9 Probably because that's the only mode built into the driver near your

12 Just put an appropriate modeline in your xorg.conf. Probably you can
13 google it. But 1366 is a bit strange, though. In most cases, the
14 horizontal size can be divided by 8, if not 16.

25 Probably internal logic of the monitor. You'd have to ask its
26 manufacturer reg. the "why". BTW, you didn't tell how the monitor is
27 connected. Analog VGA?
