Video Resolution Problems
« on: May 23, 2008, 06:21:12 am »

I have an ATI Radeon 200M. Not the best supported card, but it works. Problem is, its actually kinda wierd, the resolution for the desktop is fine. BUT when the screensaver comes up, it only takes up a space of about 800x600, instead of my full 17 inch display. What could this be? Everything was set up to automatic during the install. Anyone have any suggestions?

I have had this problem before. The only way I know of to fix it is to install the Proprietary FGLRX driver.

Let us know if that works for you,
