"No Screens Found"
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hiya,


I am using a Gforce 4 MX 440 with Tv out and need to install the Nvidia drivers (from what I have read) to use the Tv out under Linux.


I am using Mandrake 9.1 and have used this configuration in the past with the Nvidia drivers no problem, but for some reason on this install I get "No screens found" and crash back to prompt.


Upon doing a modprobe I get this error

root@localhost lee]# modprobe nvidia
Warning: loading /lib/modules/2.4.21-0.13mdk/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.o will taint the kernel: non-GPL license - NVIDIA

Module nvidia loaded, with warnings
[root@localhost lee]#
lsmod shows this

For anyone else with this problem it is worth checking to make sure your bios is set up corectly

PNP os= No
assign IRQ for VGA = Yes.
