no no no no, all you need to do is find the correct Modeline definition for
your laptop screen and get proper horizontal and vertical refresh rates.

You will also find it helpful to play with the screen stretching feature on
your laptop when going to and from graphical to text console mode.


BTW as a word of warning, some will say 'use framebuffer', I seriously
recommend against and only use it if you *really* need to.  Its a last resort
fix and more importantly not suitable for laptops as it sucks the CPU juice.
