Hello, as the tittle said I have installed FreeBSD 11 on my old HP 550 and the xorg it is not taking the wide screen so I see black big lines on both sides. Any idea of how to fix it?

You've configured your xorg.conf to use the vesa(4) driver. It simply is not capable of doing what you want. I suggest you remove the entire xorg.conf file and let it auto-detect everything.

First thanks for reply, second what do you mean with remove the entire file? Deleting the xorg.conf file or deleting it contents? Because I already tried removing /etc/X11/xorg.conf and restarting but did not work, in this way does not even load the X windows (in my case is Gnome 3).
I do not know if this helps but during the start up and even with the command-login screen it does work the full wide screen. It just get "reduced" when X starts.

Remove the whole file, nowadays it's not needed any more. Not unless it fails to detect something. And in that case you only create a config snippet to put in /usr/local/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/.

I believe this laptop has Intel graphics? Is that correct? I'm not sure if it's required for this model Intel graphics but you may need to install graphics/drm-next-kmod. Make sure you're on 11.2 for that though, 11.1 is missing some required kernel changes.

Yes, it has integrated Intel. So I will do this, I will remove the file and install that port and try. As soon as I arrive home today I will test it and let you know, thanks a lot.
