I have recently installed redhat 9.0 on my dell inspiron 8200. I have Nvidia GeForce 2go and i even installed the driver available on the Nvidia site. The problem is my monitor resolution never goes above 800x600. I tried doing everything even changing the XF86config file by adding more resolutions. I have been real problem working with it as not no window fits in that resolution and everything is displayed outside the screen. Does any one have an idea why this is happening. I hope there would be someone who must have tried installing redhat 9.0 on dell inspiron 8200. Thanx in advance

I have not installed on a Dell Inspiron 8200 ... but try going to Menu - System Settings - Display ... then click the Advanced tab and then the Configure button in the Monitor Box.

You can probe the Monitor ... what does it say?

Try setting to

Dell - 1600 x 1200 Laptop Display Panel

or

Generic - LCD Panel 1600x1200

and see what happens!
