    It looks like your screen mode is possible, at least with one driver.
    The highest resolution now possible at 60Hz is 1900x1440.

    I'm sure you could get it to work if you . . . worked . . . at it. Anyway, probably not the best thing to do right now.

    MS Interviewer: So what did you do today?
    Interviewee: Well, I was installing Ubuntu Linux onto a separate partition, because yesterday I figured out that it would support my screen resolution if I edited the /etc/Xorg/Xorg.conf file . . .

    This monitor is almost exactly the same as yours. There's lots of stuff later on in the thread, too; don't close it in disgust after a few posts. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=280683

    Here's someone with your monitor under Debian: http://www.openaddict.com/forums/vie...a07d06f78a1cf3

    I see you posted this already. http://cboard.cprogramming.com/archi...p/t-91708.html

    Here's another thread of yours, just thought I'd post it: http://forum.pcmech.com/showthread.php?t=183814
    I guess the page that person linked to didn't help, but here it is. http://blog.aizatto.com/2007/03/16/s...edgy-eft-6-10/

    I'm not actually that familiar with the Xorg.conf stuff, I just used google . . .

    Back to the subject at hand, what is your assessment. I know there were practically hundreds of students interviewing any given single company for the same job, so you really have to stand out among the rest, so I'm not putting my hopes to high. And since I don't live on campus nor a stones throw from it, it's much harder for me to do anything extracurricular regularly. Doubt I had a chance.
