Laptop monitor issue.

Link to this post 13 Sep 13

I'm not sure if this is in the right area but i have a question. Could someone explain to me how to setup any version of linux so that my 1366x768 resolution to run. right now the only way i can do that is to connect to an external monitor source. It boots and all but i cannot see login screen and i can't see the desktop without using external monitor which can be seen when using the external monitor to login. i was just wondering if there is a way that i can get this pc to just run otherwise because i honestly would prefer to run linux than windows 7 which is currently what i am running. i will probably run ubuntu because it just works.

It sounds like your video card is sending incomplete data or something that is resulting in the autoconfigured Xorg configuration not working. You may have to manually configure the xorg.conf file(s). I recommend starting my checking the /var/log/Xorg.log.0 file for errors, writing a base xorg file from x and then customizing based upon the errors.
