Ubuntu :: Changing A Display Resolution If You Have A Higher Resolution In 9.1?

Dec 7, 2009

I searched the archives and didn't find anything on this, and was just wondering if there is a problem if you load Ubuntu 9.1 and have a display that's higher than 1024x768. I'd prefer a machine with a higher res, but I've heard that Ubuntu will only go as high as 1024x768.I'm guessing, however, that by 9.1, it should recog the higher res while loading and it won't be a problem, but thought I'd check before shelling out on a machine with a nicer display.

OpenSUSE :: Higher Resolution Means Less Display Quality?

Apr 24, 2010

this post started after i have googled around about 2h without solving my problem: the higher the resolution is i set to my opensuse, the greater the symbols and text-sizes of my windows will be (pictures follow).

i installed openSuse in my vmware Workstation tryed differnt screen-sizes. for example here is a perfect display quality with a res of 1024x768: but if i change the res to 2560x1600 i get really ugly results. is there a setting to avoid the resizing of windows like firefox or dolphin /fixing the dpi?

Slackware :: No Mouse Pointer After Changing Display Resolution In KDE?

Feb 16, 2010

after successfully installing Slackware 13, I immediately installed other packages mainly to solve display/freezing issues(see below), I noticed that every time I try to change the display resolution - both from the 'system -> system settings' and from the "plasmoid" -

my mouse cursor would disappear.

now I know it's on the pointer, and not the mouse - I can move the mouse and see "mouse-over" activity, and based on seeing this, even clicking(both left and right) still has effect. In fact, if I were patient enough, I could navigate through my desktop.


I have a Intel 82865g integrated graphics controller, had issues after installing, so I upgraded to the kernel and installed:

libdrm ? 17 ?

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

Ubuntu :: Unable To Fix Higher Screen Resolution?

Mar 3, 2010

I am having a major problem in a new Karmic install. Big rationalisation. Kicked out a lot of machines in favour of Virtual machines. Installed Karmic. Machine has dual 22" wide screen monitors, max res 1680 x 1050. Karmic installed at maximum 800 x 600 and will not go above that. I have looked for xorg.conf and cannot find one anywhere. I have tried the randr as shown by Sharaq but when I try to set the higher resolution it gives message saying maximum size is 800 x 600. I have downloaded the proprietory drivers from Radeon and tried to run them. The installer runs but I cannot get to the 'Continue' button because it is off the bottom of my screen so I cannot set up the drivers. I suspect I am going to have the same problem with the Lucid install I did yesterday. Earlier releases never gave me this issue so why now?
Why is the initial resolution so low?

Ubuntu :: No Support To Set Higher Screen Resolution?

May 7, 2010

I have been on Ubuntu for a total of about 1 hour now, as I have finally made the switch from Windows. So far so good, but I do have some learning to do. First off, when I got Ubuntu 10.04 installed, everything worked great! Video lagged a little however. No biggy. The next time I booted up, it asked if I wanted to install video card drivers. I thought this is why my video was lagging, so I said yes. It then automatically installed my nvidia card drivers.

Then when I rebooted, I was greeted with a 640x480 screen resolution. When I go to System->Preferences->Monitors, I am given a warning that says: "It appears that your graphics driver does not support the necessary extensions to use this tool. Do you want to use your graphics drivers vendor's tool instead?"

Regardless if I hit "yes" or "no" I am brought to windows that should allow me to change resolutions. However, the only resolutions I can choose are 640x480 and 320x240. I know my "monitor" can support higher resolutions as I was running it at higher resolutions before the switch to Ubuntu. (I put monitor in quotes, as I am using a large rear projection T.V. as my monitor). How I can get a higher resolution?

Ubuntu :: Unable To Log On When Screen Resolution Is Higher / Enable This?

Jan 10, 2010

I have a problem with the screen resolution in that most of the time it defaults to 800 x 600. However on occasions when I switch on the resolution increases however just today when it happened after typing in my password it refused to log me in.

Before anyone asks my password is in lower case and the NUMLOCK is off and I know I'm not mis-typing it.

here's the strange bit, when I reset the computer and the resolution goes back to 800 x 600 it then accepts my password. go figure!

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 :: Nvidia Setting Resolution Higher Than Screen?

