Shaky screen


Please excuse me if this has been worked through before but I am totally new to Linux. I'm loving it so far but have one major issue. First off I am dual booting Windows 7. While in Win7 I have absolutely NO monitor issues. Since installing 10.04 I get a shaky unreadable display. To remedy the situation temporarily I have adjusted the resolution to 1200/800 but this is not a fix just a band aid. I should be able to run 1920/1080. As soon as I do this I get the shaky screen. I cannot change the resresh rate from 60 mhz. Again I am apprehensive by posting this because I have been flamed in other forums simply for being a noob and not knowing what to do but I would love to tap into the resources of you more experienced members. What can I do? Thanks in advance

Hi,

I would suggest this is likely due to a graphics card driver that only tentatively supports the graphics card (IE a generic series driver), it might be worth grabbing the latest linux/ubuntu driver and trying to upgrade to a more up-to-date and specialized driver for your graphics card.

If you need advice on what drivers you need, let us know, preferably with the model of the graphics card you are using if possible.

Hey thanks for your time and I'm sorry it took so long to get back to you. I have been dealing with the shaky screen by making the resolution bigger but I wish I could run at the 1080 resolution as this is native for my monitor. I don't actually have a graphics card I have Intel integrated HD graphics. I don't know if this changes things but I am totally lost. I screwed up my sound now so I have been trying to work this latest problem out. Thanks for your help. Johnny
