    Unable to change display resolution.

    Hello All, I have installed unbuntu Jaunty 9.04.
    I have a nvidia Geforce MX 440 with AGP 8x video card.
    I'm unable to change the display resolution. The only options available are Auto, 640x480 and 320x240 I would like to change to a higher resolution but no other option is available how can I change my resolution. Below is a copy of my xorg.conf file.


    # xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server configuration file)
    #
    # This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
    # values from the debconf database.
    #
    # Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page.
    # (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
    #
    # This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
    # if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
    # package.
    #
    # Note that some configuration settings that could be done previously
    # in this file, now are automatically configured by the server and settings
    # here are ignored.
    #
    # If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
    # again, run the following command:
    # sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

    Re: Unable to change display resolution.

    Have you also installed the nvidia driver for your card from System->Admin->Hdware Drivers?

    Re: Unable to change display resolution.

    Thanks for the response.
    Yes the driver for the card is loaded.
    It says This driver is currently activated and in use.
    Is there anything else I can check?

    Mumrah,
