    When the driver ask you if you want your xorg.cong file reconfigured; say yes.

    Re: display keeps changing to 800x600

    I do pick that option, and I get a confirmation letting me know the other settings were backed up, but I still get what I describe.

    As I don't have anything worth keeping on the rig at this point, I'm going to try to re-install and then install the driver after all the updates come down, without picking any other apps to install.

    I'm wondering if I picked one of those NVIDIA installs available through add/remove and it's gooning me up some how? /shrug

    By the way, the way you worded that reminded me of 'Ghostbusters':

    "If someone asks if you are a God...you say 'YES'!"

    That's what I have done every time.

    I'm still looking for ways to get this to work.

    All you have to do is reinstall your driver (uninstall the other one automatically) Accept the License, let it compile the module into your kernel, and when it ask you about reconfiguring your xorg.conf file; say yes. That's all there is to it.

    Did you let the driver reconfigure your xorg.conf file?

    Again, yes, every time. I will do it again.

    I would just as soon do it manually but haven't gotten that to work either.

    Do you know how to edit it or do you need help?
