You can also try to check for some kernel updates and see if that helps!

I switched it to Ubuntu around a year back when I first started using Ubuntu. At the time, I was using a regular CRT monitor and when I installed Ubuntu it set the resolution to 800x600. After some tinkering I managed to get it to 1024x768 (unfortunately I now forget how I managed that). However, a few months later I had to relocate my office, and in the course of shifting the CRT VGA monitor, it met its end. As a replacement I bought an Acer 15 inches x153W LCD monitor.

I know the monitor is capable of handling 1280x1024, but I have been unable to figure out how to get it to perform at this level. In the mean time, I also upgraded to Ubuntu 9.10 - everything on the system works fantastically well except for the inability to reset the monitor resolution to my liking.
