How did you edit your xorg.conf file to enable other resolutions? Seems like everything i try fs up my config and i have to either restore a backup or reinstall Ubuntu.

Do you have the graphics drivers installed?

Here is how to pre-configure your xorg file before loading the xserver (so you don't have to re-install Ubuntu everytime the xserver crashes)

Here is a nifty little guide I found while browsing the web

Heh, This may sound stupid...
But Make Sure the Monitor selected is correct...
It wouldn't let me use my monitor at above 60 herz for that reason before

I PM'ed you... Let me go copy it into the thread..

Edit: Here it is:

Simple! Open the Xorg file, and scroll down to the "screen" section. This is mine:

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Default Screen"
Device "NVIDIA Corporation NVIDIA Default Card"
Monitor "Generic Monitor"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Depth 1
Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Depth 4
Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Depth 8
Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Depth 15
Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Depth 16
Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Depth 24
Modes "1600x1200" "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection
EndSection


-----------------------------
Now, see at the bottom? I ONLY use 24 bit colour, so I only editied that section. In "Modes" I typed in "1600x1200" and "1280x1024" (In case I ever wanted it.) (My monitor supports 1600x1200.) Its simply quotes, and an X.

Then, restart the x-server, and select the resoloution you want in the GUI. It might already start in the highest resoloution.
