  1. In WinXP i run 1024x768, but after loading FC6 my max is 800x600

    I have modified the display settings both via the GUI and by manually
    editing the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file.

    Either way, when i attempt 1024x768 with 16 bit, and reboot, i get
    blank screen.

    Running XP Pro in this box i can run at this reso just fine.

    Here is the result of the lspci:

    00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation 82810E DC-133 GMCH [Graphics
    Memory Controller Hub] (rev 03)
    00:01.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82810E DC-133 CGC
    [Chipset Graphics Controller] (rev 03)
    00:1e.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation 82801AA PCI Bridge (rev 02)

    Onboard graphics card, it looks like.

    Any ideas?

    I think some more details would be welcome,like your xorg.conf-at least
    the essential parts-your distro,and so on.

    here are the relevant sections from xorg.conf:

    Section "Device"
    Identifier "Videocard0"
    Driver "i810"
    EndSection

    Section "Screen"
    Identifier "Screen0"
    Device "Videocard0"
    DefaultDepth 24
    SubSection "Display"
    Viewport 0 0
    Depth 24
    EndSubSection
    EndSection

    I am running Fedora Core 6. I am a linux newb. What else can i
    provide?

    Switch to runlevel 3, *then* run system-config-display. Also, if you
    have NVidia graphics, you may want or need to install the NVidia
    drivers.
