I have just installed Suse Linux on my Compaq En series. I have a Compaq V500 monitor on Intel (R) 810 Chipset graphics DC133. I have tried using XF86config, XF86setup and SAX for configuring my VGA for KDE, but still when I run KDE, it does not look that OK, it has a really large task bar that fills half the screen. I thought it's something to do with the screen area but I have tried all settings and even I have used the actual Monitor setting (Horizontal Sync 30-70 Vert 48-150).
Iam using the SVGA drivers.
I will really appreciate help.

Intel810 chipsets need the agpgart.o modules which can be obtained from http://support.intel.com. Without the agpgart modules your screen area with svga drivers will be 320x240. Until you get the agpgart.o module use unsupported video card(genric vga compatible), that will give you a much better screen
