Display Resolution for Daewoo Moniter

I have an entry in the screen section of my X11 config file: "1024x768" "800x600", that should let me use a 1024x768 screen resolution.

However, the only option available in the desktop manager is 800x600. I don't know why I can't get the higher resolution, I am sure I am editing the right config file.

One possible problem might be the monitor driver, the desktop properties show the monitor type as unknown, my monitor is a Daewoo, but the model is not listed in the driver set.

Any help is much appreciated, if a driver, tell me how to correct.

Thanks smart people...

Well, I don't know about monitor drivers (didn't think monitors used drivers?), but perhaps the refresh frequencies are set up wrong? Can you see any warnings in the Xorg.0.log (or perhaps XFree86.0.log or something similar)?

You can try to search google or monitorworld for you monitor specs and put them in the monitor section of your config file. Here is the part from my file:

Section "Monitor"
    Identifier     "SyncMaster"
    HorizSync       30.0 - 65.0
    VertRefresh     50.0 - 75.0
    Option         "DPMS"
Change the 'HorizSync' and 'VertRefresh' to equal the specs you find for your monitor.

Hope it helps!
