Hey everyone, Linux Newb here.

i have been trying this all day.

I downloaded the LINUX drivers for my Intel video card, but how do i install them?

I want my resolution to go higher than 1024X768, i know my card supports it, I was able to use it higher in XP.

need some help ASAP

thanks. unsure.gif

In xorg.conf or XF86Config-4, you can use the intel drivers by setting your driver from what is probably 'vesa' to i810

Also, make sure your monitors horizontal/verticle rates are defined correctly in your X config.
