View Full Version : [ubuntu] Problem with Acer AL1716 resolution

April 6th, 2010, 08:01 PM
Hello there;

My computer is a 64x quad core and for graphics I've installed my (older) 8800gt in it. I run a dual boot system (windows 7 and Ubuntu 9.10). I also use 2 monitors (Samsung SynchMaster 205BW & Acer AL1716).

On Windows 7 that gives no problems, but on Ubuntu I have some problems to configure my Acer AL1716.

I want both screens to have about the same resolution hight. On my Samnsung SuncMaster I use the resolution 1680 * 1050. So I want to configure my Acer screen with a hight of about 1024 - 1050 pixels. But in Ubuntu i can't get my monitor higher than 800x600. I'm not very familiar with Ubuntu, so can you guys help me out?
