View Full Version : [ubuntu] Display problem

June 9th, 2010, 09:39 AM
So, I'm having a problem with my install of Ubuntu 10.04 (Kernel2.6.32-21-generic):

Here's the deal. The right side, and bottom side of my screen are both have about an inch I'd say cut off. The monitor shows as unknown and I can't take it out of 1600x1200 without it going absolutely ballistic.

I'm using an old Everex N Series Model 3500 with an S3 Unichrome Pro graphics, running 1gig of ram, 40 gig HD, 1.3 Celeron

Anyhow, I got a little tired of Windows going ballistic, running slow, the whole nine and then finally crashing (The CD ROM on this old beast doesn't work so I can't install that way, and truthfully, I really don't too.)

So, any advice on how I can fix this picture problem. Also, every now and again it Ubuntu has a tendency to freeze, so any help there would be appreciated too.
