I just loaded mint v.6 xfce onto my HP laptop and its running fine aside from the (800x600) makes my resolution so low that I am always having to move windows around in order to see all of thats on the screen. I have gone into the monitor settings and it gives me no higher setting to choose from. Ive searched around to no avail. If anyone can either point me to the correct threat or give me a solution it would be much appreciated. I am also extremly new to linux as this time 2 weeks ago i barely new it existed. Thanks in advanced Dale
It is an imbeded nvidia. So i shall try the driver. The only thing i ask is when i first loaded mint it came up with a restricted driver warning and i had to dload a driver so i believe i already have the driver installed. Dale

I've been there! There are only (AFAIK) two instances when you need to reboot in Linux: when you install a new kernel or when you install a new video driver. Everything else, the new version starts when you click on it.
