What card do you have? Do you have drivers installed for it?

My guess is you will have to go to system,display, then as su, set you monitor settings...If your display device is not listed, then look up your display frequency specifications and list those in the appropiate generic or vga area..
Goodluck,

i've found same problem as you before, what i did, firstly open "display setting" (system > administrator > display then click hardware tab then click configure in monitor section) select Generic CRT Display "Monitor 1024 x 768", click ok. Click on Settings tab, click on resolution drop down menu. your 1024x768 may be there.
