http://ubuntuforums.org – In Jaunty my display settings accurately gave me resolutions above 1024x768 - higher refresh rates up to 85 Hz (1024x768@85 - lesser refresh rates for higher resolutions) Having searched the forums & tried to create & modify the xorg.conf file (in Karmic beta), I could not create any higher resolutions or refresh rates. current settings: 1024x768@75 (hard on my eyes) Asus P5E-VM HDMI PC Intel duo processor: 2.20 GHz Intel 82G35 Express Integrated Graphics Card rev 3, 328MB xorg.log: Error Failed to load module "i810" (module does not exist, 0) Warning Falling back to old probe method for vesa Warning Falling back to old probe method for fbdev Information intel(0): 720x400@70Hz Information intel(0): 640x480@60Hz Information intel(0): 640x480@75Hz Information intel(0): 800x600@75Hz Information intel(0): 1024x768@75Hz Karmic beta update apparently substituted xserver-xorg-video-i810 intel driver with xserver-xorg-video-intel 2.9.0 1ubuntu1 Karmic beta OS apparently still uses older info instead of using the newer driver!?! - my guess - Please advise in detail, understandable to a former Windows user still fairly new to Ubuntu & Linux I tried to upload the X.org Log file copied from KSystemLog viewer. Thank you for any help you could provide! BavarianPH PS: this is my first thread post ever, I hope I did it right, if not, please advice! Thank you again! (Hardware)
