res 1280x1024 @ 60 Hz, but windows are HUGE

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! I'm running mandriva 2006 power pack, I have a flat screen, MultiSync LCD 1770GX, 17" monitor. I set the resolution to 1280x1024, the icons, and toolbar look great, problem is, when I open up a webpage or kmix, the windows are huge, like kmixer won't even show on the screen only like 2/3 of it will show. Here is a screen shot of what i'm talking about also when I open up a webpage.


Any ideas on how I can fix this?

I also have a GeFOrce 6800 GT, right now i'm using the generic drivers supplied with mandriva which work great so far!

Does your monitor support that size? If not then you would get the problem of windows being too large. Also, try installing the Nvidia driver. There is plenty of posts here that should be able to help you to install. Also www.linuxloader.com has a great guide.
