this is very very irritating i have ubuntu 8.04 with all the eye candy turned on and with the 3D windows and stuff like that,
now my screen res is stuck at 1440*900 @67 refresh rate and i want it to be 1024*768 @75 or 85(my windows has this combo).
since i have a CRT 17" 1440*900 is really bad and painful.

please tell me what i can do.
i did google and spent lot of time but they were of not big help.

when i try to change it, it goes back to 1440*900.

hv u updated ur graphics driver ?? it looks like it! :) coz this has made ur graphics stuck (set wud be a good word) to its NATIVE resolution :)
 
Even I faced the same problem with Ubuntu in my old PC
My resolution had stuck at 800x600.........
I don't know why that happened but I uninstalled Ubuntu after that
It works fine with my new PC with a 19" LCD

sorry for the late reply. the res was normal 1024*768 when i installed ubuntu.
after i updated the graphic drivers it went to 1440 thingi.
i also installed compiz fusion, and i do not clearly remember which caused this.
