there is probably an answer to this problem somewhere (because i am definitely not the only one having this kind of problem), but i just cannot find it.
i have an intel i945 graphic card on my advent 9212 laptop, and i have just installed mint 7. i also have an external display (iiyama 22"), but i cannot set
the resolution on it on anything higher than 1280x1024 (which, of course, looks awful). i had this problem on almost all distributions before, but then i installed
ubuntu 9.04 and it worked perfectly good and i was able to set the resolution to 1600x1200. but, then, i have installed mint 7 and deleted some config files from
my home directory, and then the problem appeared.
this is my xorg.conf file :
Identifier "Configured Monitor"
Identifier "Default Screen"
Monitor "Configured Monitor"
Device "Configured Video Device"
Virtual 1280 1024
Identifier "Configured Video Device"
Option "DontZap" "False"
(it looks very sparse compared to the versions i had on most distribution before)
any suggestions are more than welcome!
