Changing Resolution


Recommended Posts

My resolution sometimes goes from 800x600 to 1024x768 (Prefurably 1024x768). I've rebooted a bazillion times to see if it would magically change my resolution back to the way it once was (1024x768). I was told that if I used ctrl shift + it would increase the resolution. Is this true? If not, are there other ways?

Well .. its most likely something that X is autodetecting incorrectly... look at your Xorg.conf .. particularly the monitor and card sections. Maybe post it here ?

Where would I find Xorg.conf :huh:

 

/etc/X11/xorg.conf (note the capitalisation of X11).

What exactly am I looking for in xorg.conf.... This sucks, I had to stop x so I could refresh something and now everytime i startx its 800x600! I just keep stopping. starting. stopping. starting, still no luck :(

Attach your Xorg here... it would also be good to get the output of "lspci" (for your card) and make/model of your monitor (or at least its stats).. I'll give it a look over :)
