Getting a decent screen resolution
I have a problem getting a decent screen resolution. Hardware is a Foxconn 760gxk8mc m/board AMD Athlon64 3400 cpu witha nvidea gforce 5200 512mb agp gfx card on a Samsung syncmaster 913n 19" monitor.
I currently run PCLinuxOS kde version and I can run at 1280x1024 screen res.
I want to try other distros but when I install them I cannot get better than 800x600 screen res. This is with Ubuntu, Fedora, Mandriva or Mint.
How can I change this?
