How to force to 720p ?

I have a HTPC under ubuntu and a plasma in 720p resolution. In between, I have an amplifier (sony str-dg820).

So, the resolution my PC take on boot is low, due to the dialog with the amplifier (I suppose).

How to force resolution to 720p on the PC ?

Here is my xorg.conf :

Section "Monitor"
    Identifier    "Monitor0"
    Option        "DPMS"

Section "Device"
    Identifier    "Device0"
    Driver        "nvidia"
    VendorName    "NVIDIA Corporation"

Section "Screen"
    Identifier    "Screen0"
    Device        "Device0"
    Monitor        "Monitor0"
    DefaultDepth    24
    SubSection    "Display"
        Depth      24

No, durring boot is used console driver driver and it's resolution. Usually it's 640x480 ( or 800x600 with really big font ).
You must check if your FrameBuffer module is blacklisted ( in Ubuntu it's usually vesafb, vga16fb, nvidiafb and many more - I'm using vesafb because it's compatibile with everything and don't block nvidia kernel module to load as nvidiafb do ) and if it is then remove it from blacklist ( add "#" at the biginning of it's line ), add it to initramfs autoloaded modules, update initramfs image and add kernel option with desired/available resolution to your bootloader configuration.

Thanks for your reply.

So I added a # on the line blacklist vesafb , but for what I have to do next : sorry I have no idea ! ( linux noob :-| )

So I found elsewhere what it seemed to be done :

echo vesafb >> /etc/initramfs-tools/modules
modprobe vesafb
depmod -a
update-initramfs -k all -u

Even added

defoptions=quiet splash vga=871
in grub/menu.lst .

But at reboot, same problem... :-(

So maybe I missed something ?
