How to configure xorg.conf


Hi,
I am using kubutu and my computer is using vishal-laptop 2.6.28-11-generic #42-Ubuntu SMP Fri Apr 17 01:57:59 UTC 2009 i686 GNU/Linux


I am able to change the display resolution in kubuntu but when I change from 1240x768 to 1024x768 then the resolution does change but the new resolution does not occupy the full screen it leaves two emtpy spaces one on the left and the other on the right.
Please see below pastebin for the image.

I am using an intel graphics card
product: Mobile 945GM/GMS/GME, 943/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:27A6]
vendor: Intel Corporation [8086]
bus info: pci@0000:00:02.1
version: 03
width: 32 bits.

I then tried open suse linux and tried the resolution 1024x768 and it took up the full screen to my delight but I want to use kubuntu and not suse I tried to study the xorg.conf file from the suse distro but I could not figure out what I can change to get the same desired effect on Kubuntu. Please see the xorg.conf files below. I will appreciate it if someone can help me out here and tell me how I can configure xorg.conf so that I can use 1024x768.

You could always try "X -configure" and use the generate xorg.conf.
Or try to run without any xorg.conf

Let me know if that works.

Try using the "Monitor" and "Modes" sections from the SuSE xorg.conf.

Code:
Section "Monitor"
 HorizSync    31-60
 Identifier   "Monitor[0]"
 ModelName    "1024X768@60HZ"
 Option       "DPMS"
 Option       "PreferredMode" "1024x768"
 VendorName   "--> LCD"
 VertRefresh  30-60
 UseModes     "Modes[0]"
EndSection
 
 
Section "Modes"
 Identifier   "Modes[0]"
 Modeline      "1024x768" 65.0 1024 1048 1184 1344 768 771 777 806 -hsync -vsync
 Modeline      "1024x768" 64.11 1024 1080 1184 1344 768 769 772 795
 Modeline      "1024x768" 55.00 1024 1072 1104 1184 768 771 775 790 +HSync -Vsync
EndSection
