Sorry if I have missed a relevant posting.
I have run Edubuntu 11.04 successfully on an old laptop from a live dvd while XP was installed on the system along with Ubuntu 10.10.
I then installed Edubuntu, wiping everything else on the drive, but now I get one and a half 640x480 desktops, with no option to increase the resolution and no monitors detected.
Unfortunately the laptop is a generic from a company called Novatech and I cannot find the relevant info on the hardware. I had system info with XP but obviously that's not available now.
I would dearly love to migrate to Linux, and this is the latest in a string of "almost made it" episodes for me so I would greatly appreciate any help. Thanks in advance
