Re: Anyone have an ATI X800XL that displays properly?

I have an ASUS A7N8X mobo with an NForce2 chipset and a Samsung Syncmaster 900p CRT. I just got an ATI X800XL AGP8X thinking that it would work in FC4 and I can only get it to display 2D X in eye-bleeding VESA mode after going through all the diagnostic steps triggered when X won't start. There was no X800XL listed and picking the other X800s didn't work.

I tried the fglrx driver from livna too but that seems to drive my monitor out of spec eventhough it looks like the Hsync and Vsync are correct in my xorg.conf

If you have this or a close configuration working, please post your xorg.conf as this 60 Hz refresh is driving me nuts.


Hi Mike,

I have an ATI X800XL (PCIE not AGP) and I also had trouble finding the right mix. I will just give you my xorg.conf, so you can judge for yourself. You do have to change the frequencies for your monitor though, before you try it.

Hope it helps.
