Fedora, GUI is displayed only as aspect ration 4:3 and not in widescreen format

I have a HO 6710b widescree laptop (Aspect ratio 16:10). When in GUI mode or command line mode, the screen is blank on both the sides and only a 4:3 screen is displayed.

I am not able to set it in wide screen format. Please help

Re: Fedora, GUI is displayed only as aspect ration 4:3 and not in widescreen format

Try to this way, may be it will help for ypu:

Replace driver by running the apt-get command. Open your terminal and type command:
$ sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-intel

Now run ddcprobe command to get monitor VertRefresh values and HorizSync rate:
$ sudo ddcprobe | grep monitorrange

Output:
monitorrange: 24-82, 50-75
"24-82 is your HorizSync rates and the second pair is your VertRefresh (50-75) values."

Next reconfigure xserver (X.org) video and monitor using auto detect feature:
$ sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

Set monitor resolution 1440 x 900 and others as per your requirement. Save the changes and reboot the system.

After login you can adjust screen resolution by visiting System > Preferences > Screen Resolution > Select desired screen resolution such as 1440 x 900 and save the changes.

hope it will help for you...
