Hello

I tried to change screen resolution from 1024x768x85hz to 1280x800x60Hz.I still didn't sort it out.Laptop screen got 15,4 inches.Under windows screen is showing 1280x800 resolution with 59Hz or 60Hz.
I've change xorg.conf which looks now like this:

Section "ServerLayout"

But after system reset,vector is still providing only 1024x768 resolution.Here's a link to laptop manufacturer website :

http://www.fujitsu-siemens.co.uk/home/products/notebooks/amilo_pi_1505.html .

I've been looking on data sheet and there's no informations about screen horizontal or vertical frequencies.That's why I couldn't pass set up methods showed by belowed link!

http://www.vectorlinux.com/forum1/index.php?topic=6210.0

Anyone hava idea what are the horizontal and vertical limits for my laptop screen working in 1280x800x60Hz conditions?  Huh

I think this thread might help you:
http://www.vectorlinux.com/forum2/index.php?topic=2852.msg21796#msg21796

You might need to read back towards the beginning for a clearer idea.

Maybe try commenting out the lines HorizSync and VertRefresh in the monitor section?

tried that but no luck... Sad

I see that I am changing a "mode" with the 915 binary. How do I know what mode to change or what mode is being used?
