ok, BusID PCI:0:2:0 seems to be the correct one to use according to lspci.

The problem you're having is rather specific to the D610.

I made some research on that D610 and it seems like its screen specs are 14.1" SXGA+ (1400x1050 resolution). 1280x1024 will not be available which explain the error. So in order to get that resolution you will need to configure 915resolution and repeat the process for the modeline with the correct resolution.

For more info see here:

Thanks for the response... I don't believe that my computer can support 1400x1050. Although, I tried your suggestions and x-server crashed and sent me to the logon screen. I made the changes manually, and through the x-server reconfig.

I am OK (although I would like to see a better resolution) on the laptop screen at 1024x768, but very painful on the external 19" Dell 1905FS.

One thing I noticed, that is strange is that the /var/log/xorg.0.log shows nothing in the 3c section...

Not sure if this means anything, but I ran 915resolution 3c 1400 1050. Again,

Well, here are some good links that seem to think 1400x1050 is native resolution. The links also have some info and 915resolution settings you might want to try... (outdated but still contain good info)

Unfortunately, still at bay...

The white flag is out, waving it for all to see... please help.

I have read both articles, and tried the various solutions.. and still no luck. Whether it be 1400x1050 or 1280xetc... I am still sick of this fuzzy looking 1024x768 on a 19" LCD monitor.

I have ran 915resolution several times, and restart x-server, and still limited to the two option 1024 and 800. I have ran reconfig with several crashes and if it does come up, it is the same options as before.

As noted in a couple posts ago, I do not understand the log file, but it seems strange that only two modes have info in them; which are the resolutions I have left with... I do not see anything for 1400x1050, or 1280x1024.

I have read as many posts as I have and still I am boggled by this issue. I am willing to try someones xorg.conf file. This is running on a Dell D610 laptop, Pentium processed and the 915GM card.

How do you know what version of xorg and x-server you are running, BTW?
