Cannot Change Resolution In BackTrack 5 R2 x64
Posted on 2012-03-22
Hello All -
I just installed BackTrack 5 R2 x64 Gnome alongside Windows 7 x64 on my laptop. I've used many linux distros before, but it's been a while since I've used BackTrack. I found that it is built on Ubuntu now, though.
Anyways, I start the GUI mode (startx) and get to the desktop. The resolution is in 1024x768. When I go to Monitors to change it, 1024 is my only option. I believe this is because it also lists my monitor as being "Unknown".
My laptop is a Samsung Series 9 NP900X3A and I'm using the built in Intel HD video (3000?). It's standard resolution is 1366x786.
What I've tried so far to resolve issue...
- Tried changing it via Monitors in GUI - only 1 resolution listed
- Installed & ran "Hardware Drivers" package - said i wasn't using any proprietary drivers
- Used pico to edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf and set all 4 resolutions to 1366x786. I logged off then back in. Still, 1024 was my only option. :(
- Updated, then upgraded all packages - nogo
Any ideas? Thanks!
