I have installed and activated nvidia's driver but still on display it only shows only 1024x768 (4:3) and 800x600 (4:3).

My monitor's default resolution is 1920x1080.

nvidia settings also does not help.

Do you have more than one driver to choose from? Try any others. –  Seth Jan 17 '13 at 19:47
How did you installed Nvidia drivers? Downloading from the website or from the Ubuntu settings? –  espectalll123 Jan 17 '13 at 20:00
With jockey. yeah I had multiple options, but I think I chose the default selected one. –  Shadid Chowdhury Jan 17 '13 at 20:58
Jockey in 12.10 works really buggy. Remove the Nvidia drivers and reinstall them using Software Sources. –  espectalll123 Jan 17 '13 at 21:26
