View Full Version : F9: 1680 x 1050 not recognized

I've installed F9 in an nvidia based system, but F9 is not able to display the correct resolution using Fedora's shipped drivers.

MoBo: Gigabyte GA-M55plus-S3G, using onboard video.
Monitor: Samsung SyncMaster 2032BW.

Max. supported resolution: 1680 x 1050 @ 60 Hz

I have configured that resolution in the monitor settings (Display), but F9 displays 1600 x 1200 instead.

Any suggestions? The computer has no problems under Ubuntu, it displays the proper resolution using the nVidia proprietary driver.

I have the same problem. When the livna drivers come, I think that'll fix the problem. I don't know when though.

You should be able to fix it even w/ the basic vesa driver.

Look through the X logs (/var/log/Xorg.0.log etc) and see why it can't negotiate the native size. May say something like frequency out of range or whatever.

Use the search tab for "xorg.conf mode"

I reduced the refresh rate to 59.9 and it works.

I'm having a similar problem... I'm using an Acer P223w monitor, with a native resolution of 1680x1050. It seems to be autodetected, but X only gives me five different resolutions to choose from, with the highest being 1024x768 (which isn't a widescreen resolution, so things look stretched).

Looking through my log files, I see the following:


(--) NV(0): CRTC 0 is currently programmed for DFP
(II) NV(0): Using DFP on CRTC 0
(--) NV(0): Panel size is 1024 x 768
(II) NV(0): EDID vendor "ACR", prod id 14
(II) NV(0): Using hsync ranges from config file
(II) NV(0): Using vrefresh ranges from config file
(II) NV(0): Printing DDC gathered Modelines:
(II) NV(0): Modeline "1680x1050"x0.0 146.25 1680 1784 1960 2240 1050 1053 1059 1089 -hsync -vsync (65.3 kHz)
...Lots more modelines deleted to save space...
(II) NV(0): Modeline "1400x1050"x60.0 122.61 1400 1488 1640 1880 1050 1051 1054 1087 -hsync +vsync (65.2 kHz)
(II) NV(0): Panel is TMDS
(--) NV(0): VideoRAM: 131072 kBytes
(==) NV(0): Using gamma correction (1.0, 1.0, 1.0)
(II) NV(0): Acer: Using hsync range of 30.00-81.00 kHz
(II) NV(0): Acer: Using vrefresh range of 55.00-76.00 Hz
(II) NV(0): Acer: Using maximum pixel clock of 170.00 MHz
(II) NV(0): Estimated virtual size for aspect ratio 1.5437 is 1680x1050
(II) NV(0): Clock range: 12.00 to 350.00 MHz
(II) NV(0): Not using mode "1680x1050" (exceeds panel dimensions)
(II) NV(0): Not using mode "1152x720" (exceeds panel dimensions)
So, it gathers a whole host of modelines, which all look appropriate for my setup (though the 1680x1050 modeline I was using in F8 was a bit different), but somewhere along the line, it decides my monitor is only 1024x768, and throws out almost all the modes!

Hi guys,

I was not able to find the correct configuration although I've tried several different modelines, with and without interlacing. Could someone post here their xorg.conf file? Thanks!

Thanks Cloneu2.

But I was looking for someone that is using the drivers distributed with Fedora, not those from nvidia.

Anyone out there?
