Screen size with Intel G43 chipset
I have a PC that utilizes the Intel G43 chipset. When I attempt to set the screen resolution to 1920x1080, which is supported by both the GPU and the monitor, the resulting screen overflows my actual monitor by a lot. I can only see the middle part of the screen.
On Windows Vista, there is an "Aspect Ratio" setting in the driver that allows me to scale it down to 0.4x0.4. This fixes the problem and then the image fits on my monitor and it looks great. Is there a way I can do something like this in Linux? I played around a little bit with xrandr, but all I can get it to do is seg fault. Maybe I am setting the options wrong, I dunno. If so, it should tell me that the options are wrong instead of just segmentation faulting. :-(
I have Linux Mint 7, a fresh install. Again, my graphics card is an integrated Intel G43 chipset processor. My monitor is an HDTV.
Thanks in advance!
