Ubuntu Multimedia :: Stuck With A Low Resolution With A NVIDIA GTS 250

Feb 26, 2010

I'm using Ubuntu 9.10 64-bit with a GTS 250. After installing the restricted driver from NVIDIA's website I get stuck at a 640x320 resolution. The only other option I get is 320x240. The resolution I need is 1680x1050.

I've also encountered this problem with a 9600GT.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Screen Resolution Stuck At 1024x768 - NVidia GeForce 7100

Sep 16, 2010

I am stuck at 1024x768 in Ubuntu 10.04 with the nVidia GeForce 7100. I installed the drivers suggested by nVidia on their website, but it doesn't seem to heighten my resolution any. 1024x768 is the highest which appears in nVidia X Server Settings.

# nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig
# nvidia-xconfig: version 256.53 (buildmeister@builder101) Fri Aug 27 21:34:01 PDT 2010
Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Default Layout"
Screen "Default Screen" 0 0
InputDevice "Configured Keyboard" "CoreKeyboard"

Is there a way to fix this without having to buy a new card? I've read that the GeForce 7100 is pretty crappy, but I've got no money to space at the moment.

Ubuntu :: Stuck At Low Resolution W/nvidia Drivers?

Feb 27, 2010

I currently have an nvidia 8600 gts w/nvidia restricted drivers and I cannot seem to change the resolution to anything higher than 640x480. Everything used to work perfectly w/the restricted drivers however I downloaded an update and it screwed everything up.

I have tried to edit my xorg.conf file but it seems that either i'm doing something wrong or the nvidia drivers are simply ignoring that file. I tried reverting back to the older versions of the drivers and that didnt seem to work. I tried installing the newest version of the nvidia drivers and that didnt work either. below is my xorg.conf file

Ubuntu :: Nvidia 9600gt : Resolution Stuck On 640x480 With Proprietary Drivers

Oct 20, 2010

I have a BIG issue with my fresh Maverick install : when I install proprietary drivers via the graphic utility, either one proposed, the screen resolution is then max in 640x480. But I have hardware acceleration and compiz effects !

I tried, I think, everything. Forcing the resolution in xorg, in monitors.xml, try the newest ones via the ppa, install an older (and used to be working I'm positive) one with .run (which just prevent any graphic display).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Screen Resolution: Stuck At 1024x768 W/10.04?

May 21, 2010

I installed 10.04 on my former windows box last night, and I seem to be stuck at a screen resolution of 1024x768. I have a Geforce 7600 GT graphics card, and I installed current drivers via the hardware drivers option. I can't go above this resolution in the nvidia x-server settings, and even xrandr says the highest resolution I can use is 1024x768. What is up with that, and how can I change it?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Resolution Stuck At 640X480 With No Other Options

Jun 14, 2010

I am a first time user and recently installed 9.10 from a LiveCd then immediately upgraded to 10.04 LTS. I had no black screen problem, but my resolution is stuck at 640x480 with no other options. I upgraded my driver to NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-195.36.31 and the resolution remains the same. I have a Geforce GTS 250 and an Acer H233H capable of 1920x1080_75.

My XFile:
# nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig
# nvidia-xconfig: version 1.0 (buildmeister@builder62) Thu Jun 3 09:41:37 PDT 2010
# xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server configuration file)
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using values from the debconf database.
# Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page.
# (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only* if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg package .....

I have tried entering a CVT generated modeline to the xorg file but it did nothing.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: NVidia 8500GT Card Stuck In 640x480?

Jan 14, 2010

I have just installed Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic on my HTPC, and it detected my TV (connected via DVI, so is a monitor effectively) OK, and displayed the proper resolution of 1360 x 768. I want to use the proper nVidia drivers which I've enabled using the restricted drivers tool in Ubuntu. On doing this, it has set the resolution to 640 x 480, and the nVidia configuration tool will not let me set it any higher.

1. The contents of xorg.conf are now irrelevant as of the last few versions of X?

2. The nVidia software is not reading the EDID information from my TV properly?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Resolution 1920x1200 Not Available In Nvidia-settings?

