I have a monitor that is hooked up through a switch to both a Windows XP box (and HP computer) and an OpenSUSE box (a Dell).
When I view the XP box, the image on the monitor is perfect. However, when I view the OpenSUSE box, it’s NEVER perfect. No matter how many times I try to configure the monitor (via the monitor’s own buttons) or try “auto-configure” (also a monitor button), the screen is always either wavy or warped in some way. Any idea what might be causing this?
The monitor is HP Pavilion F50.

- Refresh Rate is under “Configure Desktop”
- Monitor Resolution/Colors are under “SaX2”
