actually i don't know what acer xv 270 is. a monitor? a graphic card?
the configuration of x resides normally in
but i don't know mandy
if ur acer is a monitor u may fill in the horizontal and vertical frequencies and may get it going
if it is a graphic card u maybe have to find drivers for that and install them

post the exact error message u get starting x. have a look at /var/log/warn
good luck, jens

oh - travelmate - it's a laptop?

yes l'acer travelmate 270xv is a laptop and now I have found how i can do.
I configure it as a dell 1024 Laptop Display Pannel on the configure setting and so i can run X succesfully.
