It looks like your xorg.conf forces 640x480 and you're complaining it does just that?

Re: ge force 4 mx integrated gpu, resolution problem
 
my xorg.conf is completely empty...I think that in new version of ubuntu xorg.conf is not necessary to run x server...

now I create a new xorg conf with
Code:

nvidia-xconfig
but I don't know hot to edit it..
Code:

# nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig
# nvidia-xconfig:  version 1.0  (buildmeister@builder75)  Thu Apr 15 05:52:31 PDT 2010

Re: ge force 4 mx integrated gpu, resolution problem
 
I just had exactly the same problem, and joined the Ubuntu users forum to get help.

With their help, I got my system going correctly.

the first thing was to go and install and activate the driver.

Then..

$ sudo apt-get install nvidia-settings
[it may already be installed, but if not - install it]


$ sudo nvidia-xconfig

then run..

$ sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Check that the vertical sync (refresh) rate and horizontal sync rate settings match your monitor specifications, and edit them accordingly. If you're not sure, make the maximum vertical rate to be 60.

Now reboot

You then can go to the monitor settings using the nvidia interface and refine the various settings there.

This worked for me
