Whenever i connect my monitor to my laptop, it won't display the video at the native resolution in Ubuntu, but my monitor works fine and does both in Windows 7!
In Ubuntu it just gives me stripes and the image "dances, so if i lower the resolution of the monitor, video displays just fine. I've tried the monitor on my Netbook and it works. Both the Netbook and my Laptop i'm connecting to have an Intel "GMA 950 graphics card".
I've tried Kubuntu, Arch Linux, Mint, and Fedora and they all have the same issue, regarding the monitor resolution, whereas it continues to work fine in Windows 7.
