    Default Cannot Set Resolution No Matter What I Try...

    Good Afternoon All -

    I recently installed BackTrack 5 R2 x64 Gnome on a separate partition on my Samsung NP900X3a Ultrabook. The resolution that the Ultrabook is capable of is 1366x768. I believe the graphics card is an Intel HD 3000.

    After installation, I went to the Monitors section, but 1024x768 was all that was listed or able to pick from. It also said my monitor was Unknown.

    After a lot of research, I tried a few things including xrandr to get it working. I followed the instructions at this site to perform the below steps. At the end, though, I get an error. Even in Monitors now, the correct resolution is listed, but when I try to select and apply it, I get a message saying it could not be applied for CRTC 262.

    Steps I Took

    1. Ran xrandr
    Output: Screen 0: minimum 1024 x 768, current 1024 x 768, maximum 1024 x 768
    default connected 1024x768+0+0 0mm x 0mm
    1024x768 0.0*

    2. Ran cvt 1366 768

    3. Ran xrandr --newmode "1368x768_60.00" 85.25 1368 1440 1576 1784 768 771 781 798 -hsync +vsync

    4. Ran xrandr --addmode default 1366x768_60.00

    5. Ran xrandr --output default --mode 1366x768_60.00

    After step 5 was run, was when I got the output "xrandr: screen cannot be larger than 1024x768 (desired size 1368x768)"

    I obvioulsy know this screen runs that resolution as it does in Windows.

    Any ideas? Thanks!
