    Samsung Syncmaster 913v


    I got one of these 19" lcd's, and when I try to run it in Xorg it will only show a part of my desktop. I running it from my notebook, which has the ati radeon 9000, and i use the provided package and the fglrx server. still, with the correct sync rates ( h:30-81,v:56-75) some of the picture is lost (1280x1024).

    any tips would be appreciated.

    Could you be more specific? "It only shows part of your desktop" meaning what? It's not the correct resolution and you're scrolling around when your mouse hits the edges of the screen? Or that it's acting as an extension of your laptop's monitor rather than an external monitor?

    I'm using a 19" SyncMaster, too (but with nVidia card/drivers), and using those same V & H settings, and no problem with screensize here.

    Can you post your xorg.conf file so we can have a looksee?

    It is using 1280x1024, which the monitor can do, but still I can not see the whole desktop on my external lcd.
