    hi, im using virtualbox on a vista host.
    i cant get my screen resolution larfer than 800X600. its really frustrating. i installed the guest additions. it didnt help.

    So when you make the virtualbox window fullsize, and go to system - preferences - screen resolution, that's the highest you get?

    I don't know then, sorry. I suspect this is a virtualbox issue - it may not be reporting your monitor information right. Did you try posting on virtualbox forums?
