You'll need to edit this file: /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Do you have a nvidia based display card?

If you have, and you have loaded the Nvidia drivers for the card, try running

Code:
nvidia-settings
from a terminal. There is an option there to change resolution, and then save the results to your xorg.conf automatically.
