Default Screen Resolution incorrect after updates

Hi! *I'm running Ubuntu Studio 11.04 and recently did routine updates (which I think included a kernel update) and now the screen resolution is set too small and will not allow me to select the correct resolution. *(It's set to 1024x768 but should be 1440x900.) *Ubuntu Studio 11.04 has worked really well up until this point...but I need the viewing space back.


Isn't there a simple graphical utility that I can use to correct this? *(On past Ubuntu Studio versions I've installed some ATI utility, but it never worked reliably, was annoying to use, and the settings would sometimes revert back, especially after kernel updates.)


If not a utility are there simple steps I can take to set this and keep it set correctly?

you can try arandr, or looking for and editing the xorg.conf file (*if* you have one)... i would also have no issues going back to the kernel that works and running that... *

Tough to say without knowing more, but if this is a newer ATI graphics card, (something released since 2008 and up) then you should check to see if the radeon module is loaded ("lsmod |grep radeon"). *If not try manually loading it with "sudo modprobe radeon" and restarting X (usually "sudo /etc/init.d/gdm restart").


Hth,
