    Mandriva Free and desktop resolution


    This is my third foray into linux....

    Now i have a question

    I have an ATI X850XT PE PCI-e video card and a Chimei 17inc LCD panel (which is connected by DVI, on the primary port).

    I have used the system configuration to set the display to 1280 X 1024 flat panel and my max resolution to this as well. when i right on the desktop and navigate to its settings. my resolution is 640 X 480 and my refresh rate is some weird negative number.

    Would this change if i installed the ati drivers (which i know are notoriusly difficult..) but i have done this before on mandrake 9. if i reinstall do which display settings would be recommended.

    PS my is system is

    Gigabyte GA-8I945P PRO
    Intel D940 Cpu
    2 Gig Ram
    sound is onboard.
    winfast dtv1000 tv card
    pioneer dvd drive.

    I'd recommend installing the ATI drivers.
