resolution problems

Post by brewmaster1234 » Tue May 13, 2014 12:36

don't know where this belongs so i'll put it here

when i installed the live cd the video was all distorted, could not read anything on the screen, went to the forums and discovered i had to press F5 and select "nomodeset" after doing that everything was great.after the install i noticed my screen resolution was low. the corect drivers were loaded but weren't working properly, after a couple hours of messing around i discovered the fix

edit /boot/grub/grub.cfg
remove "nomodeset" from the boot parameters passed to the kernel

this fixed the problem
