nVidia GeForce GTX 555 with ubuntu 12.04
i've installed ubuntu 12.04 on a Dell Alienware Aurora R4 with nVidia GeForce GTX 555 graphics card.
I have two problems:
- booting: i have a purple screen of death on boot if i don't set grub to boot with 'nomodeset' option
- screen resolution: i have tried to install all kinds of drivers from nVidia and Xorg but none sees the correct max resolution of my screens (tried with 2 different ones), i can't set them on more than 640x480 (without nVidia drivers, using nuoance, i can get up to 800x600). I am now running on nVidia driver 302.something (BETA) which at least (using xrandr) sees that i have a DVI output connected and correctly sees the other DVI and the HDMI as disconnected (with previous drivers xrandr gave me errors). Also, in the nVidia control panel, it sees my screen as CRT-0 and it allows me to manually set a high res but if i do it leaves the screen to 640x480 and lets me "navigate" the screen in the desktop (as if i was zooming).
Anyone has had similar problems?
Anyone can help?
thanks in advance
