Strange Video Issue

Postby kclements » Mon Oct 12, 2009 6:25 pm

Ok .. I did some looking thru and cant find any thing on this issue Per'say

So After install every was good i got a full screen of 1024 x 768 ( 16:10).

after hooking my laptop to my tv - thru the svideo out to watch a movie I brought the display back to the laptop and got the display stuck at 1024 x 768 (4:3) and its not longer full screen, its squared out in the middle of the display . meaning it has small view 15 standard with two black sides and not fill screen of 15 wide ( 16 ;10 ) any help would be wicked

There's a typo here - which resolution do you want?
Open /etc/X11/xorg.conf as root and in
Section "Screen"
SubSection "Display"
Modes "theoneyouwant"
(Of course replace theoneyouwant with the one you want :))
May or may not help
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
