Resolution on HP w2338h
I recently purchased the HP w2338h monitor (previously had HP w1907).
My graphics card is NVIDIA Quadro NVS 290.
With the new monitor, the recommended resolution is 1920x1080. However, when I try to change it, it only allows me to go up to 1680x1050. Regardless, when I switch to that, and restart X, it goes back to 1440x900 (which was the optimal res for the previous monitor).
I tried inserting 'Modes "1920x1080"' into my xorg.conf, but any time I restart X it copies that to xorg.conf.bak.
I am running CentOS 5.5 64-bit.
