The only thing I can think of seeing your config is that your Screen section is pointing to "My monitor" and your monitor Identifier is set at "Monitor1". Now you got me stumped. Also get rid of your virtual setting since your not using it.

Gotta go to a bicycle criterium.. be back in a couple hours... sorry

Did you try shutting your virtual desktop off?? That is why you can move the mouse around the screen and get "extra" resolution. I hope that solves it cuz I'm out of ideas.

Somewhere when you set up the config of x during installation you had the choise to have a virual desktop yes or no. I supose you said YES and gave the size for it. Would you have chosen NO there would not have been a desktop larger than your screen.
Try to re-configure your X and screen settings and you'll be allright.

In VectorLinux it is "vasm", Vector is based on Slack but I doubt if a tool like "vasm" is present in Slack 9. Try the Slack forum.....?

ya i just went through the xconfig setup and made sure there was no virtual desktop settings, so that issue is taken care of... after reading NVIDIA's readme's about the drivers on the site im beginning to lean towards the problem being this is a laptop, and i might need to add a special "Option" for my laptop resolution
