View Full Version : [ubuntu] Low resolution and black borders & no Unity toolbar

January 20th, 2013, 10:34 PM
Hi. I decided to make the switch from windows to ubuntu, it went off to a good start. After three days of using ubuntu, I switched my pc on and came to the login screen and realized something was wrong, I could log in as usual and the problem was still there.

I have absolutely no idea what has happened and I've tried various terminal commands as to what I think the problem might be. Originally I thought I could just change the resolution in the terminal or maybe it could be some drivers need updating. I tried all the possible things I could think of but I had no such luck. I'll post a screen shot so you can see for yourself, hopefully someone here will understand.

My monitors resolution is 1900 x 1080. The image that I've posted is all I can see and also imagine there is a an inch thick black border around it, right to the edge of the monitor.


Problem is fixed now
