About this from your post:

"Then as soon as that finished i ran fglrxconfig and i used the exact same settings as described in THIS THREAD (aside from the monitor resolutions and the refresh rates, which i set my own for my monitor and dont take notice of his steps, the make.sh etc, they are not necessary anymore just take note of the settings he used for his fglrxconfig)."

I gather that when running fglrxconfig, choosing the right (monitor settings) horizontal sync range and vertical sync range is crucial. My machine is a laptop with a 15.4-inch active-matrix TFT display, and for it I have no documentation to suggest what horizontal sync range or vertical sync range I should specify. Any ideas?

when one runs fglrxconfig, it appears that the critical part is getting the (monitor settings) horizontal sync range and vertical sync range specified correctly. The THIS THREAD document says that the valid range for the horizontal sync and vertical sync "should be documented in the manual of your monitor". My monitor is the 15.4 inch 1680-1050 WSXGA+ active-matrix TFT display of my laptop, and that is as much documentation about it as I have. How did you decide what horizontal sync and vertical sync ranges to specify?

i chose these two


1. 31.5 ; up to 640x480 @ 60 Hz (VGA)

and

1. 20 - 60 (e.g. slow scan flat panels with DVI cable)

im not sure if you can go higher, but it doesnt give you the chance to test it to see if it works, and these settings work 100% fine for me, s for the part about 640x480 dont worry about that because you set the monitors resoultion in a few steps. hope this helps

blubery: If you look in the /etc/X11/XF86Config created by your distribution when you installed, you should find the settings that were detected by the install. These would probably work best.
