Re: [vox-tech] monitor troubles

Yes it is an LCD monitor. I tried running xvidtune and got the message "Video are not settable on this chip". If I check the control center, it says that the screen size is 640x480 and has no other options for it. How else can I up the resolution?

Is this an LCD monitor? You probably have to up the resolution. What's
the current resolution on it? You can run `xvidtune` to figure that out
(check the "HDisplay" and "VDisplay" settings.)

I just installed linux on a desktop and am having trouble getting
the monitor to work. It is a 12"x9" (15" diagonal) flat panel monitor
that works fine in WindowsXP. However when I boot into linux and start
kde, I only get a 7.5"x5.5" window in the center with the xsession and
the rest of the screen is a silver color. Any ideas on how to fix this?
