Description of problem:
When i did install linux 8.0 on a Compaq Evo N610c, the screen 2nd screen wasnt 
correct probed. I did get a view with a few vertical lines to much to the right 
or left. 
The lines are on the correct hight of the screen, but to much to the right ore 
left. And it is not every line, but sometimes just one.

I have a Compaq Evo N610c with a XGA (1024*768) grafical screen.
Most of the screens generic laptop screens give the same view.
The developer of the laptop doesnot have any technical information on the 
resolutions of the screen.
I thought that Redhat worked on the new COmpaq and HP productline.

I think it has something to do with the horizontal or vertical sync rates or 
with the refgresh rate of the screen.
How can i manipulated them by hand.
Or do you have an idee about an correct setting.
Please let me no. 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.After installation, the screen is not correctly viewed

Actual Results:  The screen probe does not recognize the screen.
knoppix says it is a HTC 17ac, but also gives no good view of the screen.

Expected Results:  Good redable screen

When i try to open a Window screen in mozilla for example the www.redhat.com 
site; i get only the picture and i can scroll 2 or 3 screens to the right and 3 
or 4 down. I think something is not quite well detected.
I don't know if this has something to do with the lines, but maybe
