My old 1280x1024 monitor died three days ago, and with some trepidation I have purchased a new Hanns-g HL198 widescreen monitor with a resolution of 1440x900. I was anticipating having to mess around a little with configurations to get the new resolution, but I needn't have worried.
I've changed my monitor from a 19" 4:3 to a 22" 16:9. This one can be used with 1920x1080 resolution that we have tested on an OpenSuse 11.1 and a Windows 7 machine. Now I'd like to connect it to my 11.3 box.
But under 11.3 it is not possible or I do not know how to change to a widescreen resolution. Not 1920x1080 but any.
I have a laptop with a Nvidia Geforce Go 7900 GS. This graphics card comes with a DVI and a VGA port. For some reason, Ubuntu will not allow me to use the DVI port on this laptop. I can only use the VGA port. In Windows, I can plug two nice widescreen monitors to this laptop, and use them in DualView. Ubuntu will not give me this, and I can only use the VGA monitor.
i have installed xubuntu 12.10 on my PC but the video card ( GeForce 8600 GT ) don't recognize my monitor.
i try the noveau driver but the max resolution is 640x480 i try nVidia drive proposed by GUI, the resolution still the same, i try the latest driver from www.nvidia.com, the resolution still the same.
Monitor: ASUS VW202S ( widescreen max resolution 1680x1050 )
I am new with Ubuntu and just now finished installing it on my desktop.
I have a Nvidia 5200 video card and LG W2362TQ widescreen LCD.
my problem is I cannot configure the screen resolution to be 1920x1080 which is what the screen supports.
hi, I'm fairly new at Ubuntu and Linux in general. With that said, I have been patient enough and resourceful enough to find most of my questions already answered by googling it or looking here. Right now I have been looking for days on a way to do this and i have found no successful answer.
I am using Ubuntu Jaunty 9.04 with the most current updates init
