is another file for display instead of xorg.conf

is xorg.conf responsible for measuring the complete behaviour of screen at boot time, if any other file then which. My default depth 24 & mode 1024*768. when i boot system sometime desktop screen doesn't fit into moniter space area therfore see all desktop by mouse move up & down, left & right . My xorg.conf is

# Xorg configuration created by system-config-display

# To customise the XKB settings to suit your keyboard, modify the

# keyboard, you will probably want to use:
# Option "XkbModel" "pc102"
# If you have a US Microsoft Natural keyboard, you can use:
# Option "XkbModel" "microsoft"
# Then to change the language, change the Layout setting.
# For example, a german layout can be obtained with:
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# or:
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# Option "XkbVariant" "nodeadkeys"
# If you'd like to switch the positions of your capslock and

your xorg.conf looks fine to me, so I'm not sure why you're getting this behaviour.

One thing you can do is add
xrandr -s 1024x768
to your desktop's startup programs, which will set the display resolution to 1024x768 everytime your desktop (be it KDE/Gnome/XFCE/etc) starts.

Every once in a while I find a game that changes the screen resolution and doesn't change it back on exit, leaving me with the behaviour you described. Is it possible something else is running that would mess up your resolution?

VertRefresh 50.0 - 90.0


VertRefresh 60.0

That'll fix it (probably)

Hi hollywoodb i doning this behaviour due display error comes in desktop, when display mode select 85 refresh rate automatically after boot then desktop doesn't fit into moniter area after then i can't perform any work & my job hampered. by default my option is 1024*768 at 60 hz but it select sometimes 1024*768 at 85 hz. in diaplay dialoug refresh rate show only one option either 85 or 60 hz then how will change . no any option at that time except reboot & wait util it trues(e.g. select default mode).
