Debian & onboard graphics problem

Recommended Posts



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...

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...
