General :: Native Monitor Resolution Gone - Where Is The Wrong Info Stored

Mar 2, 2010

On my Acer laptop wit ATI Xpress 1100 I have a native resolution of 1280 x 800, and Linux Mint 8 (of the Ubuntu family) offers that resolution without a problem. However, a few days ago I connected my laptop to my TV, and since then the correct resolution setting has been LOST. It doesn't appear anymore in the Display settings and so I had to choose a lesser resolution - I am now looking at a less sharp screen! How can I delete it? I hope that I don't need to reinstall...

General :: Wrong Monitor Resolution Set And Now Screen With Many Colors

Jul 25, 2010

I am new to Linux (Ubuntu 10.4 LTS on a Thinkpad T40), now just two days, and had everything working nicely. But since I wanted a better higher resolution I tried to set the monitor resolution to a higher value. After selecting a higher resolution first the screen went black and now it has a white background and is steady but has flickering areas. The system is still working. How can I go back to the resolution that was working?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Native LED Monitor Resolution On Intel Arrandale?

May 17, 2010

I can't set up the native resolution for the LED monitor of a Dell Inspiron 1564 laptop with openSUSE 11.2.YaST2 lists correct the graphics adapter as: "Intel Arrandale Integrated Graphics Controller" and the monitor having the resolution: 1366x768 However in /etc/X11/xorg.conf lists only modes with a 1024x768 resolution, which are not really "sharp" on the monitor Besides that it lists the Device as "Vesa-BIOS Graphics". Starting sax2 does not provide me with any option to change these settings (at least not in the graphics mode).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: External Monitor Having Resolution Higher Than Native

Jan 2, 2010

I've got a little problem with my 9" netbook. It came preinstalled with Ubuntu (factory install), but I reinstalled it to get a fresh karmic as it was a second hand.The problem is, whenever I plug in an external monitor, rightclick on the display icon and click "Configure Display Settings..." both monitors go black and nothing responds. Weird thing though, is that sometimes the mouse appears on the second monitor. I need a solution for this, either creating a xorg file (I have no clue on how to do that) or some other solution that works.

My netbook resolution is 1024*600, the external monitor resolution is 1024*768. It should be noted that I had a similar problem on another Ubuntu laptop (NVIDIA drivers), but it had to do with the resolution height. My laptop had 1440*900 and my external monitor needed to have the height lower then 900.
For further information, this is what the system profiler says about my graphics card:Display controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS/GME, 943/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller.I hope you guys can help me, as plugging in a netbook to an external monitor (or TV) is not uncommon to me I like doing that, even if there's no point in it.I hope I gave enough information on this, I'm willing to give more if needed of course

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Graphics Card Not Recognized - Monitor Native Resolution Not Available

May 8, 2011

I actually do have a GeForce4 MX 460 in this pc. I have a 7950gt in a different pc. Oops. I guess the MX 460 cant do 1600x1200 on the dvi output but somehow it can do it on the vga output? I guess I could just use a vga connection instead of the dvi connection.

The problem I'm having is that my LCD monitor (acer AL2021) can't be used at it's native resolution of 1600x1200. This is probably because my GeForce 7950gt graphics card is not being recognized. Xorg seems to think my card is a GeForce4 M 460. (It's not, really!) I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.

Here's what I've been doing for the last few hours:

This didn't work. 1600x1200 is still not listed.

Tried to run nvidia driver installer:

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Xrandr Doesn't Detect External Monitor Native Resolution

Apr 25, 2011

When I'm connecting second monitor to the laptop, Display Settings applet (and xrandr -q) does not detect full list of supported resolutions. I need to restart my system or perform Log off while monitor is connected to make full list available.openSUSE 11.4 32 bit, Ati Mobility Radeon HD 3450, proprietary ATI driver 11.3 8.831.2-110308a-115935C-ATI.External monitor is FullHD SyncMaster B2330 (1920x1080)I wonder is there any other workaround to access full resolution that does not require restarting of the system?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Xorg.conf Setting Up Native Resolution 1900x1200 & Dual Monitor

Jun 19, 2011

my laptop screen has 1900x1280 (native resolution) and my second monitor has 1600x1080

After browsing the forums and messing around with drivers I managed to get the resolution up to 1600x1080 (from 1000x800 at install) on the laptop screen. No luck at all with the second monitor. I currently have it connected with both VGA and DVI.

my understanding is I need to use twin view to setup the second monitor. I've read several of the earlier posts but haven't been able to get it to work. Here is my current xorg.conf file:

Section "Monitor"
# HorizSync source: edid, VertRefresh source: edid
Identifier "Configured Monitor"
VendorName "Unknown"

Ubuntu :: Wrong Monitor Resolution At Bootstrap

Sep 3, 2010

Sometimes, randomly, when turning on my Ubuntu laptop (HP 6730b, Ubuntu 10.04) I get a wrong monitor setting (much lower resolution than normal) and it is not possible to set it correctly because the menu buttons are wrongly placed and some are not present (probably there is not enough room for them) I have no other way than to restart the system to get the right resolution. Can someone tell me this inexplicable (to me) behaviour? Of course I didn't change anything in monitor settings...

