External Display b972 question...

jxgriffijxgriffi Registered User, DL Beta, Hog Beta
When I plug in an external monitor (Philips NON touchscreen) using a standard DVI cable on my Roadhog 4, whenever the console starts up and tries to boot, it locks up and I get a "hog login:" screen and doesn't continue. I have to unplug the DVI cable in order to boot the console. Once the console is up, I plug in the DVI cable in order to get the screen operational.

Any ideas?

I have no wings.
I have no USB drives other than the standard Hog one that ships with the console.
I have no keyboard attached.

    Please provide me with the monitors information.
    I just tried with our wing and an elo with no problems.
    Need to test with a non-touchscreen real quick.

    I'll pull the information in the morning Michael. Was just odd because I've never seen DVI do that to a startup (a USB drive yes, but not DVI).

    Michael,

    So apparently, it is a Phillips brand, but an ELO touchscreen. I'm using the DVI connector and no USB connector. It is an ELO ET1725L-0NWD-N monitor.

    This is the error I am getting if it's inline at console startup.

    Thanks for the information, I will check to see if I have that model here in the lab.

    Hope the error makes sense too.

    Can you post the error here?
    It's on your google drive and I can not access it.

    Sorry about that…I thought I set the permissions. Try this one now (should be able to open without signing into google).

    Sorry, but the link is no good.

    Weird…but if I right click and "open image in new tab" it opens. How else can I attach it??

    Got it, sorry I was hitting the wrong button.

    Basically sounds like linux is having a fit about that display at bootup. We are about to upgrade the Linux kernel this year and more than likely it will smooth things out. I am curious, does that monitor have a VGA port and if so do you see the problem when connecting through VGA?
