Alright, so here's my problem. I have an nVidia GeForce FX 5200. When I first loaded Linux 13 Maya onto this desktop, the max resolution was 1080x740. However, I am currently using a 26 inch LCD HDTV as my monitor, so that resolution did not suffice. My first mission was to simply update my driver, as I assumed if I did so, I would be able to increase my resolution size. To summarize, I tried to manually install the driver a few times to no avail. I followed several guides and they have left me worse off, at a new max resolution of 800x600. Does anyone know how to troubleshoot this?
I simply need the newest nVidia driver installed. I believe it is the Legacy Series 173.14.31 found here
Please help me reconfigure this resolution issue.
