I have few problems with monitor and/or Graphic card:
After I just installed VL5.9 my monitor went crazy:
From the time I started computer It showed only vertical and horizontal strips, that covered all windows and text, so I couldnt do anything.
Then I just took the power off and went sleep(it was evening). Next morning the problem completely dissapeared. Then I thought it was caused by overheating of my computer(I worked a lot on it that day) and I was glad that it dissapeared.
today, after few weeks from that moment the problem returned. And now I knew, that overheating isn't the cause, because it appeared almost from the immediately after I started computer.( To be more exact - I tryed to fix litttle problem with logging-in screen, and after rebooting it occured)
The strips are most active at black screen(in terminal and at black screen when computer starts) and at desktop.
When I oppen file manager of web browser, it covers them, but when I minimize or close them, strips return.
I searched the forum and finded few topics that seems to talk about the same problem, but I couldn't understand are they talking about this problem and what should I do to solve it.
I have just switched to VectorLinux from windows and I am kins of 'slow' in understanding some technical issues, yet.
And the second problem:
It seems that VL is unrational in using my video card(Neomagic Corporation NM2200 [MagicGraph 256AV]):
scrolling in abiword and opera are enourmously slow(much slower than they were on windows 98 that was installed on this machine before).
As I understood from searching forum, it caused by some driver does not working properly.
Thanks a lot.
