  1. i810 - stuck on 1152x768

    I have fresh install of Slackware 12.0 on a Compaq Presario w/celeron
    2.7G processor. The display adapter is "Intel Corporation 82845G/GL"
    and am running video driver "i810".
    It works but xorg is stuck on 1152x768 and cannot budge from it;
    Although I have no "1152x768" setting in xorg.conf
    My monitor is not designed for 1152x768 and really needs a
    conventional pixel size of 1024x768 or 800x600 (all images are too
    narrow).
    Here is the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file:
    =========================================
    Section "Module"

    Control Center's "Display" configuration is no help; I tried changing
    to 1024x768 or 800x600 several times and it just keeps reverting back
    to 1152x768

    Any help will be most appreciated.

    The contents of your Xorg.0.log file would probably be more relevant to
    diagnosing the problem.

    That seems awfully slow to me. Are you sure your monitor can't do
    better?
