Description of problem:
After a fresh install of FC2T3 on my DELL Inspiron 8200 (1600x1200,
GeForce 440 2GO) the graphics card was detected correctly. I had to
choose the monitor "Dell 1600x1200 Laptop Display Panel" and the the
resolution to 1600x1200. Then firstboot came up and I could only
choose 640x480 or 800x600 there. In the end X came up in 640x480.
After digging a little bit in the xorg.conf file I found out that some
important lines were commented out:
### Uncomment if you don't want to default to DDC:
# HorizSync 31.5 - 90.0
# VertRefresh 59.0 - 85.0
Reincluding these lines fixed my display problem and now I have a
resolution of 1600x1200.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install a fresh FC2T3
2. try to set 1600x1200 on a DELL Inspiron 8200
