Some time ago I was preoccupied with the act of the monitor. for one thing, I tried to reformat my PC that was Ubuntu 9.04 to 10:04.
But the monitor resolution stuck on 800x600 size only.
I finally tried the brain with a little tweaking xorg.conf file reading in x.org , with steps below:
type in terminal :
~$ sudo apt-get install xorg*than :
~$ sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
add this :
and look like here :
# 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. # # Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page. # (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. # # Note that some configuration settings that could be done previously # in this file, now are automatically configured by the server and settings # here are ignored. # # If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated # again, run the following command: # sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg Section "Device" Identifier "Configured Video Device" EndSection Section "Monitor" Identifier "Configured Monitor" HorizSync 28-73 EndSection Section "Screen" Identifier "Default Screen" Monitor "Configured Monitor" Device "Configured Video Device" EndSection
don't forget to restart GDM (Gnome Desktop Manager) :
$ sudo /etc/init.d/gdm restart
