Well thanks guys, you helped me up my resolution anyway. did th xorgconfig and it worked great, had to personally mod a few things such as video drivers for my nVidia card though before everything worked. GL jimothy05

Its not that hard.

Leave the device section Nikon told you.

In the Monitor section you need to change the following lines to read the same as those supported by your monitor. I think someone was kind enough to do the research for you and post those earlier in the thread.

HorizSync   31.5 - 50.0


VertRefresh 40-90
However, since you are using the VESA driver you may be limited to 1024x768 until you change your video card driver.

Hi there!

i have a very similar problem... did what was suggested here myself...

but I didn't try to hard... didn't have the time for that by now.

In the PC I'm trying to increase the resolution I have a NVidia MX 440 ... but in the xorg.conf is also only VESA mentioned by now... didn't install NVidia by now.

Do I have to install NVidia to be able to increase resolution?

Does the installer take care of changing my xorg.conf itself or do I have to make modifications myself? Which?

Thanks, this thread has already helped me a lot!

Greetings, Sascha

Go to nivida's site, download the driver, install it. Then take a look at the README or install instructions from the site. They tell you what you have to modify in the config file...
