    Re: display keeps changing to 800x600

    I wouldn't mind seeing some guidance on editing the file manually, just in case my idea to re-install the entire operating system doesn't pan out either

    Re: display keeps changing to 800x600

    To edit:
    gksudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    Post yours. Tell me about your Monitor and screen resolution of which is capable. Is your card Nvidia? What kind?

    Re: display keeps changing to 800x600

    I just uninstalled and installed the driver again and still the same, the smallest resolution is 640x400.

    I think so but haven't done it before so could use the help definitely, for example the step by step things to do. One issue is that the resolution is so big, that the lower parts of the pages and lower part of the terminal don't show on the screen.

    Re: display keeps changing to 800x600

    Thanks. What do I do with that?

    I have changed the settings a few times, and they keep going back.