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Monitor Not Recognized - Wrong Resolution

Jun 15, 2010

I have problem with resolution (@gnom desktop). In Yast --> videocard & monitor is all right. There is correct resolution 1366x768 (WXGA). Also the videocard ( I don't have really one, only chipset "Intel Mobile GM45" ) is correct recognized. But Monitor isn't recognized, and I don't know which one I have (It's notebook from acer).

Nevertheless if I go direct in monitor preferences (at the bottom the monitor with a ruler symbol) the resolution is set to 800x600 and I can only change to 640x480. The monitor is as 15" recognized (I have 15.4", even a bit more broadly - 1366x768) and now I don't know what to do. All symbols, all programs, everything is huge! How is it possible to configure the correct one resolution?

Ubuntu :: Where Is Printer's Info Stored?

May 30, 2010

Ubuntu 10.04 Gnome.I have a hpDeskjet 940c. It ran great since 8.04 and still works great on 10.04. However, I had to shut down the computer it is on to do some hardware repairs to the powersupply of the computer. So, I moved my printer to another Ubuntu 10.04 machine and discovered I didn't know the settings, such as baud rate, flow control, parity, etc. Ubuntu had never asked me for them....nor was I lucky at guessing them. I then found the hp installer which said it supported my printer and would automatically do the install job, but after trying it, I found it only supported USB and my printer has only a parallel connection.

I then moved the printer to a 9.04 Machine, thinking I only needed to drop back in time, since my printer worked great during that era also, and discovered the same problem! Evidently my printer hasn't been supported for some time! Yet it has happily worked with each new version of Ubuntu.This brought me to the realization there must be a file in my home directory which survives each new full install that I do, and that contains everything my printer needs to be automatically set up, as with each new version of Ubuntu, the wizard has worked great automatically setting it up.Does anyone know the name of that file, so that I can copy it to the new machine?

OpenSUSE Install :: Partition Info Stored In A Log File?

Jul 1, 2011

having repartitioned a disk yesterday but uwisely not obliterating a DOS OEM partition, came down to find the machine had woken up & booted the wrong disk (one I partitioned but without ne OS); with apparently dead (unwilling to seek main drive).

Trouble is the OEM diagnostics was old DOS and likes to **** on other disk partition tables and it seems to have got run, from what was the OEM Windows disk. Now I've fixed that, it seems to be screwed partition table issue.

No problem, it happened before and I recovered with gpart(8) & a spot of tweaking, but due to "redevelopment" I've now got my partition table backups on the disk that's lost. The old backup of them, got tidied. gpart's for once only finding the partitions I don't care about eg) swap & a Windows 7 NTFS backup partition.

Have some logfiles from 11.1 days, which may if it gets recorded somewhere by YaST or other in /var/log actually have the table output. Any one happen to know, where to look as a time saver?

I'd like to get these system partitions back, as I put in bugs on 12.1 M2, as well as an 11.4 and older 11.2 install for comparison. Wasn't planning on re-installing, when I get asked to try something later on.

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.

Ubuntu Installation :: Disc Not Detecting Native Resolution?

Dec 14, 2010

I am planning on installing Ubuntu on my new laptop with a native resolution of 1920x1080 however the install disc (I booted into the "test") part, sets my resolution to 2048x1536.Keeping it on 2048x1536 cuts off about 50 pixels on the right side of my screen so it must not be right. So I tried changing it from the "Monitors" settings back to 1920x1080 and everything is so large and it is stretched horizontally. Is this just because I'm running the "try me" part, or is there something wrong with Ubuntu and my video card?

Component: Standard capacity battery
Component: Inteli7-740QM processor (1.73GHz) with Turbo Boost up to 2.93GHz

Slackware :: Native Resolution Isn't Automatically Applied Anymore

Apr 13, 2011

I use Slackware64 Current and since a few weeks, X doesn't automatically apply the native resolution (1680x1050) of my LCD screen, instead it uses a resolution of 1024x768.Since I bought this monitor in 2009, It had always worked as expected, and it's only since lately that I experienced this problem.After X has started, I can change the resolution through the kde tool but after an X restart everything is forgotten. Apparently, the correct resolution is detected but it is not applied.

