Hi everyone, I'm new to ubuntu 10.04, as I've just installed it and I have a problem with video settings.
I can't change video resolution for my video adapter (intel 82740 i740). I can only choose between 800x600, 640x480, 400x300... not 1024x768 for example.

Have you seen if there are any restricted drivers for your card?

No restricted drivers...


I used Knoppix 5.1.1 Live CD and it automatically set the resolution to 1024x768.

I also used Puppy linux 5.1 Live CD and it had a configuration program which also utilised 1024x768.

If these versions of linux can utilise the 1024x768 resolution, why can't Ubuntu 10.04
