I got a new screen to connect to my laptop (Dell 2209WA)
after connecting it (and it worked fine) I wanted to try the portrait mode so I want to the Display menu and tried rotating it 90 degrees. that told me I need to log in and out. After doing so I can't see anything on my computer anymore. I get the logon screen just fine but as I log on everything is white and some big squares (like big pixels) are around and I can't see anything on my desktop apart from the top and bottom menus of ubuntu.
If I go, through the top menu to the Display menu again and change the resolution to 640x480 everything goes back to normal (apart from the bad resolution) but the min. I try to change it back the problem is there again.

Any ideas?

Thanks!
