Full Screen Help!
 
I have installed knoppmyth on my toshiba 4090xdvd laptop and I can not get a full screen it has a 2 inch border around the side. Can someone point me in the right direction for fixing this and is it possible? the max resolution on the laptop is 1024x768.

Any suggestions are appreciated.

Thanks.

Please post your xorg.conf or XFree86.conf file.

I believe your laptop uses the 640x480 resolution even though at DefaultDept (24) the only choise is 1024x768. It could be that for some reason (lack of memory?) 24 bitplanes is not supported at 1024x768.
Try replacing all references to 640x480 (in Display SubSections) with 1024x768. See where that leads you... and remember to backup your xorg.conf beforehand.

I fixed the problem by changing the horizontal an verticle sync lines to

VertRefresh 50.0 - 110
HorizSync 28.0 - 90.0
