    which Graphics Card do you have?
    check you Monitor's Manual and note down supported HorziSync, VertiRefresh rates and Resolutions ( modes ).
    open Konsole and execute this
    Code:
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
    this command will ask you a lot of Questions. accept default options. enter correct HorizSync and VertiRefresh values when prompted. select supported resolutions. reboot machine.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    I have a Nvidia Geforce 4 mx420. I want the screen res to be 1280 x 720 like I had it in windows. My monitor is a 20 inch widescreen so its supported. Let me try that command.

    press Alt+Ctrl+F1, login and execute that 'sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg' command again. as i suggested earlier, accept default options. enter correct HorizSync and VertiRefresh rates when prompted. reboot machine.

    Ok I did it seems better thanks but it gets so annoying when I boot it up I see that annoying nvidia logo for like one second is there a way to take that off. Also on the top left when it is started it says something about the recycling bin or something can you get that off too.
