Incorrect Screen Area!

Hello all, ogenki?


I have a strange little problem with my monitor. I'm running my Tiger 4.10.9 fairly great on my Intel PC with nVidia GeForce FX 5200 (AGP 8x, 128 MB) and my Dell Monitor.


Currently, my resolution is 1280x960x32. The problem is that the "horizontal" size of the screen isn't right. The desktop doesn't fit the screen, ie. I see black areas, on the left and on the right.


I adjusted the horizontal size of the monitor to 100%, and still the desktop doesn't fit (i can still see black areas).


Please take a look at the adjustments of my monitor:



I tried looking for a way to adjust it from my "preferences", but i couldn't. I did that because in windows, i can adjust the horizontal & the vertical sizes programmatically from the control panel, so i thought i could do that on mac!


My GFX driver is installed and working properly, ie. QE/CI are both enabled and supported.


Any idea?


Thank you

just do it like this :

<key>Boot Graphics</key>
	<key>Graphics Mode</key>


<key>Graphics Mode</key> <------------- ADD THIS

<string>1280x1024x32</string> <---------THAT IS MINE RESOLUTION


So you need to type your monitor resolution in that string space


that should work,work for me ...
