Hi i have a problem with my screen resolution after installing ubuntu 12.04 I think i have the right drivers, but for some reason the resolution is way to small. It is 640 x 480 and thats the only option under "Monitors". How can I fix this?
I worked out a fix and here it is:
Open up a shell :
(This will show you your connection type, in my case it's VGA1)
(Just type this in and hit enter, my refresh rate is 60. My resolution can handle 1680x1050. Copy the part after 'Modeline' e.g. Modeline "1680x1050_60.00" 146.25 1680 1784 1960 2240 1050 1053 1059 1089 -hsync +vsync then add this to the following command.
(Notice how I took out the "_60.00" part after "1680x1050" above? It only works if you take out that refresh bit.)
(This should add the new resolution you used to get, my monitor only gets to 1680x1050. The VGA1 is the connection type you get in the first command i mentioned. You might have something like hdmi1 or something.)
Reboot your machine afterwards.
