Ubuntu :: Screen Resolution Keeps Reverting To 640X480

Feb 10, 2010

I am test driving Ubuntu 9.04 (Desktop) - the screen resolution always pops up as 800 x 600 - Preference Display tells me there is a different graphics driver (which I have installed) and set to 1280 X 800 which then works till I re-boot. I changed it in NVIDIA X Server Settings. When I try to save to X configuration I get a message "Unable to create new X config backup file '/etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup'." - which I presume is because I am not in superuser mode - how do I set up a superuser account (is this even possible?) or is there a nioce simple way for a real newbie to fix this?

Slackware :: Stuck With 640x480 Screen Resolution

Sep 7, 2010

I made a total reinstall of Slack 13.1 the other day and all went seemingly well. After a lot of experimenting and deciding I wanted the disk partitioned differently, a reinstall felt about right. But when I started X the resolution was all too low. xorg.conf was adjusted with the properties of my screen (GDM 4011P). Once upon a time, the Xorg config-tool would ask me my opinion, but now it flashes by and I have to live with what it comes up with.

The nVidia driver was installed (legacy for GeForce 3). I know the config is read, because it fails parsing if I have kHz with the sync-figures. But it otherwise disregard my wish to run at 1280x1024. In XFCE I can run the nVidia configuration tool, but it offers only auto, 320x240 or 640x480. The screen is too small for me to click "ok" on several occasions. The machine is capable of 64bit, 2GHz. But I installed the 32bit version of 13.1, it has 1,5GB RAM.

Fedora :: Cannot Change Resolution To Above 640x480

Aug 12, 2009

I am running fedora 11 live cd on a work computer waiting on a new harddrive. Ran knoppix and Gos 3.1 fine. they start at 800x600 but can relatively easily be changed to much better but fedora likes this really low resolution on the monitor 640x480. In Gos I unhide screens and graphics and change it there but fedora doesn't seem to have this basic setting utility. Where is it in fedora or its equivilant. The basic monitor setting only offers the 1 option and even this box is not fully visible, ok and cancel are cut off at the bottom. Going back to Gos for now, though someone managed to crash it while surfing the net. mATX Via chipset p4m800 s3 unichrome graphics. linux loads vesa drivers instead of s3 unichrome drivers.

Ubuntu :: Resolution Cant Get Higher 640x480.

Jan 2, 2010

My Ubuntu can not go any higher then 640x480. I have found out what the problem is. The monitor has broken down (firmware or some thing) but still works fine in Windows. How do i know this ? Well a few mouths ago i was on Windows Me and one day it booted up saying that it is installing a default driver for the screen , so i let it do and after it did that it would never use the VA702 driver. Also the resolution could get higher then 1280x1024(this is the screens biggest res). A other mouth later i installed Windows XP and when using it i tried to install the VA702 driver but it did not work so i had to manually install it which worked but did not get correct resolutions e.g. could go higher than the monitor is meant to go. Now in Ubuntu can't go higher then 640x480. How can i fix this ?

Screen : ViewSonic VA702
Graphics Card : Winfast My Vivo A170 Geforce 4 MX 440 AGP 4x 64MB DDR

Hardware :: 640x480 Resolution With Radeon And KMS

Aug 25, 2010

I have on old Thinkpad T42 with the Mobility Radeon 7500 graphics chip. It used to work like a charm with the open source radeon driver, until KMS came along. It had no problems except for fullscreen being always black. I thought this is because I have an old card, and used 'nomodeset' in the kernel line, which strangely cranked up the memory usage and made the system choppier, but I managed. Today I was testing the use of an external monitor at home, and found out not only that it only works properly with KMS enabled, but fullscreen games work like a charm (e.g. DOSBox, which I use a lot).

After experimenting a bit, I found out that on the internal display (LCD), 640x480 produces a black screen, while others work as expected. so i set dosbox to use 800x600 as the fullscreen resolution, and it works. The problem is that there are a lot of games (and apps) that I use which provide no configuration options to set the resolution, so I end up with a black screen (when I'm using the internal display, of course). Bottom line: I'm not asking for anyone to fix my problems from a distance, basically blindfolded.

Debian :: Just Installed Lenny - Only Resolution 640x480

Jan 10, 2011

Just upgraded from Etch and now I'm stuck at 640x480 resolution. Xorg.conf doesn't show any display modes, and xrandr gives the only resolution as 640x480. The laptop is a Toshiba Tecra 730XCDT. I know its a doorstop, but 800x600 worked fine under Etch. Anyone know how to to change it back? It's really hard to look at right now.

