can you please post your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file, i just want to see which driver is xorg using for your video card, i think is using vesa.
I found out the Horizontal and vertical refres rates for your monitor
Horizontal: 31-65

Vertical:55-120

the max resolution your monitor supports is : 1280x1024@55-60Hz
other resolutions it supports are: 1024x768 @ 55-80 Hz, 800x600 @ 55-100Hz, 640x480 @ 55-100Hz

Plz post your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file. I'll probably check back with you tomorrow coz is really late right now.

# NOTE: This is a NEW IMPROVED version of XF86Config-fbdev that uses the vesa

# This XF86Config file is designed for use with the VESA framebuffer.
# This generic interface should work with nearly all video cards
# (although not every card will support every resolution).

# With the new driver, it should no longer be required to have frame buffer
# support in the kernel, or to run it on the console.

# provide a better stack trace in the core dump to aid in debugging

# Option "NoTrapSignals"

# Uncomment this to disable the <Crtl><Alt><Fn> VT switch sequence
# (where n is 1 through 12). This allows clients to receive these key
# events.

# Option "DontVTSwitch"

# Uncomment this to disable the <Crtl><Alt><BS> server abort sequence
# This allows clients to receive this key event.

# Option "DontZap"

# Uncomment this to disable the <Crtl><Alt><KP_+>/<KP_-> mode switching
# sequences. This allows clients to receive these key events.

# Option "DontZoom"

# Uncomment this to disable tuning with the xvidtune client. With
# it the client can still run and fetch card and monitor attributes,
# but it will not be allowed to change them. If it tries it will
# receive a protocol error.

# Option "DisableVidModeExtension"

# Uncomment this to enable the use of a non-local xvidtune client.

# Option "AllowNonLocalXvidtune"

# Uncomment this to disable dynamically modifying the input device
# (mouse and keyboard) settings.

# Option "DisableModInDev"

# Uncomment this to enable the use of a non-local client to
# change the keyboard or mouse settings (currently only xset).

# Option "AllowNonLocalModInDev"

# Set the basic blanking screen saver timeout.

# Option "blank time" "10" # 10 minutes

# Set the DPMS timeouts. These are set here because they are global
# rather than screen-specific. These settings alone don't enable DPMS.
# It is enabled per-screen (or per-monitor), and even then only when
# the driver supports it.

# Option "standby time" "20"
# Option "suspend time" "30"
# Option "off time" "60"

# On some platform the server needs to estimate the sizes of PCI
# memory and pio ranges. This is done by assuming that PCI ranges
# don't overlap. Some broken BIOSes tend to set ranges of inactive
# devices wrong. Here one can adjust how aggressive the assumptions
# should be. Default is 0.

Type in at a shell

xrandr

what resolution does it have an asterisk next to? Plus, what resolution are you shooting for? You wrote 1024 x 1028, but that would be a weird square shape. Do you mean 1280 x 1024 or 1024 x 768?

Yea, I ment 1280x1024, whoops. And xrandr has a * by 1024x768., and it doesnt list anything higher than that.

Ok, as root perform these steps

copy /etc/X11/xorg.conf to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.old

then edit

/etc/X11/xorg.conf

Find the lines that say

Depth 24
Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"

And change it to say

Depth 24
Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"

Then restart your X server, or just reboot. Hopefully that'll do ya.

Well, im in mandrake right now, and when i first installed it on my PC i had to run xf86cfg, BUT.. when i had Slack installed its different, if i remember correctly (this was like a day or two ago) im pretty sure the command in the konsole to do the wizzard was "xorgconfig" try that, make sure you dont include the quotes and that you are logged in as root. to log in as root type "su" then type your password. make sure you pick the correct monitor (that matters alot more then video card, dont get me wrong video card is important) try that and let us know.

im kind of a newb myself, but i come here to learn, and so does everyone else!!
