Resolution stuck on 1024x768

Postby heiowge » Sat Feb 09, 2013 7:25 pm

Help! My resolution won't switch back to 1440x900 (default). When I try and switch it back, my monitor just displays a notice that it has no signal!

This doesn't appear to do anything:

Any ideas. Oh, and the windows partition is displaying the correct resolution. :roll:

Booting into KDE solves it. The driver is even set to the nVidia proprietary one. :?

Looks like it's just MATE. Although it was working fine this morning...

Resurrecting this topic. Now KDE is having the issue. Even a reinstall (including the /home partition) will only give me 1360 x 768 instead of 1440 x 900 (as it used to be). Everything looks stretched. I don't like it. :shock:

...aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaannd it's sorted again! :roll:

Turns out that the VGA splitter didn't support 1440x900 (even though it says it's fine with higher resolutions and below). I realised it wasn't a driver issue when I had the same issues with Windows.
