Asked by Janet L. Roat on 2010-10-13

After accepting update manager for time zone and daylight savings time, the resolutions changed upon next login. set them to 800x 600 when I try to change the resolutions nothing above 800x600 is there to choose, need help as I can't access my work or many pages with open or continue pages. In other words it has to be scrolled or just close site to exit.

Please don't answer with previous message included.
Could you provide the model of your computer ? And best google it to see which is the GPU (this can be the chipset for a laptop).

 The CPU is AMD Athlon(tm)11 X 2 240 800.000MHz

Please open your terminal, install a pacakge:

  sudo apt-get install mesa-utils

After installing it, invoke this command and give me the output:

  glxinfo | grep OpenGL

Can you help with this problem?
