View Full Version : [ubuntu] [SOLVED] Monitor Resolution problem

August 24th, 2008, 06:31 PM
I just installed Hardy and noticed that there was no graphic driver selected in "screens and graphics". When I had used Gutsy I had changed it and nothing happened but this time everything on the screen has enlarged.

When I first installed Hardy it correctly displayed that I had a Dell 17" monitor at 1280x1024

Now it shows "unknown" and wont let me change from 640x480

I made a backup of my xorg.config just now but I don't know where to go from here.

I tried searching around but with this I seem to need specific help so that I don't get too confused.

Thanks for the help.

sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg then restart x or reboot.
