    Hey guys. I have a Hanns-G HW191D (WXGA+) monior capable of 1440*900 but I am having problem setting it to that resoultion in Fedora. When I installed FC6 it detected my monitor's refresh settings and all I had to do was tell FC I had a 1440*900 monitor and change the resolution to 1440*900. At first it seemed to work after I restarted X11, but I noticed things where a little stretched. When I checked he resolution again it had dropped down to 1280*1024. Below is my xorg.conf...

    # Xorg configuration created by system-config-display

    Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier "single head configuration"
    Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
    InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"

    Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier "Keyboard0"
    Driver "kbd"
    Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
    Option "XkbLayout" "us"

    Section "Monitor"

    Device "Videocard0"
    Monitor "Monitor0"
    DefaultDepth 24
    SubSection "Display"
    Viewport 0 0
    Depth 24
    Modes "1440x900" "1400x1050" "1280x1024" "1280x960" "1280x800" "1152x864" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"

    Anyone have any idea? (I haven't tried removing all the modes from the xorg and leaving only 1440*900 because it makes no sense that it would work only that way... or does it?)

    Thanks in advance!

    I'd try that option.

    Try it with setting the

    VertRefresh 59.0 - 60.0

    Many Flatscreens can be run @ 75 Hz (or even higher), but it doesn't make
    sense to set the refresh rate higher than 60 Hz, i think. Setting the refresh rate
    to 60 Hz could solve the problem that you describe as "things where a little
    stretched." I hope this will solve your problem,

    cheers - 029
