    latop with Compaq 18.5'' external monitor

    Hi,

    I broke my laptop monitor and bought an external monitor (compaq 18.5'', Q1859). My resolution is 1024 X 768 (4:3) and the system->preferences->display shows my monitor as compaq 19''. My problem is the resolution and everything on the display is stretched. I can not change the resolution from the preferences. I am using Ubuntu 9.10. Please help in this, I do not want to throw away my laptop.

    Thanks.

    unchecking the mirror monitor from system-->preferences and select external monitor gave higher resolution option.
