Unable to set native resolution/ NV-Control extension not found
I am unable to set the native resolution (1680x1060) on my monitor (hp l2045w). I believe that n-vidia driver is the problem. I have the same error message each time I run nvidia-settings:
ERROR: NV-CONTROL extension not found on this Display.
ERROR: Unable to determine number of NVIDIA GPUs on ':0.0'.
ERROR: Unable to determine number of NVIDIA Frame Lock Devices on ':0.0'.
ERROR: Unable to determine number of NVIDIA VCSCs on ':0.0'.
I am attaching the bug report.
I am very very new to linux, so I need detailed instructions on how to fix it.
I appreciate any help. This far my screen has a standard (4:3 aspect ratio) resolution and everything is stretched and the fonts are distorted.
Thank you very much
