OpenSUSE Hardware :: Monitor - Resolution Of The Kde Desktop Is Always The 1024x768

Jun 15, 2010

The monitor is a dell 2009 w (16:10 with around 1680x1050 IIRC) I have a fujitsu desktop with the intel core i5 CPU. the crux is the i5 has an integrated GPU. hwinfo says 'clarkdale integrated graphics controller' and yast tells me the same too, knowing the monitor model as well (with correct resolution) So we have an intel GPU ... but the resolution of the kde desktop is always the 1024x768. sax2 do not accept any other resolutions - he knows only threee, one larger at 1280x1024. But even if i try to turn it on he falls back to 1024x768. this is independed from runlevel 3 or 5. the /etx/X11/xorg.conf knows the monitor and the two modes 1024 and 1680 - but everyhwere else it seems that it is unknown, using default vesa mode... the gfx tools seem to ignore the ability of the higher resolution.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: 11.2 Nvidia Video - Cannot Get Anything Besides 1024x768 Or 800x600 Resolution

Jan 16, 2010

I'm having a real fight with an Nvidia 6100 video under 11.2. I cannot get anything besides 1024x768 or 800x600 resolution with any technique besides doing an upgrade installation over an existing 11.1 system. I want 1440x900 for this wide screen LCD and that works with the upgrade install but that gets me into other problems with versions and other stuff - not a desireable choice.

OK. I know that the Nvidia driver (190.53) works as all is well under the upgrade. When I do a totally clean installation or a clean install with the existing /home I get a default 1024x768. If I use sax2 to try and change it one of two things happens: the change is ignored or I drop to 800x600 and the ball game is over: I'm stuck there, period. Other than a couple of commented-out lines, xorg.conf is the same as it was or 11.1 (and back to 10.1 after allowing for version changes) after running sax2 but even nvidia-settings won't give anything beyond 1024x768 if I try and use that.

I've been through the how-to stuff and back messages here but I'll be darned if I can force the desired 1440x900. I had a similar issue with 10.2 or so where the only way to get it right the first time was to set the desired resolution to 1440x900 during the hardware setup during the installation but that seems to have disappeared along with xorg.conf which only appears after running sax2. I can't even use the manual diting tricks in xorg.conf I've had to use with some cards - it seems to be completely ignored and I can't see any real problem with it anyway once sax2 builds it. On a couple of machines with later version of the Nvidia video everything is working as expected, at least with GF 6800 and higher video.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Screen Settings Does Not Appear A Resolution Higher Than 1024x768

Apr 6, 2011

Recently I have acquired 2-port KVM switch. When the monitor is connected through this KVM in Windows 7 resolution is properly detected - 1280x1024. When I go under Linux (openSUSE 11.4 with KDE, nVidia 260.19.44) there is a problem with the resolution. In the screen settings does not appear a resolution higher than 1024x768. How do I set the desired resolution in Linux?

OpenSUSE :: Can't Change The Resolution Beyond 1024x768 On Dell Latitude D600 Running 11.2

Feb 25, 2010

I can't change the resolution beyond 1024x768 on my Dell Latitude D600 running 11.2. It's got a Radeon Mobility 9000. The only fixes I've seen involve the Intel 915 chipset not this one. I've changed it in sax but even though it says it should be 1400x1050 it remains at 1024x768.

Slackware :: 13.1 : Resolution Limited To 1024x768?

Jun 4, 2010

Can't make Slack 13.1 to run at more than 1024x768. No problems where with 12.0-13.0. Here are portions of my xorg.conf and Xorg.0.log:


Section "Monitor"
HorizSync 31 - 81
VertRefresh 56 - 75
Section "Device"


Note the last line marked (**) - "from config file", but I only have 1280x1024 there ! And what does that mean

(II) NV(0): Using fuzzy aspect match for initial modes
(II) NV(0): Output VGA2 using initial mode 1024x768
(--) NV(0): Virtual size is 1024x1024 (pitch 1024)

And KDE/Display only offers up to 1024x768 too. Didn't try NVIDIA driver yet but 13.0 had no problems with the same monitor,similar Card and nv driver.

Debian :: Can't Get Higher Resolution Than 1024x768 (NVIDIA)

Aug 26, 2015

I installed Debian 8 Jessie with the GNOME 3 desktop environment and I couldn't get pass the login screen after several reboots. Since I read that NVIDIA graphics are problematic, I decided to reinstall the system but selected Mate desktop, which appears to be less graphic intensive than GNOME 3. It worked. However, I can't get a higher resolution than 1024x768 (In Windows I could). The Mate settings in the "System → Preferences → Monitors" does not show higher resolutions.

The information of the graphics card is this:

Code: Select all00:0d.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: NVIDIA Corporation C61 [GeForce 6150SE nForce 430] [10de:03d0] (rev a2)

Before I try to install proprietary drivers as instructed in [URL] ...., I'd like to see if there's anything to try first with the default stuff installed by the system, because that page says:

As of jessie, the need for the proprietary drivers is pretty much over - nouveau now works quite well and works with dual-headed displays by simple and easy configuring from within your desktop(for KDE see System_Settings/Hardware/Display_and_Monitor/Display_Configuration) . The proprietary drivers don't provide normal logging and can be a hidden source of problems.

Fedora Hardware :: Can't Set The Resolution Higher Than 1024x768

Dec 27, 2010

My graphics card just died so I bought a Radeon HD 4350. My monitor is an Acer AL1916W whose default resolution is 1440x900. So I reinstalled Fedora 14 with KDE but I can't set the resolution higher than 1024x768 because that is the highest available.

