downloading the driver - changing and saving the Nvidia resolution
Thanks to Jualin for the part in bold, the resolution is finally staying put.
download latest driver from Nvidia
sudo apt-get install build-essential libxft-dev
sudo /etc/init.d/gdm/ stop
sudo sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-177.13-pkg1.run
yes, ok, yes, ok
cd ... (optional)
cntr-alt-del ... (or sudo /etc/init.d/gdm restart)
> applications > accessories > terminal
This didn't work from the command prompt previously.
back to the desktop
> applications > system tools > nvidia X server settings
> X server display configuration
> "tab" to resolution
> "space bar" to open
> "arrow" to 1280x800 or whatever you want
> apply > save to X > quit.
