View Full Version : [all variants] ViewSonic TFT monitor acting up

April 29th, 2010, 06:47 AM
I have two computers at my desk. One runs Debian and one dual boots Ubuntu and Windows 7. Both machines are connected to the same monitor, a ViewSonic VG175. On Windows 7 and Ubuntu the monitor works flawless, but on Debian i can only go up to a resolution of 1280x960. If i try the full 1280x1024 the monitor is capaple of, i get a random distorted image, like half the screen turning blue or vertical yellow lines. Both machines use a nVidia card and the latest binary drivers. Iv'e checked the configuration on another monitor and swapped the inputs on the ViewSonic and everything execpt 1280x1024 in Debian works flawless. Any pointers as to why this is happening?
