I have a toshiba p25-s520 laptop
It has a display of 17.0 in wide and 1440 x 900
I have installed mandrake 10.0 on my tower and I love it so much I wanted to install on my laptop.
Easy was not the case. When I'm prompted to the moniter selection stage I can't find the right spec or combination.
Is selection of a monitor a usual problem on installation on laptops.
I would be greatful for any questions, suggestions, and or comments.

I have hooked up a monitor to temp fix the prob.
But doesn't fix the prob with the default monitor on the laptop.
The settings in the config are still the same as the install.
Should I install some sort of driver for the monitor.

On debian, during the install, my monitors res is not there. So, what I had to do was go with the default config (usually 800x600, 60 Hz) and make sure you tell it that its an lcd Then once I get the thing up and running, manually edit the xf86Config-4 file and just add the max res that your screen will take. I think you have to be a bit carefull about refresh rates though, so you have to get your monitor specs and make sure you set it up right otherwise you can damage your monitor.
