    Angry [SOLVED] Intel 82845G with a Dell P991 CRT

    Hi all,

    I did post this previously, so it is archived, however there were no responses, and since my XP Partition has become screwed, i've decided to take the giant leap to my Ubuntu, and as long as I know how to solve all my problems, I'll be 100% happy.

    I'm a complete n00b, on the ubuntu front, and have taken sometime trying to seriously solve this by myself along with other people, but nothings working, so hoping someone here can help.

    I'm running an Intel 82845G Gfx card, which is onboard, with a Dell P991 monitor.

    Within windows, I'm able to push the monitor to 1280 / 1024 with 75hz refresh, and looking for this in Ubuntu.

    Ubuntu finds the monitor with no probs, and thus far I've not seen any errors with the gfx card.
    However, when changing to 1280 / 1024 with 75hz, nothing happens, even after a restart or ctrl + alt and backspace.

    If i change to 85hz, the monitor goes completely blank, doesn't revert back to the old settings, and seems to completely die on me, causing me to hard reboot the system, which then comes up with some sort of problem, which as yet i've not figured how to resolve, forcing me to reinstall.

    The reinstall isn't a prob, as i'm new to ubuntu, but trying to learn how to solve all my problems.

    Most have been solved through friends which is good, but this, nobody seems to be able to help with.

    Let me know if theres anything you need to know, or have copied.

    Thank you!!!
    Thanks in advance!!!

    Thank you,
    Managed to solve this myself, by using the i810 intel driver, the minute it restarted, that was it, 1280/1028 with 75hz refresh.

    Verrrry happy!!!

    Sorry to bring this back up, but i've now just upgraded to Hardy, and now can't figure out how to change my Card / Res / Ref rates.

    Any help would be appreciated...

    Thanks.

    Anyone know how to change the refresh / resolution within Hardy for my card?

    My screen should be 1280 / 1028, with 75hz refresh, if that helps.

    Once again, I've managed to solve this...

    Thanks to the guys in IRC.

    Code:
    gksudo displayconfig-gtk
    allowed me to select the correct graphics card, my monitor, along with the refresh and resolution settings.

    The above should help anyone else who has this problem.
