View Full Version : [ubuntu] Monitor unknown on Asus n71Jq laptop

I hope I'm not asking a question that was asked on this forum already.

I'm new to linux systems. Today I've installed Ubuntu on wmware and it works fine, but, I can't set the right resolution for my computer (1600X900). I have tried to create custom resolution and without any luck.

I got a i7 processor,
ATI Mobility radeon 5730 video card.
4GB memory

Any other way to solve this issue?

Thank you for your help,

What video card you've got is irrelevant, it is virtual inside of a virtual machine. Surprised? Did you configure your Linux to use vmware video driver?
