Question screen size on Debain

Greetings all

I know where to change the screen size however for some reason it does not show
1024x768 and I am shure I set it up to display that option when installing it (but I did install it three times so who know) any why how can I set it back so I can get the size I want?

Thank you

Did you use

dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86

or something else? Anyway, that is how you can modify your XFree configuration safely in Debian.

It sounds like you chose video driver that can't do 1024x768... perhaps you chose "vga" from the list? You'll have to choose a right driver for your graphics card. Or perhaps you chose too low refresh rates (horizontal and vertical) for your monitor.
