I downloaded a game from Steam (run via q4wine) and installed it. When I launch it, the screen turns black and my Samsung LED television says, it doesn't support resolution and I only can exit by taking out the electricity plug from computer, putting it back and restart.

What's the problem.

I am using Ubuntu 12.04LTS & it says that graphics is unknown under System. Although I installed meso-utensils.
