK" errors.

        I have seen many people asking for help with this video card and
none of the answers I have seen worked for me.  I just recently upgraded
to a Pentium Pro 180 and an ATI 3D Pro Turbo PC2TV w/8MB SGRAM.  Some more
pertinent details:
        CPU:  Intel Pentium Pro 180
        MB:  Intel Venus 440FX
        Video:  ATI 3D Pro Turbo PC2TV w/8MB SGRAM
        Kernel:  Linux 2.0.30 i486 (APM features are enabled; does that
                make a difference?)
        XF86:  3.3.1
        LibC:  5.4.38
        Monitor:  KFC (generic; no KF Chicken jokes please) 15"
I have included the output from startx (error3.txt) and my config file
(XF86Config).  When I start X windows (with 'startx') all I get is a blank
screen.  I know the monitor is still getting a signal because it doesn't
power itself down.  The screen is just black.  If you need any more
details, do not hesitate to ask.  I need help, PLEASE!!!
