    Low Resolution with Ubuntu 9.10

    Hello! I have just installed Ubuntu 9.10 on Toshiba satellite SA20-S103. I am having problems with the resolution, System/Dislplay wont let me choose a higher resolution than 800x600, I would love to have my 1024×768 back.

    The graphics card is a trident "ALi Cyberblade Aladdin Ai1.

    If anyone could help me solve this problem.

    Look in system>Admin>Hardware Drivers. See if you can load a propietary driver. If not post the output of

    lspci | grep VGA

    1.- There isn't any proprietary drivers to load in system>Admin>Hardware Drivers

    2.- The Output of lspci | grep VGA

    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Trident Microsystems CyberBlade XPAi1 (rev 82)


    Thank you!

    The output of (cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf ) is:

    cat: /etc/X11/xorg.conf: No such file or directory


    Which doesn't makes sense to me, so I don't know what to do now. Thank you.
