Attn: all AN-M2HD owners
« on: March 17, 2008, 01:47:17 am »
I need help installing the video drivers (Nvidia┬« Geforce7050PV/NF630a), actually any and all drivers, bios updated included, for AN-M2HD on Linux MCE 0710 Beta4 in order to get the HDMI output to function properly.  I know if it were windows all I have to do is insert the disc and read the directions but under linux its a bit different. Any help concerning this wold be greatly appreciated.

As far as the BIOS upgrade, if there is one, a lot of the time it will only be an windows executable. I've found my only solution in the past is to just install windows, upgrade any firmware I could, then install linux and go from there. Check the manufacuters site or google for "AN-M2HD bios" and see if you find something that will work in linux. I most definitely would not try to install a bios upgrade from a virtual machine, just to mention it. -Ruben

My install went fine with this board and didn't need to upgrade any drivers. However this may help for the graphics drivers:

Mine is working fine as well.  Is this update for better performance or something along those lines.  for instance, I have not been able to get a video signal at over 780p. Would this enable it it use 1080p?

Hey thanks for the info guys. I'll try your link zug. I'm just trying to get any video to show on my tv. I'll deal with the higher resolution later.
