I am running Mint 7 GNOME and I am having screen resolution issues. My monitor is an 17" LCD with native res of 1280*1024 and Mint is not allowing me to raise my resolution above 1024*768 which is causing all of my text to look strange.
I typed wrong version I am using KDE on another machine

have you installed the Nvidia drivers? you can using EnvyNG or Hardware Drivers. how are you changing the screen resolution? there is system settings --> display or nvidia-settings
I have seen this before where the X-server can not tell what your monitor is so it assumes the worst and gives you a low resolution. It is fixed by manually setting the resolution in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.
Thats exactly what its doing it isnt detecting my monitor properly... I tried to open that file and there was nothing I could edit if someone could give me an idiots walk through I would be most appreciative
