You copied 20-intel.conf to /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/. It doesn't exist on my 16.04 with Intel graphics, so simply remove it. The instructions for 4.4 on that page also somehow suggest to "fix" the 4.4 distribution driver or firmware with the older 4.3 driver from the Intel website.

You should install the proper display drivers. Enter in System Configuration -> Software and updates, in the Additional drivers tab you should see a list with some Intel-GPU drivers (these used to be privatives). Choose the most recent one and apply changes. Restart and you should be able to choose your screen resolution.

Since there are no longer support for fglrx driver in Ubuntu 16.04, so it seems the built in radeon driver is the only way to solve this problem. First, you have to confirm that your ATI Radeon graphics card is supported by Xorg driver by typing man radeon in 16.04 terminal. Here is mine: R100 Radeon 7200 RV100 Radeon 7000(VE), M6, RN50/ES1000 ...
