I am not certain that this problem belongs in this specific section, but I do not know where else to put it. I have a GeForce Go 7600, and am on Ubuntu 8.04.

It used to be that I would plug-in my TV into my laptop via VGA, change my xorg.conf file to include 1920x1080_60.00 and restart X. The laptop would start to display on my television. After a recent update (I think) This stopped working. The screen resolution application does not see my screen and nvidia-settings sees my screen as a CRT. I tried using nvidia-settings to configure the monitor, and then edited xorg.conf to include other display modes, but the only result that I have been able to receive is my TV becoming a 800x600@75 screen 'to the right of' my laptop screen. I have searched the internet and this forum, but have had no success so far.
