Broken In
I have a lenovo y500 FHD . It is currently running windows 8 but despite my numerous efforts I cannot run linux smoothly on it . It is really frustrating that all my friends are running linux distros for educational purposes but it looks tiny or blurry on my Laptop . I tried xrandr to force resolution and also tried installing in vmware but to no effect . Please help me force Full HD resolution on linux .

Which distro are you trying to boot into? What is the boot device for the linux distro (USB drive/DVD/etc)?

Debian, Ubuntu and distros based on them should support FHD natively.

Signs point to graphics driver. Install latest drivers no matter whatever the distro.
