    Some info would help. What is specs on computer? Have you installed any video drivers? If so, what one and where did you get it from? How is monitor connected to computer: what kind of cable and any adapters? Lastly, what version of 'buntu are you running?

    What version is your HDMI cable? You must be using at least a 2.0 to get that resolution. If your cable is less than a 2.0, you will not get the resolution that you want.

    Actually, in Win you may or may not be getting the correct resolution. You could be getting a full screen, but at a lower resolution.

    Hello jape258,

    How about running this command from a terminal, xrandr && inxi -G
    and showing the results between the code tags
    Cheers,
