Toshiba Tecra Laptop Monitor problem

I have a Toshiba Tecra laptop that I am installing Linux 6.5 on.  During installation I do not find a compatible monitor listed.  I do the custom option and have tried virtually every configuration and end up with a fuzzy screen.  (800-600 res.)  Help

go to www.toshiba.com
search for linux
then there is a page with an x86config file that they suggest, worked for my portege.

the same page also has a link to the tuxtime utilies which allow power management stuff: real neat.

See if your model is listed here.  They have a lot of info on laptops with Linux, including Tecras.

I went to the url.  It did have my laptop.  But I must admit the help looks way over my head.
Anyone else?
