    Laptop Widescreen problems with FC3


    Hello,

    I want the 1280x800 resolution on my HP Compaq nx9105 widescreen laptop. I have tried to modify the xorg.conf according to all suggestions I have found. They all suggest adding of lines like the ones below with different numbers instead of "n" of course... What do thoose numbers mean?? and how do I decide what is appropiate for my laptop?? Kind of new in the Linux-world...

    In the Section "Monitor"
    ModeLine "1280x800" nnn.n nnnn nnnn nnnn nnnn nnn nnn nnn nnn

    In the Section "Screen"
    Modes "1280x800"

    The videocard installed is a nvidia geforce 420 go

    Please help! Thanks!

    Check this out:

    http://xtiming.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/xtiming.pl

    This will generate a modeline for you. I'm still not sure as to what the timings (that's what they are) mean in the modeline, though I've found names for them all.
