Default Re: Dell 8100 Laptop + Linux = FN F7?

Im very new to Linux so I will be no help to you at all, but Im having the exact same problem and Im looking in the forums for a solution. Im finding its because your screen size cannot be set to anything higher than 1024x768 in the "Screen size and rotate" manager.

Ive read that you need to install the nvidia driver for your video card. Ive download the driver, but I havent been able to get it installed.

First you have to disable X. Which I managed to do. Then you need to be able to run the install. I did but it said something about the driver didnt match my kernel. Im running the latest version of auditor.

I dont know how to run the nvidia-config program which I found on thier site. Can someone help us out?

I really like linux, but Im finding its challenging....not plug and play like Bill's OS. But Im not giving up yet.


Thanks,
Rich
