Resolution too big
My name is Jerry Katzman MD and recently I've put Fedora on my pc and it works great, except for the display which is bigger than usual. The resolution is 640x480 and it won't go higher.
What can I do?

Hi and Welcome !
Which Graphics Card do you have?
Open Terminal/konsole and execute this
su - lspci | grep VGA cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf | grep driver
Try this code to reconfigure Display settings
su - system-config-display --reconfig

Try reconfiguring the graphics settings by running the command "system-config-display --reconfig" or the display configuration tool from the menu.

Are you sure you have the proper drivers installed for your graphics card ?
I have an Nvidia graphics card and when I had installed Fedora the screen resolution was really awful, infact even my mouse cursor wasn't to be seen (although I could track its movements when the menus were getting highlighted). I had to install the kmod-nvidia drivers from the rpm.livna.org repository.
Only after that did I get the option in system-config-display to set my screen resolution to something higher that 800x600.
I suppose the same should apply for ATi drivers too.
. So to cut a long story short, ur graphics card doesn't seem to be supported out of the box on Fedora so you need to install the appropriate drivers for it.
