    Question Intel Corporation Mobile GM965/GL960 at 1920 x 1080 under 10.4?

    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 0c)

    As you can see from the snippet from lspci, I have the Intel Corporation Mobile GM965/GL960 video card in this Dell D630 I have. For some odd reason, I do not seem to have an xorg.conf file on my system to add more resolutions to. Any ideas?

    Forgive me for saying this...but it ran at 1920 x 1080 by default under Windows 7 Ultimate x86.

    Any ideas would be great...

    10.04 has no xorg.conf by default, but if you manually make one and add data to it the system will read it and use it to get an appropriate resolution or other requirement of an x session. I have to do this for my old ati 9200SE card, but I have no idea what format the data will need to be for your intel card.

    Here's the working bit of mine, which you can try for a basic format, just use your own figures, of course; if it is no use, just delete it.
    Code:
    Section "Device"
        Identifier     "Configured Video Device"
        Driver         "ati"
    EndSection 
    
    Section "Monitor"
        Identifier    "Configured Monitor"
                HorizSync    30-80
                VertRefresh    50-75
    EndSection
    
    Section "Screen"
        Identifier    "Default Screen"
        Monitor        "Configured Monitor"
        Device        "Configured Video Device"
        DefaultDepth    16
        SubSection "Display"
            Modes        "1280x1024" "1280x960" "1152x864" "1024x768" "832x624" "800x600" "720x400" "640x480"

    Ok...I did a ctrl+alt+F1 and then ran "gdm stop" to stop the x server. I then ran "Xorg -configure" to generate a xorg.conf file. Here is the contents of that file:

    Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier "X.org Configured"
    Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
    InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"

    Where and what would I add to have 1920 x 1080 be my default resolution?

    Not at all sure, but try adding it in the bottom section of your file like so:-
    Code:
    Section "Screen"
        Identifier "Screen0"
        Device     "Card0"
        Monitor    "Monitor0"
        SubSection "Display"
            Viewport   0 0
            Depth     1
        EndSubSection
        SubSection "Display"
            Viewport   0 0
            Depth     4
        EndSubSection
        SubSection "Display"
            Viewport   0 0
            Depth     8
        EndSubSection
        SubSection "Display"
            Viewport   0 0
            Depth     15
        EndSubSection
        SubSection "Display"
            Viewport   0 0
            Depth     16
        EndSubSection
        SubSection "Display"
            Viewport   0 0
            Depth     24
        EndSubSection
        SubSection "Display"
            Modes      "1920x1080"
        EndSubSection
    EndSection

    Ok I added it and I still do not have an option to choose 1920 x 1080...where does the xorg.conf need to be located? I have it in \etc\X11 currently...

    That's the right place, but it must be in the wrong format, so I will have to bow out here as I have no idea where to put the configuration you need.
