Help! Display stuck in 800x600!

I’ve always had 1024x768 display and I was playing around with the
refresh rate in “Configure Desktop”->“Display” and chose “Auto”. Now I
can’t undo the “Auto”, and I can’t change either the refresh rate or the
Screen size!

In X11 Configuration GUI, it still says 1024x768, but the screen is
showing as 800x600. What’s wrong? how do I change this?

What does ‘xrandr -q’ report? Mine for reference:

> dean@linux:~> xrandr -q
> Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1280 x 800, maximum 1280 x 800
> default connected 1280x800+0+0 0mm x 0mm
> 1280x800 60.0*
> 1024x768 60.0
> 800x600 60.0
> 640x480 60.0
> 960x600 60.0
> 768x480 60.0
> 640x400 60.0
> 640x350 60.0
> 512x384 60.0
> 400x300 60.0
> 320x240 60.0
> 320x200 60.0
>

Try setting one of the available modes with something like this:

xrandr -s 1024x768 -r 60.0

These commands should work as regular user. See how that goes.

Thanks. I already got it back up by resetting a third time through X11,
logging out/back in and then resizing the taskbar. Let’s hope it holds
up through the next restart.

One question, when I do the xrandr command, it has an asterisk next to
one of the refresh rates. What does that mean?
