Re: Guessing modeline for a AOC LCD TV
Yes, it's a GeForce 8300, from lspci,
02:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation C77 [GeForce 8300] (rev a2)
When I ran hwinfo, this chipset reported timings which I entered into xorg.conf, which now appear too conservative. They were:
HorizSync 31.0 - 48.0
VertRefresh 50.0 - 90.0
Running xrandr, a maximum resolution is given:
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 175, current 1024 x 768, maximum 1024 x 768
I found some information about the display from this PDF, http://www.abt.com/documents/24789/Spec_L19W961.pdf
(but no timings) But I know this monitor is capable of 1366x768, so I expect the timings would be greater too. I don't know how much greater, but I expect they should be similar to another lcd tv with the same maximum resolution.
There has one other problem. Whenever I attempt to test X from a root console the system appears to hang. The screen goes black and I must reset the pc because it does not respond to either Alt-Ctl-Bksp or Alt-Ctl-Delete. This has happened with both /etc/X11/xorg.conf and /root/xorg.conf.new. I'm going to attempt logging in with ssh next, because neither dmesg nor Xorg.log.old have shown any errors after rebooting. So there may be a bug in the video driver.
Thank you for any assistance you can offer.
