My lapyop TFT has a native res of 1440x1080 to my eyes this config file is correct anyone got any ideas why I'm only getting the XF86 default VESA modes (I have to use the vesa module cause neither of the ati ones doesn't recognise my grahics card)?

That's the nature of the veas driver, unfortunately. I've found that sometimes 16 bpp works when 24 bpp doesn't but I wouldn't expect that to help here. The problem is that I don't think 1440x1080 is a standard vesa resolution. Did you have any luck without using the modeline?

From your post I take it that radeon and ati don't work, but have you tried the downloadable driver from ATI? The link is in the archives...

If worst comes to worst, you could try the Xi Graphics Accelerated X Server. I think it starts at about $69 or something, up to $129 for the deluxe laptop version. They do a lot of laptops, and cover a pretty full range of ATI chipsets. I've tried the demo, and it actually feels much faster than XFree86. <A HREF="http://www.xig.com" target="_new">http://www.xig.com&lt;/A>
