The native resolution is 1680x1050, but Ubuntu shall recognize it as 1600x1200, which squishes it vertically. Still works though great though, and it's worth it for a few more pixels.

After much research on installing the NVIDIA driver for my GTX-650 GPU, I see that the Nouveau driver is pre-installed. I don't need 3D graphics and will continue to use the default driver.I'm using an Acer monitor w/ native resolution of 1600x1200 pixels.
Kubuntu 9.10 Almost everything works great: Bluetooth, Wifi, card reader, 1680x1050 screen resolution, graphics composting, video out. Not tested: suspend, hibernate Not working: ATI graphics driver has trouble with 3D apps: Celestia, Google Eart...
My friend has a custom-built desktop/tower that runs Fedora and Ubuntu. Both have a similar problem: we can not get the resoltion any higher than 800x600. We have an Acer V223w with top resolution of 1680x1050.
Firstly, sorry if this has been answered somewhere. If it is feel free to just point me in that direction. I just installed Ubuntu 12.04 and I'm having issue with screen resolutions for my Samsung SyncMaster 2032 NW. It's native resolution is 1680x1050 (16:10) but I can't seem to get beyond 1600x1200.
