Changing screen resolution on ubuntu server

1.To notice choices of resolution use hwinfo

sudo apt-get install hwinfo
sudo hwinfo --framebuffer

2.Edit file /boot/grub/menu.lst

sudo vim /boot/grub/menu.lst

3.Scroll to the end of /boot/grub/menu.lst and add 'vga=Mode_No' to the end of the 'kernel' line

kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.24-24-server root=/dev/mapper/ubuntu-root ro quiet splash vga=0x0336

4.Reboot so new config take effect

sudo shutdown -r now
