I'm trying to set my resolution as 1280x1024. But all I get is 800x600. I've tried editing my XF86Config file, but that is not working. Here's what my XF86Config file looks like. Any suggestions.

Code:

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen 1"
Device "GeForce2 Ultra"
Monitor "Dell"
DefaultDepth 24

Subsection "Display"
Depth 8
Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600"
ViewPort 0 0
EndSubsection
Subsection "Display"
Depth 16
Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600"
ViewPort 0 0
EndSubsection
Subsection "Display"
Depth 24
Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600"
ViewPort 0 0
EndSubsection
EndSection

I don't remember the exact keys for this, but you could try crtl-alt-+ or crtl-alt--. Other than that you could edit the modes lines to only include "1280x1024".

What does your monitor section look like? Do you have the correct timings for it setup? What is the output of /var/log/XFree86.0.log?

If your refresh rates aren't setup correctly, then you wont be able to hit the maximum resolution for your monitor.
