Hello,I am a new user of #! and have the same resolution problem in VirtualBox.I cannot use full screen resolution even after installing additions.Have you find the way to correct this ?
I did the terrible mistake of installing the HWE stack last week. Since then my screen resolution inside VirtualBox has a maximum of 640x480. I am strongly disappointed since my notion of LtS was LONG and SUPPORT. I downloaded the .iso to install the guest additions (again). This failed.
What can I do to get the screen resolution working? The desktop is not usable at all.
After installing Ubuntu 14.10 guest on VirtualBox running on windows 7 host, I am stuck with 640×480 screen resolution. The ‘Detect Displays' button on the ‘Display Settings' Settings screen is not reachable, because 640×480 is too small.

I am using Fedora 19 KDE in a VirtualBox 4.3 as guest on a Windows-7-host (64bit). It's all good except the screen resolution. The guest additions are running but I cannot find my wished screen resolution. I want to have 1920x1080 but in the list of the KDE systemsettings for "vbox0" there is max 1280x966.
I have HP Pavilion dv6 6119tx system which has a screen resolution of 1366X768. But after installing fedora 17 on VirtualBox with Guest additions, the default resolution is 1280X768. Whenever I switch to fullscreen mode, I have some black space left on both left and right sides of screen.
Here is another question in my adventure with VirtualBox. I have Windows 7 installed in the box within Ubuntu 14.04. I can not get it into full screen. when I go to resolution settings in Windows, the maximum resolution offered for the guest is lower than the resolution of the host. Is there a way to adjust this?
Just a quick note for any others who may find themselves trying to max out the 1920x1080 screen on something like a Lenovo Thinkpad w520 after installing crunchbang in a virtualbox VM hosted on Windoes 7.Obviously to get anywhere close to this resolution you've got to install the guest extras, but even after doing this I found I wasn't able to configure the desired full resolution using
