View Full Version : [ubuntu] Cannot select restricted nvidia drivers

May 22nd, 2008, 11:37 PM
I updated my acer aspire 1520 laptop to 8.04 recently. Everything went well but the inevitable graphics driver faff.

I have similar problems to others on the forum. Ubuntu boots in low resolution mode.

I cannot select the restricted drivers through the system settings, they are not there. I know what to look for as as I have previously done this in ubuntu 7.10.

I have tried installing the drivers with envy, but still nothing is working.

What can I do to fix this?
