Ubuntu 14.04 only one resolution avaliable in laptop

Asked by Centollo on 2014-10-29

I recently installed Ubuntu 14.04 in my Packard Bell P5WS0 laptop.
I barely know anything about using ubuntu and I had a hard time installing it, had to end up activating an option called "nosetmode" when doing so, dunno if that has anything to do with this problem.

Now when I try to change the screen resolution the only one avaliable is 1024x768. Whatever you need to know to help me solve this just ask.

Thanks.

What is the output of:

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

Thanks

I'm not sure it worked as intended and I hope it's not a problem that the OS is in Spanish, but here it is:

You have an Optimus based graphics set. Look into nvidia-prime or bumblebee

Can you help with this problem?
