    Nvidia 5500fx help

    Nvidia - Plasma TV
    Dear all,
    i'm a new ubuntu user. i just installed it be4 a couple of weeks, anyway

    i have a pc connected via VGA to my Plasma Tv "LG 32 PC5RV"
    using windows xp i can only get 800x600 @ 60Hz, if i go up more than that i got black screen saying NO SIGNAL, my VGA is Nvidia 5500
    so on ubuntu 8.04 i installed the driver which is "" and i enabled the effects BUT
    about the resolution i cant get except 640x480@60
    i tried to change the settings from the Nvidia settings but it didnt work out.
    also i tried from xorg.conf to change it, it is changed but the desktop was not fitting. so large icons or the screen so wide.....& stretched out.

    dont know what to do i tried so many resolutions but nothing fitted !!!

    this info i got after re-configure the xconfig:
    # nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig
    # nvidia-xconfig: version 1.0 (buildmeister@builder3) Thu Feb 14 18:20:37 PST 2008

    Identifier "Layout0"

    this happened after i reconfigured the xconfig

    i got now the 800x600@ 60hz and its working properly, but i cant enable the effects, nor the nvidia settings...
