I've install Ubuntu 9.04 and display resolution is 800x600. I want to set it 1024x768 but there is no choice...my display driver is NVDIA...but I don't know how to install it...the CD driver is Windows version....thank you...

Hello, you can install your drivers from the nvidia website
http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

also you can use the restricted driver options in ubuntu
system->administration->restricted drivers

I guess it's like this (my ubuntu is in dutch so I'm not sure of the naming)


I hope I understood your question and that I might have helped you