Feb 5, 2011

I just bought a new 24inch monitor that supports the resolution 1920x1200. Unfortunately, the nvidia-settings dialog does not have this resolution as an option (currently running on 1920x1080). The graphics card is Geforce 6200 (should support the wanted resolution), and the monitor is connected with the VGA cable (if that matters).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Save Screen Resolution Wit Nvidia Driver

Jan 27, 2010

Since I upgraded to 9.04 a while back I have had this annoying screen resolution issue. Every time I log into my Ubuntu system the screen resolution defaults to 1280x1024. My preferred desktop resolution is normally set at 1680x1050. So each time I log in I have to open the Nvidia control panel and manually set the screen resolution to 1680x1050. Even after logging out it will still go right back to 1280x1024 when I log back in.

But the funny this is I am almost positive the login screen resolution is 1680x1050 because the picture is crisp unlike the blurry and distorted picture at 1028x1024. I have tried everything from manually editing the x.org conf file to running the Nvidia control panel as root. Nothing saves my preferred resolution of 1680x1050. My Nvidia driver is version 190.42 and Ubuntu version is 9.04. The monitor is an ASUS VW192T+ which is detected by the Nvidia driver.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Override Nvidia's Display Resolution Selection

Jul 27, 2010

Recently I encountered a problem with a triple-monitor setup where the EDID was rejected by the nvidia driver (version 195.36.0, claiming that the EDID checksum was invalid. The maximum resolution that the driver would allow was 640x480. Searching through the X logs (/var/log/Xorg.0.log), I found the following message:

(WW) Jul 26 21:37:57 NVIDIA(GPU-0): The EDID read for display device DFP-0 is invalid: the

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Get The System To Save Resolution - Nvidia Card

Jan 30, 2011

Running Ubuntu 10.04 with an Acer wide monitor, 1600x900. The graphics card is a Gefoce 6200. When I run nvidia-settings I can select 1600-900 and it looks fine. I can "Save to X configuration file" and get no errors. However if I log out and back in, the resolution changes to 1360x768 which causes the tool bar at the top to be mostly somewhere to the left of and above the monitor. It makes life rather difficult when you can't get to the Applications and Places menus. I also tried nvidia-configure but it created essentially the same xorg.conf file.

This is the xorg.conf file generated:


# nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig
# nvidia-xconfig: version 1.0 (buildmeister@builder75) Sun Nov 8 21:50:38 PST 2009
# nvidia-settings: X configuration file generated by nvidia-settings
# nvidia-settings: version 1.0 (buildd@palmer) Fri Apr 9 10:35:18 UTC 2010


1600x900 is the native mode of this monitor so the driver shouldn't be getting any errors if it trys to set that resolution.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Incorrect Screen Resolution After Installing NVidia Drivers?

Mar 25, 2011

I know there are a lot of threads out there for same or similar issues, but nothing I found was working for me until, by sheer chance, I found this very simple solution on the Fedora forums. Too elegant not to share.Environment:Ubuntu 10.10nVidia GeForce 5500Samsung SyncMaster 225BWUsing DVI cable (in case it matters)Issue:After installing the proprietary nVidia drivers, the screen resolution was no longer the correct native resolution of the display. In my case specifically, the nVidia X Server Settings utility was detecting the maximum supported screen resolution was 1280x1024 while my display's native resolution is 1680x1050.Solution:Open a Terminal window.Make a backup copy of the original xorg.conf file. This is just good form any time you are making config file customizations.

sudo cp -p /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf_backup
Open 'xorg.conf' in a text editor.

Debian Multimedia :: Incorrect Video Resolution In Squeeze NVIDIA?

Jun 21, 2010

Having been using squeeze on my primary system for some time, I decided to install it on my media center PC. After doing a clean install I lost sound (another post) and my maximum video resolution dropped to 1280x1024. I was previously getting 1920x1080 (native) resolution under lenny on this box. So it's a mystery to me why I'm not getting that now. As you can see, the nvidia module is loaded:

# lsmod | grep nvidia
nvidia 9821382 0
i2c_core 12570 2 i2c_piix4,nvidia

PS--This was installed the "debian way" via module assistant.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE & VX20LHD Monitor - Screen Resolution In Windows 7

Sep 9, 2010

I recently purchased a cheap computer to use for everyday tasks. It came pre-loaded with Windows 7. The monitor I am using is a Vizio VX20L. It's native resolution is 1366X768. I have no problem with the screen resolution in Windows 7 but in Ubuntu, I am having some issues. I have the propriatary Nvidia driver installed in Ubuntu but for some reason I cannot get the screen resolution right. I am currently using a resolution of 1360x768 and the right part of my desktop is not on the screen.

