So I've just installed Ubuntu 11.10 on my old PC. It has an nVidia 8500GT, and the Desktop monitor is pretty old though; like 1998 old. I have installed the drivers using this guide: how-to-install-nvidia-2750907-driver at mygeekopinions.blogspot.com
It's a CRT monitor. Philips 201b4. I guess that's the problem.
Could you help me get 1280by1024 or something? Thanks
