    Welcome aslantek87. The tools for doing this actually depend on the video drivers in use, and the desktop environment.

    For KDE: System Settings >> Display and Monitor

    I'm not a Gnome user, but AFAIK there is the 'gnome-display-properties' applet. It should be available from one of the config menus.

    If you still have problems after this, please post your graphics hardware details, and desktop environment.

    /sbin/lspci -nnk
