Hi,

Following is my setup:

OS: Windows Server 2003 Ent. Edition, SP2.
Display Adapter: RAGE XL PCI Family.
Monitor: ViewSonic VP920b.

It doesn't let me rotate at all, just beeps and does nothing.
Please help.

- DJ.

I'm afraid that can't be helped. Your Rage XL drivers do not support rotation.

Thanks Rik for the quick response :-)

Does that mean I am stuck with forever or is there way I can get it work? Like change the OS or changing the card is the only way?

Thanks,
DJ

Changing the OS won't make any difference. You need a newer card that supports rotation - yours, after all, is 10 years old.

re : "You need a newer card that supports rotation - yours, after all, is 10 years old."

I am sorry Rik, but I must correct you on that one.

There is a situation in which the RAGE XL is about three years old Smiley As in all of my servers.
Checkout the Intel SE7520BD2 motherboards' specs.

So there's a potential market for your company -> everybody (there's been like a ton of servers sold by HP, DELL, or in my case directly Intel) is buying new displays which cannot work properly (the native resolutions of 1440x900 and 1400x1050 are not supported).

BTW - powerStrip rocks.

Can you point me to a link for the latest driver for the Rage XL on your motherboard?

I too find myself using using hardware with the ATI Raage video drivers. I've tried using Catalyst, but that doesnt seem to work right with the Rage chip.

If iRotate can't do anything more than the drivers support, is it just supposed to mean quicker access to the shortcuts?  My first impression was that iRotate would allow you to do something you couldn't do before.  So what solutions are out there that allow you to do something that is not in the driver?  Can the drivers be modified, or is it the chip that doesnt support it?

iRotate is a 50k utility that provides both quicker access to features already in the driver, as well as support for multiple monitors and drivers from different vendors.

It cannot and does not provide featurres that aren't in your hardware or your display driver.

I can't seem to make iRotate work either.  I've got an AMD Sempron with Windows XP 2002.  The display adapter is VIA Chrome9 HC IGP.  Any advice (besides get a new computer!)?

The only thing you can do is try updating your display driver.

I'm having an issue as well, where I get a "noise" warning that the rotation cannot be completed.

OS: Windows XP
Card: Nvidia Riva TNT2 Model 64 (5.6.7.3)
Monitor: NEC Multisync LCD2070VX (1.6.310.2200)

All drivers are the most up-to-date according to Windows.

Once again: after updating display drivers, if it doesn't work, I'm afraid it doesn't work and there's nothing you can do about it.

As a practical matter you probably need a driver that is less than 10 years old for rotation, and youi areb't going to find one like that for the TNT.
