Both my BIOS and GRUB looks like this. Everything works just fine once X is started. I have no idea whats wrong?
@hund First two things that spring to my mind are display config problems or a framebuffer issue, but as I am currently learning, I don't know enough about Gentoo to diagnose anything.
Does the problem persist outside of GRUB before the X session starts?
@blackernel As I said, I have the issue in BIOS as well. :)
@hund Oh $#!7, sorry I missed that bit.
If it's in the BIOS, it has to be a firmware level issue. I've had experience changing the CMOS battery and it helping a graphical glitch in my BIOS, but in general that's way outside of my wheelhouse, sorry.
@blackernel No worries. ;) I'll have to investigate it some day. It's quite the annoying glitch.
@hund first the ryzen, then this...
@benoitj It's not my year. :)
@hund Maybe check your monitor. Sometimes I've seen a monitor show strange artifacts until you hit the "rescan" button or whatever it's called on your monitor or when the resolution changes. Since X is working, it makes me think that it's probably not your video card or bios that is causing the issue. I would think that would at least cause problems for starting your X session.
@alchemyjones I'll check it out. :)
@hund reseat all the things.
@Leelaroo I've done that. :)
@hund well, outside of turning it off and letting the registers and volitile memory completely clear looks like a hardware issue
@hund Have you tried this auto align feature that most monitors have?
@Ghosty No, I shall try it.
@hund Did you find a solution?
@Ghosty O haven't even started yet. :P
@hund Unless you dual boot, just hide grub completely.
@chozron I don't want to sweep the issue under the rug, I want to solve it! :)
@hund hahaha 😂 Ok, solve it then hide 😋
@hund only that monitor, or others as well? And has it always been like that, or is it a new issue?
@dnkl It's all monitors, they're all the same though. And it's a fairly new issue.
@hund looks like it's either firmware (bios) or the graphics card then. Except that it's a new issue... Unless you've recently switched card, or upgraded bios?
@dnkl Nope. It's all very old and untouched. :)
@hund of this is not on board, try removing and reinstalling the card.
@benoitj I'll try that.
