Probably your video BIOS do not offer the resolution you want. Download
Use it to list the video modes offered by your video BIOS. If the resolution
you want is not listed, use the software to replace an unused mode with the
one you want.
After that you'll probably need to edit xorg.conf manually to add the
resolution you want to your screen configuration.
Aha! Don't you love forums :D
Ok, so I did the little bios hack then generated the modeline from the
logs as instructed in this very handy page :
My logs for the 2007WFP showed :
(II) I810(0): clock: 146.2 MHz Image Size: 434 x 270 mm
(II) I810(0): h_active: 1680 h_sync: 1784 h_sync_end 1960 h_blank_end
2240 h_border: 0
(II) I810(0): v_active: 1050 v_sync: 1053 v_sync_end 1059 v_blanking:
1089 v_border: 0
And so my resulting modeline is :
ModeLine "1680x1050" 146.2 1680 1784 1960 2240 1050 1053 1059 1089
Now I have _almost_ the right result, it looks ok, width is find, but
the bottom gnome panel is missing from the screen and the fonts look
like it's not running in native resolution..
Funny thing is the monitor display menu says the resolution is 1280x1024
@ 64 but there is no panning around the screen and both gnome and X
Might just go buy a real video card as this damn integrated intel didn't
come with DVI, anybody know why on earth some computers still ship with
either Analog or floppy disks?
