I am very new to ubuntu, just switched to Windows to Linux environment and choose the best ubuntu flavor to taste. My screen resolution is set to 1024 and when I try to change the resolution from settings, I can't find any resolution in drop down other than 1024. How to fix this.

Can you add the computer specs to the question - CPU, RAM, and especially graphics. –  mikewhatever Mar 28 '12 at 12:20

Are you using a VGA to DVI adapter by any chance? The only reason is that I had a resolution battle for days, went through about 15 installs, and it turned out to be the adapter. –  user12622 Jul 31 '12 at 16:11
@mikewhatever asked for the graphics card. Which graphics card do you have? Please run 'lspci -v | less' in the terminal, and search for VGA or Graphics. –  r.bitter Aug 29 '12 at 13:57
