View Full Version : [ubuntu] Resolution problem

June 9th, 2010, 09:07 AM
I just finished installing ubuntu 10.04 on my desktop, but I'm quite frustrated on configuring one of the basic setting - resolution problem...

I have nvidia 9800GT with all latest driver installed [drivers enabled] and my monitor is BenQ FP71G+ and the resolution is locked on 1024x768 with "unknown monitor" status.

I've followed everything as this thread, as I experiences the same problem as this guy

It's really annoying when changes everything, still recognized as "unknown monitor". I've even tried xrandr, everything... NOT WORKING.

Seriously, this is becoming so annoying already...

Any helps :(?

Sorry for the double post, but I found out that...

When I'm not using nvidia driver, which I used sudo apt-get purge nvidia*, and reconfigure my xorg back, I can get highest resolution setting and my monitor is detected.

But when I installed back the nvidia drivers via System-Administration->Hardware Drivers, and restart...I'll get lowest resolution that is 800x600, or even lower...and my monitor will detected as "unknown monitor".

Anyway to solve this? Or should I not use nvidia drivers at all at the moment?
