    Unhappy 640x480 , the only resolution available

    Hey all.

    Ive installed Kubuntu Remix , the one that comes with KDE4.

    After a successful installation , I installed and enabled the nVidia restricted driver.

    The problem is that I cant get any resolution higher than 640x480 , KDE settings , nvidia-settings or w/e , all of them show 640x480 as the highest resolution available.

    I tried editing the xorg.conf , but nothing helped.

    My monitor is Proview HD-572

    Geforce 7600GT

    What should I do ?

    Thanks.

    um, im no pro, so all the advice i have is to install the ubuntu desk top.

    but thats not why im here

    i really need to know how to make new questions.
    im new to the forums.

    if you really want my advice about the ubuntu desktop, use
    sudo aptitude install ubuntu-desktop

    thats odd. have you restarted the machine? when i first installed hardy, it only had 640x480, and i simply installed the graphix driver and restarted and it defaulted at 1440x900

    Go to the forum you want to post to and in the top right there is some text that says 'Forum Tools'. Click on this and you can add a new thread.

    When you go into your display settings, there are tabs for you to set both your video card and monitor. Make sure they're both right. My sister had a similar problem until I noticed that.

    Any advice in this post is worth exactly what you paid for it.
    Remember, folks, I don't use Ubuntu, I just support it.
