that is an interesting output, what I got from xrandr without arguments is:

matt:~$xrandr 
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1366 x 768, maximum 8192 x 8192
VGA1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
LVDS1 connected 1366x768+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 344mm x 194mm
1366x768 60.0*+
1024x768 60.0
800x600 60.3 56.2
640x480 59.9
HDMI1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
DP1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
DP2 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
TV1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)

in my case LVDS1 is my laptop monitor. I am thinking that you have a single connection, which I have not dealt with before.

Have you tried running "xrandr --size 1024x768" to see if it will automatically push to your default display?

thanks.I use this command and work for me. (xrandr --size 1024x76)
But I want to khow that there is any command for changing resolution.

the xrandr command is used to change resolution via the command line. Can you please explain exactly what else you are looking to accomplish?

I mean I can change resolution just with these two commands or no we have more commands.

I do not know of another cli based command that changes the x11 display properties, however xrandr has plenty of options which you can combine to get your desired video configuration. you can view the manual page at http://www.manpagez.com/man/1/xrandr/ to review the other options.
