This isn't good. Did an upgrade, graphic performance went down the tubes, and I'm stuck at 1024x768. It's a 1920x1200 monitor...
Do you think the next upgrade will fix it?
I reinstalled the nvidia drivers, tried a higher version (304->310), the "updates" versions, no dice. I was never able to install drivers from "Software & Updates" to begin with, but that's a different story. I got by using tty console, and guessing package names. It was working fine for awhile.

Edit: looks like I'm back in business. Followed nvidia steps in OP, I think specifically it was the nvidia-xconfig command that fixed my problem but idk. Guess there was something wrong with my xorg config. Now it looks like I'm using the plain oss drivers, which is fine by me.
