I can't get my monitor to install in Ubuntu Linux. I have a ridiculous resolution of 800x600--I've tried installing and copying the driver files, but it hasn't worked out for me. Also, the drivers for this monitor aren't listed in the 'monitors' section in the preferences tab. I'm using an hp vs17e; if anyone can help me get this monitor installed, please let me know!

I don't think you need to install drivers for your monitor. You need to edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf to reflect the proper screen resolutions. If you can open a terminal as root or use sudo and type the command cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf and we can try to get you up to the resolution you want, max is 1280x1024.
