External monitor blurry display -aspire one netbook


I connected an external 22" monitor to my new linux netbook and now I am trying to improve the display clarity. By shifting the "clock" monitor bar to 100 ,the letters were less faded but edges of my screen were lost (by zooming in). Can I fix that through Linux?

Flat screen need to work to their resolution to not look blurry, so increase the resolution until it looks good, but maybe your netbook video card won't be able to provide a high resolution enough for a 22" screen...

I did a similar thing for my dual-monitor desktop. This is my xorg.conf:

Section "Device"
	Identifier "Default Device"
	Driver "radeon"

Section "Monitor"
	Identifier "DVI-0"

Section "Monitor"
	Identifier "DVI-1"
	Option "RightOf" "DVI-0"

Section "Screen"
        Identifier "Default Screen"
        SubSection "Display"
                Virtual 2560 1024
And if this issue is solved, mark the thread as solved.
