Description of problem:
I have tried several ways to change the resolution on my monitor (Dell 1701fp)
to 1280 x 1024... The monitor was probed correcty during installation.
Attempt 1- Going to display and changing the resolution through the GUI
interface to 1280 x 1024... Then log out to save configuration, and then when
trying to re-log back in the monitor fades black and displays "Cannot display
this resolution"... The default settings to this monitor are 1280 x 1204 @
60mhz. I ran Windows XP with the same monitor for 2 years, at that resolution so
I know the monitor can be at the resolution.
Attempt 2- Manually changing the configuration file /etc/X11/XF86Config
to 1280 x 1024... logged out and same exact process.
I am currently running a ATI Raedon 9200 se, however config x will not allow it
run, and it is probed Vesa (Generic) I dont know if that would have something to
do with it or not.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Changing Display Properties
2.Editting code from /etc/X11/XF86Config
3.Perhaps Video Card probing
Since last year Radeon 9200 SE has been known to be highly problematic. I don't
know if this has changed with newer xorg-x11, or if this is the cause of your
specific problem. (It may not be the monitor.)
Sorry, I left out. I cannot change the resolution back through the Dell Monitor
so I have to have a another monitor near by to change it back (Another Dell 820
I think) And That monitor can display all modes, that I am able to select.
Oh, then disregard what I said in comment #1.