Debian :: Nvidia On Lenny Only Allows 640x480 Resolution

Apr 23, 2009

I've finally managed to get the nvidia driver on my Lenny box. However I've now found that I can't change resolution from 640x480, the nvidia panel shows this and 320x240 as the only resolution. The layout shows "hidden as under 600 pixels" If I go to gnome screen resolutions it only shows 640x480. If I plug a second monitor in it won't detect it.
I'm using NVIDIA-Linux-x86-180.51-pkg1.run, older versions appear not to work with Lenny crashing x on boot. How to change resolution on the nvidia in Lenny?

Ubuntu :: Resolution Won't Go Higher Than 640x480 With Nvidia Drivers?

May 24, 2010

I have a FX 5200 and a 26" TV with VGA input which supports 1330x760. No problem with this in Windows, but in Ubuntu, as soon as I install nvidia drivers (175) resolution goes 640x480.

I've tried editing xorg.conf in several different ways, but resolution didn't change, maybe I was doing it the wrong way.

PD: 10.04 Lucid Lynx fresh install

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Resolution Stuck At 640X480 With No Other Options

Jun 14, 2010

I am a first time user and recently installed 9.10 from a LiveCd then immediately upgraded to 10.04 LTS. I had no black screen problem, but my resolution is stuck at 640x480 with no other options. I upgraded my driver to NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-195.36.31 and the resolution remains the same. I have a Geforce GTS 250 and an Acer H233H capable of 1920x1080_75.

My XFile:
# nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig
# nvidia-xconfig: version 1.0 (buildmeister@builder62) Thu Jun 3 09:41:37 PDT 2010
# xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server configuration file)
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using values from the debconf database.

# (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only* if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg package .....

I have tried entering a CVT generated modeline to the xorg file but it did nothing.

Ubuntu Servers :: System Hangs When Get Higher Resolution Than 640x480?

May 17, 2010

I have just installed Ubuntu Server 10.04. With Version 8.04 I had no problem to change the resolution from 640x480 to 1440x900 (console, no GUI installed). With 10.04, it does not work, the only resolution that works is 640x480. I have tried the following:

Changed: GRUB_GFXMODE=1440x900
Result: Success, Grub comes up with 1440x900, but when booting, the resolution changes to 640x480
Result: Booting -> blank screen > automatic reboot

Ubuntu :: Nvidia 9600gt : Resolution Stuck On 640x480 With Proprietary Drivers

Oct 20, 2010

I have a BIG issue with my fresh Maverick install : when I install proprietary drivers via the graphic utility, either one proposed, the screen resolution is then max in 640x480. But I have hardware acceleration and compiz effects !

I tried, I think, everything. Forcing the resolution in xorg, in monitors.xml, try the newest ones via the ppa, install an older (and used to be working I'm positive) one with .run (which just prevent any graphic display).

Feb 1, 2010

i have been searching for the past few days on how to do this i have found many articles all telling me slightly different ways of doing so but none have worked. the monitor i am using displays at 1680x1050@60Hz however most access will be from a laptop running at 1366x768 through VNC i have the VNC working thats not a problem my current problem is that when i turn it on the screen defaults to 1600x1200@60Hz when i go to System>Preferences>Screen Resolution the options i get are 1600x1200, 1280x1200,1024x768, 800x600, 640x480 however when i change to something other than 1600x1200 the refresh rate changes to 85Hz and cannot be displayed by my monitor so i have to wait for it to default back, not that i want to change it to any of those in the long term /etc/X11/xorg.conf looks like this (i have only edited the Modes line)

Hardware :: CentOS 5.2, SIS661FX Screen Resolution?

Apr 9, 2009

OK, I have Googled to the end of the Earth and am starting to got nuts! I cannot seem to get my onboard graphics to display a resolution greater than 800x600. As mentioned in the title, I am using CentOS 5.2 and the graphics chip is a SIS 661FX. I have checked that the latest driver is installed, changed the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file to include:


Now, if I restart the system, on occasion I have seen the correct resolution (1204x768), but if I check in "system, administration, display", I only see 2 options (800x600 and 600x480). The next time I restart it goes back to 800x600.

I should add that I have tried several options for modeline (present and absent) and modes in the xorg.conf. The automatically-generated xorg.conf file (after installation) has detected the "sis" driver.

I use a VMWare ESX Server and installed CentOS.

Within the CentOS I can only use the Screen Resolution 800x600.

As I have a VMware installed I use the VMware grafic adapter shown in the hardware selection.

Even if I configure the VM graphic adapter within the ESX to use 1600x1200.
