Diamond Stealth 64 964Chip Black Screen

Post by Czyz-M » Sun, 10 Dec 1995 04:00:00



HELP!  I'm getting a black screen with a visable mouse which does not move.
With the SVGA server, everything works but I can't get a res higher than
320x300.  

My monitor is a Relisys RE1420.   In windows I have to use the IBM8514
Diamond driver for my display to work.

What should I be using?  Is my Monitor setting right?  

HELP!HELP!

with RAMDAC "normal"  a VRAM card never can work correctly!
why did you specify that? remove the RAMDAC && clockchip line
and try again.  if no ramdac is detected then, try using

        RAMDAC    "ibm_rgb524"
        ClockChip "ibm_rgb524"

if you can find a IBM ramdac chip on your card.

1. Diamond Stealth 64 964Chip Black Screen

Help!   When starting X, I get a black screen with the mouse pointer
visable and not moving.

I have a Stealth 64 chipset:964. I'm using the S3 server.  I do not get
any errors on the startup.

However, when I use the SVGA server, all of the functions work, but I do
not get a res higher than 320x300.

I have a Relisys RE1420 monitor.

Help!
