    Have tried the above and got as far as point number 4 and the error message "could not be applied CRTC 263" came up.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks.

    Re: Low Resolution with Ubuntu 9.10

    The solution of dylan_newb (#11) works perfectly. This way I adjusted the resolution of my Ati 9600XT graphics card to 1280x1024 (my monitor does not take higher res). Thanks. Just to summarise:
    (BTW: Also works with Ubuntu 10.10; hope a Google search brings you here: Ati 9600 Ubuntu low resolution problem fixed)

    cvt 1280 1024

    which replied with:
    # 1280x1024 59.89 Hz (CVT 1.31M4) hsync: 63.67 kHz; pclk: 109.00 MHz
    Modeline "1280x1024_60.00" 109.00 1280 1368 1496 1712 1024 1027 1034 1063 -hsync +vsync

    then (cut and paste)

    xrandr --newmode "1280x1024_60.00" 109.00 1280 1368 1496 1712 1024 1027 1034 1063 -hsync +vsync

    xrandr --addmode VGA-0 1280x1024_60.00

    (VGA-0 was found by xrandr without options)

    after which the resolution could be changed in the menu System > Preferences > Display (Ubuntu 9.10, or Monitors in Ubuntu 10.10)
    In an open source world, who needs gates and windows?
