Ubuntu Screen Resolution Problem

Asked by mark.j.tarr

I have tried the solutions in other forums, but have had no success.

I installed ubuntu 8.10 and the maximum screen resolution i can select is 800x600 when i use windows its 1020x800.

The screen resolution i currently have is a uncomfortable to use for web/word etc.

Is there anything i can do to sort this issue and get a better screen resolution.

Many Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

What graphics card is this ?

You can find out the exact model by going to Applications > Accessories > Terminal and issuing this command:
lspci | grep VGA
