Configured FC5 to use my Dell 2005FPW display at 1680x1050. I wind up with the monitor acting like a window on a much larger screen. Moving the mouse to the edges displays everything, but I'm not seeing everything at once.

Has anyone got a working xorg.conf for this monitor?

I have it and it works fine after you add the following to your xorg.conf (You should only need 1680x1050 in the Display subsection for 24 bit colour)

Section "Modes"
    Identifier         "16:10"
ModeLine "1680x1050" 146.2 1680 1784 1968 2256 1050 1051 1054 1087 -hsyn
c -vsync

Section "Monitor"
    Identifier     "Monitor0"
    VendorName     "Monitor Vendor"
    ModelName      "Dell 2005FPW (Analog)"
    UseModes       "16:10"
    HorizSync       30.0 - 83.0
    VertRefresh     56.0 - 75.0
    Option         "dpms"
Section "Screen"
    Identifier     "Screen0"
    Device         "Videocard0"
    Monitor        "Monitor0"
    DefaultDepth    24
    Option         "Overlay" "True"
    SubSection     "Display"
        Viewport    0 0
        Depth       16
        Modes      "800x600" "640x480"
    SubSection     "Display"

        Depth       24
Modes "1680x1050" "1600x1200" "1400x1050" "1280x960" "1280x800" "1280x1024" "1152x864" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"


I tried using "Generic LCD 1680x1050" and any setting that puts the width at 1600 or greater screws up. I wonder if the problem is the Intel graphics controller. The monitor reports being in various modes like 1024x768, despite the setting in xorg.conf.

Are you using the video card that Dell recommends you use? That can make all the difference.
