    if the res manager wont let you change it the only solution is to install it to disk then manually change it if the drivers dont fix the problem.

    go into terminal and type..

    sudo -i (hit enter)

    nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf (make sure you type it exactly like i have it)

    you should see this or similar....

    you may have to manually edit your "modes" by adding the higher resolutions and/or lower your "defaultdepth" to 16.

    when your done editing that file i think you press crlt+x then confirm to save.
