I have been using Linux Mint 8 for a few weeks now to do my web development work on. All was going well apart from a few times the screen resolution would switch to 640x480, normally this could be fixed by restarting the computer.
This is no longer the case. When I load up NVIDIA X Server Settings, under X Server Display Configuration it looks like :
Under resolution I only have the options 640x480, 320x240, and auto.
My monitor is LCD (No idea why it is listed as CRT) It is the only monitor attatched, the maximum resolution of this monitor is 1680x1050.
Under advanced the Mode Name is nvidia-auto-select, and panning is just set to 640x480 (the screen resolution).
I know I have to run the nvidia settings from the terminal to be able to save changes to xorg.conf but there seems to be nothing I can change to get my monitor to display correctly.
The X Server Information shows :
If anyone has any ideas on how I can fix this it would be much appreciated.
If any more information is needed please just let me know and I will try and add it.
