Should i buy a new grahics card?


Hi,

I've been living in low scrn res hell since I installed 9.10. and although i've received lots of advice, nothing has got me back to my preferred spec of 1200 x 1600 @75/85 Hz. If its just a matter of me buying a more up to date graphics card, I'm willing to do it. But how do I know if that is a solution?

You need drivers, recompile your kernel and see if are avaible drivers for your courent video card. I have high rez. with integrated video.

Output of "lspci" would be of good assistance.

I don't play games so don't need a great card. Do I need a more suitable one?

You don't need a new graphics card. Heck, even though you said you don't do much gaming or anything it looks like that card probably would be able to handle it. The problem you are facing is either a driver issue, or an X.org error.

In fact, we can get this problem solved right here, right now.
This website will provide you with an easy to follow how-to to get your cards driver up & running. In fact, low screen resolution is a reported problem this how-to is said to fix. Follow that, and post back the results.

Ask, and you shall receive

Thanks for your interest.

Let me try to recap including everything relevant to my situation:

I have freshly installed Ubuntu 9.10 but have lost the preferred spec 1600x1200@75htz I had with 9.4.
My new /etc/X11/xorg.conf file was:



Section "Screen"

Identifier "Default Screen"

DefaultDepth 24

EndSection



Section "Module"

Load "glx"

EndSection



Section "Device"

Identifier "Default Device"

Option "NoLogo" "True"

Driver "nvidia"

EndSection


But as the live 8.10 cd offered me my old spec, I copied it in to 9.10. Thus:


# nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig

# nvidia-xconfig: version 1.0 (buildmeister@builder63) Thu Jun 25 18:57:07 PDT 2009



# xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server configuration file)

#

# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using

# values from the debconf database.

#

# Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page.

# (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)

#

# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*

# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg

# package.

#

# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated

# again, run the following command:

# sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

This improved the situation, but only by given me the better 1024x768@60.

I have uninstalled, rebooted, installed and rebooted with the Nvidia 173 which I believe should be an adequate driver. What happen at boot is, Ubuntu gives me the message:




"Ubuntu is running in low graphics mode



The following error was encountered. You may need to update your config to solve this.



(EE) NVIDIA (0) FAILED TO LOAD NVIDIEA MODULE

(EE) ***ABORTING***

(EE) SCREENS FOUND, BUT NONE HAVE USEUABLE CONFIGS"



Then i get 4 options:



"Run in low graphics mode



Reconfig graphics



Troubleshoot error



exit console"





Troubleshoot error leads to four more options



"Review Xserver log file



Review startup errors



Edit config files



Archive config and log"



I don't really understand these options; and this pge (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Bi...erHowto/Nvidia) is strewn with directions I don't understand https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Bi...erHowto/Nvidia. What should i do next?

Try this command:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

If that doesn't work out right, follow the directions listed here.

Another thing that would be nice to try is going to System -> Administartion -> Hardware Drivers. Does that say anything or ask you to do anything?

Also, lets check and see if the driver is working, if there at all. Go to System -> Preferences -> Appearance -> Click on "Visual Effects" tab and select "Extra."

First try this in a Terminal, and see what happens:


$ xrandr --output LVDS --mode 1200x1600 --rate 75

or, try:


$ xrandr --output VGA-0 --mode 1200x1600 --rate 75

What happens when these are done?

Looked that quote up on Google, and found this pertaining to screen resolution: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1320785

That is a a step-by-step how to. Try that and see what happens.
