I just instal Linux Ubuntu and i try to change screen resolution
but i had only 2 choises 800 x 600 and 1024 x 768.
in windows 7 the reecomended resolution was 1366 x 768.
and i had Intel Graphics Media Accelator.
I had find something about edit x.config something but it confuse me.
Google is your friend.
I think your problem is dealt with on this link. Check out the section entitled "Enabling 1366x768 Resolution". Learn to use your search tools (LQ searching, google, etc.) and you will save loads of time and find solutions to most of your problems.
You really need to work on your communication skills. You say, "please explain in details[sic]". What exactly do you want me to explain? When I said, "Google is your friend" I didn't mean only the google forums. I meant searching for solutions for your problem using a search engine such as google.
well possible solution for this problem could be, Go to display section under that find out which monitor you are using, I guess it will be generic lcd or crt monitor over there, make sure you select appropriate monitor with suitable resolution which you require. You will find this option somewhere in either preference or administration under these menus try finding display. Under display you will find some thing like hardware or monitor type (something similar to that).
Click on the monitor and it will drop-down a large list like
generic lcd 640x480
generic lcd 800x600
generic lcd 1024x786
once you have selected appropriate monitor, then if you have generated "/etc/X11/xorg.conf" file make the back of this file and remove it from that location or simply rename it to some thing like "/etc/X11/xorg.conf-backup". Once you have backedup your xorg.conf. If "/etc/X11/xorg.conf" file exists then the xserver will read it and load configurations from that file. and you will see no effects.
change your runlevel to 3 and then again change it to runlevel 5
