view story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – I have tried Ubuntu, Mint, and even Crunchbang. On all the *buntu clones I have the same problem with my nVidia 6100 card - no resolution higher than 800*600. What am I doing wrong here ???I have seen a number of similar posts and cannot for the life of me find the simple answer that fixes this. Thanks in advance if anyone has a quick fix - I just want to surf web pages and run youtube and misc office apps. For teh life of me cannot understand why does it not just run outa the box? caio!
