Please forgive the newbie question. Getting into Ubuntu and Linux. I've just installed Ubuntu 8.1 on as a virtual machine on my Windows XP laptop. It runs great except for only one problem. The screen resolution is limited to 800x600. The highest resolution option that I'm presented with is 800x600.

How can I increase the resolution? Do I need to install a video driver? My card is an nVidia GeForce Go 7900 GS.

Thanks,
CJ.

Hi - have you checked in System>>Administration>>Hardware Drivers to make sure the Nvidea driver is enabled?
