    Resolution does not configure to 1024x768


    I have a Fedora Core 2 install on Gateway VTX400 laptop and the laptop supports 1024x768 resolution. However my screen only shows 800x600. Although I can set X11 to use 1024x768 (by modifying /etc/X11/xorg.conf and by using Start->System Settings->Display) however the resolution remains the same, i.e. at 800x600. I notice that GNOME does not allow me to set the resolution higher than 800x600 (by using Start->Preferences->Resolution), how do I fix this?

    You need to alter the vertical and horizontal refresh rates in the xorg.conf to match those of the LCD screen.

    Changed xorg.conf

    Any idea how to figure out what the correct refresh rates are? I've tried setting them high and GNOME still won't pick it up.

    I woul d suggest contacting Gateway for the specs.

    Be careful changing your vertical and horizontal refresh rates randomly, this can harm your monitor or screen.

    I had the same problem. Also didn't know the settings for my monitor (and didn't know how to configure Xorg rather than X11).

    I reinstalled and found that early in the install screens was a setting that let me tell the system what resolutin to use. I'd missed it on the first install. If all else fails, hope this helps.

    In the Display menu you can change your LCD type ... do you try to put your screen like this "LCD 1024x768" ???

    LCD 1024x768


    Yes, I have configured my screen as "LCD 1024x768". I don't know what the model number really is
