    Angry Help! Stuck in 800x600

    My Screen Resolution won't go higher than 800x600!!!

    Please help me.

    I'm on a laptop made by Everex.

    It's really hard trying to look up *anything* when you viewing in 800x600 so please help me find a fix.

    Thanks.

    Hi there. Sorry to hear about your woes.

    Would you mind attaching the contents on your xorg.conf file.

    You can open it from the terminal using the command:
    Code:
    gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    for Ubuntu or:
    Code:
    kate /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    for Kubuntu.

    Also can you try running the following command from the terminal:
    Code:
    lspci -v | less
    Look for a device called VGA Compatible COntroller and post the name of it.

    ^^Some of the stuff above might be what I tried to change by following a web page about sorting out Ubuntu screen resolution. It didn't work tho.
