OK this is weird hope someone can answer this question..
this is the first time that happen to me.. I got a laptop from work. I install gentoo all fine and perfect ...
but when I reboot and take the cd out.. it boots but the screen is screw up.. like I first is small... a square in the midle of the lcd screen..so is not using the whole screen but the livecd did.. and I am using genkernel that supose to be like the livecd.. right?
also.. when I log in.. and type it wont refresh... like if I do a top it will overwrite it self and keeps overwriting .. weird..
I never had this problem before.

Any ideas?
Thanks.

Sounds like you need vesafb or vesafb-tng; also check the bios there should be an option about strecthing the screen.
