General :: CentOS 5.4 Screen Resolution?

Feb 1, 2010

i have been searching for the past few days on how to do this i have found many articles all telling me slightly different ways of doing so but none have worked. the monitor i am using displays at 1680x1050@60Hz however most access will be from a laptop running at 1366x768 through VNC i have the VNC working thats not a problem my current problem is that when i turn it on the screen defaults to 1600x1200@60Hz when i go to System>Preferences>Screen Resolution the options i get are 1600x1200, 1280x1200,1024x768, 800x600, 640x480 however when i change to something other than 1600x1200 the refresh rate changes to 85Hz and cannot be displayed by my monitor so i have to wait for it to default back, not that i want to change it to any of those in the long term /etc/X11/xorg.conf looks like this (i have only edited the Modes line)

General :: Force Screen Resolution On CentOS Machine?

Jun 2, 2010

I have CeontOS machines connected to LCD via KVM which causes failure to properly detect screen resolution and I'm stuck with 800x600 until I reset X server with the LCD connected directly to the PC. How can I enforce higher screen resolutions?

EDIT: I followed the advise and left only one resolution in my xorg.conf but it didn't help.

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "Videocard0"
DefaultDepth 16

Hardware :: CentOS 5.2, SIS661FX Screen Resolution?

Apr 9, 2009

OK, I have Googled to the end of the Earth and am starting to got nuts! I cannot seem to get my onboard graphics to display a resolution greater than 800x600. As mentioned in the title, I am using CentOS 5.2 and the graphics chip is a SIS 661FX. I have checked that the latest driver is installed, changed the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file to include:


Now, if I restart the system, on occasion I have seen the correct resolution (1204x768), but if I check in "system, administration, display", I only see 2 options (800x600 and 600x480). The next time I restart it goes back to 800x600.

I should add that I have tried several options for modeline (present and absent) and modes in the xorg.conf. The automatically-generated xorg.conf file (after installation) has detected the "sis" driver.

I use a VMWare ESX Server and installed CentOS.

Even if I configure the VM graphic adapter within the ESX to use 1600x1200.

Is there any change to configure a higher resolution?

CentOS 5 :: Aspire One Screen Resolution Stuck On 800x600?

Mar 31, 2011

I've installed CentOS 5.5 on my Acer Aspire One D150. It uses the Intel integrated graphics chip GM945 which isn't supported "out of the box" by CentOS. My screen resolution has defaulted to 800x600, but it should be 1024x600. tried xrandr, and editing the xorg.conf file, and now have gone down the rabbit hole of trying to install xf86-video-intel and its associated dependencies (nested like Russian matryoshka dolls). I'm at the point of trying to install xorg-server, but am getting hung up by its dependencies on xproto and fontsproto, despite having installed them.

General :: Dell Studio 1535 Screen Resolution - System Won't Get Past The Loading Screen Anymore

Aug 4, 2010

Unfortunately my experience in the Unix* based world up to this point has only been using web servers and administrating them, no GUI experience of any kind so I am completely unfamiliar with the setup and entire usage of Xorg or any other Window manager at this point. The issue I am having is with the screen resolutions I am being allowed to chose for my Dell Studio 1535 running Fedora Core 13 and the KDE 4 desktop GUI, thus my issue since I am not really familiar with how to run a Unix* based GUI in the first place.

The basic information, if there is more needed just advise what and what command gathers that info (or what conf/log I should look into in order to find it). Laptop is a Dell Studio 1535 Video is the Mobile Intel GMA X3100 ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics. LCD interface is the LVDS.

So far it seems to give me modes for 1024x768 and on down, nothing above this. I believe I am supposed to use the radeon driver being that is the type of card it is but every time I change the xorg.conf file to use this instead of vesa the system wont get past the loading screen anymore upon reboot and nor can I seem to find a way to bring up a command line so I can hit up the Xorg.0.log to see what is wrong or change the xorg.conf file back to the original driver it had listed.

I am going to assume this is a missing driver or something else it hangs on but without being able to get access back to the system and having to rebuild it again (re-install via live CD) I am basically out of luck at this time. Sorry for the rather poor post but I do hope to receive some basic directions on where to go from here with this issue

General :: Don't Get Any Higher Screen Resolution Than 640*480

Mar 29, 2010

I'd like a distribution with KDE.

I've tried Kubuntu, but I don't get any higher screen resolution than 640*480. The graphics adapter that seems to get me in trouble is an Intel based one.

I'm open to other OS'es that uses KDE -I just need to be able to use Kdenlive.

General :: Pre X Screen Resolution Gone Wrong

May 2, 2011

I've just upgraded from Debian Lenny to Squeeze. It didn't go as smoothly as I had hoped, one of the casualties being the proprietary nvidia driver I had previously installed. So I fixed that using the 'Debian way' rather than NVIDIA's installer, and that is now all fine. So far so good. However, when I boot up, pre starting X, my screen is a much lower resolution than it used to be (640x480, I think). Really chunky and ugly as it runs through the start up scripts. I assume that somewhere early in the startup scripts the nvidia driver is being loaded and set to a low resolution. Can someone advise me where this might be, and what to look for? Am I on the right track? I stress that this is before X is started. Once X has started the screen resolution is as I want.

General :: Up Screen Resolution Beyond 800 X 600 In Squeeze?

Mar 25, 2011

I just installed 64 bit Debian 6 (Squeeze), and the O/S will not identify my monitor or allow me to set screen resolutions higher than 800 X 600.

I had the same problem in Debian 5, and remedied it by editing the xorg.conf file in the X11 folder in the /etc subdirectory. Worked like a charm.

Debian 6, however, has no such conf. file, and the Debian installation notes at Debian Wiki says Debian no longer uses Xorg as a video driver.

I am, therefore, completely lost.

General :: Set The Resolution Of The Grub Loader Screen?

Jun 15, 2011

On the boot up to the Grub loader screen my monitor (Acer X193w) displays a "screen resolution not supported" message in a floating window, even though the Grub screen itself is displayed. It appears as a flattened rectangle, like wide screen format films on a TV (black bar top and bottom), the floating message on top of it. Once Debian is selected and boots, obviously my xorg.conf takes over and sets the 1440X900 resolution and everything is fine. But the Grub start up bothers me. How do I set the resolution of the Grub loader screen?

General :: Changed Resolution And Now Screen Went Black

Sep 28, 2010

I tried adjusting the resolution in Ubuntu so that it would fit better on my screen. The first one I tried worked ok, but when I tried a higher resolution the screen went black. Now I can't see anything on the screen so I can't change the resolution back to where it was. If I hit esc when booting up, is there anything I can do that will change it back to the default?

General :: Laptop's Screen Resolution Changes After Boot?

Jun 2, 2011

Well, this has happened numerous times before when I had other distros, Ubuntu, Mint,and even Fedora, and then it didn't bother me because I had a GUI and a Desktop Manager, but now it's become a bit of a problem. I can read it okay, but I'd like to have it full resolution again. I'll post a link below


Not easy to see what I typed, but I've tried adding "vga=773" to my kernel line but it didn't help. What do I do? *I hope I'm not being incoherent*
