I recently installed 9.04 (ubuntu studio 64-bit) on a HP Pavilion dv2715nr and everything so far is working okay except for the video. I can not get anything more than 800x600 with no monitors detected. I have fixed this in the past, but don't remember what I did to fix it. Any help would be appreciated and if you need more info, let me know and I will tell you what I can. Thanks!!

Okay, I know I need the nVIDIA drivers, but it is not letting me install them when I go to System -> Preferences -> Appearance, click on the Visual Effects tab, then click on the Extra radio button. I just sits there saying its trying to download them. Where can I get these?
