    Hi folks,

    Just finished installation. LCD Display can't display resolution correctly.

    Deskstop only showing "1400x1050"

    Is that an NVidia card? You could try downloading the latest driver for your card from the NVIDIA page.
    http://www.nvidia.com/object/freebsd_1.0-9746.html

    Of course, the real way to handle it is to write a strong letter to Nvidia asking them to release specs of the card, instead of hiding all the details in a closed source binary

    Hi Scorpions4ever,

    Tks for your advice and URL.

    Is that an NVidia card? You could try downloading the latest driver for your card from the NVIDIA page.
    http://www.nvidia.com/object/freebsd_1.0-9746.html
    Yes, nVidia chipset. I have problem running FreeBSD-6.2-1md64 on ASUS motherboard and ASUS graphic card as well.

    ASUS mobo M2N-E
    onboard NIC can't be detected

    ASUS graphic card
    7300GS PCI-E 16 256MB

    I found that website before but I can't find the driver for FreeBSD amd64. The driver there is for x86. Can it work on 86_64?

    Of course, the real way to handle it is to write a strong letter to Nvidia asking them to release specs of the card, instead of hiding all the details in a closed source binary
    I searched their site before and can't find where to lauch my complaint. Tks.
