Thanks ongoto! I restarted this AM and got the resolution changed by doing what you said, (I didn't think of ticking the monitor tab last night to expand it...). I just ticked the resolution tab.
I logged back in to mark it solved and saw your post! To answer your 20 questions I'm running gnome on this box "MMXII" and am getting it ready to loan it to someone to try linux! It's a newly built spare 6 core!
The X11 driver is 290.10-1pclos2 and the open source drivers are also installed??? Going to have to look at that... Hardware accel is a yes, 3ddesktop is a yes.
So resolution is now good and effects all good now!Something else though
, I installed the catalyst control center on gnome, but it goes away after I give the password?? I think Dragynn has addressed this but I'll have to search some at another time. (EDIT)
, upon review of what I posted I HAVE NVIDIA... gonna uninstall CCC .
Anyway thanks for the quick reply!
PS just stuck an HIS silent radeonHD6670 in another box running ZEN (11.7 ver I think?) and it was silky smooth and CCC had already been installed and working and still worked. Pretty big bump from the onboard HD4250 chip.
