Question about HP Compaq ProLiant DL380 G4 Server
I have a DL380 G4 with an imbedded Rage XL video adapter, I am running server 2008 Standard 64 bit and the best resolution I can get is 1024x768. Is there anyway to increase this?
To increase the resolution on a DL380 G4 try this.
So here is what I have done.
- Download x64.zip file from ftp://ftp.supermicro.com/driver/VGA/ATI/RageXL/x64.zip
- Run/Expand the zip to same directory
- DO NOT run the setup file or you will get the error message,
"Setup will only run in Administrator mode. Setup is aborting"
- Launch Device Mgr
- Expand the Video Driver and update Standard Video Drive. Point to directory x64.
- The server will need to reboot
- Display settings can be raised from 1024x786(16bit) to 1280x1024(32bit)
Note: 1600x1200 (16bit) is available but does not work on mine. If you set it to this setting and the video does not come back, connect up a higher resolution monitor and set it back.

I agree with fehknt.

I'm afraid that the server video cards on these are pretty poor, the only way to improve this is to add a PCI video card (I added a cheap MX440 to a server I run to get around this). If your PCI slots are all filled up then I'm afraid there's really nothing you can do.
You could TRY to decrease the color bit depth, and see if that helps. Often the video drivers don't support detecting when a higher resolution is possible due to a lower bit depth, or the cards don't actually use less storage for them. (the problem is a lack of RAM on the card to hold a full screen full of pixels at a higher resolution.)
