did 'xorgsetup' not detect the right settings, or are you creating the file manually?

Hmm... the screen stretches horizontally. During X windows loading, the mouse is located at right side of the screen, as shown, and the resolution is around 800x600.

I have tried ways such as
"915resolution -l 3c 1400 1050", or "X -configure", and even configure the settings via 'diplay' wizard in X windows. Settings I have are

I don't see the section where you set the resolution. What happened to

Code:
Section "Screen"
  Identifier "Screen0"
  Device     "Card0"
  Monitor    "Monitor0"
  DefaultDepth 24

  SubSection "Display"
    Viewport   0 0
    Depth     24
    Modes "1024x768"       <--- set the apropriate resolution here
  EndSubSection
EndSection

May I point out that your default depth is 24, and that your resolution options for this depth is 800x600 and 640x480 ...could be the source of the problem.

Okay, maybe I wasn't clear enough. Use your previous working xorg.conf file, or just make a new one by running 'xorgsetup' then edit it as so:

Code:
Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "Videocard0"
Monitor "Monitor0"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 16
Modes "1600x1200" "1400x1050" "1280x1024" "1280x960" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 24
Modes "1600x1200" "1400x1050" "1280x1024" "1280x960" "1024x768" "800x600" 
EndSubSection
EndSection

hey drkstr, thanks for your prompt reply. I followed exactly as ur settings, but the screen is still stretching horizontally... may i know wat's the HorizSync and VertRefresh should be?

When i startx with 1600x1200 like this -->
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 24
Modes "1600x1200" "1400x1050" "1280x1024" "1280x960" "1024x768" "800x600"
EndSubSection
EndSection

The X windows display is jerky, as if some magnet is pulling the display... Then I change to 1024x768, like this --->
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 24
Modes "1024x768" "800x600"
EndSubSection
EndSection

the display is not jerky anymore, but the mouse pointer is still at the right side ( shown in X) and icons are BIG and ugly...

1024x768 is not the resolution you want. This is the resolution for regular size monitors, you have a widescreen monitor correct? And yes, sorry I forgot about the horiz/vert sync. You will need to look in the user manual for your monitor to get the correct settings. After setting the correct sync in your xorg.conf, play around with different resolutions until you get the setting you like. You will need to use the "widescreen modes" or you will experience streaching.

regards,
...drkstr
