Hi,
I am using kubutu and my computer is using vishal-laptop 2.6.28-11-generic #42-Ubuntu SMP Fri Apr 17 01:57:59 UTC 2009 i686 GNU/Linux


I am able to change the display resolution in kubuntu but when I change from 1240x768 to 1024x768 then the resolution does change but the new resolution does not occupy the full screen it leaves two emtpy spaces one on the left and the other on the right.
Please see below pastebin for the image.

I am using an intel graphics card
product: Mobile 945GM/GMS/GME, 943/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:27A6]
vendor: Intel Corporation [8086]
bus info: pci@0000:00:02.1
version: 03
width: 32 bits.

I then tried open suse linux and tried the resolution 1024x768 and it took up the full screen to my delight but I want to use kubuntu and not suse I tried to study the xorg.conf file from the suse distro but I could not figure out what I can change to get the same desired effect on Kubuntu. Please see the xorg.conf files below. I will appreciate it if someone can help me out here and tell me how I can configure xorg.conf so that I can use 1024x768.

it sounds like you might have a widescreen laptop... which 1024x768 wouldnt really fit exactly right...
yeah i just looked at your screenshots its because of the lcd being widescreen.
