Subject: [gentoo-user] Help; stuck in 1024x768 or lower mode on old machine

I'm checking out my old backup desktop machine and it has dropped to
1024x768 max.  I distinctly remember it running 1920x1080 on my
1920x1080 monitor in the past. (When I say old, I mean a Dell Inspiron
530 from 2008)  I'm using a KVM switch, like I always have.  Could that
be the problem?  xrandr reports...

I don't run "desktop environments"; I run useful applications
