netllama, thank you for your reply. I have reformatted my system and installed it again and then, I thought, I might have done something wrong using nvidia's method of installation, so I used Albertomoleno's envy, and guess what? it just gave the same result.

When I open the desktop, and then go to xserver nvidia settings, by the way his envy program downloaded the same driver for me just like I would on my own, and then it did the installation for me. But the same problem happened. My monitor is seen as DFP-1 Monitor with maximux resolution of 640x480. The same problem happened to some people on the ubuntu forums: here are links to their posts: (and this is just for example)

1. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...20070624051447

fyi, I got the same error when I tried to change the resolution and this is what I wrote in the terminal:

sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg -phigh

and then it opened a blue scree within the terminal asking me to choose which video car I'm using and which resolution, so I chose nvidia, and resolution 1680x1050 and then it gave me this message:

xserver-xorg postinst warning: overwriting possibly-customised configuration
file; backup in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.20070624053451


so I thought I should also post my xserver configuration file around here:

sorry if I've repeated some parts headers because I'm typing this from a 640x480 resolution, so I was just cutting and pasting piece by piece.
