Thread: Video WTF~ness

  1. #1

    Default Video WTF~ness

    Please tell me this is happening to someone else.

    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/7783363/Screenshot.png
    Its almost like I only have 256-colors, and 16 bit. The display icon in the corner states that an unknown monitor is attached, this didn't happen with 11.3.

    I can't figure out what is happening. I have an optiplex gx270 stock with 4GB of added RAM, and thinking updating and downloading **** would help was a bad idea

    Any help will be appreciated, thanks. Until then, I'll try to fix it myself and report back.

    All I know about this is that it is a Dell Optiplex GX270, it was donated and was pronounced working before...or are you talking about a different model #?
    lol. Some bg facts, I have a bluetooth dongle plugged in with mouse and keyboard synced, a usb keyboard with usb mouse attached to that, using vga as conntector, and it seems to have full color (as far as i know) in BIOS and loading screen and chooser screen where you choose failsafe, normal, or floppy. Running a RAM memtest86+ test thing that came with the CD and gonna figure out if the RAM is good. So far so good.

    Documentation
    Those are supposedly all the specs.
    I think I am missing something you are wanting me to do. I've seen the motherboard, I saw no obvious "HEY AMD ATI ONBOARD!!" or "HEY THIS IS AWESOME NVIDIA!!!"
    lol. Thanks again for the swift replies.

    Did you try to find out using the Service Tag (if you still have it...) to find out what video card you have?

    Dell System Information / Dell Warranty Extensions & Upgrades / Dell Warranty Status

    Not sure if Dell has this implemented but I used a similar way to find out the exact hardware configuration for an HP workstation after trying to download drivers for it and to find out that same product name and code has at least 4 possible hardware configuration.

    Of course contacting Dell support is also an option, or trying another type of live distro.

    I know it's a mess but almost all brand builders have A LOT of different hardware configurations for the same product name especially for laptops though this is not the case.

    Cheers.
