http://askubuntu.com – Ok, i had my acer zg5 netbook in parts as I was installing a wifi card out of a macbook pro. that part worked great, heaps better signal and fast too. Then... for some reason I tried plugging in the mac's laptop display panel. this is directly into the digital output of the acer mother board.. sure enough it didn't work but also now I have some strange problem. the screen will only display as 800 by 480! to the right is a band of black that makes up the missing resolutions, bellow the new "reduced screen area" is a repetition of the top of the screen. looks like a nasty system crash but ev (HowTos)
