Is this a crt or lcd. If lcd just ignore it.

Right click "Applications" then "Edit Menu" from the GUI in the left hand column select "Other" then in the R/H column "Screen and Graphics". Close. Then Applications>Other>Screen and Graphics. When the GUI pops up select your hardware and desired screen res settings. If "Screen and Graphics" doesn't appear first time round then reboot and it should be there. That fixed it for me in 8.04
