Have either of you installed your graphic drivers? System - administration - restricted manager.

You can also manually edit your xorg.conf. First, back it up though

cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.old

then edit it:

gksudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf

You need to add your desired resolution, here's an example:

Section "Screen"
 Identifier "Default Screen"
 Monitor "Configured Monitor"
 Device "Configured Video Device"
        DefaultDepth 24
        SubSection "Display"
                Viewport 0 0
                Depth 24
                Modes "1280x1024"
        EndSubSection
EndSection

Section "ServerLayout"
 Identifier "Default Layout"
 Screen "Default Screen"
EndSection

Add your desired resolution/s - save the file, then restart X:

sudo /etc/init.d/gdm restart

If for some reason X fails - you've made an error in your xorg.conf - restore the old file like this:

cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf.old /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Can you help with this problem?
