Cannot change my display to high resolution

Hi all,

i am one of the newbies with linux. i just install the Enterprise AS on my ibm z60t. I am trying to change the color setting to hight resolution, unfortunately, it does not work. it works only with the 256 color setting.

It seems the widescreen or the vga card of my notebook does not support. However, i have no idear of how to get this work with the high resolution color.

Could you please advise?

Thanks

It happens the same to me using Slax GNU/Linux. When I use Slax with nvidia, ATI, etc. I need to load specific drivers for enabling acceleration, but no with Intel chipsets. The bad thing is that a can not change resolution from the KDE desktop (perhaps editing xorg, I haven't tried).

As read in the link bellow you might need to modify the BIOS:

SLAX system modules 915resolution
