1680x1050 screen resolution (solved)
« on: February 22, 2009, 04:39:13 pm »

I have an ATI HD2400Pro video card installed. I can get the 1600x1200 resolution but not the 1680x1050 resolution which is the optimum resolution for my monitor.

Thanks for the reply nightshift, I have added 1680x1050 to /etc/X11/xorg.conf but it still doesn't appear in the display settings. I also restarted the computer.
