Hello:

I have installed Sarge, but am having difficulties with
the video. The output is pixelated and the only resolution setting
available is 640X480. lspci reports that the graphics card is:
0000:00:01.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corp. 82810E DC-133 CGC
[Chipset Graphics Controller] (rev 03). The monitor is an NEC
Multisync II. The refresh rates are set according to monitorworld.com specs.

The box is a pieced-together-from-scraps machine based around a Compaq
with a 633 MHZ Celeron

Thanks for any assistance...

Roger

It's been a while but the fix is in your bios. It's hard to remember, but you have to go in and change the value of the amount of memory your video is given. That fixes it immediatley when you change it to the highest setting. Sorry I can't remember the details, I hope this helps though. Let us know how you come out...
