View Full Version : [kubuntu] [SOLVED] display half size virtual box

September 12th, 2008, 03:37 AM
I'm running a virtual box on windows xp. i keep getting a warning box that says the display size is 16 bit and it should be 32 bit. Anyway the display only fills about half the screen. But when I do the live boot from the CD the display is fine. How do I change/fix this?
Details please, I'm no geek.

Thanks for your help.
