    Toshiba Screen Resolution Problem

    I have a Toshiba laptop 1805-s204 with Lubuntu 10.10. The resolution is set too low (800x600) with no option to raise it. I think it needs to get to 1024x768. Any help would be appreciated. Here's some more info:

    I added this last line (I attempted to make red) following another post. It appears as a choice now, but it doesn't do anything. Thanks for your help.

    I have not installed any graphics drivers yet that I know of. I did do the "Additional Drivers" thing, but it just came up with some drivers for my wireless card and my on-board modem.
