Smile Re: Reduced Blanking on DVI-D

Hi:

I got myself an ATI Radeon 9550 card and it worked out of the box with the free driver. The proprietary driver needed the proper modeline, but works fine once it is given.

Best,

Oliver

Question Re: Reduced Blanking on DVI-D

Hey all,

Since I have bought a Dell 2405FPW, which has a native resolution of 1920x1200, it's been impossible to get this widescreen LCD to work with my ATI Radeon 9800 Pro. So much so that I had to dump Linux and use Winbloze instead...

Now that I have a new graphics card (an XFX GeForce 6600GT), I want to know what's the exact settings that I should add to the xorg.conf file. I'm planning on using Kubuntu, but I have to know if my monitor is going to work in Linux first.

P.S. it's good to know that at least someone at nVidia is monitoring this thread. This gives me a reassurance that they care about their customers, unlike some other company...

1c3d0g,

Try reading this thread...

http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=514313

That thread discusses the problems that you are most likely having. Additionally, davemoore's responses on the fourth page cover how to find out the reduced mode timing that your monitor really wants you to use.

Good luck!

It is amazing how I can plug an Apple PowerBook 15" into the monitor (243T) and it works great, a Mac mini, or any old Winodws machine - but Linux on a powerful machine with good video card and I am fighting it for weeks (until I give up)! The xorg.conf out of this thread didn't work for me, only allowed 1680x1050 resolution.

I have no problems with my 1920x1200 monitor (Dell 2405FPW) on DVI-D on a 6600GT card.
On a FX5200 card it would not work with the auto-detected settings because "the clock was too high".
The latest driver has a configuration option to ignore this check.

I was trying it with a 5700 Ultra card, but I do have an extra 6600GT that I could try?

Update: I tried a Radeon 9700 Pro, and all worked fine, so it must be something with the 5700 Ultra.
Thanks,
Chris

See earlier messages in the thread about the pixel clock limit. This is probably what causes your problem.
