Ubuntu :: Can't Set Display Resolution 1680x1050?

Jun 9, 2010

I'm running 10.04 desktop on a Dell PowerEdge T710 connected to a Dell 22" LCD (E2210). The T710 uses a Matrox G200eW chipset. For some reason, I can't set the display resolution to the native res of my monitor (1680x1050). For what it's worth, here are the contents of /var/log/Xorg.0.log:

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Set Resolution To 1680x1050

Jan 16, 2011

The native resolution from my LCD monitor is 1680x1050, but the list of "NVIDIA X Server Settings" only allow me to set it to maximum 1360x768. The monitor is conected via VGA cable and it is recognized as CRT-0. When I run the 'xrandr' command from terminal, it shows:

xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 240, current 1024 x 768, maximum 1680 x 1050

Fedora Hardware :: Can't Get 1680x1050 Resolution On F13

May 31, 2010

I performed a clean install of Fedora 13 (LXDE remix) over the weekend, and have been very pleased with it so far. However, I encountered a setback this morning when I brought my laptop into the office and hooked it up to an external Viewsonic VG2030wm LCD monitor. I can no longer utilize the native resolution of 1680x1050, although on F11 I could do so using the commands:

xrandr --output LVDS --off && xrandr --output VGA-0 --mode 1680x1050
The 1680x1050 mode is listed by xrandr (see below). However, when I run the above command the external monitor repeated alternates between a black screen and displaying my desktop (I'm not sure if the resolution is correct -- it's hard to tell).

Ubuntu :: Changing A Display Resolution If You Have A Higher Resolution In 9.1?

Dec 7, 2009

I searched the archives and didn't find anything on this, and was just wondering if there is a problem if you load Ubuntu 9.1 and have a display that's higher than 1024x768. I'd prefer a machine with a higher res, but I've heard that Ubuntu will only go as high as 1024x768.I'm guessing, however, that by 9.1, it should recog the higher res while loading and it won't be a problem, but thought I'd check before shelling out on a machine with a nicer display.

Ubuntu Installation :: X86 64-bit 9.10 Very Low Display Resolution?

Apr 19, 2010

I purchased a lenovo G550 recently and immediately dumped the Windows OS for Ubuntu 9.10. The display is currently defaulting to 1366x768. From reading it looks as though this display can support both 16:9 and 16:10 aspects. I have ran through the xrandr commands attempting to set my resolution to something...anything bigger than 1366x7768 (I'm used to 1600x1200 from my old T61, so this is painfully small). As a test I am trying to get 1920 1200, from my xrandr results it looks like it should be within the lcd's range. xrandr commands failed on me as I have seen on a couple other intel based resolution problems. I don't fully understand the root of the problem and have not had any luck in my searches. So I have also attempted to manually create the xorg.conf file, not luck yet.

Ubuntu :: Get Display At The Native Resolution?

Nov 15, 2010

I have a Dell U2311H monitor which has a native resolution of 1920 x 1080. My graphics card is an ATI 6870.

Last night I installed Ubuntu 10.10 alongside my Windows installation, and when booting into Ubuntu, the maximum resolution I can select is 1280 x 1024.

How can I resolve this to get Ubuntu to display at the native resolution?

Ubuntu Installation :: Won't Display The Proper Resolution

Feb 2, 2010

I installed 9.10 on a computer I'm working on, and right away the graphics went out. It won't display the proper resolution without shoving the display significantly to the left.

After MUCH Googling, I found that this can be fixed by a driver called i915. After much MORE Googling, I found [URL], which as you can imagine filled me with relief.

And THEN I try to follow the instructions and discover to my pure horror that GRUB has been gutted and made unusable in 9.10. GRUB2 just simply does not seem to have an option to insert the i915 driver into my boot command.

should I just forget this unstable release and burn a 9.04 disk instead?

Ubuntu :: Apps Unusable Due To Display Resolution?

