You can change your resolution. What window manager are you using (Gnome, KDE, etc)?

Why would Linux cause low resolution problems? Is it a bug in the system that is commonplace?

you can check your GPU manufacturer if it supports unix systems. that is also normal on first installs of even Windows.

you can try checking first the conf in /etc/X11/xorg.conf. you can try to add the resolution for your monitor. you can paste your xorg.conf here.

Nice advice. The monitor i had seems to be getting the same as the TS, although it worked fine on the next boot.
