Open the terminal.

 

Copy and paste inxi -Fxz  then press enter.

 

Copy and paste this and it will create a folder in your Home folder. sudo lshw -sanitize > lshw.txt

Just a normal intel graphics then, okay did you try to play around with the driver manager provided by mint?

Sometimes you have to play around with it

Well its probably too old for the intel drivers I just wanted to make sure if you had that option or not.

Okay then its probably treating it like a multi monitor setup.

What does your monitor settings say?

Is "mirror display's" enabled?

I don't know if "Mirror Display's" is enabled orn't..

Ah it looked to me you were using this monitor for the laptop thanks to your wording, sorry about that.

Is the monitor properly connected to your PC?

Its cool

 

Again double check your connections and ensure that things are connected right.

I see nothing stopping linux from detecting your monitor outside of actual hardware connection issues

I've checked some other forums, and many users with this Resolution does have the same problem.. with Linux mint but i'm sure all my VGA Cable's are working right.. there's nothing wrong with it :/ i hope it can be fixed, or that somebody (or you) can help me to fix my Resolution, but can we speak about that later, i'm tired :( I will be back around 13 o'clock or later, please follow this forum.. Goodnight, and thankyou that you will help me with this strange issue..

 

Cheers

You should be able to go into the "Control Settings" and under "Display" open that up and change the resolution.

 

What kind of monitor do you have, make / model / size.

 

I have a few old 15" monitors that will only run 1024X768 resolution.
