Default Unable to set resolution 1280x1024

Hi,

My X Server can not set resolution higher than 1024x768. It was still acceptable before since I used a CRT monitor, but I just bought a new Acer LCD monitor, it can only work well under 1280x1024.

In my XFree86Config file monitor section, I can not find the modeline for 1280x1024. Is it the reason? If so, how can I get a correct modeline for it?

Thanks!

Below is my computer setting and the X Server config file. The log file is in attachment.

Video Card: Geforce4 MX 440
Driver Version: 4191
Distribution: Suse7.1 with kernel version 2.4.0
Video Bios: Version 4.17.00.61.23
Processor: AMD AthlonXP 2400
MotherBoard: model K7VTA3 with KT333 Northbirdge and VT8235 chipset


File: XFree86Config

As far as I understood, the modelines are only used as specific display modes.
By default, xfree tries all "usual" modes.

you should try changing :

SubSection "Display"
Depth 16
Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480" "1280x1024"

to :

SubSection "Display"
Depth 16
Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"

it will start X in "1280x1024" by default.
Check also the vertRefresh and Horizsync to match your monitor specs, because if current doesn't allow 1280, you'll not have it.

Many many thanks, it works now. Great!

By the way, I set the horizontal and vertical sync according to my monitor specification, but the X Server always changes it to a narrower range. I don't know why, but anyway, it works now, I am very satisfied.

thanks again.
