Can someone help me?

You could go to settings > settings-manager > display and change it there (xfce4-display-settings is the actual application used) or use xrandr -s 1280x1024 or whatever your desired resolution is. – user76204 May 4 '13 at 23:36

open the settings manager menu, click on "display" and you can change it from there

Go into Settings Manager then Display and change it. If unable to then check the Alternitave drivers to see if the display adapter is installed.
