Screen Resolutions

Hi Guys,

I am currently using fc11, the problem is that i only have one desktop screen resolution to select which is 1280x800 under my System>Preferences>Display.

I am actually wanted more options of screen resolutions just like in Windows. I am using laptop Dell Vostro1400 with Intel card.

Please advice.

Have you looked at your xorg.conf file? Be sure to make a backup of it before you edit it. Usually in /etc/X11. Go to the section called "Screen section."
