  1. [ubuntu] Re: Dual boot, Win7 and 12.04 LTS, can't install Windows 7 SP1

    Evidently there is some updates that are related to the msftres partition, and it may be that setting that flag is necessary for Win7 to "see" that partition in order to update. Of course I had good...

  5. [ubuntu] Re: MBR no longer functional after BIOS changes?

    I too have tried to dual-boot (Win8+12.04) this particular model in UEFI. Unfortunately the process never takes due to the video never being relayed correctly to the ubuntu system after initial boot...
  6. [ubuntu] Re: NVIDIA graphics not installing, running @ 800x600!

    I do not use any VM's so I am not sure what could be going on there.

    I would still create some modelines for resolutions, and add them to the Monitor section, so that they may be picked up by the...
  7. [ubuntu] Re: NVIDIA graphics not installing, running @ 800x600!

  10. [ubuntu] Re: NVIDIA graphics not installing, running @ 800x600!

    First, what is the model of the monitor? Second, What does your current xorg.conf file have?

    I have them running without the swat ppa just the ones found in ubuntu's repos (no nouveau drivers).
  11. [ubuntu] Re: NVIDIA graphics not installing, running @ 800x600!

    The "required settings" would be the correct Horizontal Sync and Vertical Refresh Range for your particular monitor. Googling or searching the forums here will help with the creation of the xorg.conf...
  12. [ubuntu] Re: NVIDIA graphics not installing, running @ 800x600!

    You will need to create the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file (or re-create one if it exists) with the required settings for your particular monitor. I have a generic one that may help with creating one here,...

    [ubuntu] Re: Force screen resolution?

    Usually if there is a "tweak" needed for the monitor setup. then an upgrade will break that config and you will have to "tweak" again. I would suggest making a backup of the config (xorg.conf) once...
  15. [ubuntu] Re: NVIDIA graphics not installing, running @ 800x600!

    Nvidia's drivers always try to run in a "meta" mode (predetermined) so usually you have to specify the correct monitor settings with an xorg.conf file explicitly stating the HorizSync and VertRefresh...

    Probably the monitor doing the usual "no active signal change, so I will go into sleep mode" since there is no activity registered via a keyboard/mouse. I wouldn't think it is anything other than...
