View Full Version : [ubuntu] 8.04 new installation screen problem

April 25th, 2008, 09:48 PM
I have just completely installed 8.04 lts. I cannot seem to get the display to give me more than 800x600. I am using an k8m800 which has a built in VT3108 (unichrome) display which would not even give me that. The interesting thing is that 7.10 (previous version) gave me 1024x768 without resorting to a display card.

So then I brought out some display cards:

these two kept me at 800x600:
GeForce 6200 AGP 256mb

I still have these to try but I thought I would ask which one might
work before I spent time trying them all in the hope somebody might
have a clue:
DH-Savage 4
109-52800-10 ATI Rage2
GeForce FX 5200 256mb

I understand there is a problem with the unichrome VT3108 built into the motherboard. Any help, on any of this, would be appreciated. I need 1024x768 otherwise my screen is all screwed up.
