Resolution on Intel DH67GD
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 23, 2012
I have built a computer with an Intel DH67GD motherboard and an i3 processor. The problem is that I am stuck with a 1024*768 max resolution. Now, I have nothing wrong with that resolution, it is just the fact that websites do not render properly on it, and I hate having to constantly zoom out and back in.
I am using a DVI-I to VGA converter, as the customer I built it for does not want to spend any extra money and upgrade it.
Before I dive headfirst into the terminal, I want to know if this is an issue with Intel not supplying drivers or a problem caused by the DVI-I/VGA converter (although it should not happen, considering DVI-I/VGA converters have always worked before).
Also, my monitor is listed as unknown on the display configuration.
There are no proprietary drivers available.
I thought Intel always sent their drivers straight to the kernel devs for implementation, but the only reason I can think of is that the 3.5 kernels are too old to have the drivers, and I'm going to hav

Native Resolution Support Ubuntu?
I had all sorts of problems trying to get my Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid installation to use the correct resolution on my widescreen monitor. My native resolution didn't even show up in the display settings, and my monitor couldn't be detected. It was shown as unknown. After following countless guides, I couldn't get it to detect my monitor or use its native resolution. I installed intel drivers, but after installing them, they were not being used by Xorg. I think it's because my system uses Sandy Bridge hardware, and as such, there are a few bugs in Ubuntu 10.04. After spending 8+ hours, I got it to work.
This guide should work for motherboards using integrated intel video with the H67 chipset (sandy bridge)

Screen Resolution Problems in Fedora 17 KDE with Intel GMA 950 GPU
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 26, 2012
First, some background:
I am running Fedora 17 KDE Spin on a Toshiba Satellite A105-S4164 laptop, which contains an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 GPU. I keep the built-in display disabled, and I use an external VGA 21” CRT monitor at a resolution of 1024x768.
The first indication of a problem arose the first time I booted the computer after installing Fedora. The Grub kernel selection screen got cut off on the left edge of the screen, so I adjusted the monitor to make it fit. However, the monitor resolution didn't change after that screen was dismissed, so the boot splash screen and the desktop were way too small and I had to adjust the monitor again.
If that were the only effect, I could live with it and wouldn't be posting this. But the real problems come when I load a program such as DOSBox or ScummVM (both obtained from the default Fedora repos) and try to switch to fullscreen mode. Then, one of three things happens, seemingly at random:

Unable to set screen resolution 1920x1200 on intel 915GM with ubuntu 8.04
The native resolution 1920x1200 was possible with SuSE 10.1, then also with ubuntu 7.10 (with the 915resolution package). But so far not with ubuntu 8.04. Maximum is 1024x768 ! The 915resolution didn't help anything. Using the old xorg.conf of ubuntu 7.10 didn't help either.
It is said, that with ubuntu 8.04 the 915resolution package is obsolete. The new xorg-server recognizes the intel 915GM resolutions correctly. But in fact it doesn't ! And I cannot find, how to configure it. Help is very appreciated.

Intel 915 graphics card resolution widescreen

I had some trouble getting the resolution of my graphics card right on my laptop, I found several solutions, but I think this is the best one:
(I didn't write it! sorry but forget where I got it from but I guess the author won't mind)
The Intel Extreme 915GM graphics chip is detected by the Ubuntu installer and it correctly writes the /etc/xorg.conf file with modelines for 1280x800 that appear to be appropriate for the built-in panel and no other modelines. Unfortunately the video BIOS fails to report the TFT panel's dimensions as one of the modes available from the card and when X starts however it decides that the most appropriate mode to be in is 1024x768. The resulting video gets mapped onto the TFT and looks wrong because its aspect ratio is incorrect (1280x800 is a widescreen TFT and 1024x768 is a standard screen mode) and the pixels of the mode don't exactly map onto the pixels on the panel. There are also some unfortunate times when bits of windows fall off the
[SOLVED] Cannot set native resolution (1920x1080) on Intel 82945G/GZ

I've just bought new 22" monitor Philips 222EL (1920x1080), but I have problems with setting it's native resolution. Highest one is 1600x1200.
I've got integrated graphical controller - Intel 82945G/GZ (128MB memory thought), but X.server keeps complaining on "exceeded video memory" when I try to set virtual size to 1920x1080.
Here is the error message:
[SOLVED] Dell D620 intel 945GM video card setting resolution
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 6, 2012
I have a Dell Latitude D620 with a new install of CentOS 6.2 x64. I'm trying to wean X11 away from the default vesa driver and to use the graphics hardware.
I've seen all sorts of conflicting information on how this is done for this laptop/graphics card. Some use the 'i915' driver, some 'intel', some fiddle with the 915resolution utility, but none of these have worked for me. Under Windows7, the vid card is detected correctly and the monitor is being driven at 1440x900 (successfully).
Here's the info. Please let me know if I've missed anything.

Resolution problem with external monitor on intel 915
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 26, 2008
I am trying to setup my new 24" Samsung monitor as a second screen for my laptop. I have a Toshiba Satellite M55-S135 with the Intel 915 on-board graphics. My problem is that while the monitor is 1920x1200 I don't have that option in the screen resolution dialog. Also of note, when I try to use the 1600x1200 option the Samsung monitor is very dark, more so at the bottom of the screen, and is unreadable. I booted the latest Knoppix live DVD and I was able to set the external to 1920x1200 only after I reduced the resolution on the laptop screen (capable of 1280x786 but I had to reduce to 800x600) The Knoppix dialog said that I am limited to a virtual screen size of 1920x1920 so I was also forced to place the monitors vertically in the virtual screen instead of side by side.
Knoppix boots with the 24" at full resolution with the laptop cloning the top left corner. Compiz is enabled and the 3d rotating cube with transparency works fairly smoothly. After changing the resol
Macbook Air 4.2 + Ubuntu 10.04 Low resolution screen Support for Intel HD 3000?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 9, 2012
I have a Macbook Air 4.2 (year 2011) running with Ubuntu 10.04.03 (64bit). Everything works perfect, except for the screen resolution display: I am stuck to the low resolution mode (1020 x 768) instead of the native resolution (1440 x 900).
After some research in forums, I found out that the problem is the lack of support in Lucid Lynx for the Intel HD 3000 graphics driver. Worse still, it seems that there is not much that can be done about it, apart from trying to use the xorg-edgers PPA, which is not recommended due to stability concerns:
Does anyone know if anything has changed since then? Is there any solution to this problem? I do not want to upgrade the Ubuntu version because 10.04 is actually my favorite, it is very stable and I like gnome2 much better than gnome3 or Unity. Also, do you know if adding xorg-edgers PPA might fix this issue without compromising the system's stabil
