View Full Version : [ubuntu] Asus 1000he how can I get 1280x1024 resolution on external monitor?

I am having an issue trying to output a resolution of 1280x1024 to my external monitor, on my 1000HE. For some reason, from the Display manager I only have a max resolution of 1024x768. I know the monitor is capable of handling 1280x1024. How can I get X to use that resolution, when it is connected?

I'm pretty sure what you need to do is edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf and put in the right values. I'm not familiar with that machine, so I don't have any useful suggestions except to search for "Asus 1000he 1280x1040 xorg.conf" (without the quotes) or even "Asus 1000he 1280x1040 xorg.conf site:ubuntuforums.org" and see what comes up.
