    When using an installed KDE distro, I am "typically" unable to resize the display from the default (for my LCD monitor) of 1280 X 1024. I usually want to use 1024 X 768.

    When I resize to 1024 X 768, a strip at the top of the screen is blacked out. I restart the PC and I am back at 1280 X 1024. Usually Gnome distros do not have this issue. I am currently trying Pardus 2011.1 KDE 32 bit (installed). The Live DVD of Pardus 2011.1 32 bit allowed me to successfully resize to 1024 X 768.

    Does anyone know of a way to fix this issue?

    Thanks in Advance.

    I had the same problem with PCLinuxOS KDE. I changed the resolution under System Settings-hardware-video card. I haven't used Pardus. You should look under hardware settings and find settings for video card or Display. This will ask for your root password before making any changes.

    I found and selected an option to use a limited feature video card driver. Upon PC restart, it gave me the 1024 X 768 size (No other choices) and now I do not have my tray icons.

    It has been several years since I tried PCLinuxOS. I think that I may give it a try soon.
