newbie-shrunken x screen, cannot fix - mandrake 9.1 - gnome - old nt laptop
stone cold newbie here. i am grateful for any help and will certainly pass it on when i am competent!
i have an old toshiba satellite pro 4600 laptop that had windows nt on it. when logging on you had two choices, one was "regular mode" and one was a "vga mode". at one time i tried vga mode, and the only difference i could suss was that the useable area of the screen was shrunken by about 20%.
after installing mandrake 9.1 i now have the shrunken x screen.
i tried altering a display setting in dos (setup) to no effect.
i tried changing my resolution in my x screen (gnome) to no avail.
i greatly appreciate any suggestions.
