Problem with monitor
Can anybody come to my assistance?
I have an nvidia card connected to a CRT via a DVI to *edit* VGA adaptor. I have struggled to get 12.04 installed (live cd wouldn't boot without a flag set in grub) and the installed OS will not boot without 'nomodeset' added to the boot options. All is not well though still.
I filled a bug about this issue where there is more detailed info about the symptoms and system. https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ux/+bug/991068
I was reading this thread about a similar problem but it concerned an ATI card rather than an nvidia. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1938447
I'm guessing the system is not getting the correct EDID info, but I could be entirely wrong. It's happened before..
/longing for times gone by when ctrl alt +/- worked to adjust resolutions and there was a xorg.conf somewhere to edit..
