Default resolution stuck at 640x480

I am running Ubuntu 7.10 with a nVidia Corporation NV31 [GeForce FX 5600]. I have an IBM G96 monitor with refresh rates H: 30 -95 and V: 50 - 160.
With the open source drivers I get a resolution of 800x600 max. With proprietry drivers 640x480 only. I have used the Ubuntu "restricted Driver" method of install, then cleared the system as per instructions in these forums then downloaded and installed the driver from the NVidia site. Still stuck with the low resolution.
Here attached are my nvidia-bug-report.log and extracts from xorog.O.log and xorg.conf
Thanks Michael

Default Re: resolution stuck at 640x480

Got this advise on the Ubuntuforums site and it worked for me

i had the same issue, also with nv driver

i modified /etc/X11/xorg.conf so that 1280-1024 was the ONLY mode in it,
and added horizontal and vertical as :
Section "Monitor"
Identifier "CB773F-NJ"
HorizSync 30.0 - 69.9
VertRefresh 48.0 - 100.0
Option "DPMS"
to the monitor section.
after that, it did perfectly 1280*1024. if you try this, first copy xorg.conf to xorg.conf.good, so that if it fails and gdm won't start, you can change back through a shell login


Thanks barbo
