Question Different screen resolutions in X


When I log into Debian my login screen has a diff resolution to the screen I use once logged in.
The login screens running at 1600x1200 H91.0khz V73.0hz and the screen once logged in jumps to 1280x1024 H64.5khz V61.3hz

Here's my x.org.conf:

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "XFree86 Configured"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
InputDevice "PS/2 Mouse" "CorePointer"

EndSection

Thumbs up

For anybody who cares:

I changed these two lines:

HorizSync 30.0-95.0
VertRefresh 50.0-160.0

to:

HorizSync 30.0-81.0
VertRefresh 43.0-76.0

and

these lines:

Depth 16
Modes "1920x1200""1400x1050""1280x1024""1024x768""800x600"

to:

Depth 16
Modes "1280x1024""1024x768""800x600"
