When I type the commands in step 1 of post 1 I don't get a display called VGA1 or anything like that - I just get "default". Do I therefore use "default" in all of the commands shown in post 1? I am having difficulty getting 1024x768 res on a new Ubuntu install. This PC is also running Win7 (beta) which is able to run 1024x768 without problems on the same hardware so there shouldn't be an issue with capabilities.
