How can I make Ubuntu show correctly on my netbook screen?

aseptilena February 4, 2011

Why is Ubuntu not suitable for my netbook, it’s mostly out of screen. Can I solve that? One of my friends installed Ubuntu, but it looks like it’s incompatible in screen size. Please help me!

    Perhaps you can try going into System > Preferences > Monitors and try a different resolution?

    Are you using the standard ubuntu edition or the netbook edition? The best thing for you to do is to try the ubuntu netbook edition and see if that solves your screen problems.

    I can only guess what "out of screen" means but it sounds a lot like
    (a) the screen resolution set within Ubuntu doesn't match your screen
    (b) neither the graphics card nor screen is recognized correctly

    You may also want to look into the compatibility list to see if your Netbook is fully supported and what fine tuning needs to be done.
