I had a problem with my monitor Dell E207WFP. The first time I connected it to my Ubuntu, it had a possibility to set 1600x1040 resolution, but then I reinstalled some drivers and use set default settings option in monitor, now it has only a 1024x768 available resolution.

I read a tutorial on how to make this with Nvidia driver, but Nvidia made me lots of another troubles and I don't want it on my Ubuntu.
