Screen Resolution incorrect after updates

Tough to say without knowing more, but if this is a newer ATI graphics
card, (something released since 2008 and up) then you should check to see
if the radeon module is loaded ("lsmod |grep radeon").  If not try manually
loading it with "sudo modprobe radeon" and restarting X (usually "sudo
/etc/init.d/gdm restart").
