you should give up with that for now and try mandrake (now mandriva). trust me on this. it makes everything VERY easy. it has the best support for laptops and a lot of the stuff like power management, mouse support, and visual config is done automaticaly at installation. its got a realy EASY installer thing. if you were to rate it with windoze (10) i would give it an 9 for easyness. its also a good distro to start with if this is your first time trying linux.

Perhaps, I may recommend SuSE 9.3 as a desktop for newbie. But startup with BSD. Suicide!

try editing your xorg config file.

i think if you do "xorgcfg -textmode" it should give you an easy walkthrough of setup. go into monitor i think and change vertical and horizontal sync to match your screen.

"Omg Linux hates me" your 14, but are you a girl?
you are talking like a 14 year old girl you know?

maybe you should try another distro, like ubuntu
I'm not sure about that updating BIOS thing though, do you mean your resolutions is gets smaller? or did your 15inch screen turn into a 12 inch screen magically?
