Video Driver problems on startup

Hello,

I am a very new user to this QNX thing, and unfortunatly I have managed
to bugger it up on the first hurdle. I cant load up Photon as I have
selected an unsupported display resolution and only get an messed up screen
when it loads now. Can someone please tell me how to reset it to something
like VESA 1400x1050 16bit or something.

Anyways, I would be most greatful if someone could help :slight_smile:

when qnx is loading, press the space bar which will give you some
options on how to load. I believe F1 lets you load in terminal mode.
once there type
crttrap clear
this clears which ever video format you have selected, reboot the
computer into QNX (normally) and then you should be able to choose the
video type again…

Weeehey!, thanks!

P.S. I think that I cant use my proper display driver. I have an “ATI
RAGE MOBILITY 128 AGP 2X”, and the nearest that QNX can come up with is ATI
128 Rage Pro, every time I select this I end up in the same mess. Is there
some kind of web site that I can get the correct driver?. This is mainly as
I would like some fast video, and not this crappy corruption that I get when
I drag a window.

Thanks for your help
