I just installed Hardy (am having a lockup problem but that is another post). I selected enable on the nvidia restricted drivers and it installed the package. I rebooted. The screen comes up in 1024x768. I went to screen resolution, but that is the highest setting.

Under Gutsy (no restricted) I am using 1280x1024 and it supports up to 1600x1200.

Shouldn't I be able to at least match that setting?

Have you tried changing the screen resolution using nvidia-settings?

gksudo nvidia-settings

Thanks. I installed nvidia-settings and I was able to change the resolution. One problem down, one other to go.
