    Dolda,

    I was busy with some other stuff so I forgot about this topic but now I'm ready with some brand new questions. I've tried leaving out the fields for the screen size but it will not let me save it that way. Some value must be put in. Does this information effect the ability to use 960x720?

    Yeah, that's right. Most drivers seem to want a Modes line. What information are you referring to that would affect 960x720?

    Well, since the correct drivers are loaded for the video card, I'm assuming that the lack of knowledge for my monitor's horizontal/vertical sync is the culprite behind this problem. I've spent hours on trying to find this info but I'm coming up with nothing. Is there any other way I can get this to work?

    I guess that that really is the problem, and without them it would be hard. In my XFree86.0.log, the X server has explicitly stated this:

    Does it say anything similar in yours?

    Can I send you my log file? Perhaps you might have better luck understanding all this output.

    Sure, send away. I'll put it up publically for everyone to view.

    So there. Here it is: http://www.dolda2000.cjb.net/~fredri.../XFree86.0.log.
    One possible conclusion that I draw from 960x720 not being mention anywhere in the log is that maybe this version of XFree86 didn't have it as a standard built-in mode. You could try with a later version.

    What's funny about this is that 960x720 was a choice when I installed Debian (potato, earlier release) about a year ago.

    Maybe that distro ran XFree86 3.x, and managed to autoprobe that mode on installation?

    I'm beginning to suspect that this resolution is not available in this version and distro of Debian. I asked another guy to look at his log file and he too didn't have any lines with 960x720.
