I have a Centos 5.7 machine with Intel I10 video (built-in, I guess -- this is
one of those all-in-one mini terminal things) that I'm trying to put a new
1920x1080 monitor onto, without conspicuous success. Prior to this it's been
using a smaller monitor with no issues.
Try as I might I can't get the new monitor to run at its 1920x1080 resolution.
I just realized that I forgot to write down the actual resolution that it runs
at but it's less than it should be, maybe 1280x1024? Obviously the display
looks pretty crappy like that.
I tried following the instructions posted here:
but when I got to the step of typing "xrandr --newmode ..." all I got was a
help screen for xrandr command line options (and --newmode wasn't listed as one
I tried this:
system-config-display --reconfig --set-resolution=1920x1080 --set-depth=24
It rewrote the xorg.conf file but I still didn't get 1920x1080.
I tried changing "vesa" to "i810" in xorg.conf and was then told that the
xserver can't be started. It then took me to a simple GUI-style monitor setup
screen and I told it that a 1920x1080 LCD monitor was connected. It then
created the following xorg.conf, but I still don't get 1920x1080.
The Xorg.0.log file is over 2000 lines so I won't include it in this mesage but
I have posted it here:
Here is what I currently have for xorg.conf but again, it doesn't give me the
full resolution on the monitor:
