Lubuntu 16.04 LTS not recognizing 1024x768 resolution

Post by salaka1 »


I installed Lubuntu 16.04 yesterday and I am having problems with the monitor display.
The monitor resolution is at 640X480 and I don't see any options to change it to 1024X768.
However when I run it in Live CD mode, I can see the option to change the resolution. Only when I install the OS, this option disappeared and I just see 640X480 alone.

Please let me know how I can do this and add new screen resolution of 1024, 768.
My desktop is 11 years old. The older Ubuntu versions from 10.04 and before do recognize this resolution very well though. I have this issue only when I upgrade to newer version of Ubuntu/Lubuntu.
