    Ubuntu 9.04 max display setting 800X600 on EasyNote

    Installed Ubuntu 9.04 on Packard Bell Easy Note, Pentium Dual Core, 2 Gig ram

    00:00.0 Host bridge: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] 671MX
    00:01.0 PCI bridge: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] SiS AGP Port (virtual PCI-to-PCI bridge)

    00:05.0 IDE interface: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] SATA Controller / IDE mode (rev 03)
    00:06.0 PCI bridge: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] PCI-to-PCI bridge

    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] 771/671 PCIE VGA Display Adapter (rev 10)

    Problem is that I have only 800X600 for a Wide LCD monitor that should function at 1280X800

    I have failed to get joy by pasting various values in my xorg.conf file like :

    Section "Device"
    Identifier "Configured Video Device"
    Driver "sis671"
    VendorName "Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS]"
    BoardName "771/671 PCIE VGA Display Adapter"
    BusID "PCI:1:0:0"
    Option "EnableSiSCtrl" "yes"
    Option "MetaModes" "1024x768-1152x864 1024x768-1024x768 800x600-1024x768 640x480-1024x768 800x600+800x600 800x600"
    EndSection

    Section "Monitor"
    Identifier "Configured Monitor"
    HorizSync 30-80
    VertRefresh 56-75
    EndSection

    Section "Screen"
    Identifier "Default Screen"
    Monitor "Configured Monitor"
    Device "Configured Video Device"
    DefaultDepth 24
    SubSection "Display"
    Depth 24
    Modes "1280x800" "1024x768" "800x600"
    EndSubSection
    EndSection

    The error came up that I don't have sis drivers installed, but when I check with synaptic, the various modules seem to be loaded.

    My default xorg.conf file is:

    Section "Device"
    Identifier "Configured Video Device"
    Driver "vesa"
    EndSection

    Section "Monitor"
    Identifier "Configured Monitor"
    EndSection

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

    Any help will be appreciated!

    Re: Ubuntu 9.04 max display setting 800X600 on EasyNote

    Hi dude ....

    Here is all that you need:

    Download the driver for your Sis(I too have this) from here:

    http://ubuntuforums.org/attachment.p...2&d=1238430285

    and install the package.

    You need to edit your xorg.conf to this. Remember to backup your old conf file before you play with this.

    You need to be root to change the xorg file...

    The working conf is

    # 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"
    Driver "sis671"
    VendorName "Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS]"
    BoardName "771/671 PCIE VGA Display Adapter"
    BusID "PCI:1:0:0"
    Option "EnableSiSCtrl" "yes"
    Option "MergedFBAuto" "true"
    Option "CRT2Position" "RightOf"
    Option "MetaModes" "1024x768-1152x864 1024x768-1024x768 800x600-1024x768 640x480-1024x768 800x600+800x600 800x600"
    EndSection

    Section "Monitor"
    Identifier "Configured Monitor"
    HorizSync 30-80
    VertRefresh 56-75
    EndSection

    Section "Screen"
    Identifier "Default Screen"
    Monitor "Configured Monitor"
    Device "Configured Video Device"
    DefaultDepth 24
    SubSection "Display"
    Depth 24
    Modes "1152x864" "1024x768" "800x600"
    EndSubSection
    EndSection
