Re: RedHat 7.3, S3 Trio64V+ and Sampo Alphascan 411: monitor turns off if I try 24 bit mode



Could you go to the log /var/log/XFree86.0.log and post it as well as the XF86Config (resp
XF86Config-4 if X is mixed up) which the log tells you it is using
by the way check the specs of your monitor just in case you are getting too high a refresh rate...
