I am having a hard time with this HP Mini 210 1000 netbook. The screen just stretched out all of a sudden, forcing a resolution (1024x768) which is higher than the display's actual resolution (1024x600). This means that the bottm ~25% of the screen cannot be seen on the laptop's display, however it works fine on an external VGA one. When force setting the resolution back to normal under windows 7, it just streched the screen even further. However, after a bit of experimenting, I managed to force the resolution to stay without stretching on Lubuntu. I used the
xrandr --output LVDS1 --fb 1024x600
command, and it set the resolution so that I can see everything on the screen. However, I am still faced with two problems: this won't stay following a reboot, and I various OS bits go off screen below the visible section.
I tried to force the resolution by placing the command into the
/etc/rc.local script, however it did not seem to work. I also played around with creating new modes, and using the panning and pos options, however I wasn't able to achieve much.
