How do I change my monitor settings?

Can someone please help me? I know very little about computers. My computer was not working at all and I had nothing to lose if I reformatted my hard drive, so I did. The installation worked and everything is up and running other than I can not get my monitor display settings to change the pixels I have no sound. I hope it is something simple but you never know.
Thank you, Derek

hi derek84 welcome to lq. to setup your xserver have a look at this guide.

read it thoroughly before starting the configuration, as there is information you'll need to have on hand to complete it. as afr as your sound goes w/out knowing what card or distro you are using i'll have to direct you to the alsa site for some reading.

good luck.
