    Try setting the vertical refresh to 65Hz instead of 60Hz - it worked for me.

    Thank you for your help but nothing has changed. Now I set up refresh like this:

    Horizontal: 30-52
    Vertical: 50-65 (istead of 50-60)

    My monitor is set up as 13,3" monitor, with 5/4 ratio.
    Still need your help.

    The symptom is a bit different but it could be an old problem playing up.. have a look here : Gnome Using 1024 X 768 Instead Of 1280 X 800 - openSUSE Forums
    ..and the bit about RANDR mode set in /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager

    Also, are the resolutions set correctly when you look in the Graphics Card & Monitors configuration?
    Have a lot of fun!

    Thank you for your help. Yes, resolution is set up correctly. LCD: 1280*800. I'll try to follow the topic you gave.

    Hello. Not yet )))

    I changed DISPLAYMANAGER_RANDR_MODE_auto="1024x768_60 64.11 1024 1080 1184 1344 768 769 772 795 -HSync +Vsync"

    to

    DISPLAYMANAGER_RANDR_MODE_auto="1280x800_60 64.11 1024 1080 1184 1344 768 769 772 795 -HSync +Vsync"

    Same problem.

    Only way out is to use windows xp, although I don't want to...

    I get the same sort of problem after my screensaver has been on for a while.

    I wake it up and get my desktop squished into the corner.

    Any luck solving your problem ?

    I've just left my screensaver off which sucks for a laptop.

    Question Re: Problem with display resolution

    Hello veisong and others with display resolution troubles,

    I know this thread is 2 years old, so I assume you were able to fix or work around this problem with your displays. I am a Linux newbie and am having several similar issues with laptops at the office. How did you solve this? My guess is that it was a bug with old versions of KDE which got solved starting from KDE 4.3.x. Any feedback would be great.

    Check this related thread in these same forums:

    NVIDIA can't lower resolution - openSUSE Forums

    Many thanks in advance!
