I got my hands on a Ubuntu System (which was displaying correctly) and I installed CentOS 6.3. The screen is wrapping around on itself. Any ideas?

See for yourself

I read 'Laptop 15"' but still have to ask: Is it a built-in or an external display? If the latter applies, how is the display connected: digital (<en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface) or analog (<en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector>)? – jaume Nov 10 '12 at 14:54
    
It is a built in LCD display. – Sky High Nov 18 '12 at 6:02
    
xrandr recognizes it as LVDS1. – Sky High Nov 18 '12 at 7:12

I had the same issue with CentOS 6.3 with a 19" Samsung monitor.

I solved this by changing the resolution in /System/Preferences/Display/ to 1280×720.

I don't get an option to change the resolution. It is stuck at 1366x768, which is the LCD's native resolution. – Sky High Nov 18 '12 at 6:01
