can't get screen resolution to 1024x768


ok So i'va installed sarge, and now all I really want is to get my screen resolution to 1024x768
I have a 64MBDDRNVIDIA gefore4MX420 video card and a dell 15""1503FP LCD monitor

i chose nv for the driver during the install and couldn't get more than 800x600, so i installed the latest nvidia drivers and still can't get to 1024x768

here is part of my XF86config-4:

thanks in advance

Try using the recommended HorizSync and VertRefresh values for your monitor:

Don't know if this has anything to do with your problem but... check the following couple of points: (These helped me out with Nvidia driver probs)

1) Try adding to the "Device" section of your XFree86-Config-4 the following:
Option "NvAGP" "1"

2) Ensure that under the "Module" section of your XFree86-Config-4 you have removed the line (initially written by default for the nv driver):
Load "dri"

and replace it with:
Load "glx"

Additionally (I'm unsure how much difference this would make) I noticed in your pasted XFree86-Config-4 that your default depth is set to 24, and the subsection for that depth is shown as follows (missing a line break after the section title):

SubSection "Display"Depth 24
Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection

Perhaps the line break just got missed out during the paste into this site. But something to check.

Try:

Ctrl Alt+

Press the keys ctrl and alt and hit the +
key, to increase the resolution. Use the + key in the numpad to the right of the keyboard.

sorry, I forgot to mention that I had already tried the control alt + or - options, and even modifying the XF86config-4 file to display only 1024x768, but it just creates a virtual screen.

and that i had already tried modifying the vertrefresh and the horizsyn values.

as for the load "glx" i checked the XF86Config-4 file and that line is there.
oh and the mising space is just a pasting mistake, it is not like that on the file.

I even see the NVIDIA logo when I reboot, so i dont think it is a problem with the driver loading, it must be some configuration problem.

any other ideas?

i don't own a laptop so i don't know what should go there. Maybe somebody with a lappy can help.

I really think you should use the "HorizSync 31-60" and "VertRefresh 60-75" values, because those are recommended by the manufacturer of the monitor (and they should know ).

Other things you can try:

-- remove the "800x600" and "640x480" entries altogether from XF86Config-4 and see if X starts without them.

-- try setting the "DefaultDepth" value to 16 instead of 24.

thanks for the help guys, i tried changing the vertresfresh and horizsyn values, but it made no difference.

all the other suggestions I have already tried a while ago, even changing default depth to 16, that didnt make a difference either, and really it shouldnt as my card should support 1024x768 at24 and32.

oh, and I am not using a laptop, it is just a flat panel.

Just out of curiosity, have you ever tried Knoppix in your computer? Knoppix has great auto-detection and auto-configuration features. Although Knoppix can be troublesome when used as a Debian installer, it's good to have around as a configuration tool and a rescue disk.

Try decreasing your refresh rate until you get 1024x768 resolution.
I do not think it has something to do with your graphic card, but it is possible that your flat panel screen is causing the problem.

nope I've never tried knoppix, might try and give it a go.
But i agree with eaglegst i think its a problem with the flat panel, although ive tried decreasing refresh rates and still no 1024x768.. I am going to go crazy i think i must have tried everything by now. i am so tired of this 600x800 resolution. and I am definitely sure that i can do 1024x768 with this screen and card, ive got winxp installed on the same machine and it does it.

i think its things like this that should be so simple but yet you can spend hours on them that put people off from using debian/linux

thanks for the help

I agree that it sucks when you're stuck with 800x600 display on hardware that should easily do 1024x768. However, I'm not at all sure that this is a Debian specific problem. The only system component that is not quite up-to-date in Debian is XFree86.

Your XFree86.0.log tells that X accepts your video chipset and finds the appropriate module for it. Also the amount of VideoRAM (65536 kBytes) that is allocated seems OK. There are lots of lines telling that hsync and vrefresh are out of range, which suggests that you need to adjust HorizSync and VertRefresh. But you have already tried the manufacturer's recommended settings and deviating too much from them might damage your monitor.

The only advice that comes to my mind at this time is to check out if WinXP uses different refresh rates (since you tell that in WinXP 1024x768 works fine) and to try if Knoppix can configure your monitor to show 1024x768. If you can do it in Knoppix, you can also do it in Debian.

ok, i've tried knoppix... very cool.
but still can'te get to the resoultion i want,

i guess it detects the right stuff, this is part of the XF86config-4 file

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Monitor0"
Option "DPMS" "true"
VendorName "DEL"
ModelName "DEL7006"
HorizSync 30 - 61 # DDC-probed
VertRefresh 56 - 76 # DDC-probed
# These are the DDC-probed settings reported by your monitor.
# 1024x768, 75.0Hz; hfreq=60.02, vfreq=75.03
ModeLine "1024x768" 78.75 1024 1040 1136 1312 768 769 772 800

oh and now there's about half a cm missing on the left side of the screen.

but all i get is a virtual screen when i try control alt + or - to change from 800x600 to 1024x768.

thanks for the help anyway.

The Knoppix hardware probe gives your monitor pretty much the same refresh values as the manufacturer's site. Can you tell what refresh rates WinXP reports for your monitor? If WinXP uses the same refresh values, then we can at least eliminate the possibility that your monitor's problem under Linux is connected with faulty refresh values.

Thumbs up Let's try this out.....

Hi Marta,

have to agree with you and all the other companions regarding the fact of the stressful situations that the easiest of of things can provide you with a right headache.

Your problem is amazingly similar to mine and I solved it with the most basic methods:

run the command:
" dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86" go through the whole thing selecting the default values, at the end you'll be prompted to select the best view mode - select "800 x 600", next you will be asked to select the bit rate, decrease it from 24 to 16 and then select your resolution to 1024x768.

This, hopefully, should do the trick."!

Let us know....