My monitor is HDMI1.I don't use a xorg.conf file as it had always worked well this way, so I would like to track down this regression.I have an intel GM45 chipset.I have tried Mesa 7.9 and 7.10 in case.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: 11.4 X64 Black Border Around Screen At Native Resolution?

Jun 21, 2011

I'm setting up a Dell Inspiron One 2305 and I can't get the native monitor resolution to work without black borders. I'm also experiencing blurry text in Firefox (not sure if this is related). At most other resolutions it will expand to the edges of the monitor fully. Note that the desktop area doesn't extend into the border. I tried glxgears and noticed that it was only pulling 60fps -- figuring it needed drivers I installed the latest ATI drivers. On reboot I was given more options for resolutions however the native one still doesn't work properly. I looked around for troubleshooting tips and looked into xrandr output.


Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1680 x 1050, maximum 1920 x 1920
DFP1 connected 1680x1050+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 510mm x 287mm
1920x1080 60.0 + 50.0 30.0 25.0 30.0
1776x1000 50.0 59.9 25.0 30.0


Using 'configure display settings' in Gnome, any time I picked a resolution that was 50, it would cause the borders. Any time I picked a resolution that was 60 AND xrandr listed a 60 and 59.9 and said 60 was the selected one, the borders would come back for those too.

So I tried

xrandr --output DFP1 --mode 1920x1080 --rate 59.9

Seeing as every resolution with 59.9 worked. However... This still resulted in borders.

Fedora :: F14 Dual Monitor - Firefox Starts On Wrong Monitor

On F10 it followed the mouse pointer's location and show up on the correct monitor

When maximized at close, it is always displayed on the left monitor. When not maximized at close it will open on the monitor where the mouse pointer is located.

About minimize/maximize Firefoxe before closing and it seems to work in some case, but not for me.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Make Games In Wine Not Stretch In Non-native Resolution?

Feb 6, 2010

I'm running WoW in Ubuntu 9.10 with wine. My screen's native resolution is 1920x1200. When I play WoW in Windows I set it to 1920x1080 in fullscreen because that aspect ratio allows me to see more of the playing field. In windows it doesn't stretch the screen so I have a black bar at the top and bottom of my screen.

When I set it to 1920x1080 under wine, it stretches my screen. Is there any way I can make it not stretch?

I tried searching forums/google but I couldn't find anything related to my question.

General :: Kernel Mode Setting Sets Wrong Resolution On Console/Intel GL40/several Kernels

Feb 21, 2010

Basically, About 50% of the time, the system boots and sets the console resolution to something strange, and the console renders in a small box in the top-left hand corner of my screen. This causes problems not only with the display of the console, but with the display of X as well.

I have an Intel GL40 chipset on this laptop, with an integrated GMA4500 GPU. I am using the latest stable Intel video drivers (2.10.0-1), and have tried using the git drivers. In addition, the problem has been occuring since December, when I install Arch linux on this machine, I have just now had the time to address it. So basically, the issue has persisted with all driver versions since mid-December to the latest releases.

In addition, I have tried using several kernels, including:

But the problem persists with each.

I wish I could give you relevant diagnostic information for this issue, but if I had any idea where to start...

I will gladly post any information necessary. I was going to post a copy of everything.log for a successful and unsuccesful boot, but unfortunately they put me over the posing limit by about 100,000 characters each.

I guess, on second thought, that my Intel video driver really wouldn't have anything to do with my console, now would they?

General :: Monitor Resolution Was Correct But Not Anymore

Jun 11, 2010

About three weeks ago I bought a new PC and installed Debian Squeeze. I have a Samsung SyncMaster 2494hs monitor connected to it. Until about an hour ago the monitor resolution was 1920x1080 and there were no problems. Anytime I clicked on system -> preferences -> monitors, the monitor preferences displayed the monitor name (Samsung whatever) as well as the resolution (1920x1080). An hour ago I did my normal daily upgrade via synaptic (synaptic -> mark all upgrades -> apply). When the upgrade were finished, the system indicated that a restart was required, so I restarted.

After the reboot, my monitor's resolution is set at 1152x864. System -> preferences -> monitors shows the monitor name as unknown and the max resolution available is 1360x768. Xrandr shows the max available resolution as 1360x1360, which is obviously wrong. According to discover I have an ATI graphics card. I've also run ddcprobebut that outputs about 15 lines and then stops with edidfail. I do not have an xorg.conf on my system or, if I do have one, it is not in /etc/X11.
