I just recently installed ubuntu 11.04 on an old Inspiron 1100 laptop. Everything works fine except it's only displaying in the upper left half of the screen. An older netbook edition displayed correctly. Any help is very appreciated,thank you.
sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
VendorName "Monitor Vendor"
ModelName "Dell E193FP"
HorizSync 30.0 - 83.0
VertRefresh 56.0 - 76.0
have you tried running xrandr to see what modes are possible for the monitor before attempting to change the xorg.conf file?
etc/X11/xorg.conf - if it is using 'vesa' try 'i810' (for Intel graphics). You might also need to put the proper values for HorizSync and VertRefresh in there https://audacity.onl/ https://findmyiphone.onl/ https://origin.onl/
