Description of problem:
Wrong resolution on my laptop LCD:

Hardware specs:
Laptop Specifications
Memory: 512MB
CPU: Athlon XP 1400
USB keyboard: Compaq Internet keyboard
Display: 1024x768 LCD 13�
USB mouse: Logitech wheel mouse
PCMCIA: D-Link DWL-660 
Video card: Savage Pro KN-133 8MB
DVD and CDR drive

Setup always gives 640x480 resolution and display area is reduced to a
small square in the center of the screen.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual Results:  640x480 resolution and partial screen display

Expected Results:  1024x768 resolution and full screen display

Additional info:

I found a workaround:
Edit the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file and disable DDC as follows

 ### Uncomment if you don't want to default to DDC:
        HorizSync    31.5 - 48.5
        VertRefresh  40.0 - 70.0
        Option      "dpms"

Afterwards, the resolution is 1024 and the screen size is normal
