Displaying incorrect resolution

Post by iCheese »

I'm running Linux Mint 7 with GNOME. Using a Samsung Syncmaster 931BW monitor (1440x900 resolution) and I have a nVidia GeForce GTS 250. The monitor connects with DVI cables. 32 bit processor.

I've tried just about everything in the hope of there being compatibility, and downloaded and attempted to install. But each time it's given me errors. Can anyone help get this machine to work with the native 1440x900 resolution the screen uses?

Hey!

I just got a new monitor too and I had a heck of a time trying to get it to display at full resolution. The first step would be to make sure that your graphics drivers are updated. Do you have an ATI or NVIDIA graphics card?

It's an nVidia GeForce GTS 250. Sorry for the late reply, been having a lot of computer problems.

open a terminal and type 'sudo apt-get install envyng-core'
then follow the onscreen steps to make sure that you have the most recent driver installed for your graphics card.
reboot your computer and let me know what happens.
