Thanks Anthony. My resolution was fine when I first installed 10.04 LTS.
Additional info: I have a dual boot machine and it's happening in 12.04
LTS on the same machine so I'm thinking the problem is with GRUB.
The results of the command you gave command is:
"00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82Q963/Q965
Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02)"
And using this command: "sudo lshw -C video"
description: VGA compatible controller
product: 82Q963/Q965 Integrated Graphics Controller
vendor: Intel Corporation
physical id: 2
bus info: pci at 0000:00:02.0
width: 64 bits
capabilities: msi pm bus_master cap_list rom
configuration: driver=i915 latency=0
resources: irq:26 memory:f0400000-f04fffff
On the supported Intel video cards page:
I don't see my specific model.
Using this command: "xrandr"
I get this:
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1024 x 768, maximum 8192 x 8192
VGA1 connected 1024x768+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
0mm x 0mm
800x600 60.3 56.2
640x480 59.9 59.9
The actual max resolution for my monitor is: 1280 x 1024
Notice it says the max video resolution for the video hardware is 8192 x
8192 so I'm thinking that the it has enough RAM to accommodate 1280x1024.
I tried this command: "xrandr --output VGA1 --mode 1280x1024"
And this came back:
xrandr: cannot find mode 1280x1024
