Can't get resolution any higher


On Windows, and even back on Slackware 9.1, I am able to get 1600x1200 resolution. (19" Monitor) I just installed Debian, and now the highest I can get is 1400x1050. I posted this in the Debian forums last night, but thought this might get me more and faster responses.

My kernal is 2.4.25. And my Video Card is a Radeon 7200.

These might help....




Code:

# Any number of screen sections may be present.  Each describes
# the configuration of a single screen.  A single specific screen section
# may be specified from the X server command line with the "-screen"
# option.
Section "Screen"
    Identifier  "Screen 1"
    Device      "** ATI Radeon (generic)               [radeon]"
    Monitor     "My Monitor"

Are you sure you have the right hsync/vsync settings for you monitor? You have errors telling you that your hsync is out of range.

I suggest you check in your monitor manual to be sure you have the correct configuration

Believe me I've checked many times. It's the same I used in Slackware. I manually put those numbers in.

Edit: I'm a jackass. When I was getting ready to install Debian, I wrote down the numbers I needed to configure xfree, and I wrote down 30-70 instead of 30-85. Not quite sure how I confused 85 for 70. I got it to go to 1600x1200.
