    [ubuntu] Re: SiS 771/671 Mirage 3 Video Drivers

    If so try this xorg.conf (I'm not sure if it...

    I'm not sure if I understand you correctly. Is it, that your Laptop display typically displays a black border on the sides if used with lower resolution? And now the screen is filled but stretched?

    With the free driver there is still vga switcheroo which worked quite well until I found this. The problem is that the catalyst driver fails to run in low power mode after S2RAM.
