F7 Dell D610 Video Config Problems


I installed Fedora7 and can't get the system to recognize the resolution 1400x1050. I have installed 915resolution and have tried pretty much everything I could find via google. Any help would be greatly appreciated. So far I love Linux but if I can't get the resolution increased I may go back to windows. I am very new to Linux so that being said please step me through any trouble shooting tips.

Here is my settings.

914resolution
# Mode to overwrite
RESOLUTION="3c 1400 1050"

xorg.conf

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "14inch TFT"
DisplaySize 285 216
Option "DPMS"
ModeLine "1400x1050_60.00" 122.6 1400 1488 1640 1880 1050 1051 1054 1087 -hsync +vsync
EndSection

Section "Device"
Identifier "Intel i915"
Driver "i810"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Laptop Screen"
Device "Intel i915"
Monitor "14inch TFT"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Depth 1
Modes "1400x1050" "1024x768"
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Depth 4
Modes "1400x1050" "1024x768"
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"

EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"

EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"

Modes "1400x1050" "1024x768"
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"

Modes "1400x1050" "1024x768"
EndSubSection

Here's a thought; since you want to target 1400x1050 why don't you strip out the non-essential entries for 1024x768?

Make a backup copy of your xorg.conf and then pare down your Screen section to something like:

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Laptop Screen"
Device "Intel i915"
Monitor "14inch TFT"
DefaultDepth 16
SubSection "Display"
Depth 16
Modes "1400x1050"
EndSubSection

Then there's no question what resolution your X session grabs.
