[ubuntu] nouveau drivers not loding, vesa ones are

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi All So I upgraded to latest ubuntu (12.04) about 2 months ago, and after the upgrade I was only able to get 1024x768 resolution on the desktop. I have a geforce4 mx440 (nv17) I played around with it for ages, trying the nvidia drivers and the nouveau drivers and the only thing I could get to work was the vesa drivers - stuck at 1024x768. Now, I gather that the binary nvidia drivers I need to use on my card are too old to work with unity (nvidia-175 I think) and I couldn't make them work anyway. I'd liek to use the nouveau drivers but I can't get them working either - I have them installe (Hardware)
