Screen not full
« on: October 07, 2009, 08:59:58 am »
ok im running Linux now!! YAY!!!  ;D

 im doing the updates to prepare for MCE installation.
but ive noticed about a 1/4-1/2in of my screen/desktop is missing off the right side. And i cant go above 600x800.  ???
Is this normal? maybe the updates fix??  ???
the image does not fill the screen either. (i have a wide screen TV. maybe i just need a reboot so they cant talk things out?..lol)

i would post the specs on my Nvidia card but i cant see them without removing it.  :-\ ..so after a power-down maybe (i think its a basic 6000-8000 series GeForce though.)

also i have no need of a 2nd NIC if im useing this as a Hybrid right??
im planing on adding one later but i need to pull another cat-5 to the location first....

No, you need the 2nd NIC, even if it isn't doing anything yet!

You need to update to the latest nVidia drivers to fix your screen issues.

There are several wiki articles on both subjects....
