I have installed SLED 11 sp2 on a ThinkCentre M91 that has an i7-2600 processor which is a sandybridge chip with Intel HD Graphics 2000. I am attached to an older Viewsonic VX2835WM via a standard VGA cable. It has a native resolution of 1920x1200 I have the monitor setup disk and SLED was able to use it. I have been unable to get it to run at 1920x1200.

I tried running sax2 -r, the default in that case is 1280x960. I changed it to 1920x1200. When the test mode came up it was in 1280x960. The Xorg.99.log from that test is shown below.

How do I get native resolution to work? Thanks, Darren
