Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 210256
Default monitor resolution too high 1680x1050 (or 1920x1080)
Last modified: 2008-08-11 12:22:11 EDT
Description of problem: Install of FC6pre x86-64 on ASUS P5VDC-MX motherboard
with VIA vt2851 chipset. VIA UnChrome PRO 1GP video. Came up with a 1680x1050
resolution. This did not work on my LG1970 LCD monitor and also was to high for
my Phiips109. Default resolution should be 800x600 or lower. Can always up the
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: Install twice same problem.
Steps to Reproduce:
Same problem with FC6 10/24 release. Hsink and vsink are out of range of Monitor.
Rescue Boot and add Modes "800x600" to screen in xorg.conf allows me to continue.
1024x768 would most likely also work.
After I'm up and running, I can change the resoultion
I am having a similar problem with a freshly installed FC6, even after updates.
X starts in 1920x1080, which is not very readable, and is a completely wrong
aspect ratio for my 4:3 monitor.
Monitor: Philips 109S(4)
Will attach Xorg log.

Xorg log where X is defaulting to bad resolution
This problem is resolved.
I have create a new release of FC6 (pungi) 1/15/2008, i386. Had no pbolem with
the monitor, default resolution was 1280x1024.
Marking resolve as per comment #4.
Problem seems to still be happening -- using F7test4 LiveCD. Reopening.
Resolution is 1920x1080 on my 19" monitor, which is completely unusable.
Will attach new X log.
Should this be a blocker for F7?

flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.
If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version

Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled

We will be following the process here:

doesn't happen again.
Please keep this bug open. I ran into this problem in F9 Beta with a Radeon
9600. The default resolution in GDM and GNOME was 1920x1080@60Hz, which my CRT
can't handle. Even if could do that resolution it would still be the wrong
aspect. I don't understand why X is trying to use a resolution that isn't
specified by DDC. I can supply my log if needed.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
This was caused by having some rather unlikely large modes in the mode pool. I've removed most of them now on the basis that we shouldn't second-guess the monitor. Please reopen if this is still an issue for you in F10.
