A. Solutions to Common Problems > A.4. Setting Up Your Monitor

Setting Up Your Monitor

I’ve tried out Move on about a dozen different desktop and laptop computers, and although it almost always configured the video card correctly, it only got the monitor’s configuration right about half the time. You’ll know that Move failed to figure out your monitor correctly if the text is much larger than you expect it to be, if the fonts are blocky, or if your screen “scrolls” when you drag your mouse to the edges.

The solution to this problem is usually quite simple. First, launch the hardware configuration tool by clicking K Menu Administer your system Configure your computer. (If you can’t see the K Menu, drag your mouse to the bottom left corner and the screen will scroll so you can see it.) This brings up the MandrakeLinux Control Center, a centralized place for several different configuration tools common to all distributions of Linux made by Mandrakesoft. The control center is used to configure your video card, monitor, network connections, printer, mice, and so on.
