Source : http://www.ihtiarherio.co.tv/2010/12/menambah-resolusi-layar-pada-notebook.html

I still curious how can I adjust the quantel T8 screen resolution to 1024×600 which is maximum resolution. Then I read in the source of this article that there is a way.
So this is how to change the screen resolution he described.
Open the terminal from menu application > accessories > terminal
$ sudo service gdm stop
Then all the process went to terminal screen. Next,
$ sudo X -configure
This command will result a new file called xorg.conf.new
$ sudo service gdm start
To restore the display in GUI mode.
Open the terminal again.
$ cd /home/user
copy file xorg.conf.new to /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Download GeodeLX driver from here.
Install it.

Now determine the resolution we need by cvt command
$ cvt 1024 600
It will result some text line like this and copy it into /etc/X11/xorg.conf
# 1024×600 59.85 Hz (CVT) hsync: 37.35 kHz; pclk: 49.00 MHz
Modeline “1024x600_60.00” 49.00 1024 1072 1168 1312 600 603 613 624 -hsync +vsync

$ sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Go to section monitor, paste the command modeline above.
Save by pressing ctrl+O
Restart the computer
I hope it will work.
