    Default Intel Integrated Graphics - Resolution Issue

    Hi,

    I'm currently running BT5 R2 x64 Gnome on my Lenovo G570.

    The resolution and screen quality isn't great so I thought I'd update the graphics drivers.

    I've followed a few guides etc. and nothing has enabled me to change the resolution.

    Here is the results of lspci | grep VGA

    Code:
    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09)
    I've also added the below to my Grub file.
    Code:
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="i915.modeset=1"
    I've ran apt-get auto-remove intel-video..... etc. etc. and re-added.

    Any help would be appreciated. I'd say I'm competent with Linux but I'm no pro

    Thanks in advanced.

    Al

    I've also noticed that on boot if I switch back to tty1 there is an error after I run startx that says

    Code:
    (EE) Failed to load module "intel" (module requirement mismatch, 0)
    Thanks,

    Al

    Hi~
    I used to have the exact same problem a while back (unable to set a higher screen resolution to 1366x768) and dual graphics the intel and radeon.
    I followed this guide:

    http://www.backtrack-linux.org/forum...ad.php?t=48904

    And it worked perfectly (for setting the screen resolution) at the moment, ATI doesn't have a way for dual graphics as far as I know.
    I hope that helps ^^
