After installing 10.10 I used
Hardware Drivers (Jockey) to install the graphics driver v11.2 for my ATI HD 5770.
After restarting to activate the driver all went well and the boot screen showed up but not like the normal one the text was rough on the edges and after the boot finished the screen turned black and no signal.
I have found some forum discussions about that issue but no fix worked for me. I use a DVI to VGA adapter and I have a View Sonic E70F CRT monitor.
i found a bug report at launchpad.net take a look
sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.confand the rebooted the screen came on
after the boot or splash screen the desktop resolution is
I can't use the CCC "catalyst control center":
- I can't enable desktop effects
I have found that my EDID in my monitor is corrupt and Ubuntu is not reading my monitor when I set it to defalut and gives me this error:
In windows the display is read as generic non-PnP monitor and it can live with that while Ubuntu can't. The error message is the right size when I set my display as default.
People told me i can put refresh rates horizontal and vertical and screen resolution in xorg. Am I on the right track? How can I do that?
