Default Problems with native resolution on Ubuntu

Hi, I'm having problems with Linux and my native resolution and my nVidia drivers... I am new to Linux and am using the latest Ubuntu (7.04 Feisty Fawn). Any help would be nice.

I have a GeForce Go 7300 ?

What do you mean by "native resolution"? What kind of problems? The more specific you are as to what drivers you have installed, how you installed the drivers, any error messages, contents of your xorg.conf file, what you are seeing on the screen, etc., will help people help you.

In addition to Tanker Bob's excellent questions, please start X with the following command:
startx -- -logverbose 6

and then generate and provide an nvidia-bug-report.log.

Thanks,
Lonni

Default Re: Problems with native resolution on Ubuntu

Native resolution meaning the resolution my screen is best designed for... if that makes sense.
I've installed the drivers Ubuntu has in the restricted drivers manager but Ubuntu won't let me install 1.0-9755, also how do I start X with startx -- -logverbose 6 ??

I have attached the files requested

Edit: I wonder if you could also help me with why my sound is so quiet...
Attached Files
File Type: bz2 nvidia.tar.bz2 (25.1 KB, 74 views)

The Ubuntu restricted drivers mechanism seems to have some issues. At least it did for me. Suggest you install "ENVY" program. Sould be available in Synaptic. I don't know where it will install to in KDE menu; probably "system" or "other". It can be run directly from desktop. It will auto-install NV driver after first completely uninstalling what's there now.
As for sound. Probably a setting in Alsa sound mixer. Right-click on desktop volume control and note menu. Open sound mixer and play with settings & volumes.
