    Default Resolution problem

    Hi, i am a noob to backtrack. I just installed back track 4 on my laptop(other laptop) on my entire hard drive.

    The problem is that the resolution of the screen does not seem to be able to go above 800x600. When i used the disc before, i was able to make the resolution considerably bigger, and allowing it to envelope the entire screen. However, when i was installing the program on my hard drive, i was on safe mode which operates at a lower resolution. (i am not sure if these things are relevant).

    Also, my laptop is a Dell Inspiron 8200.

    So, how do i force the resolution to change? I tried using xrandr to see all available resolutions but the maximum it offers is 800x600.

    this is exactly my problem too, only I use the Asus Eee 1005peb. Anyone?

    (i hope this isn't a double post, but my last few posts haven't showed up after a few minutes)

    this is exactly my problem as well. The only difference is I use an Asus Eee 1005peb. I have yet to find a solution.
