You're looking in the right place. Down the bottom of the xorg.conf file are some lines like this:

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Default Screen"
Device "nVidia Corporation NV44 [Quadro NVS 285]"
Monitor "LCD"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Depth 1
Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "832x624" "800x600" "720x400" "640x480"
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Depth 4
Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "832x624" "800x600" "720x400" "640x480"
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Depth 8
Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "832x624" "800x600" "720x400" "640x480"
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Depth 15
Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "832x624" "800x600" "720x400" "640x480"
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Depth 16
Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "832x624" "800x600" "720x400" "640x480"
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Depth 24
Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "832x624" "800x600" "720x400" "640x480"
EndSubSection


While you may have a different entry for the device and monitor, it is reasonable to add some entries in the "modes" lines for other resolutions, like those in the example above. I have had the same problems with RH in the past, and sorted it very successfully with the above fix.

The other thing that is worth doing is going to http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_d...173.14.12.html and getting the driver...generally manufacturer's drivers play well, and are worth trying

Question

thank you the solution you offered is close to what i did

in the mean time i was poking around the commands

and i got through


as root

#system-config-display

now in hardware you have monitor .

now you will see two things

crt and lcd

click on crt and expand you are presented with wide varities of configurations . choose yours and restart x or simply logout...

this way i got through in

after that i checked the /etc/X11/xorg.conf

and it was what jumbo has written here

thank you
raaki

ps can anyone help me with sound iam on acer4520
