--------------040400000500090002060309Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit Attached is my modified xorg.conf file.

My new monitor can go 31-80khz hor, 56-75hz vert.

It is programed for 1440x900 at 55.935khz hor x 59.887hz vertOR 70.635khz hor x 75hz vert.

It seems that as my xorg.conf file is written, xorg does NOT start at1440x900 mode, and will only operate in the other modes listed in thefile. What have I done wrong? (I started with a configurationwith a max of 1280x1024 for a CRT monitor, and I just modified thefile to include 1440x900 changing the monitor max and min frequencies.) --------------040400000500090002060309Content-Type: text/plain; name=xorg.confContent-Transfer-Encoding: 7bitContent-Disposition: inline; filename=xorg.conf # File generated by xorgconfig.

You need a driver for your graphics card/chipset that supports the 1440x900 resolution. I would guess you are using a notebook, the most common graphics chip sets are from ATi or nVidia, both releases closed source drivers that supports those resolutions and the radeon driver (opensource ATi) may support it too, don't know how it's with the nv driver (opensource nVidia, 2D only).

Then I removed the 1280x1024mode from the list and now my monitor works fine in 1440x900 withno scrolling up and down or right to left. And the icons are squarenot squashed! The /var/log/xorg log file helped see what the problemswere too.
