Default 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.


$ 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
