    Setting the resolution in 12.04 console.

    I have tried changing the GFXMODE and GFXPAYLOAD in GRUB, but that doesn't work.

    The issue is that during installation, I had the server connected to a large, 1600x1200 monitor, but now it is connected to a monitor that is 1280x1024. Thus, there is a teensy bit of screen that is lost, and the font is extremely large.

    Have you tried using...

    Code:
    xrandr -s 1280x1024

    Yup, I see now you are using a server.

    Here is an article about how to change it in the server edition...

    Yes, that was the one that I saw just before posting this, with no change whatsoever...

    Any answers are appreciated!

    Re: Setting the resolution in 12.04 console.

    did you try...

    Code:
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="video=VGA-1:1280x1024"
    Also, just to be sure, did you "update-grub" after saving your changes before reboot?
