Please provide the complete and unedited output of

sudo lshw -C display; lsb_release -crid; uname -a; xrandr

You best use copy and paste commands to ensure complete and correct transfer of the command from the web page to your terminal window and of the output from your terminal window back into the question document (use the terminal window's menu commands "edit - select all" and "edit - copy")

ive run sudo apt-get install virtualbox-guest-dkms

Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said : #11

Before we dig further into details, please tell:

What is the host operating system on your computer (the operating system with which the computer starts when switched on).
And what virtual machines ("guests") do you want to run on this host?

seamus (seamusgm) said : #12

Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said : #13

Have you downloaded and installed the virtualbox extension pack on Windows 10?
Download the *.vbox-extpack file in the version fitting to your virtualbox version from https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads to your Windows system and open that file to install it inside your Windows 10 virtualbox host system.

Then start the Ubuntu guest system and use the menu entry "devices - install guest additions". You should then get some pup-ups on screen, just follow the instructions on screen.