[corneliu@localhost ~]$ lspci
00:00.0 Host bridge: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon Xpress 200 Host Bridge (rev 01)
00:02.0 PCI bridge: ATI Technologies Inc RS480 PCI-X Root Port
00:11.0 IDE interface: ATI Technologies Inc IXP SB400 Serial ATA Controller (rev 80)


I rebooted but still no dice. I saw a video on ..... using a graphical tool to modify the monitor settings but it seemed to be a Gtk application and I rather not use Gnome applications in KDE (not that I don't like Gnome, but I don't like to mix applications).

Ubuntu Installation :: Change Resolution To 1024x768?

Aug 12, 2010

I'm trying to use the Xubuntu-based BitDefender Rescue Disk, and having an issue. Posting in their forum didn't return anything, so I figured I should ask here next.

Using the default settings, the Rescue Disk starts in 800x600 and complains that the resolution is too low to run the app in graphic mode.

FYI, this servers + monitor run Windows just fine in 1024x768 @ 75Hz, and even higher.

I tried adding "screen=1024x768" to the command-line, to no avail.

FWIW, the default includes "vga=791" but I don't know what it means.

If someone had the same issue, how can I set the resolution to something higher so I can run BitDefender in graphic mode?

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Can't Change Video Resolution To 1024x768?

I can only choose between 800x600, 640x480,400x300... not 1024x768 for example.No restricted or proprietary drivers...I used Knoppix 5.1.1 Live CD and it automatically set the resolution to 1024x768.I also used Puppy linux 5.1 Live CD and it had a configuration program which also utilised 1024x768.If these versions of linux can utilise the 1024x768 resolution, why can't Ubuntu 10.04

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Will No Longer Start With 1024x768 Resolution

Dec 1, 2010

after the latest kernel update (2.6.32-26), my computer will no longer start up with a screen resolution higher than 800x600. Before this update, my computer would sometimes startup with this problem, but this could usually be fixed with a restart (or two if necessary). At this resolution the panels and a lot of tool-bars will not display properly, so I am limited as to what I can do using the GUI. my video card is an S3 unichrome (I think. It is built-in to the motherboard so I don't know for certain) my screen is an old ctr one I am running Ubuntu 10.04 on the 2.6.32-26 kernel.

Hardware :: Fedora 14 Max Resolution - Cannot Get Past 1024x768

Apr 16, 2011

I've just installed Fedora 14. When i try to change the resolution i cannot get past 1024x768. My graphics card is the onboard Intel g41 express chipset which is - for sure -capable of bringing a higher resolution than this. I googled on this and found that i have to edit the xorg.conf file to add the required resolution mode with no luck. Moreover, I learned that Fedora has dropped the xorg.conf usage since the 10th release, which further implies that there should be a more elegant solution than editing this file. Is is a drivers problem? i searched for a linux drivers for this card with no luck.

General :: Resolution Will Never Stretch Past 1024x768

Jul 7, 2011

So I have a resolution problem. Before posting here, I've checked many MANY forums for similar issues, handpicking certain techniques and trying each. Sometimes they worked, and then my problem came back.

Distro: Fedora 14
Monitor: emachines 18.5" E181HV
GPU: Nvidia GeForce 8800GT
resolution: 1360x768

My problem is that the resolution will never stretch past 1024x768. I have the image of my desktop in the middle part of the screen, with black sections on either side. Here is a list of things that I've already done or tried:

Install Nvidia drivers
disable Nouveau via grub.conf
use xrandr to modify xorg.conf and add the resolution
different cable
different DVI converter

One day, I logged into my Fedora boot, and after a week of frustration, the issue decided to fix itself. So I continued on, using Fedora and planning on a permanent switch from Windows. I log back over to Windows to play some games and whatnot (I'm not a fan of how Wine handles some games). I then log back to Fedora, and the issue is back. The resolution is messed up again.I've since removed that partition from my drive, as I've reached my wits end with troubleshooting. My linux expert friend tells me it may be that my monitor is just not good enough, or is not sending/receiving the proper EID signature, thus will not accept the resolution, or something along those lines.

Debian Configuration :: Nouveau: Resolution Re-ducted To 1024x768?

Oct 28, 2010

Motherboard: M2N-MX with Athlon X2 3600 from 2006 onwards
00:0d.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation C61 [GeForce 6150SE nForce 430] (rev a2)
Kernel: Debian Sid with 2.6.32-5-amd64 and custom 2.6.36-rc7
Monitor: Samsung 712N, 17inch, with native 1280x1024 resolution

Everything was fine with both kernels with custom 1280x1024 resolution upto yesterday. But when I rebooted today, first I noticed that X stopped working. After updating xorg.conf to 1024x768, it started working . After going through the kernel log in /var/log/messages, I noticed the following differences

Yesterdays log:

nouveau 0000:00:0d.0: Detected 64MiB VRAM
nouveau 0000:00:0d.0: 64 MiB GART (aperture)
nouveau 0000:00:0d.0: Saving VGA fonts


There is an extra "Load detected" line and the resolution got reduced from 1280x1024 to 1024x768.

Debian Multimedia :: Distorted Resolution - Only Running At 1024x768 ?

Oct 1, 2010

I recently installed Debian 5.0 (Lenny) on a Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop. I have been banging my head trying to figure out why my laptop display (15.6" optimum resolution 1366x768) is only running at 1024x768. This was not a problem in Ubuntu even as far back as 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex) which came pre-installed.

I am running kernel 2.6.32 (from Backports) to get WiFi to work and it still hasn't remedied the video oddities.

How do I either:

1) Letterbox the 1024x768 so that it isn't distorted?

or, more preferably,

2) Display in the full 1366x768?

My video card is:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 07)

I also have the xserver-xorg-video-intel driver from the stable repositories installed.
