[64 bit] Yet Another NVidia Driver Problem Thread

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Since I re-installed Ubuntu, I have attempted to install a working nvidia driver. Despite having a functioning NVidia Graphics Card (see below for specifics), I was never offered the chance to install the proprietary driver. As a result, I attempted to install the one from the repos (nvidia_experimental_304). After finishing this, I attempted to run nvidia-settings, only to get a prompt to run nvidia-xconfig with the message "You do not appear to be running the Nvidia Driver. Run nvidia-xconfig and restart x) After doing so and restarting the X Server, my resolution was reset to 800x600. (Hardware)
