Screen Resolution

I pose one question: What does one has to do in order to enhance the screen resolution to be higher than 1024 x 768? I would like it to be 1600 x 1200. My monitor is a 22 inch LCD HP w2007. Many thanks in advance for any answers.

Normally the correct native resolution of your monitor should be detected. What graphicscard do you use ?
Do you have the proprietary graphics drivers installed ?

I have an on board graphics chip that is used. It is an Intel 915 G series. A standard VGA adapter driver, version 6.1.7600.16835 is used. In Windows 7 Ultimate Edition, it has option for 1600 x 1200. Is it possible to get this resolution in Netrunner with this chipset? Should I install an PCI card, in a slot, and load up its drivers? Many thanks for any input in advance. .

If the graphics chip and the monitor support this it should be possible.
What does the output of the command

xrandr show you when executed from terminal ? (Please use quotation to paste inside this thread for anti-spam filter not banning you and better readibility)

My guess currently is that your monitor somehow sends wrong information about supported resolutions back to the graphicsdriver. If thats the case then even a new graphicscard would not help much.
It is however possible to override the auto detection manually. But I really only want to go this route after seeing the xrandr output.

Here’s what I found:

netrunner@netrunner:~$ xrandr
