Just finished a new build (AMD budget PC), installed Mint5, and everything seems to work but the display resolution options don't match my new monitor.
I have a new Samsung 19" LCD that wants to be at 1440x900 (I know because the display keeps popping up with that suggestion), but the resolution in Mint only allows 2 options 800x600 or 9xx x 640 (I can't remember the exact numbers). Nowhere near what I want. It is viewable but not optimum.
The graphics function is embedded in the motherboard (ASUS M2N68-AM AM2+/AM2 NVIDIA GeForce 7050PV Micro ATX AMD - bolded part is the vidio chipset) and uses an analog output (D sub) to the monitor (SAMSUNG 933BW High Glossy Black 19" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor)
Would Mint6 solve this? What am I doing wrong?
Any help would be greatly appriciated. Henry
