    Eee Pc Resolution only 800x600

    I have bought an Asus Eee Pc Netbook. I have windows 7 on it which works with 1024x600 max resolution which is enough. However when I try ubuntu 12.04 or 11.04 live usb, it shows max resolution as 800x600. I tried to change it with xrandr but no method has worked. I also added new mode by xrandr but it told me that the mode could not be applied when I selected.
    Please help me!

    Ubuntu 11.10 works perfectly on my Eee 900, but at times I have had the problem you describe when running other versions of Linux. Make sure that you have 915resolution.static in SYSTEM/usr/sbin. If you do have that, you might tried editing the boot parameters to include the command -- xvesa=1024x600x32. That assumes, of course, that you are willing to use xvesa.

    I know how to do that in older versions of grub, but not in the current version. There must be a way.

    There are also ways to drop out of the Ubuntu gui into a plain terminal and then using 915resolution to achieve the same thing after the computer has booted up. I don't recall the details.

    Hey everyone, thanks for your help. I finally found out that after I installed Ubuntu 13.04 through wubi, it works properly and the resolution is full at 1024x600. Thanks for help again.
