1lcd and 1 crt how to get it to work perfectly?


Ok first off I am an extreme newb... I prefer the GUI right now
I have a broken LCD (which is not intact with the computer) and a CRT. While on windows I had to boot in VGA mode every single time because my computer would think the LCD is still there and I would end up having to disable the LCD in windows so that the CRT would view correctly.
When I installed Mandrake my 1024x1280 monitor does on 1024x1280 resolution does not fill the whole screen. I would REALLY appreciate if someone told me how to fix this.

i think you what you are trying to do was to use your CRT instead of your broken LCD.

if that's the case.
just run Xconfigurator again or the utility that configures your monitor.
then just unplug your lcd since it doesn't work at all.

also for the 1024x1280. if it's your crt. just large your crt's vertical and horizontal range.
if your are talking about your lcd, it should do it automatically. but wasn't it broken?

Talking

yes that's what i'm trying to say my lcd is broken AND YES i have already unplugged it. i wanted to change the horizontal and range (range is the stretch right?, or is range the number in hz?) but if i were to boot into windows without touching anything it fits perfectly

THX MAN I APPRECIATE THAT SOMEONE ACTUALLY RESPONDED

you could change the horizontal and vertical hz. by running Xconfigurator. it that's the command in mandrake for user to reconfigure there display property.
or you could just edit /etc/X11/XF86config. if that file exist.
i never used mandrake, so don't know the exactly thing you need to change.
