Arrow Display Settings for Solo5350

Hi all!
Maybe someone can help me out. I recently got Red Hat 9 and just installed it on my laptop. However I cannot get the display correct. It seems as though the screen is being cut off. Can someone please help its driving me absolutely bonkers. I have tried all the Gateway monitors listed and still nothing. Thanks in advance.

Finally Got It

Wanna thank all who were looking into this. It seems for some ungodly reason that Red Hat 9 didn't auto find my DPI. Once I filled in the screen width and height it worked perfect. I must say that in an age of technology all it took was an old fashioned wooden ruler
