Good Day everyone,

I have an Acer Aspire 4930, the video card was stated to be Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD. I did not install anything, it works fine on my laptop.

Recently I bought an Acer 20" LCD, resolution was suppose to be 1600x900, but ubuntu does not recognise it. The highest resolution is 1360x768.

Is there anyway to make the resolution to 1600x900?

A quick google on the Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD didn't reveal any specs - are you sure it supports 1600x900?

Ha, googling for the notebook itself quickly revealed http://www.notebook-driver.com/laptops-information/acer-aspire-4930-notebook-technical-specifications/ - looks like it should support 1600x900 no problem.

Perhaps paste your /etc/X11/xorg.conf ?

I don't know how to edit the xorg.conf.

I don't know how to edit the xorg.conf.

Still, perhaps you could paste it (here or in some pastebin) so that people can take a look at it?

Are you using the http://intellinuxgraphics.org/ driver?

These are the code:

# xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server configuration file)
#
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.
#
# Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page.
# (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
#
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
# package.
#
# Note that some configuration settings that could be done previously
# in this file, now are automatically configured by the server and settings
# here are ignored.
#
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
# again, run the following command:
# sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

Section "Device"
Identifier "Configured Video Device"

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Configured Monitor"

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Default Screen"
Monitor "Configured Monitor"
Device "Configured Video Device"
EndSection

However, it is now can set 1600x900. However, it cannot display dual screen. When I set it to have dual screen (Laptop = 1280x800, LCD 1600x900) it require a reboot, when I reboot it stop at a black screen...

Thanks all for the prompt reply. I will check into Intel Linux Graphics.