I have tried to adjust the screen size using the monitor settings, but I still cannot get the whole screen to show up. If I set the resolution to Auto in the NVIDIA X Server Settings, it defaults to 1280X1024 and I can see my whole desktop, but it is streeeeetched. Here is some relevant information pertaining to my system:

I'm using Ubuntu 10.04
Integrated Video chip is NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE
The driver I'm using is NVIDIA accelerated graphic driver (version current)[Recommended]
screen is a Vizio VX20LHD

Ubuntu :: Broken - Stuck At The Resolution 800x600

Feb 23, 2011

It started when I first installed Ubuntu because I heard it was good and I felt like a change of OS, but it didn't recognise my monitor and because of that it was stuck at the resolution 800x600 (I think) and so it didn't quite look right, also it made going on the Internet really awkward, so I searched on the internet to find out how to fix it and I couldn't find anything that worked, so instead I installed Ubuntu netbook version thinking that it would recognise it because it is meant for laptops, so I put the ISO on a USB and it installed but if I tried to do it again it just tried to reinstall itself (I think it was just because I didn't delete the other Ubuntu) and so I just stopped using the USB, so I eventually gave up and tried to delete linux.

I used the Wubi installer for the original Linux so I used that (in the C drive in the Ubuntu folder) to uninstall it too which looked like it uninstalled it fine, I then made the stupid mistake of using EASUS (I think, I cant check anymore) Partition editor and deleted all of the linux sections and made the C drive bigger, after it finished that my laptop doesn't boot up and im stuck at a black screen with it saying to reboot and insert proper boot device. With it not booting I couldn't do anything, but then I remembered the USB and so I put that in and now it boots to Linux, but I really want my windows 7 back because this linux isn't even installed and wont install, the only way I can use it is by exiting the installer and then using the ubuntu that doesn't really look right and doesn't save anything I do. Is there anyway to get my windows 7 back or am I stuck using this?

Ubuntu :: Printing / Scanning Resolution Stuck At 600dpi?

I have installed Lucid 64bit and everything is working OK except for my printer / scanner.
I have a Canon Pixma MP520 and when I switched it on and plugged it in Lucid identified it and installed the necessary drivers.

I have tried printing and scanning (scanning using Simple Scan and Xsane) but I can't get any more than 600 dpi resolution (my printer / scanner is capable of 4200 resolution).I have tried changing the resolution in the scanning packages but the resolution stays the same.

Debian :: Display Resolution Stuck At 800x600

Recently when I rebooted the display resolution went to 800x600, where as before it was 1024x768. For some reason 1024x768 is no longer listed in (GNOME) System->Preferences->Moniters. Even after reinstalling Debian from scratch it's not there anymore. What can I do to fix this? System->Preferences->Moniters says Moniter: Unknown and stays that way even if I click Detect moniters.

My screen resolution is stuck at 800x600. I am using Fedora 11. The screen resolution used to go higher, but after a restart I have not been able to get it about 800x600. Below is a link to my smolt profile, [URL]This is my video driver Intel Corporation 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Family Graphics Controller. It is an onboard card. I have installed a new graphics driver which did not help. The name of it is, i915Graphics.tar.gz.

Slackware :: Stuck With 640x480 Screen Resolution

Sep 7, 2010

I made a total reinstall of Slack 13.1 the other day and all went seemingly well. After a lot of experimenting and deciding I wanted the disk partitioned differently, a reinstall felt about right. But when I started X the resolution was all too low. xorg.conf was adjusted with the properties of my screen (GDM 4011P). Once upon a time, the Xorg config-tool would ask me my opinion, but now it flashes by and I have to live with what it comes up with.

The nVidia driver was installed (legacy for GeForce 3). I know the config is read, because it fails parsing if I have kHz with the sync-figures. But it otherwise disregard my wish to run at 1280x1024. In XFCE I can run the nVidia configuration tool, but it offers only auto, 320x240 or 640x480. The screen is too small for me to click "ok" on several occasions. The machine is capable of 64bit, 2GHz. But I installed the 32bit version of 13.1, it has 1,5GB RAM.
