Do you have any drivers installed? System > Administration > Hardware Drivers. What does this output when you run it in the terminal:

lspci | grep VGA

When i run on terminal

lspci | grep VGA

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82946GZ/GL Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02)

No drivers are installed

If any drivers are present please send the information.

Please update packages list and fully upgrade your installation.

Take a look at
system administration -> hardware drivers

Are there any more options offered in
system preferences -> display

Not tested.
Maybe it helps to generate a new configuration with:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

This might create a xorg.conf in /etc/X11 which can be at least modified afterwards.
Note: Karmic has no xorg.conf per default.

As far as your solution I am not able to change screen resolution is there is another method to do that or provide step wise solution so that I can do it easily.

sudo apt-get install displayconfig-gtk

Then, press Alt+F2, and give the command

gksudo displayconfig-gtk

and you should have your favorite "screens and graphics properties" window.

Actually I'm out of station for 6 to 7 months so I'm not possible to say anything about this information.

Thank you for information please close this question for a while when I test this then open this question.
