Low resolution on external laptop monitor
 
I'm am running Suse 10.1 (with ATI Radeon driver with Acer AL1914 monitor). No matter what resolution setting I configure using YAST the external monitor displays the same resolution as the laptop's top internal LCD screen - 1024x768.

Would appreciate being walked-thru the sets needed (I assume editing xorg.cong) to allow the external to reach higher resolution levels.


Thanks,

Chris.

do you have the monitor specs? did you just purchase it? when i first purchased a widescreen 19 in monitor (i didn't know what i was getting into) the max res ended up being 1440x900, my laptop can go alot higher than that.

I have the same problem. The external monitor can definately go higher.
Also, how do I send the video output to just the external monitor - like if I'm doing a presentation ? The Fn+LCD keyboard button does not work under linux (redhat fedora )
