monitor: unknown

Asked by JC on 2011-03-25


    I am very new to Ubuntu and Linux in general, so I really have no idea how to fix this fairly simple problem. When I go to monitor preferences (Systems>Preferences>Monitor) I get that the monitor is unknown. When I click "detect monitor" nothing happens. Luckily for me the resolution is fine, so I don't have to worry about changing it. I am assuming is the monitor driver not being recognized. I am running version 10.10 in a Dell Inspiron 700m Laptop. Windows is also installed on the computer and it recognizes the monitor and the driver, in case that it is relevant. I'd appreciate any help. Thanks,
