[hardy] wrong screen resolution on laptop HP nw8440

Bug #187588 reported by David Balažic on 2008-01-31

Bug Description

I booted Ubuntu 8.04 LTS (Hardy Heron) Alpha 3 dekstop i386 CD on a HP nw8440 laptop.

The laptop has a LCD with 1680x1050 pixels.

Ubuntu booted to 1280x1024 which looks very stretched.

After adding more wide refresh rate settings to xorg.conf, I could get 1400x1050 which is much better.
Of course 1680x1050 would be correct.

Will post additional details, if anyone is interested ;-)

"Will post additional details, if anyone is interested ;-)"
→ Your xorg.conf would help ;-)

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. Additionally, the output of 'lspci -vvnn' on the system would be helpful too! Thanks in advance.

Please attach your Xorg.0.log as well.

Can you please state next time all your request at once ?
(re)booting from the CD each time takes considerable amount of time.
It would save your and my time.

And here is my xorg.conf, just in case ;-)

Actually, your case is pretty clear.. Vesa does not support widescreen modes, so wait until there's a driver that can handle the new radeons (not too far away).

Changed in xorg:
status: Incomplete → Confirmed

Heh, ok. I marked this as a dupe of bug 136699.

There are other bugs for the r5xx issues. The ati driver will support it soon.
