    Default Screen Resolution on Asus U43JC

    First thread, excuse my noobness....

    I have been running Backtrack 4 R1 on my Asus U43JC-X1 for quite a while now and I am beginning to get sick of not having the option for optimal resolution. Every time i attempt to install a driver (U43JC has Core i5 Graphics along side an Nvidia 310m) xorg gives me a "no screens found" error. Hence the only way I can use Backtract GUI is after the "fixvesa" command leaving my resolution at a not so pretty 1024x768

    What drivers do i need?

    I installed Ubuntu 10.10 beta on the same laptop and found that it was at the correct resolution. It was using the nouveau driver for the Nvidia card and the i915 driver for the Intel chip. Problem is, I cant seem to install either of these drivers on Backtrack.

    Help

    Try actually setting the resolution that you want to use.
    Try using xrandr.

    How do i use xrandr.

    xrandr returns:

    Code:
    Screen 0: minimum 640 x 480, current 1024 x 768, maximum 1024 x 768
    default connected 1024x768+0+0 0mm x 0mm
       1024x768       85.0*
       800x600        86.0
       640x480        86.0
    1366 x 768 Is the natural resolution of my screen.

    So i figured out xrandr but when I add a new mode and try to activate it, it kicks me back to 1024x768.

    Apologie accepted.

    I tried the mentioned tutorial and got this:


    Code:
    root@bt:~# cvt 1366 768
    # 1368x768 59.88 Hz (CVT) hsync: 47.79 kHz; pclk: 85.25 MHz
    Modeline "1368x768_60.00"   85.25  1368 1440 1576 1784  768 771 781 798 -hsync +vsync
    root@bt:~# xrandr --newmode "1368x768_60.00"   85.25  1368 1440 1576 1784  768 771 781 798 -hsync +vsync
    root@bt:~# xrandr --addmode default 1368x768
    xrandr: cannot find mode "1368x768"
    root@bt:~# xrandr --addmode default 1368x768_60.00
    root@bt:~# xrandr --output default --mode 1368x768_60.00
    xrandr: Configure crtc 0 failed
    As soon as I try --addmode it kicks me back to 1024x768
