Problem displaying 1024x768 on my laptop


Hiya,

I just managed to get slackware 10.2 running on a portege 3490. However a problem that's really been niggling me is that currently when I run X it only displays at 800x600, using the central part of my screen.

How can I get it to use the whole screen at 1024x768? I've ran xorgconfig and set the display settings to 1024x768 only, but that didn't work. I'm running it at a 16 bit colour depth so memory shouldn't be an issue.

Cheers,
Just some guy.

Check /etc/X11/xorg.conf
This is all you need in the Screen Section.
Your Identifier, Device, Monitor may be different.
You could post this part of xorg.conf
Code:
    Section "Screen"
    Identifier     "Screen0"
    Device         "Card0"
    Monitor        "Monitor0"
    DefaultDepth    16
      SubSection     "Display"
        Viewport    0 0
        Depth       16
        Modes      "1024x768"
    EndSubSection
EndSection

    EndSubSection
EndSection
Hi, I have exactly that except for two other display subsettings at the same resolution for 8 and 16 bit colour depths
