    initial v1  
    1616- "Use fail-safe video mode" works perfectly, even leaving resolution set to "Default" in the boot menu.
    1717- but if I ever select 640x480 in the boot menu, I return back to situation one, the monitor turns off and stays off even after the app_server starts!
     18- '''Edit To Add''': weirdly, I ''still'' need to select 800x600 in the boot menu if I want the '''nVidia''' accelerant to work correctly. If I leave "Default" resolution, the screen turns off! syslogs coming up soon.
    1819
    1920So in a nutshell, there is a regression somewhere between r41848 and Alpha3, which makes the VESA 640x480 resolution not work. I can't fault Haiku for picking that one instead of 800x600, it makes sense to pick the most conservative res. at first and let the user improve.. But I don't understand why 640x480 no longer works now.
