Only getting low resolution with new monitor in feisty

Most LCDs run 1024 X 768, though some of the nice expensive newer ones
run as high as 1200 X 1600. 

Try the 1024 setting first, and make sure your refresh rate is set to 
your monitor's
preference. It's in your owner's manual...something like 65-80Hz.

If you don't all you're going to see is crazed horizontal lines, and 
there's little you can do at that
point...maybe reboot and hope the settings didn't stick.
