View Full Version : [ubuntu] need help to re-setup my video card after update

February 4th, 2011, 05:34 PM
I asked about this in another forum, but did not get any answers.

I just did an update of ubuntu (I'm still using hardy heron, and haven't updated in a while), but when I rebooted, my video was messed up. For some reason, It's running in an ultra-low resolution, and I can't seem to fix it.

I reactivated the NVIDIA driver, and then restarted, but before Ubuntu loads, I get a pop-up window asking me to select my monitor and whatnot. However, it's been years since I've had to tinker with the hardware on this system, so I don't really remember what I have. I just know it's an hp Pavillion dv6000 laptop.

Anyone know how I can get my display back to normal? Thanks.
