FitVGA issue

Post by glodav »

I use a FITVGA, as I need to switch between various PCs using a VGA KDM switch.

My issue is that while using a FITVGA, I don't see the operating system selection screen, between the intitial boot screens and the Windows screens. In a similar way, when using GRUB to dual boot, I can't see the grub menu. Both are visible if I use the HDMI connection. Any ideas?

What happens if you connect fit-VGA directly to a VGA display?

Good thinking, I took the switch out and it made no difference BUT when I connected to a different monitor, it worked fine. I have a cheap Transonic VA926 as my monitor, and there have always been issues with screen alignment during the boot process with other computers, maybe its just a bit more dramatic with the FITPC2i.

Thanks for your help and fast response, I can work with it now I know its not the PC or the FITVGA at fault. As I only dual boot between Ubuntu and XP, knowing when to press the down arrow to select the appropriate system gets round it quite nicely.
