    Sorry, I made a mistake earlier. Hardware manager is not there. I must have seen hardware driver and update manager and accidently put them together. What I see is what I wrote in the previous post.

    Once I go to hardware drivers I'm not sure what to do. There is nothing listed in the Component Column. I am not sure what to do from here. Thanks for your patience. I have just been running ubuntu off the cd. Maybe I should install it completely on my computer.

    Okay, we're getting somewhere. The restricted driver is not even installed which is why you can't enable it.

    See post #5 in this thread.

    I solved the problem. Apparently all I had to do was install ubuntu to the hard drive. Ubuntu must not want to install certain drivers unless ubuntu is installed completely onto a system, instead of just running off the cd.

    After it was installed completely, the option to install the Nvidia drivers came up in the top right corner without me even telling it to. I installed them, along with the other updates, restarted the computer, and now everything looks nice and crisp. The resolution is correct also. Everything fits well on the screen now. Thank you, overdrank and Bakon Jarser. I greatly appreciate your help.
