how to get 1400x1050 on suse 10.1


Hi,
I am using SUSE LINUX 10.1 on home computer. I recently bought 20" viewsonic lcd and its native resolution is 1400x1050 @60HZ.
Even though i change it in the Yast control panel. It does not work. It still shows 1280x1024.
How can i make it work at 1400x1050@60hz.
your help is greatly appreciated.

Look at your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file. Find the section that lists all of the resolutions for the monitor. It should look something like this:

Code:
Section "Screen"
	Identifier	"Default Screen"
	Device		"ATI Radeon 1600 PRO"
	Monitor		"BenQ FP91G+"
	DefaultDepth	24
	SubSection "Display"
		Depth		1
		Modes		"1280x1024" "1280x960" "1280x854" "1280x800" "1280x768" "1200x800" "1152x864" "1152x768" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
	EndSubSection
	SubSection "Display"
		Depth		4
		Modes		"1280x1024" "1280x960" "1280x854" "1280x800" "1280x768" "1200x800" "1152x864" "1152x768" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
	EndSubSection
	SubSection "Display"

		Modes		"1280x1024" "1280x960" "1280x854" "1280x800" "1280x768" "1200x800" "1152x864" "1152x768" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
	EndSubSection
	SubSection "Display"

	EndSubSection
	SubSection "Display"

		Modes		"1280x1024" "1280x960" "1280x854" "1280x800" "1280x768" "1200x800" "1152x864" "1152x768" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"

	EndSubSection
EndSection
Add your resolution to the end or beginning of the line which you are using (or all of the lines if you are not sure). Then, restart X (Ctrl+Alt+Backspace). Now try selecting your resolution in the yast control panel again.

I'm not sure that this will work, but I cannot suggest anything else.
