Description ryan_tucker 1999-10-04 17:05:02 UTC

On our flock of Compaq machines with ATI Mach64 cards and
Compaq V75 monitors, the graphical installer causes the
monitor to go into a state where it loses sync after about
half a second, clicks, and then tries again.  The only
solution is to use the text-mode installer.

Thanks!  -rt

This issue has been forwarded to a developer for further action.

Comment 2 Jay Turner 2000-02-11 17:33:59 UTC
The latest installer allows the user to manually enter sync rates is the default
ones do not work.  Reopen this bug if you are still having problems.  I was able
to make use of this monitor without any problems, but then again, I did not
connect it to a high-end video card, so that might be the difference.
