Ubuntu on Desknote laptop, messed up screen
I'm trying to install Ubuntu on my laptop. The problem is that, when the install starts the resolution is set to 1600x1200 and it is too big fit on screen so I can't see all of the window on screen.
So I was able to install it somehow and thought that maybe I can change it later. when the installation was finished, I went to change the resolution and all the options I tried there messed up my screen. I mean all the color were like lines or scrambled pixels and I couldn't see anything it was a big mess.
So I want to ask what causes this, my hardware or drivers. Its hard to do something when I can' see the whole screen. And i tried changing the resolution and did a restart to see if that helped. But now I'm stuck at this ugly screen and I can't change it back. It was fine when running Windows XP.
Unfortunately I don't know the specs of this computer.
