1400x1050 res on Inspiron (RH7.2) ?
 
Hi,

I'm running RH7.2 with kernel updated to 2.4.9, XFree86 4.1.0
on a Dell Inspiron 8000 laptop (GEForceGo2). I seem to be unable to
get 1400x1050 res - best I get is 1024x768 (@ depth 24). Have tried
2960 and older 2802 drivers, both rpm's and hand-compiled.

Relevant bits of my XF86Config-4 are (note - have tried leaving out the
modelines and letting the X server figure it out - no difference)

1400x1050 res on Inspiron (RH7.2) - sorted
 
Problem sorted - refresh rates (fantastically undocumented) turned out to be the crucial settings:

HorizSync 30-100
VertRefresh 60

(found in "Linux on Laptops") seemed to do the trick.

PS. Apologies for the double post - accidentally posted 1st to graphics card forum, which was then transferred here...

I'm having the same problem as this guy, except that I wasn't able to fix the problem the same way he did. I have a Toshiba 5105-S501. Has anybody with this laptop been able to get X working correctly in 1400x1050? I've tried using the HorizSync 30-100 and VertRefresh 60 setting, but it won't work with this laptop apparently. Other than that, I have the same XF86Config-4 as lionelb.

If anybody has some ideas, please let me know. Thanks!
