View Full Version : [ubuntu] video resolution suddenly dropped

January 20th, 2009, 12:31 AM
Hi, I'm running a custom built desktop pc, triple booting Ubuntu, Ubuntu Studio & XP.
After a recent reboot the dektop resolution is now stuck at 640x480 (it used to be 1024x768)
I'm using an nvidia fx5500 card and using the 173 drivers.
This issue only appears with linux, XP is unaffected and before this they were fine.

Has anyone seen this before??

Thanks in advance for any help

I ran into this with an ATI card. I solved it by un-installing the proprietary driver, re-installing it, then rebooting.
