Default Screen Resloution Issue

I was running 10.4 and was planning on trying out 11.04.

¬*

Looked a found I needed to to to 10.10 first so I did so last night. When that was completed the only resolution available to me was 640 x 480.

¬*

I figured what the heck, and was going to 11.04 anyway, but when I try to run the update manager I can’t see the bottom of the window. I tried guessing by using the tab button and pressing enter and once it seemed like I had selected update
(after it had calculated the upgrade) but then it just crashed or stopped.


¬*

I installed the ARandR screen Layout¬* Editor but it too only shows the one resolution.

¬*

So is there a terminal method to do the upgrade with the gui of the update manager (e.g. after typing in apt-get upgrade since I can see the bottom of the update manager.

¬*

Or is there a way to get other resolutions available to me?

¬*

I ran these and got my specs for the¬* monitor:


sudo apt-get install hwinfo

sudo hwinfo --monitor

(actually it showed it twice)

¬*

When I looked in ect/X11 folder, I do not see a xorg.config file.

¬*

I see Xwrapper.config¬*

¬*

So what would be the best next step in trying to get to 11.04
