800x600 video mode

After installing your ubuntu you might face the problem that 800x600 is the maximum resolution of your screen.
make a backup of "/etc/X11/xorg.conf"
copy/paste this code in /etc/X11/xorg.conf logout and login again then check your modes
This xorg.conf is for VESA driver (supports most unsupported cards)
