i saw this table in another thread:
Code:
    grub bootloader 'vga=0x???'
Colours 640x400 640x480 800x600 1024x768 1152x864 1280x1024 1600x1200

 8  bits      0x300     0x301     0x303       0x305       0x161       0x307         0x31C

could someone please fill in the '?'s for me..? or actually just the resolution for a 1280x768 screen - which is not in the table..

thx

It may be that the vesafb device (which is configured by the vga= option) does not support widescreen resolutions.

If the kernel supports a specific frambuffer device for your graphics card, you could try to replace the vga= parameter by video=<driver>:<xres>x<yres>[-<bpp>][@refresh].

I can't find a vesa mode-number for this resolution. But someone used this sucessfully:
Code:
video=vesa:1280x768@72

thx for your effort :-)
in the mean time i did a repair session - and after rebooting and looking into menu.1st - i saw that it had set vga=31d..

out of curiosity i will try to enter what you found, to see if that works equally..
if not i can always re-enter the previous setting - or even do a repair again..

cheers
