What's wrong? and What should I do?[/img]


just a guess, you could try setting your monitor refresh rate to 75 (it's probably at 60 now). of course, it might be something completely different, that i'm completely unaware of :S



probably my monitor refresh rate = 85
so ..maybe there is something wrong with my S3

thanks everybody


well, no matter how crappy drivers - we really shouldn't crash out, if possible to fail safely ?


Let me tell you this, under windows I get 1024x768, 32 bit colors
but under linux i need to change 32bit to 24 bit and it works fine. I was getting the same error when i tried to run my apps previously developed under windows under Linux.
So, try to change either bits per pixel, resolution or frequency
