Ever since I’ve changed the XSERVER to VESA in the lts.conf file I’ve been able to get most of my Dell GX100 clients to work. Although I still have a few that get the gray screen with an X cursor. I can’t quite figure it out as the specs appear to be the same. I have a similar issue with our Dell Dimension v400c models in that I have at least one that boots normally and the rest get the gray screen. I’ve tried tweaking the xorg.conf file a bit as mentioned in some of my google searches but no luck thus far. I’ve included some specs for each model. I’d appreciate any help I can get. Thanks.
