Changing Screen Resolution


I cannot seem to change my screen res, on the screen windos the only selectable options are 800x600 and 60Hz.

I've installed the NVidia drivers ( get the splash screen at startup) so i think they've installed ok, but i'm not sure tbh.

the monitor shows as generic motitor, so do i need some drivers for it?

Did you configure X? On the Nvidia driver website there is a text file link that tells you what lines to change.

Here is the readme I used...

ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Li...676/README.txt

Try running system-config-display, selecting the hardware tab, clicking "Configure" for monitor type, and then choosing "Generic CRT/LCD* display" *(obviously choose the appropriate one!) and selecting the resolution you want. In the past, when my monitor has not been correctly detected during install and defaults to 800x600, this has fixed the problem for me.
