Laptop monitor issue.
I'm not sure if this is in the right area but i have a question. Could someone explain to me how to setup any version of linux so that my 1366x768 resolution to run. right now the only way i can do that is to connect to an external monitor source. It boots and all but i cannot see login screen and i can't see the desktop without using external monitor which can be seen when using the external monitor to login. i was just wondering if there is a way that i can get this pc to just run otherwise because i honestly would prefer to run linux than windows 7 which is currently what i am running. i will probably run ubuntu because it just works.
