    Hi

    Yes i can do 1600 x 1200 in Windows. My screen also supports 1600 x 1200.

    However in Ubuntu it does say my display is unknown... (says it over the montor when i go to System --> Preferences --> Screen Resolution

    I just installed Nvidia Settings after your post (im really new to Ubuntu) - Im not sure where it has gone. Ive had this with other apps where some decide to show in the menus and others dont....

    e.g. Emerald shows under System --> Preferences
    Fenix dont show up anywhere after installing it.

    If you right click on the menus (where it says Applications, Places, System) you can edit what's displayed.

    I would check restricted drivers, and definitely Nvidia Settings.

    Has this thread been answered? I would like to start using Linux (Ubuntu) but I cannot figure out how to get things working. I have Ubuntu 10.04 installed on a Thinkpad A21p which is capable of 1600x1200 screen resolution but I cannot get it to show that as an option in System/Preferences/Monitors.

    Thanks for any assistance.

    Fred
