Screen Resolution Problem In Ubuntu 10.10

Hi friends in my computer after installation of ubuntu 10.10 the screen resolution is fixed 800*600. I try to change the resolution of the screen by simply typing the following command

xrandr --output VGA --mode 1024x768

but the above command is not works.

After a long time i found a solution for that
Step-by-step to Change Screen Resolution in Ubuntun 10.10:


praveen@praveen-desktop:~$ sudo apt-get install v86d


praveen@praveen-desktop:~$ sudo gedit /etc/default/grub


simply search the above string and replace with the following string

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=”quiet splash nomodeset video=uvesafb:mode_option=1024×768-24, mtrr=3, scroll=ywrap”
1024*768 is my resolution. If you wish change this into 1366*768 of any other


praveen@praveen-desktop:~$ sudo gedit /etc/intramfs-tools/modules

Add the following string at the bottom of the page
uvesafb mode_option=1366×768-24 mtrr=3 scroll=ywrap”


praveen@praveen-desktop:~$ sudo update-grub


praveen@praveen-desktop:~$ sudo update-grub2


praveen@praveen-desktop:~$ sudo update-initramfs -u

6. Restart your computer

Your monitor resolution is now set as 1024*768

With Regards,
