I tried to use an HP flat screen with my laptop and got errors about it 'not being able to open display 1' or 'resolution not set - could not open' on top of a slew of other errors along these lines, in the end I turned to google for help ... and found a tutorial to set up a config for xrandr
before trying to use the monitor. in the beginning I only had one problem: It would only let me do a max of 640X480 resolution (which made the desktop hard to navigate) but once I opened Administration->Monitors I had the 1024 option ... I've been looking for the tutorial I used but can't find it ... I will return with a link once I find it.
edit: I think I found it ... I am pretty sure this is it: http://www.zoinks.org/home/technolog...ntel-gma-x3100
If something from there doesn't come out right, I can't really help (That's why I need a tutorial in the first place haha
) but it did work for me, and hopefully can work for you to. Good luck.