Aug 11, 2010

I've just installed BitDefender on my 10.04 netbook, updated and activated it, completed a scan, and found Backdoor.Generic.284566 The thing is, it won't let me delete/quarantine the nasty. BitDefender does give me a warning about my screen resolution being too low (800x600), i believe this may be the problem. The option buttons are not visible on the screen, therefore I cannot use the program properly.(i tried the max resolution 1024x600, but to no avail )

Ubuntu :: Display Out Of Bounds At 1920x1080 Resolution?

Feb 5, 2011

I just put a HTPC together, it's a MSI 890GXM-G65 RT motherboard (on-board video, no video card) connected to a TV (SAMSUNG LED UN40B70) via an HDMI cable. I've put latest Ubuntu Desktop 10.10 on it. Installation went beautifully, the screen placed correctly, However, once it was actually running, the display is totally wrong. Looks like it's too far to the left and up - there's nothing on the screen except for background, at 1920x1080 resolution. Once I change the resolution to lower, it works.

Ubuntu :: Can't Reach 1680x1050 Res

Apr 30, 2010

Intel motherboard DG33TL, chipset G33. I use the on-board graphics. The display is an Fujitsu-Siemens 22" with 1680x1050 res. The latest four versions including 10.04 of Ubuntu selects wrong resolution at boot up, 1024x768. There is no option for higher res. It should be 1680x1050 and I can't change it. Have not found a solution. It works on other quite modern motherboards, but just NOT DG33TL.

Ubuntu Installation :: Monitor Display Resolution 9.10 X86 Xfce4?

Mar 8, 2010

CHECK OUT THIS THREAD INSTEAD: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...93#post8937093 I got a problem with my xorg.conf file. I'm just not able to add display resolutions. I'm running Ubuntu 9.10 x86 with Xfce4 desktop enivorment. I got an old Nvidia 6600 GT. I'm on a 21" IBM CRT, and i know that it's good for 2048x1536 @ 75hz.

I know that it can handle 30-130 khz Horizontal and 40-170 hz Vertical.

I also know that i would like to be able to use 1600x1200 @ 85hz.

Right now I'm just not able to go past 1024x768 @ 50hz. I've installed the restricted nvidia driver from the popup restricted driver menu, also tried to downgrade to an earlier driver, did'nt work, then i upgraded again to the newest driver that was easily available through Envyng-gtk. Still no more resolution choiches.

sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg just don't work. Nothing happens when i write it in the terminal.

Now i'm starting to get frustrated

Ubuntu Servers :: Change The Display Resolution Version 9?

Jun 1, 2010

Would someone please point me in the direction of how to change the display resolution on Ubuntu server version 9? I am talking about the actual VGA port on the back of the server. I am NOT talking about anything related to XWindows or a SSH session. This is a text based display. When I installed Ubuntu Server 9 on my server I picked a larger display resolution than I really want.

Ubuntu :: Wrong Display Resolution Using Panasonic TX-L19X10B

Aug 23, 2011

I installed Ubuntu 11.04 about a week ago and everything has been fine except that Ubuntu thinks my monitor has a resolution of 1024x768, while the actual resolution is 1366x768. I can't set a higher resolution through the visual interface (my monitor is detected as "unknown") Are there commands I can issue through the terminal to sort this out?

Fedora :: 13 - Set Display Resolution 1152x864?

Aug 3, 2010

I use an old notebook 15' LCD, (4:3) with the ridiculous (for fly eyes) resolution of 1400x1050. My eyes are not young anymore. On Ubuntu I could select the resolution of 1152x864 which is fine (1024x768 is too big and really makes me look like a grand-daddy...). How can I set 1152x864 on Fedora 13, if it is possible and how? Recent distribution do not rely on a xorg.conf file anymore. I use an older 9000 Mobility Radeon, and there are no proprietary drivers anymore, but the open source one. I gave it a try. Install the package to create an Xorg default and edited my resolution

# Xorg configuration created by system-config-display
Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Default Layout"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"

I have changed the keyboard option to kill X with <Ctrl><Alt><Backspace> keys. That does not work--yet. No 1152x864 resolution.

