    You can try using CTRL ALT + or CTRL ALT - keyboard combinations, to change the resolution while in X.

    Also you could edit your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file and simply change lines inside

    Section "Screen"
    ...
    FROM Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
    TO Modes "800x600"

    EndSection


    Save the file, and restart X...[/img]

    It seems as if you have 800x600 on your video mode list. If that is so then go onto the KDE Control center and change your video mode.
    My New years Resolution is 1280x1024
