    Hi,

    My dad got one of these laptops simply because it's light. Now we want to hook it up to the Lounge TV, which is a Sony 42" and needs 1368x768 is there any way to do this?

    I'm guessing that stage one would be upgrade the graphics driver.

    I'm newish to linux but I'm MSCE though unfortunately I've gotten ME/CFS, I searched this board for this resolution and nothing came up

    My tv worked fine at first by pressing fn+f5, but a few days later it refused to go any higher than 1024x768. Now I use a script containing these lines -

    Code:
    xrandr --newmode "1366x768" 85.9 1366 1438 1626 1798 768 769 772 795 +hsync +vsync
    xrandr --addmode VGA 1366x768
    xrandr --output VGA --mode 1366x768
