View Full Version : I cant select the monitor type, and I cant change the resolution

5th July 2006, 11:15 AM
I just installed Fedora Core 5 on my IBM R50e laptop and I can only choose between 800 by 600 and 640 by 480. Its a 14.1" lcd monitor on the laptop so I think the native resolution is at 1024 by 768. It also cant recognise the monitor type and it wont even let me configure it. Is there some way I can change the resolution? everything is huge.
Im reasonably new to linux so perhaps its just something simple.
