Give dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

In terminal give the command " dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg "
It will u take u to default settings.. There you will find screen resolution options.. then make necessary changes however you want..

You can configure xorg.conf that the setting file in the /etc/X11/ .

Quote:
[root@CentOS ssh]# vi /etc/X11/xorg.conf
# Xorg configuration created by pyxf86config

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Default Layout"
…………
…………

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "Videocard0"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 24
Modes "1024x768"
EndSubSection
Another method :

Modify menu.lst the boot of menu in the /boot/grub/menu.lst .

Quote:
boot=/dev/hdd6
default=0
timeout=5
splashimage=(hd0,5)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
nohiddenmenu
title CentOS (2.6.18-53.el5)
root (hd0,5)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.18-53.el5 ro root=/dev/hdd7 rhgb quiet vga=773
initrd /initrd-2.6.18-53.el5.img
