Genode is out of frequency range on 1920x1080 monitor

Thanks. I'll try setting the resolution manually. I'm not sure whether the
driver will work at 1920x1080, since the BIOS doesn't have any 1920x1080
modes. Can I manually create a screen mode with the VESA driver?
As for system specs, I am using the master branch of Genode from a week or
two ago. I'm using an Intel Core 2 Quad CPU on an ASUS P5KPL-CM
motherboard. I have 4GB DDR2 ram.

are you using a Genode release version or the github master branch? If
it's the github master branch, the VESA driver chooses the highest
resolution mode reported by the VESA BIOS, which might be more than the
monitor can handle in some cases. Here it would be useful again to see
the log messages. In any case, the VESA driver (fb_drv) can be
configured to choose a specific resolution mode like this:

<config width="1024" height="768" />

BTW, could you please tell us what hardware you are using exactly (CPU
model, mainboard model, how much RAM)?
