    Thumbs up Solved: Screen resoloutions only goto 800x600

    Just installed BackTrack 3 on my IBM Thinkpad T23 after deleting backtrack 2 from it.
    In backtrack 2 i could goto the maximum resoloution of the screen (1024x768) but now i am in 3 i can only go as far as 800x600 with the 1024x768 option not even there.

    I have tried opening the resize program and using that but the option isn't there and i have also tried running xconf also not fixing the problem.

    Any other suggestions you can throw forward would be welcome.

    Thanks for your time,

    Default Problem solved

    Problem solved

    In the end, after fiddling with mode lines that wouldn't work for several hours i just loaded a copy of Bactrack2 and then copied the entire configuration file for X over (/etc/X11/xorg.conf).

    If you plan on doing this then please backup your original xorg.conf first.