Ubuntu Installation :: Display Screen Resolution Settings (Cannot Set To 1200 X 800)

May 4, 2010

I have installed Ubuntu 10.4 on Virtual Box, I have installed it successfully, the only problem is when I check the display settings it only have 2 options : 600 X 400 and 800 X 600 and this makes it difficult to work on Ubuntu as 800 X 600 is half the size of my desktop. How I can increase / configure the display settings so that atleast I can fit ubuntu screen into my screen size.

I did install the addition application, restarted the OS but still I don't see any display resolution 1200 X 800, tried pressing ctrl+D nothing happens, after installing I saw it updated mouse cursor now i don't have to press ctrl key again n again to enter into the ubuntu OS but still struggling with the resolution as it's too small, please guide me (here is the screen shot of my screen after installing the addition app).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Change To Display Resolution In Presentation Mode?

Jun 2, 2010

I am on Lucid 10.04 with Nvidia 9600m (v195.36.24) My TV is 1280x720, my Laptop is 1600x900 (Closest setting to the TV is 1360x768 ). I plug my laptop to my tv via an HDMI cable. I press F1 to get into my presentation mode, and the tv shows most of the desktop, but not all of it. Is there any way to conveniently make it so it automatically sets it to 1280x720?

Ubuntu :: Resolution With Lucid 64 - Display Isn't Quite Filling The Entire Screen

Jul 2, 2010

I have Lucid 64 connected to my 27" TV with 4:3 aspect ratio via s-video from an nVidia NV4 GeForce 6200SE TurboCache 256 MB card using the 173 driver set at 800X600. After hours (don't get on my case, this is the first time I've had hardware that would run well on a TV) and hours of tinkering I've gotten a feel for how to do this and have some pretty good results. However, I have two problems.

.01 The display isn't quite filling the entire screen. It's leaving about a .25 inch black bar all the way around the screen. This is negligible and if I can't fix it with only minor adjustments then so be it. I can live with it.

.02 This one isn't so minor. Many of the Windows are opening with portions of themselves cut off of, usually, the bottom of the screen. This makes, among other things, getting to the Close button rather impossible.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Override Nvidia's Display Resolution Selection

Jul 27, 2010

Recently I encountered a problem with a triple-monitor setup where the EDID was rejected by the nvidia driver (version 195.36.0, claiming that the EDID checksum was invalid. The maximum resolution that the driver would allow was 640x480. Searching through the X logs (/var/log/Xorg.0.log), I found the following message:

(WW) Jul 26 21:37:57 NVIDIA(GPU-0): The EDID read for display device DFP-0 is invalid: the

Debian :: Display Resolution Stuck At 800x600

Recently when I rebooted the display resolution went to 800x600, where as before it was 1024x768. For some reason 1024x768 is no longer listed in (GNOME) System->Preferences->Moniters. Even after reinstalling Debian from scratch it's not there anymore. What can I do to fix this? System->Preferences->Moniters says Moniter: Unknown and stays that way even if I click Detect moniters.

Debian :: How To Set Display Resolution When Xrandr Cannot Work

Sep 19, 2015

I've just completed my first pc build, and installed Ubuntu 8.2. My build was focussed around a legacy Apple Cinema 30" display, which has 2560x1600 @ 60fps resolution. The motherboard - Gigabyte H97N-Wifi - supports that display, although the display drivers are supplied by Intel, and are therefore nonfree. On startup, my display resolution defaults to 1200x800. This is what /var/log/Xorg.0.log says about it:

Code: Select all[snip]
[     1.830] (II) intel(0): Output VGA1 has no monitor section
[     1.881] (II) intel(0): Output HDMI1 has no monitor section
[     1.882] (II) intel(0): Output HDMI2 has no monitor section
[     1.882] (II) intel(0): Output HDMI3 has no monitor section
[     1.933] (II) intel(0): EDID for output VGA1
[     1.986] (II) intel(0): EDID for output HDMI1
[     1.986] (II) intel(0): Manufacturer: APP  Model: 9232  Serial#: 33555281


I bumped into a webpage which stated that xrandr does not work with proprietary drivers, and if that's true, I can't get it to change resolution on my screen.
