    Columns x Rows: A monitor issue


    Hello, all.

    Ever since I have started with Linux, I have had an annoying problem. Every distro I try does not initially "see" my monitor. Anything that uses Knoppix-based hardware detection always asks me for cols x rows. For the life of me, I cannot find this spec anywhere. Is there some way to find out / convert from resolution specs?

    Monitor:
    17 inch HP "S70" (D7740 in Europe, D7480A in North America. I have the D7480A)

    Avail. resolutionsres@refresh)
    640x480@60,75,85Hz
    720x400@70Hz
    800x600@60,75,85Hz
    1024x768@60, 70, 85Hz

    Horz. Sync:
    50-120Hz

    Vert. Y sync:
    60-85Hz (analog)
    60Hz (digital)

    Active display area horizontal:
    306mm (12.05in)

    Vertical:
    230mm (9.06in)

    I have other specs, but they probably don't apply to the question.

    Any help would be appreciated.
