Hello all. Hi, I'm Kristopher. I'm relatively new to Linux. I've used it in the past, but today was the first time I successfully installed it on my crappy lappy. I was super stoked to say farewell to Windows. After the installation of Linux Mint Elyssa XFCE, I'm stuck in 800x600 resolution. I can't seem to figure out how to change the resolution to 1024x768 as my screen supports. Normally, I wouldn't be bothered so much, however, on this machine I've got a black border around the screen on anything other than 1024.
Now, I've done some searching and found some information. I've attempted to change my
with no luck unfortunately. I'm just not sure what I'm doing wrong.
Whenever I reboot my computer I get a crazy colored screen then it tells me that I'm running in low graphics mode. I'd really like to stop that craziness from happening as well. If it helps I'm running a Sony Vaio PCG-R505JL and I have a Intel based VGA. Not sure if I need new drivers or what, but any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance, hopefully I'll be able to find some resolution to my resolution problem. Cheers:D
