Screen Resolution

Asked by jimmyrai on 2008-09-01

I recently installed the Ubuntu 8.04 desktop edition. I somehow installed the ubuntu by enabling the noapic option and configuring the menu.lst file with a added line "noapic". It worked well for a few boot ups but suddenly suddenly during a boot up said "Cant detect the graphics card". And the resoluito i s only 640x480. I tried to change the resolution but no other option apart from 640X480 was available. Could yopu please help me.

My hard ware specifications:
AMD x64 4200+ processor
ASUS M2N motherboard.
2 gb ram
300+ gb hadd.
samsung screen
and 512mb graphics card from nVidia.(must be geForce).

Please help>>

It could be that was an update and you dont have the drivers for your Nvidia Card. Try to change your driver in /etc/X11/xorg.conf to vesa or nvidia. Then wait to the next update and look for a driver that work properly.

Bye

a better option is probably to run the following command:

sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

It does normally fix this kind of issue.

Good luck,

Rubén.
