OpenSUSE Hardware :: Screen Settings Does Not Appear A Resolution Higher Than 1024x768

Apr 6, 2011

Recently I have acquired 2-port KVM switch. When the monitor is connected through this KVM in Windows 7 resolution is properly detected - 1280x1024. When I go under Linux (openSUSE 11.4 with KDE, nVidia 260.19.44) there is a problem with the resolution. In the screen settings does not appear a resolution higher than 1024x768. How do I set the desired resolution in Linux?

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 :: Login Screen Pops Up But The Resolution Is Messed Up

May 4, 2011

After a lot of headache and time I was finally able to get Ubuntu 11.04 64bit installed along side my Windows 7 64bit installation. The whole process was hindered by the screen resolution being really off, looked like this LINK (aspect ratio of (16:10) I believe it was). After much fiddling i was able to get the installation started hoping that in the end it would let me set the res. correctly once it was installed. About 75% of the way done it threw an error saying there was either a problem with the HDD or the CD, I know my HDD is fine, so I booted up windows and set up my USB thumb drive as the installation device, Unbootable.

My next attempt i hooked the laptop to my internet via cable and started the installation again, this time i found that I could set the res of the LiveCD (which was a pain in the neck) and this time Ubuntu installed and upgraded and seemed all sorts of happy! Once the PC rebooted and i selected to boot into Ubuntu, the(what i suppose is) login screen pops up but the resolution is messed up again and this time I can't navigate at all. I've tried just typing in my password and hitting enter as i can see that it is by default selecting my user name to login with.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Screen Resolution: Stuck At 1024x768 W/10.04?

May 21, 2010

I installed 10.04 on my former windows box last night, and I seem to be stuck at a screen resolution of 1024x768. I have a Geforce 7600 GT graphics card, and I installed current drivers via the hardware drivers option. I can't go above this resolution in the nvidia x-server settings, and even xrandr says the highest resolution I can use is 1024x768. What is up with that, and how can I change it?

Debian Multimedia :: Getting 1024x768 Screen Resolution

Sep 3, 2010

I've googled the issue and had a little luck, though I can't seem to change my xorg.conf file because permissions are defailed. This is the example xorg.conf file I wrote based upon my original and the modifications:

# 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.

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 Multimedia :: Screen Resolution Stuck At 1024x768 - NVidia GeForce 7100

Sep 16, 2010

I am stuck at 1024x768 in Ubuntu 10.04 with the nVidia GeForce 7100. I installed the drivers suggested by nVidia on their website, but it doesn't seem to heighten my resolution any. 1024x768 is the highest which appears in nVidia X Server Settings.

# nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig
# nvidia-xconfig: version 256.53 (buildmeister@builder101) Fri Aug 27 21:34:01 PDT 2010

Is there a way to fix this without having to buy a new card? I've read that the GeForce 7100 is pretty crappy, but I've got no money to space at the moment.

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 :: 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 / Apple :: MacBook Managed To Get A Higher Screen Resolution Than 1280x800?

Apr 23, 2010

I'm a little surprised that I haven't seen any other complaints about their MacBook only going up to a resolution of 1280x800. Does anyone have a configuration for higher resolutions or have any insight into how it might be possible to obtain them? It works in Mac OS X, so it should certainly work in Linux.

Fedora Hardware :: ATI Rage 128 PF / PRO - Can't Get The Screen Resolution To Go Higher Than 848x480

Jan 9, 2011

I've recently been messing with installing Fedora 14 an older computer I have and I've hit a snag. While everything else seems to be just honky dory, I cant get the screen resolution to go higher than 848x480. I know that the screen I'm using supports at least 1024x768 (possibly higher, i don't know) as another computer I have will display at that on it with no problem.

I've spent literally hours mucking about with xrandr, and xorg.conf (had to create it cause it didn't exist)As an addendum: the GUI monitor preferences screen says "Unknown" for the monitor I'm using, where as the xorg.conf file i created accurately detects it as Vendor "NEC" ModelName "PX-50VP" That's not really a big deal though, just a minor quirk I would think.

General :: Screen Resolution Settings Higher Than 800x600 With Ubuntu 10.04 Inside Virtual PC

Oct 3, 2010

This is my first posting as a Linux Newbie. I have installed Ubuntu 10.04 inside of a MS Virtual PC on my Vista machine. Everything seems to work beautifully and is stable. However, I would like to use a resolution higher than the current maximum of 800x600. I've poked around on the web and have tried various tips. I tried using the xrandr options which added a higher resolution mode, but when I would try to set the output to that resolution, I would get an error message to the effect that I could not exceed the current maximum of 800x600.

I tried to cobble parameter values together and create an xorg.conf file, but every iteration seems to produce a bunch of colorful vertical bars within my Virtual PC window, and I would have to blow away that virtual PC setup and rebuild it (along with reinstalling Ubuntu). As I said, 800x600 is not a show stopper, but I would like to take advantage of the real estate I have with my display. These "fifty-five year old" eyes could benefit from the larger size. FYI, I did take a stab at installing Virtual Box, but got the infamous "blue screen", so I would rather stick with what appears to be a stable virtual PC base.

I have fedora 12 and I tried to change the screen resolution under the system menu to a higher one and it changed but now I dont have any menus and I'm not sure if I can use quick keys to go back to the display preferences to reset the screen resolution. Is there anyway I could run the display preferences by running a command in the bash shell or is there a quick key that allows menu access.
