    so i dual booted with Ubuntu and Vista which was easy. My problem is the screen resolution. its like its in safe mode, everything is bigger than it should be. so i look in the screen resolution and see theres only 2 options and none of them match my resolution which is 1280x1024 60hz refresh rate. so what am i supposed to do here to make it look normal? heres some screens.
    hmmm the screens look normal, but when using ubuntu its large.

    You have to install the drivers for your ATi / nVidia card first, that's why the screen res is locked at 1024x768.

    Go to ubuntuforums. They will tell you how to fix it.
