Ok...I'm running the restricted driver for nNVIDIA video card. I don't know which card this computer has, or how to check. I only can obtain a resolution of 1024x768, but without the nNVIDIA driver I can go much higher. Is there some sort of configuration file I need to edit to enable higher resolutions?

Thanks,
bill

Try loading:

sudo apt-get install nvidia-settings
once loaded run from terminal:

sudo nvidia-settings
set up your screen resolution and refresh rate and save the settings.
