    new video card

    installed new video card today (geforce 8800 gt)

    now, the best I can get is 640x480 res.

    with or w/o hardware drivers enabled.

    anybody know how to deal with this?

    Re: new video card

    Backup your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file then copy the edited version of your xorg.conf (replacing all texts found on your current xorg.conf file) file listed below to your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file. Then restart.

    Code:

    sudo cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.bak
    sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    Here is your edited xorg.conf file:

    Code:
    #----------------------------Start copying from Here-------------------
    # xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server configuration file)
    #
    # This file was generated by failsafeDexconf, using
    # values from the debconf database and some overrides to use vesa mode.
    #

    Steady movement is more important than speed, much of the time. So long as there is a regular progression of Stimuli to get your mental hooks into, there is room for lateral movement. Once this begins, its rate is a matter of discretion.

    Re: new video card

    thanks iaculallad

    but it doesn't work

    i googled around a bit & can't seem to find anyone who has successfully handled this 8800GT + linux problem.

    looks like i bought another garbage video card.

    Try following up with this thread, seems like they had [Solved] the issue with GeForce 8800GT failing Xorg. Try post number 6 by PmDematagoda. Hope that will resolve your issue.
