Description Brian Vuyk 2004-12-22 15:23:21 UTC
Description of problem: X does not read in correct information about 
"HP D2835 Ultra VGA 1280 17-inch Display" in xorg.conf.  It sets 

HorizSync    30.0 - 69.0
VertRefresh  50.0 - 150.0

when correct settings should be 

HorizSync    30.0 - 69.0
VertRefresh  50.0 - 132.0

I am using this monitor with an NVidia Geforce 2 MX, and this does not
allow a resolution over 800X600

hwdata contains the Monitor database.  X.Org just does as it is
configured to do...

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2004-12-22 23:02:05 UTC
Please attach any INF file. Note that the results there are probably
the results of the DDC probe.

Comment 4 Brian Vuyk 2004-12-23 05:10:00 UTC
Note: in the INF, it lists the refresh rates for the D2835 as 

HorizSync    30.0 - 69.0
VertRefresh  50.0 - 160.0

However, these values did not work. It does not allow me to select
beyond 800X600, however, even if I selected that, It still gave me

After researching a bit, I got this site: 


which gave me values of 

HorizSync    30.0 - 69.0
VertRefresh  50.0 - 132.0

which give me complete options for Screen resolution, up to 1280X1024
