Default screen res on ubuntu

ok. im using ubuntu right now. and i cant change the screen resolution. well, i found the option to change it, but it only lets me use 640x480. ya. so everything is way too big. but that is the highest screen resolution that my monitor supports, so might that be the reason why? anyway, plz help, b/c this is REALLY annoying

thanks

Do you have video card drivers for Linux? I think you need them.

if your monitor cant support higher than 640x480, its time for a monitor upgrade

you have to run the ubuntu system config command off a terminal...i forgot it though. it will come up with a bunch of questions and itll ask what resolutions you have available. you can hit space bar for everyone you want. this help at all?
