Re: [vox-tech] monitor troubles

It looks like this might be my problem. I checked and there is 64MB of video RAM for this card, but this is what I am getting in my XF86config.0.log file

Quoting Jennifer Stickel (jrstickel@ucdavis.edu):

Is there a tool I can use to figure out the amount of video RAM or do I have to look for manuals that might list that?

/var/log/XFree86.0.log (created each time the X server starts up) should include stuff like this:
