Default Re: Odd resolution on primary monitor

Hey there Lonni,

Sorry it's taken me so long to reply to vacation and such.

Anything in the conf I got from the internet know how it is, if it's on the net it must be true

I tried what you suggested (removing the two option lines and using your modeline), amongst other things, like not using any modeline (your reply suggested one wasn't necessary). There isn't any change at all. I commented out just about everything in the Section "Monitor" that identifies the 2405FPW except the essentials so that it still comes on. Still no luck.

I'm going to try starting from scratch as my conf file probably just has a lot of junk in it. In the meantime, if you have any other ideas I would appreciate it.

I've attached my bug report from the most recent attempt, and here's the relevant sections of my conf as they are now, before I throw it out.

Section "Monitor"

Happy New Year,
