View Full Version : [ubuntu] Cant get desired resolution| Nvidia 8800

November 3rd, 2008, 06:06 AM
currently the nvidia server settings tool doesn't show anything higher then 1360x786, and neither does the perf->screen resolution.

Heres my current xorg, i already tried to follow other steps and none seem to work. Whats wrong with my config
(yes i added in those other resolutions, but it did nothing :| )

EDIT: 8.10

Try leaving only the resolution you want in your xorg.conf.

SubSection "Display"
Modes "640x480" "800x600" "1024x768" "1650x1080"

Get the HorizSync VertRefresh for your monitor.

And adding to the Monitor Section:

For example

HorizSync 30-81
VertRefresh 60

The resolution you select might not show in the perf->screen resolution. But doesn't matter, if xorg.conf uses your resolution of choice.
