I have an old Toshiba Laptop with a very old graphic card "Trydent CyberAladdin P4 v6.x"

After installing of Ubuntu 10.04, my screen resolution is 800x600 and this is a maximum size? I can not find a video driver for my video card.

Can you help me?

Try to install the Trident (not Trydent) drivers :

 sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-trident

And restart your computer.
