I am trying to use a 24" external monitor as the primary monitor for my Asus EEE netbook. When I connect it, it works properly, except the max resolution available is 1024x768. Usually, I'd go into the xorg.conf and add it, but 10.10 doesn't seem to have an xorg.conf. I read on another question here that I could simply go into recovery mode and make one using
X -configure and moving the new xorg.conf into /X11/ but that caused X to not even start. I renamed xorg.conf to a temp name for now.
What should I be trying? Thanks!
