RE: New Monitor

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


I am running RHEL AS 4 U5.
It is an Acer H213H new-fangled monitor (it's huge).
The video card is an ATI Radeon 9250.
I have tried hooking it up with a VGA cable and a DVI cable. It made no
difference.

I tried hooking it up to a VGA monitor. The floppy disk light came on and
stayed on, so I unplugged the floppy drive and disabled it in the BIOS.
I got some text display on the VGA monitor related to the BIOS only. No Red
Hat text of any kind

I do not know how to boot up in text only mode. You will have to tell me how
to do that

I hope it is not DOA. It was working a couple of months ago. I did not have
the money to renew my Red Hat Academic subscription until today, and I was
hoping to get the box updated.

Thanks to all you guys; I hope I answered all your questions. I love this
install list.

We need a bit more data:
	What version of Red Hat are you running?
	What monitor is it? (make and model)

Try booting in text only mode and see if it comes up.  If you don't know
how to do that, let us know, but also tell us the info above.