Dec 6, 2010

I have what I think is a pretty eay question. I'm trying to set the screen resolution of my new 10.10 installation to 1920x1080. The monitor only supports up to 1024x768, but i would like more area. I've done this before but I forgot how i did it. In the end the screen spilled off to the sides and when I ran my cursor over to that section it would disply it. I have a feeling that i need to edit my xorg.conf file, but my nvidia drive has some new mode types and i figured I'd ask before making random changes.

below is my xorg.conf file.

UTC 2010

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Layout0"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
Option "Xinerama" "0"

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Graphics Card For Higher Resolution?

Apr 13, 2011

I'm looking for advice on which is the best video card to get for Ubuntu 11.4. At the moment I have an INTEL SERIES 4 INTEGRATED GRAPHICS CONTROLLER and I can only get it recognized as a "VGA COMPATIBLE" Due to my eyesight I need to have the resolution smaller something like 1168 x 752 I dont need to be be able to play games or anything like that. Just typing, videos and general PC work. OR if anyone could point me in the direction of installing better drivers for my INTEL card as I know Windows XP can give me resolutions of this depth.

Debian :: Can't Get Higher Resolution Than 1024x768 (NVIDIA)

Aug 26, 2015

I installed Debian 8 Jessie with the GNOME 3 desktop environment and I couldn't get pass the login screen after several reboots. Since I read that NVIDIA graphics are problematic, I decided to reinstall the system but selected Mate desktop, which appears to be less graphic intensive than GNOME 3. It worked. However, I can't get a higher resolution than 1024x768 (In Windows I could). The Mate settings in the "System → Preferences → Monitors" does not show higher resolutions.

The information of the graphics card is this:

Code: Select all00:0d.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: NVIDIA Corporation C61 [GeForce 6150SE nForce 430] [10de:03d0] (rev a2)

Before I try to install proprietary drivers as instructed in [URL] ...., I'd like to see if there's anything to try first with the default stuff installed by the system, because that page says:

As of jessie, the need for the proprietary drivers is pretty much over - nouveau now works quite well and works with dual-headed displays by simple and easy configuring from within your desktop(for KDE see System_Settings/Hardware/Display_and_Monitor/Display_Configuration) . The proprietary drivers don't provide normal logging and can be a hidden source of problems.

Fedora Hardware :: Can't Set The Resolution Higher Than 1024x768

Dec 27, 2010

My graphics card just died so I bought a Radeon HD 4350. My monitor is an Acer AL1916W whose default resolution is 1440x900. So I reinstalled Fedora 14 with KDE but I can't set the resolution higher than 1024x768 because that is the highest available.

[corneliu@localhost ~]$ lspci
00:00.0 Host bridge: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon Xpress 200 Host Bridge (rev 01)
00:02.0 PCI bridge: ATI Technologies Inc RS480 PCI-X Root Port
00:11.0 IDE interface: ATI Technologies Inc IXP SB400 Serial ATA Controller (rev 80)


I rebooted but still no dice. I saw a video on ..... using a graphical tool to modify the monitor settings but it seemed to be a Gtk application and I rather not use Gnome applications in KDE (not that I don't like Gnome, but I don't like to mix applications).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: External Monitor Having Resolution Higher Than Native

Jan 2, 2010

I've got a little problem with my 9" netbook. It came preinstalled with Ubuntu (factory install), but I reinstalled it to get a fresh karmic as it was a second hand.The problem is, whenever I plug in an external monitor, rightclick on the display icon and click "Configure Display Settings..." both monitors go black and nothing responds. Weird thing though, is that sometimes the mouse appears on the second monitor. I need a solution for this, either creating a xorg file (I have no clue on how to do that) or some other solution that works.

My netbook resolution is 1024*600, the external monitor resolution is 1024*768. It should be noted that I had a similar problem on another Ubuntu laptop (NVIDIA drivers), but it had to do with the resolution height. My laptop had 1440*900 and my external monitor needed to have the height lower then 900.
For further information, this is what the system profiler says about my graphics card:Display controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS/GME, 943/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller.I hope you guys can help me, as plugging in a netbook to an external monitor (or TV) is not uncommon to me I like doing that, even if there's no point in it.I hope I gave enough information on this, I'm willing to give more if needed of course

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